Citrix SD-WAN for public sector – why it’s relevant & who’s using it?
Traditional data centres, hybrid clouds and an ever growing list of SaaS subscriptions. The way we consume services has changed significantly over the last decade but when it comes to the Wide Area Network (WAN), the architecture principles we use to deliver services to our branch users are often stuck back in the 90s.
As new digital services are adopted, the legacy WAN often can’t keep up with the increased demand and organisations are invariably faced with a choice. Accept that the user experience in the branch will always be poor due to WAN capacity limitations or, increase the WAN capacity, to allow sufficient room for new services, often at a significant cost. Put simply, WANs were never originally designed for the cloud so it’s time to have a think about the branch network.
This live webinar, hosted by Citrix and cloudDNA, will be taking a top down look at the principles behind Citrix SD-WAN, the typical problems that it aims to solve, the business case to justify the budget and the advanced features that will help you move from a 20 year old rigid WAN topology to an agile, efficient, cost effective cloud delivery fabric, powered by SD-WAN.
