Why CloudGenix Was Chosen as an IDC Innovator
CloudGenix has sought to address customer challenges such as implementing a hybrid WAN, improving cloud-based application performance, creating a dynamic security perimeter, and rolling out an SDN for operational efficiencies and cost savings. To that end, it has developed an SD-WAN offering that eliminates the need for complex routers and routing protocols, instead featuring an application-defined fabric that allows policies to control and govern application delivery across a hybrid WAN.
IDC Innovator Assessment
- CloudGenix has predicated its Instant-On Network (ION) SD-WAN solution on facilitating, managing, and delivering application sessions across a hybrid WAN rather than on managing routers and routing protocols.
- The CloudGenix ION architecture comprises — from the top down — an application layer, the ION Fabric, and the physical network. The application layer is where the administrator defines application- specific policies on the CloudGenix controller, assigning business priority, security rules, and permissible paths. The ION Fabric functions as an overlay and provides secure connectivity between price performance, increased WAN throughput, faster provisioning of branches and applications, simpler WAN management, and greater operational efficiencies.
