VeloCloud Exceeds ONUG Testing for Software-Defined WANs

VeloCloud Networks, a cloud-delivered SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) company, has exceeded all Open Networking User Group (ONUG) SD-WAN tests. ONUG is a user-driven community of IT executives focused on open networking solutions. Its board includes IT leaders from Bank of America, Cigna, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, FedEx, Fidelity Investments, Gap Inc., JPMorgan Chase, the Lippis Report, Morgan Stanley, Pfizer, Symantec and UBS. An ONUG meeting is underway this week in New York.

VeloCloud said the extensive ONUG testing process, which lasted three months, aim to provide proof of concepts, feature validation and demonstrations to ensure that the networking solutions in the network overlays, SD-WAN and network services virtualization areas deliver on the top 10 requirements developed by the ONUG Working Groups. The testing was conducted by Ixia, in conjunction with ONUG.

“Our success in ONUG’s landmark Top Ten requirements testing for SD-WAN is an important milestone demonstrating VeloCloud’s SD-WAN solution alignment with the needs of enterprises,” said Sanjay Uppal, CEO and co-founder of VeloCloud. “As the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN leader, we are committed to working closely with ONUG and the IT community to accelerate the adoption of secure and innovative technologies that dramatically improve the economics, performance and security of enterprise applications.”

“These tests underscore our commitment to the ONUG community of IT executives and vendors to validate product features that meet IT business leader requirements for enterprise cloud infrastructure,” said Nick Lippis, chairman and co-founder of ONUG. “We are confident that this testing effort with companies such as VeloCloud will assist in moving the open infrastructure industry from technology curiosity to operations.”
