Ensure Global WAN Governance (and save money) with Hybrid Network Unification


Published on

Enterprises need business continuity for critical networked applications, but face an explosion of demand
for less critical applications. There are strong cost management pressures on IT which make bandwidth
upgrades difficult/unaffordable. Discover how to combine carrier-class quality and availability (MPLS) with
high-bandwidth, low-cost Internet (VPN) - a hybrid networking strategy.

Ensure Global WAN Governance (and save money) with Hybrid Network Unification

  1. 1. Ensure Global WAN Governance (and save money) with Hybrid Network Unification<br />October 2010<br />Perform today, take control of tomorrow<br />Mark Burton<br />Product Management Director<br />
  2. 2. What is Governance? <br />Governance is the activity of governing. It relates to decisions that define expectations, grant power, or verify performance. It consists either of a separate process or of a specific part of management or leadership processes. (source Wikipedia)<br />What is WAN Governance?<br />Aligning the WAN to the needs of the business. Defining, verifying and guaranteeing the performance of applications running over the WAN.<br />A sub-discipline within overall IT Governance.<br />What is a Hybrid Network?<br />Hybrid networks use a combination of any two or more topologies (source Wikipedia)<br />E.g. MPLS/Internet; MPLS/MPLS; MPLS/MPLS/Internet;...<br />WAN what? Hybrid Who? Let’s define some terms...<br />2<br />
  3. 3. You’re on the way to the Cloud…<br />Private and hosted datacenters<br />Mobile users, home office<br />Hybrid networks<br />Public Internet<br />…and yet you need to <br />perform today <br />IT cost savings<br />Total business continuity<br />Business processes agility<br />Application performance guarantees<br />Private Cloud<br />Public Cloud<br />Public Internet<br />On-site Users<br />Mobile Users<br />MPLS<br />@<br />Ethernet<br />3<br />What’s the real challenge? <br />
  4. 4. “The network” is at the heart of all this transformation – but there are many challenges<br />4<br />How do you get full visibility over your global network?<br />Communicate clear data about application performance<br />Discover which applications use your network resources<br />Understand the root cause of slow applications<br />MPLS<br />@<br />How do you deliver business applications?<br />Guarantee voice, tele-presence and data over a converged network<br />Ensure excellent application performance to your distributed workforce<br />Manage social media and recreational applications<br />Ethernet<br />How do you save money on WAN costs?<br />Take advantage of the Internet as a business network<br />Reduce your bandwidth requirements now and plan for tomorrow<br />Get global control without deploying technology everywhere<br />
  5. 5. Why Hybrid Networking? … Performance<br />Performance is bound to available bandwidth and by distance<br />MPLS bandwidth is limited<br />Internet broadband is everywhere<br />
  6. 6. Why Hybrid Networking? … Continuity<br />Business continuity requires redundant network infrastructures<br />MPLS: 99,9%<br />MPLS + Internet: 99,99%<br />
  7. 7. Why Hybrid Networking? … Savings<br />Find the right balance between<br />MPLS value priced bandwidth<br />Internet cheap bandwidth<br />
  8. 8. Why Hybrid Networking? … Cloud<br />Get direct access to the Cloud<br />Don’t waste MPLS bandwidth <br />Don’t add unnecessary delay with central Internet gateways<br />Use local direct Internet accesses<br />
  9. 9. Aren’t Hybrid Networks difficult? … #1<br />Issue #1: Increased operational costs<br />Management of the PBR configuration is tricky, time consuming and error prone<br />
  10. 10. Aren’t Hybrid Networks difficult? … #2<br />Issue #2: Sub optimal performance<br />Links are under-used as PBR is based on static and local parameters <br />No contingency when link quality degrades<br />No ability to distinguish business apps based on layer 7 criteria (URL …)<br />
  11. 11. Aren’t Hybrid Networks difficult? … #3<br />Issue #3: how will it combine with other technologies: Visibility, WAN Optimization, QoS … ?<br />How do you report on it?<br />How do you control overall performance?<br />How do you consistently accelerate? <br />
