No WAN is an island. While SD-WAN serves to modernize network operations, with improved performance, scalability, visibility and control the benefits are widely known. For IT departments around the globe, it makes connecting branches, and efficiently utilizing network resources easier than ever before, and we are only in the infant stages of this quickly maturing technology.


Recently, CloudGenix announced a new partnership with systems integrator, RoundTower Technologies, which empowers RoundTower to offer the CloudGenix Instant-On (ION) family to its East Coast and Midwestern customers.

"Our customers rely on RoundTower to manage their most critical applications, including Cloud and SaaS (News - Alert) apps," said Rafael Velasquez, Practice Manager of Network and Collaboration at RoundTower Technologies. "By partnering with CloudGenix, we can now provide a much-needed, cost-effective solution that eliminates the need for routers and dramatically improves customer's user experience."

The modernize movement is at hand, driving the current round of digital transformation, and as CloudGenix  noted there are over 20 million report offices struggling with poor performance and legacy infrastructure. Today’s SaaSy era simply demands more for the WAN, which is one of the reason analysts believe the SD-WAN space is set for explosive growth – to the tune of a 57 percent CAGR through 2020.

Diving head first into the cloud can seem like a daunting process, but with a robust SD-WAN suite like that of ION, a business can flourish during our SaaStastic times. Designed to seamlessly empower operations with the cloud, ION promises simplified network configuration, with customers able to manage the WAN leveraging policies based on business intent for applications and sites encompassing security, compliance and performance. 

"Our partnership with RoundTower Technologies will couple RoundTower's expertise in I/T architecture with our innovative SD-WAN solution to meet the demands of the modern business," said CloudGenix CEO Kumar Ramachandran (News - Alert). "Enterprises will truly be able to transform their network with a simplified, high-performance, and cost-effective networking model."

Operations begin with a business’s network. So, a high performing robust SD-WAN will offer a strong foundation for future success, where antiquated solutions simply maintain what was the status quo.
