Nokia's Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 has been implemented by OmniClouds, a leading cloud service provider and migrator. The deal will help boost enterprises in the region, as they are currently held back by a shortage of native cloud service providers.
Paired with Nuage Networks' SD-WAN 2.0 solution, OmniClouds customers will have a secure and scalable way to connect with data centers, private clouds, software-as-a-solution (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-solution (IaaS) providers. For the region, this is a huge shift because in many areas, enterprise customers are currently unable to connect to their cloud environments, data centers and remote locations in this way.
OmniClouds will not only provide full cloud connectivity but will also use SD-WAN 2.0 as an overlay to existing connectivity technologies such as IP-MPLS, microwave, satellite or public internet, to automate operations and enhance connectivity over large geographic regions. Furthermore, OmniClouds will take advantage of SD-WAN 2.0 gateways at each of the region's main cloud service providers, which connect with SD-WAN CPE gateways at the enterprises' data centers, headquarters and branch operations. This dramatically reduces customer operating costs, smooths their adoption of cloud services and enables widespread connectivity across distant locations.
Amr A Eid, chief executive officer and board member of OmniClouds said, “We are the trusted partner of enterprise customers in the Middle East and Africa region when they need help in migrating to the cloud. The Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution plays a critical part in smoothing their move to the cloud by simplifying the operational side and providing the security and assurance they need for such a critical part of their business.”
