Dell EMC SD-WAN Solution Powered by VMware: Offering Even More Modernization

Dell Technologies continues to innovate and deliver new solutions for customers as we fully accelerate to meet the Cloud era. With new partnerships with Google Cloud and new Dell Technologies Cloud Platform capabilities, Dell Technologies is helping to unify the application experience across products and technologies. That Cloud-based innovation extends to the Edge with SD-WAN.

Dell EMC SD-WAN Solution powered by VMware delivers a set of software-defined tools that can boost application performance and maintain quality of service for mission-critical applications like voice, video conferencing, and VDI. With Cloud-based centralized management, a Cloud network of virtualized gateways, and zero touch deployments, SD-WAN Solution delivers turnkey networking modernization and gives the WAN a much needed boost for supporting today’s Cloud applications. And with many businesses seeing traditional branch workloads now move into home offices for their critical workers, SD-WAN provides quality of service to keep business applications in service while sharing bandwidth with video streaming, social media, and other home traffic.

SD-WAN Solution powered by VMware modernizes networking with:

  • Simplicity & Agility – Appliances and software combined in an all-in-one solution, saving you time and money and enabling the rapid deployment of SD-WAN
  • Performance & Efficiency – Boost application performance with software-defined features and Cloud-based management, and gain efficiency to reduce WAN costs up 75%*
  • Scale & Trust – Back your transformation at scale with enterprise-class support, services, and global supply chain from a single vendor- Dell Technologies

We’re pleased to announce that SD-WAN Solution has expanded to offer even more choice and flexibility for turnkey WAN modernization. Take a look at our recent updates:

Expanding the Edge

New Dell EMC Edge 620, 640, and 680 models join the successful Edge 600 appliance portfolio, adding even more configuration and bandwidth options for modernization. These appliances feature Intel processors, fast DDR memory, onboard flash storage, and are built specifically for virtualized networking workloads. And like all Dell EMC SD-WAN Solution appliances, they are factory-integrated with VMware Velocloud software, delivering a turnkey solution for transforming networking with SD-WAN. A closer look at the new appliances:

  • Dell EMC Edge 620 – up to 500mbps of performance, for a single virtualized networking function and typical bandwidth usage
  • Dell EMC Edge 640 – up to 1gps of performance with extra bandwidth capacity for demanding applications and resources
  • Dell EMC Edge 680 – up to 2gps of performance, for multiple virtualized networking workloads and high bandwidth utilization

The expanded Edge portfolio brings even more throughput and performance to branch locations, all delivered in a sleek and compact form factor. End users simply plug the appliances in and IT handles the rest remotely via Cloud-based Centralized Management. No serial number tracking, no on-site visits, no sensitive network information pre-loaded on devices- a true game change!

More Software-Defined Innovations

VMware has expanded the software-defined features and capabilities of the Velocloud SD-WAN software.

The latest release, 3.4.1, introduces the following:

  • Support for Private Segments
  • Syslog Firewall Logging Enhancement
  • MPLS CoS Enhancement

This new update expands upon the impressive list of features introduced in update 3.4, including:

  • Conditional Backhaul
  • Stateful Firewall
  • Configure DSL Options
  • Edge Clustering
  • Wi-Fi Improvements
  • Enterprise Reporting

VMware continues to push forward with SD-WAN, delivering an unmatched set of virtualized functionality to an already impressive set of software-defined innovations. It’s no wonder they’ve been named a leader by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for Edge Infrastructure two years in a row.**

The Dell Technologies Advantage

With the full backing of Dell’s global supply chain, ProSupport, and PreDeploy services options, SD-WAN Solution makes the adoption and deployment of SD-WAN easy and low risk, no matter how complex the network or location. Select the Edge appliance that best fits your need – from the newly expanded 600 series to 3000 series options for data center and HQ locations – and ship directly to the site.

Network Engineers can then access the remote hardware via Centralized Management, and perform all network configuration tasks from there. No flights, no trips, no tracking of serial numbers or the risk of pre-loading devices with sensitive networking information. Deploying Dell EMC SD-WAN Solution powered by VMware is simple, fast, and low risk.

Purpose-built appliances from Dell Technologies and leading software from VMware combined in one innovative solution- a truly better together story to power modernization and accelerate networks to meet the challenges of the Cloud era.
