IDG Contributor Network: When SD-WAN is more than SD-WAN

Network World

As the SD-WAN market has matured, one thing has become very clear: SD-WAN will not exist on its own. The technology is merging with other networking technologies, ultimately becoming a feature of a much larger bundle. Predominantly, we’re seeing security and SD-WANs merge. Just consider some of the activity: Velocloud recently announced its SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program to integrate with other security vendor’s products.

IDG Contributor Network: Can SD-WANs meet standards requirements?

Network World

I find SD-WANs to be facing a similar battle. It’s inconceivable to many that an SD-WAN could replace MPLS. At one recent client, a chemical company, the team was looking to transition from MPLS to SD-WAN. The security group, though, could not accept the fact that SD-WANs met the requirements stipulated by CFATS (Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards) guiding the chemical industry. CFATS professionals assume MPLS and firewalls to be mandated by the standard.

IDG Contributor Network: The new branch office SD-WAN model

Network World

Wrapping up an SD-WAN workshop session with a client last week, I reflected on how rapidly the branch office WAN connectivity and management model is changing. Some great opportunities are emerging for enterprise IT teams that can materially impact how the network is designed, paid for and managed. It reduces performance, and adds significant load at hubs on the network — not ideal when this can represent 80 percent or more of the traffic.

Step-by-Step: Extending On-Premise Active Directory to the Cloud.

IT Pros Rock!

In the scenario described in this article, we’ll be connecting an existing on-premise network with a virtual network in the Windows Azure cloud via a secure Site-to-Site IPsec VPN tunnel. Once the tunnel is connected, the Windows Azure Virtual Network can be treated much like any another subnet on a Wide Area Network (WAN) when provisioning network services that will run in a Windows Azure Virtual Machine. Define the Windows Azure Virtual Network.

SeanDaniel.com [tech]: The Basics of Local DNS for Small Business.

Sean Daniel

With the SBS 2008 and SBS 2011 the Connect to the Internet Wizard would analyze your network and determine a static IP address to use, and then ensure you like it before making it the server’s IP address. Ultimately SBS is a middle man in the peer to peer DNS infrastructure and gives the full power of DNS to the local network So how is SBS 2011 Essentials Different? Sean, I have setup my first SBS Essentials network for one of my clinets a couple of weeks ago.
