Global Capacity Picks VeloCloud for SD-WAN

Global Capacity will offer managed SD-WAN services thanks to a new partnership with VeloCloud.

Global Capacity says the services will improve the network experience by helping to manage complex hybrid WAN architectures. Load-sharing traffic, different types of network configurations and low application visibility comprise the problems that need to be addressed. Businesses will use Global Capacity’s solution to route data across their wide area networks matching performance needs with the appropriate access types. The solution prioritizes traffic, “enabling enterprises to make better use of bandwidth to enhance performance and overall user experience.”

VeloCloud CEO Sanjay Uppal said his company adds multi-tenant SD-WAN architecture to Global Capacity.

“The Global Capacity One Marketplace platform is purpose-built to deliver simple, cost-effective and high-performance hybrid networks that connect enterprises to key cloud destinations,” Uppal said. “Global Capacity’s use of VeloCloud to further expand their provider neutral model of managing any combination of their services or their competitors is truly innovative.”

As such, the need to manage multiple suppliers with diverse technologies across various cities, enabling a robust hybrid network experience, is necessary.
