Cloud WAN architecture: Enterprises rethink networks for the cloud era

Public cloud services have upended the traditional approach to wide area networking, and engineers need to respond.

Enterprises have been pouring cash into cloud services, particularly Software as a Service (SaaS), but they have failed to invest in the changes to network architecture required to deliver acceptable performance and user experience, according to Andre Kindness, senior ***yst with Cambridge, Mass.-based Forrester Research Inc. A new cloud WAN architecture is needed.

While enterprises have embraced public cloud services, they have made network upgrades a low priority, according to a Forrester study sponsored by Juniper Networks and XO Communications. The study, which surveyed 154 enterprises, found that network upgrades and refreshes were ranked sixth for IT organizations over the last three years, with only 47% of respondents saying they had made such investments. This lack of network spending coincides with a wave of cloud adoption that demands a new approach to networking, Kindness said.
