Spreading like a wildfire during the dry season, the presence of software-defined networking deployments is on the rise. Stealing the spotlight in our cloud era is SD-WAN, as the benefits are undeniable. Initial reticence is giving way to a full on cloud revolution. It’s not your father’s WAN anymore.

Today, Datavision announced a new partnership with SD-WAN Expo Platinum Sponsor Silver Peak, which brings the Silver Peak portfolio to Datavision’s offerings. Distributed IT is growing, and legacy WAN deployments are simply not up to the task of supporting today’s SaaSy, digital age.

“We are excited to feature the Silver Peak (News - Alert) SD-WAN solution across the Datavision portfolio of SDN-based solutions,” adds Mark Abolafia, COO of Datavision. “This is an exciting year for Datavision, so be sure to stay tuned for regular updates on the development of our managed SD-WAN offering.”

Specifically, Datavision gains the ability to offer its sales channel Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN, and provide implementation and engineering services. The synergy in this pairing is strong, as Datavision expertise is consulting in SDN-powered end-to-end networking, and Silver Peak’s SD-WAN is no slouch.

“We welcome Datavision to our family of channel partners and we’re excited about the network engineering, software development and the overall SDN qualifications and experience they bring to our mutual customers,” commented Derek Dal Ponte, VP Channels for Silver Peak. “Datavision’s deep expertise and hands-on support will assure customers get the most out of their SD-WAN solution deployments.”

SD-WAN is surging, with no true finish line in sight. This burgeoning market is only on the ground floor of a Manhattan high-rise, which is why providers, resellers and integrators are positioning for long term prosperity in a market ripe with opportunity.

What’s in your WAN?
