VMware and VeloCloud

 

In November 2017, VMware announced the intent to acquire VeloCloud, the market leader in cloud-delivered SD-WAN that enables enterprises and service providers to deploy flexible, secure WAN connectivity.

 

VeloCloud’s cloud-delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to securely support application growth, network agility, and simplified branch and end-point implementations while delivering high-performance, reliable access to cloud services, private data centers and SaaS-based enterprise applications. With VeloCloud cloud-delivered SD-WAN, service providers can increase revenue and service innovation by delivering elastic transport, performance for cloud applications and a software-defined edge that can orchestrate multiple services to meet customer needs.

 

By acquiring VeloCloud, VMware will build on the success of the industry’s leading network virtualization platform – VMware NSX – and expand the company’s networking portfolio to address end-to-end automation, application continuity, branch transformation and security from the data center to cloud edge. This acquisition will further strengthen VMware’s position in leading the market transition to a software-defined future, and will enable enterprises to bring their businesses into the digital era with networking that is ubiquitous, open, programmable and secure by default.
