What is the VeloCloud managed, co-managed and DIY services solution?
VeloCloud provides a strong managed services solution. VeloCloud’s offering provides dynamic multipath optimization, dynamic virtual paths, centralized management and offers visibility of application performance on one managed device. VeloCloud’s managed services solution for enterprise customers consists of hardware, software and services. This requires SD WAN Appliances to be deployed in each branch office, with a data core placed in the datacenter. The SD WAN Orchestrator is deployed within the data center and allows users to configure and manage supported devices.
Service providers that deploy Velocloud can use multiple links to configure traffic steering to provide consistent application access and higher bandwidth levels. Some service providers may deploy the managed service solution using three-tier service levels to ensure smooth roll out and operation.
Employing a fully managed solution improves application availability and WAN consistency for a monthly fee with no need to self-manage or deploy. Some services that are offered by service providers can include: performance reporting, design, installation and 24 hour management and monitoring. This allows IT management to outsource standard operations, ensuring the ability to focus on core business needs.
VeloCloud does not offer DIY or Co-managed SD WAN and instead this offering is provided as a fully managed solution by VeloCloud partner service providers. This reduces risk as it capitalizes on service provider facilities, expertise and economies of scale. A fully managed service provides resiliency due to 24 hour monitoring by service providers that improves performance and reliability in application delivery, which as a result of minimal application outage will improve employee productivity.
