Flex your Superpowers, SD-WAN for the Cloud Era

Category : Riverbed


Traditional Wide Area Networks (WANs) rely on decades old router technology built for an era where networks were static and data needed to be sent simply between client and server. Over the years, they have struggled to keep up with the rapid pace of IT innovation and have become increasingly complex to manage.

In today’s digital world, things have continued to get more complicated.  With the explosive growth of cloud and mobile, enterprises are dealing with hybrid networks, multiple service providers and a loss of control.
