Can SD-WAN really help organizations accelerate cloud adoption? Can SD-WAN technology end the dependence on costly hardware and instead focus on being truly software defined? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at the recent announcement of CloudBlades from CloudGenix and how it looks to help professionals leverage cloud software at the network edge.
Google Cloud’s recent outage offers system and application architects a teachable moment to illustrate how to better prepare your organization for such failures.
Disruption is a part of IT no matter how big or small. Cloud is a major driver of disruption today. How can you leverage SD-WAN to make your cloud migration a bit more successful while minimizing disruption? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at how Cisco Viptela can help.
Today’s episode considers if people want cloud, or what the cloud actually does.
