Pureport’s SD-WAN Connect: Bridging the Gap Between SD-WAN and Public Clouds
As more organizations turn to SD-WAN for branch connectivity as a replacement for traditional WAN technologies, enabling private connectivity to their cloud environments becomes more essential. It also presents new challenges
SD-WAN Connect, a new service powered by Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric®, eases the integration of a new or existing SD-WAN deployment with private connectivity to cloud workloads and data, without requiring a redesign of cloud network architectures. By placing the SD-WAN edge node on Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric, and adjacent to the cloud providers’ physical locations, SD-WAN Connect brings all the benefits of private cloud connectivity while making sure organizations can still take advantage of SD-WAN’s enterprise edge networking capabilities.
Pureport’s SD-WAN Connect Service for Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnectTM Edge Platform
Now, with Pureport SD-WAN Connect, Silver Peak users can build and manage private on-demand, branch-to-cloud connections via AWS Direct Connect, Azure ExpressRoute, Google Cloud Interconnect or Oracle FastConnect in minutes, and with no additional hardware required. Pureport’s patented Distributed Multicloud Router technology ensures multicloud deployments are easy and scalable, and removes the need to hairpin traffic back through a corporate data center.
Pureport’s SD-WAN Connect: Key Features and Functionality
Simplified Network Planning and Configuration
The workflow to bridge the Silver Peak SD-WAN Fabric with the Pureport Multicloud Fabric is simple and intuitive via the Pureport self-service Console. Pureport’s SD-WAN Connect places a Unity EdgeConnect virtual instance right next door to cloud services, bringing together the power of SD-WAN and the simplicity of cloud native networking. Additionally, Pureport’s Customer Support portal provides extensive knowledge base articles, step-by-step guides, and a highly trained support team is available to assist and troubleshoot any setup or connectivity issues.
Familiar SD-WAN Management
Deploying a Silver Peak Unity Edge ConnectTM SD-WAN virtual appliance via the Pureport Multicloud Fabric is quick and easy. The new endpoint is registered automatically in the Silver Peak Unity Orchestrator management console using Orchestrator’s standard workflow for zero-touch provisioning of EC-V. This makes the appliance ready for acceptance (authentication) and final configuration within minutes. Once deployed, the EdgeConnect virtual instance in Pureport is managed via Orchestrator, like any other EdgeConnect appliance.
On-Demand Cloud Connectivity
The Pureport Multicloud Fabric platform enables on-demand, cloud native networks between sites and cloud providers in minutes, not months. Pureport’s platform supports scalable connections ranging from 50Mbps to 10Gbps, with hourly billing and no contracts. Turn connections up or down as needed, resize them on the fly, or easily remove them when they’re no longer needed.
Full Mesh, Layer 3 Networks
Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric powers full mesh, layer 3 private networks. Built for high availability and outstanding performance, these networks allow each connected endpoint (e.g., cloud environments, on-premises workloads, customer sites, etc.) to communicate directly with one another through the Distributed Multicloud Router.
Pureport’s SD-WAN Connect service integrates the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform with Pureport’s Multicloud Routing Fabric. Silver Peak users can now enjoy the performance, security and reduced egress costs of private connections to the top cloud service providers, on-demand and in minutes via the intuitive Pureport Console.
