VeloCloud Review

Today’s enterprises collaborate online. They consume more wide area network (WAN) bandwidth, increase the use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud services, access large rich-media files, and leverage other bandwidth-intensive applications (e.g. video meetings, data sharing, Office 365, and SalesForce).

Corporate IT is facing numerous technical hurdles addressing these demands due to the complexity, cost and legacy architecture inherent in their existing WAN. The majority of branch offices today still rely on expensive dedicated network lines such as private MPLS circuits or unpredictable internet (DSL, Cable, LTE) – all which are not ideal on their own.

VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to support application growth, network agility and simplified branch implementations while delivering optimized access to cloud services, private data centers and enterprise applications simultaneously over both ordinary broadband Internet and private links.

VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN combines the economics and flexibility of a hybrid WAN with the deployment speed and low maintenance of a cloud-based service. It includes policy-based network-wide application performance, visibility and control while dramatically simplifying the WAN by delivering virtualized services from the cloud to branch offices.

The VeloCloud Gateways system is deployed globally at top-tier cloud data centers to provide scalable and on-demand cloud network services. VeloCloud Gateways implement VeloCloud DMPO, cloud VPN and VeloCloud Multisource Inbound Quality of Service between global cloud services (SaaS, IaaS, network services) and each VeloCloud Edge, enabling multiple broadband and private leased lines to appear as a single, high-performance WAN.

The cloud-based VeloCloud Orchestrator is used to provision network-wide business policy, enable services insertion, perform real-time monitoring and analyze application performance.

Solution Pros:

  • Zero-touch deployment – activation, configuration, and management are all handled in the cloud
  • Simple policy settings across many sites through a centralized cloud-based Orchestrator
  • Quality of Experience (QoE) assures application performance and delivers high quality and capacity WAN

Top Features Include:

  • On-demand remediation includes error correction, jitter buffering and re-transmits
  • Continuous proactive monitoring
  • Dynamic Multipath Optimization aggregates broadband and MPLS to achieve optimal performance


The WAN is in transition as enterprises seek to improve agility and economics, and adapt to the shift of applications to the cloud. VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN offers enterprise-grade performance, security, visibility, and control over both public Internet and private networks. VeloCloud dramatically simplifies the WAN with zero-touch deployment, one-click business policy and services insertion, and cloud-based network as a service.

VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN brings SDN concepts to the enterprise branch WAN. Business policies implemented across the logical overlay deliver abstraction of application flows from the underlying physical transport. Agility is achieved based on adjusting forwarding, to meet policy as well as real-time link conditions.
