Simple AWS Networking with Application Defined SD-WAN

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud is a proven route to help organizations achieve rapid scalability, reduced time-to-market, and cost-effectiveness in their IT infrastructure. These benefits are delivered, in part, by automation, greater ease-of-use, and simplified management.

Many are challenged, however, with legacy network infrastructure and management solutions, as the complexity of managing dynamic workloads, as well as inconsistency in performance and security, can impair many of the benefits AWS provides. SD-WAN helps organizations overcome this challenge by providing automation and simplified management for cloud networking. This whitepaper looks at how Riverbed SD-WAN can help organizations improve performance, agility, and security in their cloud-centric network.

Digital Businesses Need to Rethink Their Network Strategies ZK Research White Paper

The network plays a fundamental role in enabling the shift to digital. But it simply cannot fulfill this function while it is hardware-bound and hard-coded.

The network must become cloudlike to enable delivery of dynamic, rich digital services quickly and easily. This means shifting away from old approaches that require configuration of individual boxes to an approach that is software-defined, based on policy and orchestration. It’s time for SD-WAN.

Read this ZK Research white paper to:

  • Understand the challenge with traditional networks
  • Chart a path to SD-WAN
  • Learn what to look for in SD-WAN vendors

Windows 10: The Big New Opportunity for Developers

Windows 10 is not just another release. Microsoft is introducing a concept it calls “Windows as a service,” which means that the operating system will be continuously updated, though with options for businesses to move at a slow pace in order to retain stability.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s second attempt at moving its core operating system into the mobile era. Windows 8, released in late 2012, was a bold re-imagining of Windows that divided the system into two personalities, one that was a new touch-friendly environment originally called Metro, and the other the traditional desktop. Metro is powered by a runtime layer called the Windows Runtime (WinRT), for which apps are written using the .NET languages (C# or Visual Basic), HTML and JavaScript, or C++.
