Congratulations to the VMware NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud team for its recognition as a Leader in the first Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure! The report is the first Magic Quadrant that includes evaluation of SD-WAN vendors and to be named a leader with the position furthest on Completeness of Vision is quite an honor.
VeloCloud, now part of VMware, began with the idea to remedy branch networking issues because the networks of yesterday were optimized to haul traffic back to the datacenter, not to the cloud where applications of today are housed. SD-WAN has solved for this issue amongst a plethora of others, becoming a technology disruptor in a way that nothing else has been in decades.
SD-WAN has, in a very short period of time, transitioned from a networking “nice-to-have” to a necessary component of the network infrastructure. We’re excited to have Gartner recognize another key component of our rapidly growing networking portfolio and integral product in the VMware Virtual Cloud Network vision to provide the connectivity across cloud, data center, branches, end user, and applications regardless of where they will be used.
