CFN Services Uses Viptela to Improve Enterprise Cloud Application Performance & Security
CFN Services, the high-performance application delivery company for
hybrid cloud IT environments, announced the integration of Viptela's
software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) technology within its
AppHUB global application delivery platform. Viptela's SD-WAN technology
is deployed across the AppHUB global platform which
spans 185 markets in 41 countries and is currently used by several
customers with geographically distributed operations that rely on
real-time cloud applications to run their business. AppHUB's
high-performance infrastructure coupled with SD-WAN technology enables
on-demand integration of SaaS (News - Alert) applications via secure gateways over an
enterprise-grade Internet that avoids the congested public Internet.
Enterprises leverage AppHUB to simplify the integration of on-premise IT
and cloud ecosystems improving enterprise cloud application performance.
Since on-premise IT environments do not decouple the software stack when
applications are moved to cloud environments, application performance
and real-time data and collaboration requirements are impacted.
Combining Viptela's SDN technology with AppHUB's secure,
high-performance SaaS gateways, AppHUB offers enterprises ease of cloud
integration with legacy on-premise environments including remote branch
offices and mobile users.
The Viptela SD-WAN platform enables enterprises to "mix and match"
private and public IP connections such as MPLS, wireless LTE (News - Alert)/4G,
broadband and Ethernet to meet application requirements based on
geographic location, bandwidth and whether they are based in the branch
office, campus, data center or cloud. SD-WAN further strengthens AppHUB
security by providing device authentication and complete packet
encryption. With added security for SaaS data delivery over direct
gateways to enterprise IT environments, AppHUB extends the utility of
existing MPLS and public Internet services or potentially replaces them
"As the shift to cloud applications accelerates, we're seeing
enterprises accustomed to LAN-like performance struggle to meet user
experience expectations and maintain real-time application requirements,
" said Mark Casey (News - Alert), president and CEO of CFN Services. "Enterprises that
lack SDN resources can now leverage AppHUB to solve cloud application
security, performance, and management challenges through one platform,
with the benefits of SD-WAN technology built-in."
"For most enterprises, the cloud has become a central hub for storing
data and accessing applications, yet traditional networks are designed
to support on-premise data center architectures," said Amir Khan,
Co-founder and CEO of Viptela. "This results in long latencies, slow
response times and a poor user-experience. The Viptela SD-WAN platform
optimizes WAN infrastructures for the cloud. Our partnership with CFN
Services enables Viptela traffic to run on APPHUB for even greater cloud
