As demand for network capacity increases, enterprises are struggling to quickly deploy and scale their networks in response to changing business environments and hunger for cloud applications. Provisioning time, cost, and speed-to-connection have all become deciding factors for enterprise buyers, and taking months to provision a network connection is no longer acceptable.
Enterprises are heavily investing in SD-WAN driven by the need to build a digital edge closest to customers, employees, partners, and ecosystems. In this webinar, Equinix and VMware will share how organizations are building their digital infrastructure to be highly distributed, agile and elastic by using network function virtualization, and how virtualization allows you to consume network services with the same flexibility, scale and speed as cloud services.
In this webinar, you'll learn:
- Why and how multinational companies are modernizing their networks virtually.
- The pros and cons of key SD-WAN implementation paths.
- How SD-WAN and other network virtualization speeds time to value both in common use cases and black swan events.
- How VMware and Equinix provide the flexibility and choice to economically architect hybrid multicloud solution
