Citrix SD-WAN Standard Edition for Azure logically bonds multiple network links into a single secure logical virtual path. The solution enables organisations to leverage variety of connections from different service providers including Broadband, MPLS, 4G/LTE, Satellite and point to point links to get high resiliency virtual WAN paths. These virtual paths seamlessly aggregate bandwidth capacities across multiple links and deliver consistent user experience even if some of the member links go down or suffer degradation. This is enabled by the per-packet load balancing and monitoring capabilities of SD-WAN. SD-WAN for Azure enables organisations to have a direct high quality secure connection from each branch to the applications hosted in Azure eliminating the need to backhaul cloud bound traffic through a data center. Some of the benefits of using SD-WAN in Azure are:
• Create direct connections from every location to Azure.
• Ensure an always on connection to Azure.
• Extend your secure perimeter to the cloud.
• Evolve to a simple, easy to manage branch network.
