The Enterprise IT landscape has undergone an evolution in the way applications, data centers and storage are delivered.

Nearly every Enterprise now makes use of SaaS (software as a service), PaaS (platform as a service), Cloud Compute and Cloud Storage in one way or another.

The feature depth, quality, security and reliability of these cloud services have improved dramatically over the last decade. As these services shift to the cloud they place a strain on the traditional networks used to connect them to people, devices and branches. The solution is to leverage the cloud as the network.

In this whitepaper Lee Doyle discusses why the cloud is the network and how Enterprises are leveraging this to produce flexible networks which adapt, improve, and secure access and performance to traditional and cloud services.
