The VeloCloud provides an enhanced Quality of Service feature called Business Policy. This feature is defined using the Business Policy tab in a Profile (or at the Edge override level).

Note: If you are logged in using a user ID that has Customer Support privileges, you will only be able to view VeloCloud Orchestrator objects. You will not be able to create new objects or configure/update existing ones.

Based on the business policy configuration, the VeloCloud examines the traffic being used, identifies the Application behavior, the business service objective required for a given app (High, Med, or Low), and the Edge WAN Link conditions. Based on this, the Business Policy optimizes Application behavior driving queuing, bandwidth utilization, link steering, and the mitigation of network errors.

The screen capture below shows some of the Business Policy rules. A number of rules are predefined and you can add your own rules to customize your network operation. Rules are listed in order of highest precedence. Network traffic is managed by identifying its characteristics then matching the characteristics to the rule with the highest precedence.

As shown in the image below, Business Policy Rules are now Segment aware. All Segments available for configuration are listed in the Configure Segment drop-down menu.

When you choose a Segment to configure from the Configure Segment drop-down menu, the settings and options associated with that Segment appear in the Configure Segments area. Global Segment [Regular] is the default segment.

For more information about Segmentation, see Configure Segments and Configure a Profile Device.


Note: You can move your configured rules up or down in the list of rules to establish precedence by hovering over the numeric value at the left side of the rule and moving the rule up or down.  If you hover over the right side of a rule, click the  – (minus) sign next to the rule to remove it from the list or the + (plus) sign to add a new rule.
