Viptela, Inc. has announced a solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows enterprises to seamlessly add AWS resources to their Wide Area Network (WAN). This relationship extends all the SD-WAN capabilities offered by the Viptela platform to AWS so resources can be managed and provide the same user experience as if they were hosted in a company’s own data centers. 

Viptela will demonstrate its SD-WAN platform integration with Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) at the AWS re:Invent 2016 Booth 131 from November 28 to December 2. During the same conference theCUBE will be interviewing Viptela Vice President of Product Management Ramesh Prabagaran and Keith Schafer, Network Architect for US Foods, a Viptela customer. 

All Viptela SD-WAN elements can also be deployed as Amazon Machine Images (AMI) in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud instances. 

The Viptela SD-WAN platform provides ubiquitous connectivity, zero-trust security, end-to-end segmentation with application aware SLA and QoS policies for enterprise WANs that span data centers, branches, remotes offices and cloud resources. It enables organizations to mix and match a variety of connections from different service providers including MPLS, broadband, 3G/4G LTE, satellite and point-to-point links and manage them as a single network. Viptela enables cloud applications running on AWS to provide the same user experience as if they were hosted in a company’s own data centers. 

“The AWS Cloud is becoming an extension, and in some cases, a replacement for enterprise data centers. AWS is being used to host applications, workloads and more,” said Ramesh Prabagaran, VP of Product Management & Marketing for Viptela. “We’ve made it possible for enterprises to extend their WAN to AWS Cloud resources so they can be managed like any other branch, and take advantage of all the quality of service and bandwidth optimization benefits provided our SD-WAN platform.”
