Interoute adds Cloud Fabric to its Edge SD-WAN service to drive improved application performance
October 2017 by Patrick LEBRETON
Interoute improves the experience for corporate application users by integrating its Software Defined Global Cloud Fabric with WAN optimisation and dynamic, application routing at the Edge.
Interoute, the global cloud and network provider, has launched Interoute Edge SD-WAN, a Software-Defined Wide Area Network service meshed into its global Cloud Fabric. This latest evolution of the Interoute Edge product family reduces costs and improves cloud application performance by intelligently managing connections to applications. Utilising the company’s Cloud Fabric, Interoute Edge SD-WAN blends public and private access networks into one dynamic application network. It ensures application traffic is directed over the fastest routes without impacting availability or needing costly, unused backup circuits.
The Cloud Fabric mesh is constantly adapting and re-routing itself, to intelligently optimise application data flows between local offices and the corporate private cloud environment and accelerate applications delivered from the public cloud.
Interoute Edge SD-WAN is delivered using Interoute’s global Cloud Fabric, which binds together 17 VDC (Virtual Data Centre) Cloud Zones, co-location facilities, Points of Presence (PoP) and third-party cloud providers with an ultra-low latency private network backbone. Sensitive information and critical traffic is delivered using this global private network and the application performance aware routing. Integrated network acceleration uses de-duplication and compression to reduce bandwidth requirements and deliver non-business critical traffic using a secure tunnel over the public internet. Low priority public internet activity is also passed through Interoute SD-WAN Edge Connect to ensure it is secure.
