Cisco Meraki :
First of all Meraki started with a project called Roofnet designed to bring wireless to the city of Cambridge. The company grew tremendously at a rate of 2-3x per year and was acquired by Cisco in 2012. Meraki became part of Cisco’s Cloud Networking Group (CNG) and has kept its secret sauce and passion for cloud managed networking.
Cisco Meraki changed the way we think about network management today. Its out-of-band cloud architecture creates secure, scalable and easy-to-deploy networks that can be managed from anywhere. This can be done from almost any device using web-based Meraki Dashboard and Meraki Mobile App.
VMware Velocloud :
VeloCloud’s cloud-delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to securely support application growth, network agility, and simplified branch and end-point implementations while delivering high-performance, reliable access to cloud services, private data centers and SaaS-based enterprise applications. With VeloCloud cloud-delivered SD-WAN, service providers can increase revenue and service innovation by delivering elastic transport, performance for cloud applications and a software-defined edge that can orchestrate multiple services to meet customer needs.
By acquiring VeloCloud, VMware will build on the success of the industry’s leading network virtualization platform – VMware NSX – and expand the company’s networking portfolio to address end-to-end automation, application continuity, branch transformation and security from the data center to cloud edge. This acquisition will further strengthen VMware’s position in leading the market transition to a software-defined future, and will enable enterprises to bring their businesses into the digital era with networking that is ubiquitous, open, programmable and secure by default.
A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that provides enterprises with the flexibility to leverage any combination of transport services, including broadband internet, to securely connect users to applications.
