RoundTower is partnering with the leader in software-defined wide-area networking, CloudGenix, to provide clients with the industry's only application-defined SD-WAN, delivering a CloudFirst solution and eliminating complex routing protocols and hardware routers. We will provide CloudGenix Instant-On (ION) product family to its extensive customer base in the Midwest and East Coast regions.
The traditional branch router market is shrinking as companies move to modern applications, including SaaS and cloud-based apps, which break under the weight of legacy infrastructure. Today, more than 20 million remote offices suffer from antiquated legacy routers and poor performance that stall innovation and day-to-day worker productivity. To modernize their infrastructure, enterprises are rapidly moving to SD-WANs. According to leading analysts, adoption of SD-WANs is expected to spike by a CAGR of 57 percent through 2020. RoundTower Technologies is at the forefront of this transformation with partners like CloudGenix.
"Our partnership with RoundTower Technologies will couple RoundTower's expertise in I/T architecture with our innovative SD-WAN solution to meet the demands of the modern business," said CloudGenix CEO Kumar Ramachandran. "Enterprises will truly be able to transform their network with a simplified, high-performance, and cost-effective networking model."
CloudGenix ION is designed to meet the needs of modern applications, including SaaS-and cloud-based apps such as Office365, AWS, Azure, Unified Communications, and VoIP. Network managers can leverage CloudGenix AppFabric to set up business rules and app-SLAs instead of complex networking protocols and rules, simplifying network configurations by up to 90 percent. Customers can now manage their WAN using policies based on business intent for applications and sites encompassing performance, compliance, and security. With CloudGenix ION, the network acts as a centralized database storing 100 percent of network and app flows, reducing fragmentation across devices, and providing access to actionable application and network insights.
"Our customers rely on RoundTower to manage their most critical applications, including Cloud and SaaS apps," said Rafael Velasquez, Practice Manager of Network and Collaboration at RoundTower Technologies. "By partnering with CloudGenix, we can now provide a much-needed, cost-effective solution that eliminates the need for routers and dramatically improves customer's user experience."
