Alkira Cloud Area Networking is the industry’s first solution for the enterprise networking and security needs in the cloud era. In partnership with Aruba, Alkira Cloud Area Networking now offers deployment of Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN as an on-ramp to the Alkira multi-cloud network. Organizations benefit from automated deployment of Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN virtual appliances into the Alkira Cloud Area Networking, enabling instant multi-cloud networking with integrated advanced security capabilities and global network backbone transit. The combined Alkira and Aruba solution removes the need for per-cloud SD-WAN on-ramp and eliminates the complexity of traditional cloud networking and security.
Simplified instantiation, visibility and monitoring for the Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN virtual instances.
Enterprise-grade cross-segment routing and security controls for shared cloud application services.
End-to-end segmentation between SD-WAN sites and cloud workloads with advanced security and policy enforcement for cloud application traffic.
Save cost and provisioning time on long-haul private circuits by interconnecting regionalized Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN fabrics over the Alkira’s high speed low latency global cloud backbone.
Seamless Mergers and Acquisitions
Seamlessly interconnect multi-vendor SD-WAN fabrics to support mergers and acquisitions during the migration to an enterprise-wide Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution.
Alkira offers Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN customers a unified, multi-cloud on-ramp, seamlessly integrated into the global Alkira routed network fabric. The joint solution provides the following elements:
How it works?
- Logon to the Alkira Cloud Area Networking portal
- Map to Alkira segments and groups to integrate with the global Alkira network policy
- Select Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN from the list of available on-premises connectors in the Alkira design canvas
Once instantiated, Aruba Orchestrator accepts the new virtual appliances, applies the necessary SD-WAN configuration, and manages them as any other Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN appliance.
