VeloCloud Presents Innovative Cloud Networking Service that Simplifies Branch-Office WAN

VeloCloud Networks Inc., a cloud networking services company, today announced availability of its comprehensive subscription-based WAN service for enterprises, which ends the unacceptable trade-offs between private lines and public broadband Internet. The VeloCloud service solves the application performance and networking problems faced by branch offices, vastly simplifies both branch deployment and ongoing management, and provides IT with greater WAN visibility and cloud-scale analytics.

“The VeloCloud service transcends the congestion, expense and complexity that plague WAN connections today, so that branch operations no longer struggle with a networking dilemma,” said Sanjay Uppal, co-founder and CEO of VeloCloud. “Our disruptive approach takes full advantage of cloud and virtualization technologies to both simplify and fortify the WAN, turning what is too often an inhibitor into a powerful business advantage.”

The VeloCloud service works by dynamically steering critical business applications over the best links and paths, while delivering comprehensive networking services to all branches with a few mouse clicks. With VeloCloud, branch sites can now achieve fast, resilient and secure application performance using even ordinary broadband links from multiple Internet providers.

"Our customers are excited by the dramatic improvements possible with VeloCloud, which enables a branch office to be deployed and online in hours instead of days or weeks,” said Uppal. “At the same time, VeloCloud adds to the enterprise's bottom line with 3x to 5x TCO savings; improves VoIP, video and VDI [virtual desktop infrastructure] performance by 20 percent to 60 percent; and offers better reliability than a single private line."

VeloCloud is the first company to provide all three elements needed for a cloud-delivered WAN: cloud networking, virtualized services and enterprise-grade Internet. The benefits of the VeloCloud service include:

  • Simplifying branch WAN deployment and operations
  • Making multiple inexpensive broadband links behave like a reliable high-bandwidth link
  • Replacing stacks of hardware appliances with a VeloCloud service subscription
  • Visualizing cloud analytics of application performance over multiple links for easy troubleshooting
  • Virtualizing network services such as access control, application-aware firewall, dynamic multi-path QoS and VPN
  • Providing a pay-as-you-go model for greater budgetary control and flexibility

VeloCloud serves an important and growing market

According to Gartner (“Forecast Analysis: Enterprise Network Equipment, Worldwide, 1Q14 Update”), the worldwide market for WAN equipment, not including services, is expected to exceed $16 billion in 2014.

“What virtualization has done for the data center, VeloCloud is doing for the WAN,” said Jim Metzler, president of the analyst firm Ashton Metzler & Associates. “VeloCloud is among a new breed of cloud services companies tackling the branch networking market, and their game-changing solution promises to comprehensively transform this important market. VeloCloud’s approach goes beyond things like WAN optimization and software-defined networking because it can act on multiple links of highly variable bandwidth and performance, over multiple paths and to multiple destinations.”

VeloCloud is targeting companies with multiple branch offices, in industries such as high technology, hospitality, retail, financial services and construction. A number of enterprise customers—including Roka Bioscience, Rockford Construction and RideNow—are already using the VeloCloud service in both trial and production deployments.

“VeloCloud’s solution transforms WAN networking by leveraging the economics of the Internet, the architecture of the cloud and the virtualization of network appliances,” said Alan Boehme, member of the board of advisors of VeloCloud and head of Enterprise Architecture, the Coca-Cola Company. “This is beneficial for any enterprise and absolutely the right direction for the migration to hybrid data centers.”

VeloCloud service available now through authorized channel partners

The VeloCloud service is available now through its authorized partner program of value-added resellers (VARs), system integrators and managed service providers (MSPs). Solutions built on the VeloCloud service deliver savings of 60 percent to 85 percent compared to traditional private WAN solutions, depending on services and features.

“VeloCloud’s unique approach allows Latus to bring the innovation needed to solve enterprise problems and build client loyalty for our value-added solutions,” said Kier Lane, CEO of Latus Solutions, one of VeloCloud’s authorized channel partners. “VeloCloud’s cloud-delivered WAN service eliminates the stack of appliances in the branch as well as the need for new equipment investment in the data center.” Latus is a specialized technology integrator that provides technology, IT consulting and managed services for leading enterprise, healthcare, retail and technology organizations across the globe.

VeloCloud subscription service comprises a Cloud Orchestrator, distributed Cloud Services Gateways and a Cloud Services Edge per branch.
