Our customers are asking us to deliver Intelligent WAN routing architectures and advanced features at an increased pace. Glue Networks is helping Forsythe, a $1B+ technology integrator, deliver on these requests with their Gluware 2.0 platform. Gluware enables us to evolve our services business by delivering SD WAN as a service, and to deliver advanced capabilities to our customers with speed and agility, all while reducing our costs.
- Nick Lippis,Co-Chairman and Co-Founder of the Open Networking User Group (ONUG)
User pain is the greatest in the WAN because IT business leaders face the challenge of maintaining and evolving the network while time to market and demand for network services continue to increase. Glue Networks has worked closely with ONUG IT business leaders to address all SD-WAN testing requirements. Jeff and the Glue team understand the importance of simplifying network design and operations via enabling zero-touch provisioning; Gluware 2.0 delivers on these key user requirements.
- Cliff Grossner, Ph.D.,Research Director, Data Center, Cloud and SDN , IHS
The rapid evolution of new business applications, the increased adoption of off-premises cloud services and rapid policy churn are all converging to demand that networks become automated. Software-defined networking (SDN) introduces automation to networks via programmability bringing IT methodologies to network operations. Glue Networks’ Orchestration Engine is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between IT and existing network engineering methodologies using CLIs, an important requirement for enabling SDN deployments.
- Brad Casemore,Research Director, Data Center Networks, IDC
SDN began in the datacenter, where it addressed the new networking requirements that were spawned by the rise of server virtualization and cloud. As enterprises adopt cloud services across ever-greater areas of their business, public-cloud application delivery and performance becomes a requirement and the need for SDN extends to the WAN. Glue Networks recognizes that SD-WAN has the potential to leverage cost-effective broadband transport for both new and non-business critical workloads and cloud services, helping business customers leverage the cloud while reducing their MPLS costs.
