Cloud networking enables the decentralization of network resources and capabilities. This form of information technology (IT) infrastructure enables businesses of all sizes to access network resources and services that are hosted in the cloud, whether private, public or hybrid, on a pay-per-use basis.
Cloud networking eliminates the need to purchase physical hardware and software resources and services. Resources and services that can be hosted in the cloud include virtual routers, virtual firewalls, bandwidth and network management software. An organization can either utilize a cloud-enabled or cloud-based network.
A cloud-enabled network is on-premises but the resources and services used to manage it are in the cloud. A cloud-based network on the other hand is entirely in the cloud. Cloud networks are quickly becoming the new enterprise core.
Cloud networking simplifies and automates functions, significantly reduces costs, increases uptime and improves service. In this guide, we will explore all you need to know about Extreme Networks and Amazon Elastic Compute.
Extreme Networks Overview
Extreme Networks' cloud-driven networking solution, ExtremeCloud IQ, is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The solution offers secure, streamlined fourth-generation, cloud-driven network management, IT and business (actionable) insights powered by ML, access control, deployment flexibility, speed, overall security and savings.
