BrandPost: Why Should Businesses Achieve Virtualization With SD-WAN

Corporations and businesses have begun to drop their traditional networking methods to virtualize technology and reinforce their digital infrastructure. With the implementation of a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), businesses have adapted virtualization to overcome the IT costs related to computing environments such as hardware energy consumption as well as maintenance costs. SD-WAN centralizes the complete management and supports businesses in the complete usage of all available network resources. 

Decrease Hardware Costs

Most of the businesses find the maintenance and management of hardware to be expensive and resource consuming. Virtualizing with SD-WAN benefits by reducing expenses, minimizing infrastructure costs, and decreasing hardware maintenance. Therefore, to reduce expenses, the digital transformation needs to go beyond simply retiring branch routers in favor of an SD-WAN framework; it must encompass a rearchitecting of the WAN and a shift toward a single platform that can unify network functions at the WAN edge including SD-WAN, routing, security, and WAN optimization. By doing so, enterprises can simplify and consolidate the WAN edge and begin to leverage cloud services, like security for example.
