Depending on a single WAN path or carrier has become a liability that successful organizations will want to avoid when deploying and upgrading Wide Area Networks (WAN). Elfiq Networks enables organizations to ensure business continuity and improve network performance through innovative WAN path selection and, link balancing and bandwidth management technologies, optimizing the use of multiple concurrent service providers.
Adopting a Hybrid WAN infrastructure is a great way to leverage Internet bandwidth for Cloud applications while retaining the safety of traditional WAN solutions for legacy site-to-site applications. While Internet bandwidth is more affordable than traditional WAN links and often as reliable, MPLS still has an important role to play in strong network infrastructure; organizations should be able to benefit from both.
Elfiq Networks’ Flex Multipath Routing technology for Hybrid WAN deployments eliminates single points of failure in your network by using redundant telecom infrastructure and WAN path selection between sites. In short, it allows organizations to mix public and private for increased flexibility and performance.
With Flex Multipath Routing (FMR) and SitePathMTPX, organizations gain the ability to create VPN clouds and efficiently leverage affordable Internet bandwidth to supplement their existing WAN infrastructure. This will better address the needs of the organizations by offering a seamless Hybrid WAN that’s better suited to the ever increasing bandwidth requirements of Cloud environments.
Elfiq Networks produces improve network performance by allowing smarter bandwidth management, added flexibility and higher responsiveness. Devices can be selected among Elfiq Network’s wide array of products, either an LBX appliance, a VLBX virtualized instance, or the Cloud Connector. All VLBX Series are available for VMware, OpenStack and Microsoft Hyper-V environments, and the Cloud Connector is available for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
As we move towards cloud-based services and virtualized data-centers, more organizations rely on Internet services every day. Cloud computing shifts bandwidth consumption from within the enterprise to the global Internet and strains the infrastructure where the links are typically weaker, at the edge of the network. The major trend should be met by deploying flexible solutions that enable optimizing and adjusting your bandwidth supply in a cost efficient way to meet the growing demand on a regular basis.
