VMware Recognized as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure

 
October 23, 2018
 

VMware Placed Furthest for Completeness of Vision within this inaugural Gartner Magic Quadrant comprised of 20 vendors 

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a leading innovator in enterprise software, today announced that it has been recognized, as a Leader in the inaugural Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure(1). The report, profiling 20 vendors, recognized VMware as a Leader in both ability to execute and completeness of vision, and VMware’s position was placed furthest for completeness of vision. Download a complimentary copy of the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant here.

“VeloCloud, now part of VMware, began with the idea of transforming branch networking. With VMware NSX SD-WAN, customers are finally able to rethink their WAN, adopting a software-defined approach that supports better connectivity, lower costs, increased efficiency, and the ability to execute technology initiatives that the networks of yesterday were unable to sustain,” said Sanjay Uppal, vice president and general manager, VeloCloud Business Unit, VMware. “We believe this recognition validates VMware’s vision of the Virtual Cloud Network for delivering pervasive connectivity and intrinsic security to applications, data and users wherever they are located, and further solidifies VMware as a leader in driving the evolution towards software-based networking.”

VMware NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud enables simple, agile and more secure branch connectivity. NSX SD-WAN combines the economics and flexibility of a real-time network overlay with the deployment speed, scale and automation of cloud-delivered services. With NSX SD-WAN, organizations of all sizes and in any industry can support application growth, network agility, and simplified branch implementations, and optimize access to cloud data centers and SaaS applications. NSX SD-WAN is available as a service or as an on-premises software solution directly from VMware or from a network of service providers worldwide.

NSX SD-WAN is a powerful branch and edge connectivity platform that helps enterprises connect any location across a heterogeneous, complex network with zero-touch deployment. The NSX SD-WAN platform enables partners to use the extensible NSX SD-WAN Technology Partner SD-WAN API (orchestration, control & data) and SDK, along with the NSX SD-WAN VNF framework, to seamlessly integrate best-in-class services and solutions for security, advanced analytics and even AI capabilities. NSX SD-WAN supports direct integration with AWS, Check Point, Forcepoint, Fortinet, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Security, Microsoft Azure and Office365, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec, Zscaler, and more. Additionally, as massive amounts of compute power is deployed in factories and farms, homes and automobiles, oil rigs and cruise ships, these disparate islands of data at the edge must be connected. NSX SD-WAN delivers this connectivity in a simple and powerful way while enabling the branch and edge to operate in a more cloud and “as a service” way.

About the Virtual Cloud Network

The Virtual Cloud Network is VMware’s vision for empowering customers to create a digital business fabric for connecting and protecting applications, data, and users across the entire network in a hyper-distributed world, With a Virtual Cloud Network, customers can create an end-to-end software-based network architecture that delivers services to applications and data at global scale from edge to edge, with consistent, pervasive connectivity and intrinsic security for apps and data independent of underlying physical infrastructure or location. NSX SD-WAN provides a common operating environment that extends the Virtual Cloud Network across branch, cloud and telco environments. With the VMware NSX portfolio, customers can deliver consistent networking and security across private data centers, AWS, Azure, and IBM Cloud, and with advanced support for traditional and modern application frameworks.

Customer and Partner Commentary

“At Hall and Prior, we’re leading the way in delivering high-quality aged care across Australia,” said Dan Beeston, IT Manager for Hall & Prior Aged Care. “Our ability to connect and protect our key applications and a range of users across our environment is critical to our success. Macquarie Telecom SD-WAN powered by VMware has delivered a network that’s fast and reliable. This enables us to connect carers and residents seamlessly throughout the day and keep business operations running smoothly and uninterrupted, while better securing sensitive information.”

“Businesses today rely on the cloud to power critical applications and communications tools, and an increasing number of organizations rely on public broadband to do so,” said Sanjay Srinivasan, chief architect at Vonage. “In partnership with VeloCloud, now part of VMware, Vonage pioneered the application of SD-WAN as an important element of optimizing user experience and business value when adopting unified communications as a service (UCaaS).

Frost & Sullivan Applauds VMware for Global Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) Market Leadership

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. DECEMBER 17, 2018

Frost & Sullivan today recognizes VMware with the 2018 Global Market Leadership Award for capturing the highest share of the SD-WAN market based on a recent analysis of the global software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) market by Frost & Sullivan. VMware acquired VeloCloud in 2017 for its strong cloud-delivered SD-WAN solution and service provider partner network, and it retained the VeloCloud brand while bringing it into the VMware networking and security portfolio. VMware now offers VeloCloud SD-WAN as 'VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud,' featuring a multi-tenant, multi-segmented architecture with a network of globally distributed cloud gateways including within service provider and cloud provider networks.

"VMware markets its solution through partnerships with global service providers, system integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) for both DIY and managed service customer preferences. We believe VMware's ability to deliver its solutions via multiple sales channels is a great strength," said Roopa Honnachari, Industry Director, Business Communication Services. "The company differentiates itself through its cloud-based solution that boasts a broad set of integrated capabilities, which include network overlay control, dynamic path selection, application performance monitoring, application access control, network and app visibility, and virtual private network (VPN) services."

VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud currently presents enterprises with the choice to deploy SD-WAN using a physical customer premises equipment (CPE) appliance, a virtual edge, or in the cloud. Leading service provider partners such as AT&T and Telstra have already begun to incorporate VMware SD-WAN as a virtual network function (VNF) on their uCPE. Frost & Sullivan market analysis reveals that 54 percent of the businesses wish to buy SD-WAN as a fully managed offering as opposed to a DIY solution.

Already an established name prior to its acquisition by VMware, VeloCloud, now part of VMware, gained additional brand strength and resources needed to scale globally following the acquisition. Enterprises can now take advantage of the full benefits of SD-WAN, extending the network from the datacenter to the cloud to the edge. Also, the VeloCloud Business Unit now has access to the broad network of VMware global partners and existing and potential customers are able to incorporate SD-WAN into their IT infrastructure seamlessly.

"VMware's cloud-delivered architecture has been popular with Telecom service providers, which integrate VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud solutions with their own core networks to deliver better application performance, speed up deployment times, and reduce bandwidth costs for their customers," noted Honnachari. "VMware's breadth of partnerships with global service provider partners and enterprise customers uniquely position it to capture the opportunities created by the industry preference for managed SD-WAN."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan bestows this award upon the company that demonstrates excellence in growth and customer value. Attaining loyal customers who become brand advocates allows the company to grow and achieve a market leadership position. By committing to the customer at each stage of the buying cycle and continuing to nurture the relationship, this award recognizes a company's increased market share over time.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

    I have been working at VeloCloud full-time

    Pros

    Hardworking employees that are smart, kind, and helpful
    Excellent company culture - team building events, parties, happy hour
    Transparency - it's good to have a pulse on your company
    Free food - but it's good food like fresh fruit, various coffee machines, a million snacks, - which is different from bad free food(cheetos) which they also have

    Cons

    It's a start up, so sometimes a process or documentation isn't there. Guidance is available but you just need to ask.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the culture change! Grow fast, but grow smart!
