VeloCloud SD-WAN made more responsive to network troubles

VeloCloud Networks Inc. has added to its SD-WAN software policy options that make the technology more responsive to network problems that could affect application performance in branch and remote offices.

The enhancements, introduced this week, are delivered through software upgrades to the company’s cloud-based orchestrator and gateway and the VeloCloud SD-WAN appliance deployed at the branch and data center.

In general, VeloCloud’s technology lets companies combine T1 lines, MPLS links and other enterprise network connections with cheaper broadband, DSL and 4G consumer links. The subscription-based SD-WAN provides continuous monitoring, packet-by-packet traffic steering and link remediation to maintain network performance and reliability.

The new 3.1 version lets companies dedicate segments of the network for specific traffic, such as VoIP, a guest Wi-Fi or sensitive credit-card data heading from a retail store to the corporate data center. Organizations can set policies that provide multiple paths for a traffic flow. If performance for a connection falters, the VeloCloud SD-WAN will steer packets elsewhere to maintain a user-defined quality of service.

The on-the-fly correction is targeted at performance-sensitive applications, such as VoIP. “Not only can you set things up quickly, but once you set it up, the network will adjust,” said Bob Laliberte, an analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, based in Milford, Mass.

Other improvements include a more straightforward process for setting up an IPsec VPN between a VeloCloud SD-WAN and a non-VeloCloud location. Customers can also use the vendor’s orchestration software to deploy security services from VeloCloud partners and to apply group profiles when adding VeloCloud Edge appliances.

In April, VeloCloud introduced a partner program that lets third-party security vendors integrate their products with the SD-WAN service. Partners include Check Point Software Technologies, Fortinet, IBM, Palo Alto Networks and Zscaler.

VeloCloud claims outcome-driven networking in SD-WAN

VeloCloud is marketing its latest upgrade as “outcome-driven networking,” a term not widely used in the industry. Instead, networking vendors and some analyst firms are pushing an approach called “intent-based networking,” which uses GUI-based tools to abstract the many complicated technical steps underpinning the delivery of services.

Earlier this month, virtualization vendor VMware announced plans to acquire VeloCloud for an undisclosed sum. If completed in early February as planned, the acquisition would place VMware in head-to-head competition with Cisco in the branch office. In August, Cisco acquired VeloCloud rival Viptela for $610 million.

Wanted – GPU, ideally 980Ti or similar + CPU, mainboard and RAM – i5 / i7 Haswell or higher

Hi all!

I had no luck sourcing the hardware I was looking for over Black Friday (like an idiot I thought there may have been some drops on Coffee Lake but no good).

I’ve since realised that what with Ryzen 2 out early next year, and Coffee Lake probably going to drop in price once supplies improve, I’ll do what I normally do and aim a couple of generations before, because I’m too impatient to wait that long, and I reckon older hardware will depreciate less.

I’m on i5 2500K @ 4.2GHz with a 780Ti at the moment, and want to feel a *significant* improvement @ 1440p since my main monitor is that resolution.

I looked at Ryzen (which has been at good prices) but I’ve been stung by being an ‘early adopter’ on AMD / ATI stuff before, and while I know it’s been out for a while, I’m still holding off until clock-speeds improve, and ideally any niggles are worked out.

So – anyone got anything? I’d prefer K series Intel chips with overclocking friendly (Z series) motherboards. For graphics 980Ti seems like it’ll give me the performance uplift I need without paying 1070 prices – I did own a highly overclocked 980 (non-Ti) in the past and to be honest didn’t feel it was a big enough jump up from 780.

Wanted – Graphics card needed

Hi all,

I’m looking to get a new gfx card to upgrade my nephew’s pc for xmas. He currently has an old gtx560 in it so would need to be an improvement on this.

Ideally looking to spend about 50 quid or less. Had a quick look at eBay there and 760s have sold for under this so I’m thinking it should be doable on this budget.

Anyone got a card they would be willing to part with?

Thanks
