How it works
Cloud networking has become an integral component of enterprise environments, and plays a critical role in business performance. With cloud providers taking ownership of the virtualized infrastructure, they transfer the responsibility of building and maintaining the network from enterprises, meaning that enterprises no longer need to build or maintain their own network infrastructure.
This itself has been a driver for many enterprises to transition to a more cloud-centric approach. By deploying applications and workloads to a virtualized network infrastructure and integrating Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) at the edge enterprises can retire their expensive Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network, servers, and on-premise data center.
