Hybrid network unification

  1. 1. Hybrid Network Unification Enabling public cloud initiatives under full control while making the most of redundant MPLS + Internet branch architectures Peter H. Schmidt - CTO North America - Ipanema
  2. 2. A typical hybrid network with cloud • 2 service providers / 2 routers Data Center • Active/Passive case Citrix Sharepoint – The secondary network is Public Cloud only used if service is disrupted on the primary - all traffic backhauled via MPLS to the DC by default MPLS @ • Active/Active case – Policy Based Routing is used to direct a subset of the possible traffic flows to the secondary network Branch
  3. 3. Hybrid networks are difficult - 1 Data Center Citrix Sharepoint • Added costs in operation Public Cloud – Management of the tunnels – Management of the policy based routing MPLS @ configuration is tricky, time consuming and error prone Branch
  4. 4. Hybrid networks are difficult - 2 Data Center • With current technology, Citrix Sharepoint hybrid networks are under Public Cloud exploited – PBR = a static approach, location-dependent – does not handle the time- MPLS @ varying quality of the link or layer 7 application classification of the traffic flows Branch
  5. 5. Hybrid networks are difficult - 3 Data Center • How will it mesh with other technologies: Citrix Sharepoint Visibility, WAN Public Cloud Optimization, QoS … ? – How do you report on it? – How do you control MPLS @ overall performance? – How do you deal with variations in performance? Branch
  6. 6. Solution: Hybrid Network Unification Data Center • Automatic configuration Citrix Sharepoint management Public Cloud • Dynamically responds to real- world conditions • Completely integrated with other critical technology for: MPLS @ – Visibility – Control – WAN Optimization – QoS Branch
  7. 7. Hybrid Network Unification benefits • Guaranteed good application performance across the hybrid network [MPLS + Internet + Public Cloud] • Improved business continuity • Full usage of high speed, low cost links • Localized Internet connectivity for high performance, but with full control and reporting for compliance • Backup links become business links
