Traditional WAN architectures are not designed for the cloud.
As organisations adopt more cloud technologies such as Office 365, the existing traditional network provides more challenges with the level of complexity and end user expereience.
Cisco SD-WAN includes a set of functionalities addressing optional cloud software-as-a-service application access and infrastructure-as-a-service connectivity called Cloud OnRamp.
Cloud OnRamp deliveries quality of experience for software-as-a-service by monitoring software-as-a-service performance across diverse paths and selecting the best performing path based on performance metrics such as delay and jitter.
Hybrid cloud is simplified by extending the SD-WAN fabric into the public could as well as improving high availability and scaling.
