Not all SD-WAN solutions are created equal. The VxCloud Service Provider SD-WAN uses South African hosted Cloud Gateways that are strategically located in conjunction with Edge CPE’s (Client Premises Equipment), to deliver diverse networking connections to major cloud platforms and application providers. The SD-WAN service is focused on direct internet connectivity at South African hosted IP peering points. VxCloud SD-WAN provides Cloud VPN, security and augmented broadband networks that are cost effective, easy to setup and administer. We also integrate into your existing internet and MPLS infrastructures. We do Cloud Networking to perfection.
VxCloud Azure Networking connectivity is provided as part of the South African Cloud hosted networking solution. We designed our Azure Cloud networking solutions to work in conjunction with our SD-WAN solution, thus providing integration into our hosted Cloud Gateways. VxCloud will provide expertise to create Azure networking isolation, internet connectivity, Azure resource connectivity, Azure VNet design, on premises SD-WAN gateway connectivity and traffic filtering and routing. VxCloud is focused on providing Cloud Networking services that is both multi-tenant aware and cost effective.
VxCloud provides resources and expertise to assist clients with AWS Virtual Private and Public Cloud networking designs. VxCloud SD-WAN cloud networking services are integrated into AWS using VPN gateway services. We will assist clients in deciding on the best networking architectures for both cloud and on premises AWS networking connectivity requirements. Our AWS SD-WAN connected solutions are easy to support and use multiple internet peering points to connect client’s on-premises infrastructures with public cloud services.
With Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Lync Online, users get all the benefits of accessing their email, calendar, company resources, and communication tools without the need of an extensive infrastructure or a big IT department. Once subscribed, an internet connection is all that is required to gain access to the above-mentioned services from all over the world. Our cloud networking solutions provide route intelligence and bandwidth optimisation to support Office 365 connectivity for central and remote branch office support. Our O365 Cloud Network design is based on local internet peering in order to achieve faster O365 international connectivity. This enables clients to utilise normal broadband services to achieve the required O365 Quality of Experience.
VxCloud Managed SD-WAN
Virtual Intelegant Cloud Network
Virtual Cloud WAN
Small, Medium and Large Enterprise Cloud Networking to Perfection
Managed SD-WAN is a fully functional South African deployed Cloud SD-WAN. Deployed using high performance networks supported by carrier neutral data centres in JHB, CPT and KZN. Managed SD-WAN includes networking and branch office Edges with Zero touch deployment.
MPLS SD-WAN Overlay
Traditional enterprise network architectures are built around a hub-and-spoke, carrier MPLS networks anchored on legacy premise based data centres. VxCloud managed SD-WAN provides one of the best MPLS overlay networks with multiple features to support the client’s transformation to Hybrid Cloud.
SD-WAN Application Visibility
Having a view of all application traffic on the SD- WAN and the ability to control application flow as part of the Managed SD-WAN product. This is a unique feature available to clients. VxCloud will ensure that applications work without interruption, in the case of link failure or errors such as jitter, delay and packet loss.
SD-WAN provides a comprehensive, distributed security approach providing access to policies across the network. Managed SD-WAN from VxCloud provides WAN – network monitoring and VxCloud SOC-as-a-Service security integration. Secure networking achieved with integrated Edge firewalls.
SD-WAN Advanced Features
Cloud Gateways provide secure dedicated peering to industry leading cloud service providers with AWS, Azure, O365 and Google Cloud. Customer traffic can be routed to SaaS and IaaS through the closest gateway or edge location, lowering round trip times and increasing application performance.
Hybrid Azure Integration
SD-WAN Azure peering includes Express Route, VpnGw1, VpnGw2, VpnGw3, Basic and Virtual SD-WAN Appliances. Architecture designs include addressing the clients Azure cloud access, latency improved application performance and branch office requirements.
No matter what the company size, or amount of legacy infrastructure, VxCloud will work to solve any architecture and deployment issues moving to a hybrid and then dedicated cloud infrastructure. VxCloud is enabling the Cloud to support business growth for tomorrow.
SD-WAN Edge Cloud Security
Enabling integrated virtual firewall, URL and Web content security filtering provided by Zscaler and Fortinet. User and application based policies, malware detection and secure content scanning are integrated and managed as part of the VxCloud Managed SD-WAN and Cyber SOC-as-a-Service.
SD-WAN Network Peering
Managed SD-WAN includes the integration with Level 2 VLAN’s, MPLS and Internet Peering partners. SD-WAN is already peering with leading ISPs and services in NAPAfrica. Peering agreements with ISPs and intelligent routing providers are in place to reduce SD-WAN latency and support Cloud VPN services.
SD-WAN over LTE
We tested the Managed SD-WAN service on the South African LTE landscape (Vodacom, Telkom, RAIN, Cell C and MTN) for over a year and we have created a unique set of routing solutions and support procedures to compliment the VxCloud SD-WAN over LTE managed service.
Branch Office Network
Managed SD-WAN is best suited for the South African SME and Branch Office market. The ability to combine expensive MPLS networking and cheaper internet such as LTE and Internet Broadband is supporting the branch office and allowing for digital transformed voice, video and data enablement.
Cost Effective SD-WAN
We have deployed SD-WAN solutions for small client sites and clients with multiple branches across remote and local locations in South Africa. SD-WAN appliances and networking solutions are provided on a monthly services cost including all levels of support and escalation. Please contact VxCloud for a consulting engagement.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the focus point of the Cloud SD-WAN?
How would VxCloud go about deploying an SD-WAN solution? Do you have to rip & replace everything approach, or can you integrate with existing networks?
Does the SD-WAN provide load balancing? How about QoS in the form of local policy for priority traffic and bandwidth allocation? And QoS in the form of SLA support and traffic shifting between links?
What How much latency does the SD-WAN controller introduce, and under what circumstances?
When the VxCloud WAN-based SD-WAN tunnel endpoints are inevitably separated from the controller gateway due to a network fault, what happens?
What happens if a VxCloud cloud gateway fails?
How can medium sized organizations benefit from the SD-WAN and Cloud networking?
The SD-WAN solution can use any network to create enterprise based networking services. The perception that MPLS is still the best network is changing and no longer applies to services that are accessed in the cloud.
