Most software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) vendors today provide an extended local area network (LAN) solution to protect and connect enterprise locations. We call this business connectivity. What an enterprise really needs is an SD-WAN solution that optimizes and ensures WAN availability. We call this business continuity.
For organizations with customer-facing systems (web site, customer care, sales, etc.), any application downtime has an immediate impact on revenue and customer satisfaction. From an internal IT perspective, when critical applications and data are not available, employee productivity suffers a significant reduction. Customer and employee expectations mean that critical systems now require 100 percent uptime. The key to limiting the impact of system failure is to fix the problem fast by providing rapid (sub-second) failover to alternative data center resources. How organizations achieve that is the challenge.
Access to the continuously available data center architecture relies on a high-performance, highly reliable WAN. Advances in software-defined networking (SDN) enable the network to support continuous availability via geographically distributed data centers. This session presented by Sonus will discuss the differences between SD-WAN business connectivity and SD-WAN business continuity— and why business continuity is a must for your network. Join us for a hands-on demonstration of how Sonus’ business continuity solution is helping State Street Bank and other customers keep business up and running around the clock, even in the event of disaster.
