SDWAN Solutions Ltd launched the world’s first SDWAN Cloud on 5th April 2019 to great acclaim. SDWAN Cloud allows a single site on an SD-WAN real time access to every IaaS and SaaS instance and to over 250 data centres, globally – a real breakthrough for multi-cloud customer environments and a visionary, next generation product for an industry only just into mainstream adoption in the UK.

SDWAN Solutions Limited – a London based company, soon opening a European office in Brussels – offers an end-to-end, managed service provision with 100% core business focused on SD-WAN. SDWAN Solutions only partner with true SD-WAN vendors only such as Silverpeak, Talari and Velocloud, and offers complete SDWAN-As-A-Service solutions, including connectivity sourced from nearly 2000 suppliers globally. However, it is their passion for innovating the SD-WAN market that has driven this advance, and ahead of any other competitor globally. They are now inviting similarly minded, forward looking businesses across all sectors, to take up their offer of free proof of concept and welcome them to rigorously test their unique SDWAN Cloud, offering a free proof of concept period during Phase 1.

What are the benefits of the SDWAN Cloud?

Anthony Senter, MD explains how businesses will benefit of the SDWAN Cloud. ‘With around 88% of UK businesses using cloud-based applications from many sources, we’ve developed SDWAN Cloud to allow them to connect and disconnect their SD-WAN network to any cloud application in the world, in under 60 seconds and with no minimum contractual commitment – giving businesses total control, from a single portal. Businesses operating different SD-WAN networks can now, for the first time ever, link up separate SD-WAN networks, regardless of the underlying provider.

How does the SDWAN Cloud work?

  • A world first that allows SDWAN Solutions customers to self-provision virtual connections to almost every IAAS and SAAS provider instance
  • Connection to over 250 data centres internationally
  • Consumption based billing model – monthly commit or PAYU model
  • Spin up or spin down connections in under 60 seconds
  • Facilitate communication between different SD-WAN vendor solutions making multi-SDWAN networks a reality
  • Self-provision virtual X-connects from a central portal
  • No need to install and manage multiple instances of SD-WAN in each IaaS and SaaS environment

Will the SDWAN Cloud save money?

Businesses will save money by using the SDWAN Cloud as part of their SD-WAN solution to send data between over 250 international data centres on a PAYU model, without paying for a dedicated international connection. PLUS – customers no longer need to install and manage multiple instances of SD-WAN in every cloud as SDWAN Cloud accesses them all! SDWAN Cloud is the next logical step in facilitating multi-cloud environments, and just like an SD-WAN solution, can be controlled from a single location. Essentially, businesses will no longer be tied into contracts which are not cost effective, or be paying for lines they don’t use. This will deliver genuine cost-savings to businesses.

Free Proof of Concept for the SDWAN Cloud

Toby Sturridge, Chief Technical Officer, explains the company’s invitation to be part of their breakthrough innovation and take advantage of their free proof of concept period. “Our phase 1 launch is all about extensive testing and to ensure we cover every eventuality. So, we’re looking for live customers to partner with us and be part of this exciting project – simply click here to review the offer.

“If you have a multi-cloud strategy and are investigating SD-WAN as a future network topology, or if you currently have international circuits and are looking to reduce costs, or even if you need to join different SD-WAN networks together, we would love to include you in an innovative and no charge Proof of concept trial, to fully demonstrate the advantages of the new SDWAN Cloud.”

Anthony Senter, concludes. “We are fast building a reputation of innovation within the SD-WAN sector, emerging as trusted experts in all things SD-WAN, so we are delighted to bring this concept to market as a world first.”

“Our SDWAN Cloud not only gives the customer full control over their cloud connections, their SD-WAN estate is also reduced and customers can switch between different cloud providers in under a minute, in times of outage or degraded performance from a cloud provider. Plus, for the first time ever, companies can successfully run SD-WAN from different suppliers together in one network, very useful in times of mergers and acquisitions or where different regions use different SD-WAN solutions.”

What next for SDWAN Cloud?

Phase 2 will go on general release to the public immediately after Phase 1 testing with live customers has been completed and will include easy connection to security and perimeter-as-a-service products.
