Are you ready for the Cloud?

Reporter: Allan Roach Advertorial

Over ninety-two percent of midsize businesses use at least one cloud-based application. And the majority of enterprises expect at least half of their management infrastructure to be cloud-based. Cloud-managed networking, often provided “as-a-service,” is rapidly growing in popularity.

What is cloud-managed networking?

Cloud-managed networking is commonly used when referring to the ability to manage Wi-Fi, wired and SD-WAN network infrastructure as a cloud-based service. This service is typically hosted in the cloud by a 3rd party as a subscription-based purchase model.

An immediate benefit is the cost and time savings achieved by eliminating the need for hardware and the resources needed to host traditional on-premises services. And because there’s virtually no ramp-up time, cloud-based solutions provide significant time-to-market and time-to-value that help businesses achieve a competitive advantage. These same benefits apply to managing a network infrastructure. Cloud-managed networking, which refers to the ability to manage network hardware and software using the SaaS model, is also increasing in popularity. In fact, Gartner research states that the adoption of cloud-managed networking is expected to double by the end of 2023.

Here, we highlight the key benefits of cloud-managed networking:

  •  Centralized Visibility & Control – a single location for Wi-Fi, wired, and WAN networks, devices and clients
  •  24/7 Anywhere Access – perform management, monitoring and control from any device at any time
  •  Stable & Secure Platform – avoid legacy maintenance and redundant configurations to ensure uptime
  •  Significant Resource Savings – over deploying and managing appliance based on-premises solutions
