Cisco Systems and Google Cloud intend to discuss the difficulty of SD-WAN and cloud complexity with a new collective product, Cisco SD-WAN Cloud Hub with Google Cloud. This comes because more industries embrace hybrid and multi-cloud platforms.
During COVID-19 pandemic several companies are adopting work from home, at such stage networking is more complex with hybrid and multi-cloud.
Google cloud and Cisco have announced a partnership to join their products and produce what the organizations are describing as the industry’s first application-centric multi-cloud networking framework. Cisco SD-WAN Cloud Hub with Google Cloud won’t be accessible until the following year.
Shailesh Shukla, vice president, products, and general manager, networking, Google Cloud, explained that the solution will deliver an end-to-end network that adjusts to application requirements. It will allow secure and on-demand connectivity from a customer’s branch to the edge of the cloud, through Google Cloud’s backbone, and to applications operating in Google Cloud, a private data center, another cloud, or a SaaS application.
Mr. Shukla further explained that it is vital because handling, securing, and scaling the network becomes furthermore complicated when considering multiple clouds. Likewise goes for SaaS applications, on-premises locations, and geographies. The combined venture of Cisco and Google Cloud will help in simplifying enterprise network and thereby help IT teams reduce operational costs and match application service-level goals.
Increase in internet demand
Because of COVID-19, partners are experiencing higher demand for fast, simple, secure networking that helps staff working from home. SD-WAN and cloud are demonstrating important to these deployments, according to Nemertes Research. As of March 30, Nemertes Research measured 17% of WAN traffic as what it calls “outside-outside”; in other words, connecting a source outside the enterprise proper to another outside resource.
John Burke, CIO, and principal research analyst at Nemertes in a blog post that the current tsunami of work-from-home will swell that volume enormously.
