This section describes VeloCloud solution components.
A thin “Edge” that is zero IT touch provisioned from the cloud for secured, optimized connectivity to your apps and virtualized services. The VeloCloud Edges are zero-touch, enterprise-class devices or virtual software that provide secure and optimized connectivity to private, public and hybrid applications; compute; and virtualized services. VeloCloud Edges perform deep application recognition, application and per-packet steering, on-demand remediation performance metrics and end-to-end quality of service (QoS) in addition to hosting Virtual Network Function (VNF) services. An Edge pair can be deployed to provide High Availability (HA). Edges can be deployed in branches, large sites and data centers. All other network infrastructure is provided on-demand in the cloud.
The VeloCloud Orchestrator provides centralized enterprise-wide configuration and real-time monitoring, as well as orchestrates the data flow into and through the SDWAN overlay network. Additionally, it provides the one-click provisioning of virtual services across Edges, in centralized and regional enterprise service hubs and in the cloud.
VeloCloud’s network consists of gateways deployed at top tier network points-of-presence and cloud data centers around the world, providing SDWAN services to the doorstep of SaaS, IaaS and cloud network services, as well as access to private backbones. Multi-tenant, virtual Gateways are deployed both by VeloCloud transit and cloud service provider partners. The gateways provide the advantage of an on-demand, scalable and redundant cloud network for optimized paths to cloud destinations as well as zero-installation applications.
