In 2019, the SD-WAN 2.0 Working Group is looking beyond issues related to building out software-defined wide-area network overlays to the set of challenges associated with integrating SD-WAN connectivity into hybrid multi-cloud environments.
The working group is defining use case requirements for reference solutions involving typical deployment scenarios, which include connecting to multiple cloud providers, ensuring application performance, scaling, enforcing security policies, integrating on-premise security with cloud-based security and orchestrating connectivity that spans multiple domains.
The SD-WAN 2.0 Working Group has developed a reference architecture for enterprise SD-WAN multi-cloud integration, which it is using to specify the requirement for use cases such as:
Branch office direct access to SaaS and IaaS
Multi-cloud attachment to the SD-WAN fabric
Security for branch offices and the cloud
Integrated cloud APIs via SDWAN controllers
SDWAN client for end users
SD-WAN 2.0 Reference Architecture
This reference architecture provides a common framework for specifying the functional requirements for each use case scenario, which will be documented in a set of “RFPs” that will guide the development of multi-vendor reference solutions.
IT executives, amplify your voice by aggregating your user case requirements with peers so that vendors, standards and open source communities build industry solutions needed. You’ll also share best practices and challenges for IT organizational re-design, culture and skills needed to deliver the digital transformation effect.
