How it works
Multi-cloud networking builds of the same principles as cloud networks, but comes with additional layers of complexity by deploying services over multiple service provider environments and regions.
In multi-cloud environments, we often see SD-WAN used as an intelligent edge that provides:
- The abstraction layer between the underlay and overlay – use any underlay, and design the network at the overlay layer
- Application-level and user-level policy management is critical for traffic classification, prioritization, and steering
- Advanced analytics help identify trends and anomalies in the network, even in complex multi-cloud environments
