Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
Many businesses are adopting a multi-cloud infrastructure. However, managing data and communication between multiple cloud environments is often challenging and complex. Therefore, companies often try to find a technical partner that can help them. Companies with on-premise data centers need some type of interconnect to access their products and services hosted on the cloud. The traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection method usually can’t meet enterprise speed,stability, security, and compliance requirements.This whitepaper describes the challenges that companies face when building dedicated connections between different cloud environments and how Alibaba Cloud’s Express Connect is the perfect solution for them
This whitepaper provides an overview of how Craigs International leveraged Alibaba Cloud’s technology solutions, including Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), Virtual Private Network (VPN) Gateway, and Smart Access Gateway (SAG), to build a global enterprise network. Alibaba Cloud’s solutions helped them improve business operations, increase efficiency, maximize profitability, and reduce OPEX and CAPEX costs. Craigs International wants to move to the cloud to build a global hybrid enterprise network by partnering with a technology player that has such solid experience within Mainland China.

Una Red Privada Virtual (VPN, Virtual Private Network) ofrece el mejor retorno sobre la inversión en el aseguramiento de las comunicaciones. Sin embargo, la falta de confiabilidad de enlaces de VPN es riesgosa para las comunicaciones críticas dentro de las organizaciones. Constantemente las redes disponibles suelen confiar en varios proveedores de servicio de Internet para garantizar siempre la conectividad y aumentar el ancho de banda. La aVPN (Augmented VPN) agrega todos los enlaces de proveedores de servicios de internet para obtener un único túnel de alta capacidad. La aVPN proporciona una manera simple y económica de crear conexiones rápidas, seguras y de alta capacidad entre sitios y garantizar la conectividad a Internet sin interrupciones. Con un diseño de uso fácil, la implementación no requiere un equipo especial, software o acuerdos igualitarios de proveedores de servicio de Internet

Every few years a technology comes along that evolves the current approach to become more efficient and cost effective. Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) connects locations in a revolutionary way, but many “facts” about SD-WAN are more fantasy than reality.
Read “5 Myths About Enterprise SD-WAN” for clarity around the advantages and limitations of SD-WAN and how Forcepoint helps with its implementation.
For anyone that has ever had to worry about connecting a distributed network, software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is a big deal. It’s a drastic upgrade to the status quo, efficiently connecting locations with existing network technology like commodity broadband and virtual private networks (VPNs).
The old world of collaboration—desktops, wired network connections, virtual private networks, and clunky software—has given way to a new world of collaboration. Today’s generation of mobile devices, wireless technologies, and cloud capabilities has had an inexorable and fundamental impact on how people work together and share information. Collaboration is now device- and network-agnostic. It’s not just about being able to work anywhere and anytime, it’s about being able to connect to any document at any time. Read this CIO white paper to learn how to bridge the gap in the modern world.
A team approach and careful consideration of operational and security issues will pave the way for effective guidance. The drivers are many, but big draws include the potential for greater productivity — giving people anywhere, anytime access to information via devices they’re comfortable with.

Whatever the size of your organization, a business-class network is within your reach. By understanding and taking some simple steps, you can implement a network infrastructure that provides your company with significant and substantive benefits. From empowering your employees to greatly improving customer service, networking technology can have a lasting impact on your business.
When looking at networking basics, understanding the way a network operates is the first step to understanding routing and switching. The network operates by connecting computers and peripherals using two pieces of equipment; switches and routers. Switches and routers, essential networking basics, enable the devices that are connected to your network to communicate with each other, as well as with other networks. Though they look quite similar, routers and switches perform very different functions in a network.
Constantly available networks typically rely on several Internet service providers to ensure always-on connectivity and increase bandwidth. Augmented VPN aggregates all Internet Service Provider links to obtain a single high capacity tunnel.

Most service providers’ Virtual Private Network (VPN) security delivers little more than a promise to keep each customer’s data separated across a shared infrastructure. What are the risks of this virtual security model and how can it go wrong? This technical paper is prepared from an interview with Senetas CTO Julian Fay, in which these topics are discussed and practical considerations given for using encryption on VPNs to enhance organizations’ data security.
The business of taking care of remote hardware and software has never been bigger:-Managed systems and services for retail, point of sale, hospitality, and other distributed operations are a hot growth area.- Enterprise help desks manage an increasingly dispersed array of hardware and software.- Enterprise software providers are moving to managed services and other value added support offerings to preserve margins in the face of increasing price pressure.
"Agile companies push new application versions to production every few weeks, sometimes even faster. With super-fast Beta cycles being the norm, getting various user groups, such as remote QA teams, access to staging environments can slow down your delivery timelines. What if you could enable secure access for any number of users in 15 minutes?
BubblewrApp’s Service Access Service (SAS) is a turnkey, cloud-based service that acts as the first line of defense for your applications. BubblewrApp’s SAS enables its customers to grant easy access to applications deployed ""behind the firewall"" (on premise) or ""inside the Virtual Private Cloud"" (in a public cloud) from any remote location.
