Will it be Beneficial for Enterprises to Use One-Size-Fits-All WANs?

By CIOReview | Monday, March 2, 2020

Companies are looking for the one-size-fits-all WANs, which will join several networks from the local area if it fails when it is being used for modern hybrid cloud application architectures.

FREMONT, CA: Hybrid cloud is the widespread distribution of critical data workloads possible due to the applications developing in the data centers and public clouds. The advancement of hybrid cloud forced several businesses to think about the architecture of the network resources that are being used for connecting the highly distributed environment because of security, management concerns, and difficulty. WAN and other legacy networks were never intended for connecting application components in the cloud that does not have on-premises databases. 

The development of software-defined network solutions was done so that it can focus on the necessities of applications as the opposite users. The network does that by dealing with the significant technical incompatibilities along with management issues and performance that are witnessed in the legacy network connections. 

This type of application-driven network provides an enterprise-grade availability, and the flexibility of software-defined network management, and software-defined perimeter. These applications are generated so that it can be applied for faster-managed efficiency instead of loading the proprietary hardware vendors along with their old-fashioned delivery, management models, and support. 

Here are the three primary uses of application-driven network architecture. 


It is possible to implement a network anywhere in a moment by utilizing the standard set of management along with the control features. Separation of data and control planes permits a private point-to-point application connection that can be controlled by a central portal in every environment.


Applications with micro-services and the server-less app can be implemented at any place on the network that offers the connective tissue to the application components, distributed and managed across every network endpoint. In similar ways, how the infrastructure-as-a-service is managed as a code, the network can also be taken care of as a code within the present DevOps method and toolset. 


APIs can also provide access to every network function like monitoring, configuration, and management. More robust integration with ecosystem partners can be brought in with the open components.
