Download the white paper to find out more about next-gen IT solutions - and how IT in the cloud will help your organization not only keep up with today's complex IT ecosystem, but manage it more efficiently than ever before!
Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.

IT leaders are adopting hybrid WAN topologies to increase capacity and reliability while balancing cost and performance requirements. However, these hybrid architectures are often too complex, rigid, and fragile. As a result, many organizations are challenging the status quo of traditional networking. Read this Technology Adoption Profile from Forrester to learn why 90% of network managers are looking to evolve their WAN, and see why new approaches such as SD-WAN are required to compete in today's digital age.
Is your IT organization taking the proper steps toward successful cloud adoption?
Legacy networking technology is hampering IT agility. Cloud providers have initiated an agility revolution but secure inter- and intra-cloud network connectivity are still very challenging. Easier alternatives are either expensive, worsen application performance and/or hamper network efficiency. Riverbed’s unique SD-WAN solution helps unlock agility across the complete enterprise network allowing for easier deployment and management of cloud-centric networks. This cloud adoption Use Case outlines challenges and solutions for cloud-centric enterprise architectures including:
· Unlocking cloud agility through simple workflows in the WAN such as single-click secure connectivity to cloud and branch networks
· The importance of bandwidth reduction and application acceleration to ensure cloud adoption
· Distinguishing between application and network problems through enhanced visibility
