ExtremeCloud SD-WAN The Best Performance with the Lowest Risk and Complexity

Download PDF

ExtremeCloud SD-WAN expands on the traditional connectivity, continuity, and cost benefits of SD-WAN to deliver intuitive, secure, and financially efficient SD-WAN.

Network and security complexity and risk are rapidly increasing. Bandwidth-intense applications, hybrid IT environments, and distributed and agile workforces are all surging. Direct internet access at branches and home networks have increased the attack surface at a time when the risk and cost of a successful breach has never been higher.

As a technology, SD-WAN enables important cost, connectivity, and continuity benefits. However, SD-WAN can also be complex to deploy. It can pose tradeoffs between performance and security. Further, while commodity bandwidth and new transport technologies continue to make SD-WAN attractive to reduce cost and risk, many SD-WAN solutions are complex to purchase.

ExtremeCloud SD-WAN provides flexible, secure, and performance-focused solutions.

• Scale digital transformation and deliver consistently high-quality user experiences securely and efficiently with end-to-end observability, and secure SaaS and IaaS breakout with intelligent application performance visibility and control.

• Reduce risk and complexity with intuitive Unified Management for wired, wireless, and SD-WAN, built-in WAN security and traffic segmentation, high availability options, and flexible, all-OPEX subscription models.

• Simplify and automate services management and extend Extreme Fabric seamlessly to branch offices.

Best performance and productivity with the lowest risk and complexity

When paired with ExtremeCloud IQ, Unified Management with enhanced, end-to-end observability enables configuration, management, orchestration, and troubleshooting of Wi-Fi access points, Ethernet switches, and SDWAN devices, all in an intuitive experience that enables improved efficiency and effectiveness.

Intelligent application performance control automates application discovery for more than 5,000 applications, while Dynamic WAN Selection and Application Performance algorithms analyze and optimize traffic and Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation enforces an end-to-end, per-session QoS that ensures application performance goals.

Advanced application performance visualization and LAN-to-WAN-to-Cloud performance monitoring enable evidence-based decisions with actionable at-a-glance, real-time, and trend-over-time comparisons of performance objectives against actual performance as measured in the network.

Secure SaaS and IaaS breakout simplifies and reduces the risk of digital transformation. Policy based internet breakout controls access to SaaS applications. Maintenance-free cloud on-ramps to leading public clouds, such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, speed cloud migration, no VNF required.

Seamless extension of Extreme Fabric to the edge over low-cost internet access improves data security, site resilience, and application performance management.
