Networked Cloud Emerges to Meet Evolving Enterprise Needs
Cloud-based networking technologies are emerging to help solve a number of enterprise problems, and organizations are busy exploring what "the networked cloud" will mean for them.
While some network pros are dipping cautious toes into the cloud-based networking waters with individual, subscription-based services, others are migrating their applications to the cloud with a high degree of visibility and control.
This edition of Network Evolution examines how cloud-based networking can make network managers' lives easier in a new era of IT.
Also in this issue, we explore:

- Whether satellite connectivity is realistic for WANs
- Microsoft's upcoming Azure Stack release -- and whether it could become a major player in the SDN space
