DIY SD-WAN - Digital Carbon

Is MPLS Needed

SD-WAN is rapidly capturing the market of MPLS, which was dominating for decades. But both technologies have their limitations as well as their advantages. Though infant SD-WAN seems reliant on MPLS in some major fields, this reliance is not unavoidable. SD-WAN can still altogether bypass MPLS. But it should not be recommended. A perfect hybrid of SD-WAN and MPLS can benefit business organizations in terms of cost-saving, increased security, reduced packet loss, reduced latency, and performance enhancement.

Versa vs Velocloud

Versa Networks and VMware are two major companies providing SD–WAN solutions. Along with other market giants, these are also in competition with each other by offering state-of-the-art capabilities to their customers. As we know,  each business has its own requirements oriented around its customers’ needs. Here, we are going to take a technical overview of the SD–WAN solutions that these companies are providing to analyse their usability for a variety of enterprises.

Digital Carbon 6 Benifits of SD-WAN

Organisations across the globe are rapidly adopting new technologies to meet customer demand during increasing market competition. It is necessary for their survival to keep pace with emerging trends in the market. Fluctuating customer demands, the introduction of new trends to the market and advancements in the technological sphere always cause big changes in the market.

Silver Peak vs Versa

According to updated reports of the Dell’Oro Group, there are five top SD–WAN vendors who are running toe-to-toe for supremacy in the SD–WAN market share. The year 2019 was seen as a breakout year for the adoption of SD–WAN when it surpassed a $1 billion market share. According to already mentioned reports, Cisco, Versa Network, VMware, Silver Peak and Fortinet are holding high ranking positions, as these top SD–WAN market leaders accounted for a 60% accumulated share in the generated revenue in 2019. But none of them surpassed a 20% share of the market, which shows a high potential for competition among the market giants for dominance. That is why these are still early days for penetration into the market.

VPN vs SD-WAN

An encrypted connection between two or more computers is called a virtual private network, commonly known as a VPN. These VPN connections are subjected to public networks, but exchange of data is private because of encryption. It becomes possible to share and securely access confidential data over public networks using VPNs. For example, corporate employees often use VPNs when they work from home or work remotely to access and share corporate files and applications securely.

DIY vs Managed SD-WAN

The world we live in now, is being driven by the explosion of data. With every passing day, the data traffic increases and creates new challenges to manage the infrastructure. Cost Optimization and Service Delivery are the two critical pain points of any organization. In the domain of network  connectivity, SD-WAN provides bandwidth efficiency with lower cost and seamless communication. The key benefit in comparison to standard WAN, is its significant application performance without compromising the data privacy and security.

Cisco vs VMware

No matter which market share report is considered, either Cisco or VMware holds the top SD–WAN vendor ranking. Both these giants have been battling for supremacy in the SD–WAN market ever since they  began to spend millions of dollars in this field. Cisco paid 600 million dollars to buy Viptela in 2017, and VMware paid 450 million dollars to buy leading SD–WAN startup VeloCloud in the same year.

How to Deploy DIY SD-WAN

We have seen a rapid increase in the deployment of SD-WAN by organisations of all scales. It is essential to understand the various methods of SD-WAN deployment. Generally, there are two approaches to deploying software-defined networking: managed SD-WAN providers and do-it-yourself (DIY) methods. In the latter approach, any external service provider is not hired for the deployment of SD-WAN. Instead, it is managed and set up by the company's own IT teams.
