Viptela, a provider of Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) technology that virtualizes WAN infrastructure, has announced a solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) that allows enterprises to seamlessly add AWS Cloud resources to their Wide Area Network (WAN).
“The AWS Cloud is becoming an extension, and in some cases, a replacement for enterprise data centers,” said Ramesh Prabagaran, VP of Product Management & Marketing for Viptela. “AWS is being used to host applications, workloads and more. We’ve made it possible for enterprises to extend their WAN to AWS Cloud resources so they can be managed like any other branch, and take advantage of all the quality of service and bandwidth optimization benefits provided by our SD-WAN platform.”
The Viptela SD-WAN platform would enable organizations to mix and match a variety of connections from different service providers including MPLS, broadband, 3G/4G LTE, satellite and point-to-point links and manage them as a single network. Viptela would enable cloud applications running on AWS Cloud to provide the same user experience as if they were hosted in a company’s own data centers.
All Viptela SD-WAN elements can also be deployed as Amazon Machine Images (AMI) in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud instances.
Viptela has been deployed at thousands of sites by more than 25 Fortune 500 enterprises. Major carriers including Verizon and Singtel are using Viptela to deliver managed SD-WAN services. Backed by Redline Capital, Northgate Capital and Sequoia Capital, Viptela has been named a ‘Next Billion Dollar Startup’ by Forbes and Red Herring 100 Company.
