BrandPost: Five Ways Unity EdgeConnect Optimizes SaaS Application Performance

More and more enterprises have migrated business-critical applications to software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings such as Box, Dropbox, Salesforce, and Office365. Backhauling SaaS application traffic to the data center and then to cloud is inefficient and adds to the latency experienced by the application. Therefore, many cloud-first enterprises are adopting SD-WAN solutions to breakout SaaS application traffic locally from the branch site to optimize SaaS application performance and deliver the highest quality of experience to users.

With local breakout from the branch, the Internet is used as a primary means of transport for SaaS applications. However, achieving MPLS-like performance over Internet is complex because of its unpredictable nature. Congested one day and tolerable the next, Internet “weather” undermines the consistency of SaaS delivery, even in regions with highly developed internet infrastructure. Therefore, it is critical for cloud-first enterprises to deploy an advanced SD-WAN solution that address performance concerns of sending traffic over the Internet. The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN Edge platform incorporates five technology pillars that optimize the performance of every type of SaaS application.
