SD-WAN cloud delivery
I want to share with you some of the dramatic transformation that’s happening in enterprise infrastructure in Australia, and the role Spooster’s cloud-based SD-WAN is playing in driving this transformation. Enterprises are going through a fundamental revolution in their infrastructure. The application world is fundamentally transformed by cloud technologies. Today, your applications can be located in the data center, in an infrastructure as a service, or in a Software as a service cloud.
Similarly, users are going to be transforming with mobility, no longer restricted to a desktop. Basically, they could be working from anywhere. So enterprises are looking for solutions that let users access their applications (which might be located anywhere) in a consistent and secure manner while saving costs.
The real issue here is that the connectivity between these two worlds is stuck in a technology that’s 20 years old call MPLS and VPNs.
Spooster is all about focusing on transforming this infrastructure, and creating this next-generation architecture that overlays the underlying technologies of MPLS VPNs, internet broadband, and LTE. The user can now access their applications in a secure way with the policy and security that’s defined by the enterprise.
- Application performance
- Cloud delivery
Existing use cases:
One of Brisbane’s largest retailers deployed Spooster’s SD-WAN solution fundamentally
transforming their store experience. They went from essentially a single connectivity for the point-of-sale machines, to be able to connect the point-of-sale machines to guest Wi-Fi with digital signage voice, and transforming their customers experience in the store because they were able to leverage the Spooster’s backbone infrastructure to deliver 200 megabits of bandwidth saving them close to a million dollars in cost over a four-year period.
Similarly one of our healthcare customers in Melbourne has been able to save about 80 percent of the time they used to spend in provisioning, deployment, and operating their WAN infrastructure. All this while increasing their application performance by 4x.
Combining the capabilities of a hybrid network with a cloud-delivered architecture, enabling reliable connectivity to the cloud.
With the applications moving out of the data center into the public cloud, it’s critical to have the ability of transformation and migration of applications, while still preserving the user experience. That because CIOs are really focused towards delivering a great application experience for their end-users.
How we do it:
Our fabric consists of four distinct layers. A data plane that is located on the customer site. Our control plane system that’s located in the cloud. A control plane is the brains behind how the connectivity happens for users and applications. A management interface in a single pane of glass that allows users to define policies and define their security framework. And finally, an orchestration or a policy plane where we were able to spin up different instances of our infrastructure, as well as allow customers to be able to integrate different services and capabilities. The control orchestration and management plane are hosted in the cloud and are managed by Spooster.
Our transformation approach:
We’ve taken a traditional network platform and disaggregated it in such a way that the control plane resides in the cloud. This makes our solution massively scalable, with the ability to orchestrate across a pretty large scale deployment. And, at the same time being able to create a very well-defined architecture that has fine-grained control for our customers.
