How to solve the data problem with a new network architecture

Some enterprises have closed down their data centers, but it doesn’t seem likely that another 7 out of 10 enterprise data centers will go offline in just five years.

Hybrid cloud usage is on the rise, and in some cases, applications are being moved back to a private cloud (although it may be in a multi-tenant data center instead of the enterprise data center) for cost or regulatory reasons.

In this brief, learn why a new paradigm is needed to extend the WAN beyond the data center to the multi- and hybrid cloud environment in which the modern enterprise operates.
