A global enterprise WAN is constructed using a combination of many services (e.g. carrier MPLS, Internet IPsec/GRE tunnels, private lines, etc) and bolt-on services (e.g. WAN acceleration, load balancers, proxy servers, etc.). One thing we know for certain, just like many legacy compute workloads, cloud cannot is not about to cause these existing WAN solutions to disappear tomorrow and the enterprise is committed to living in a hybrid world for the foreseeable future.

This presentation will take an applied approach to discussing the many manners in which to integrate with and extend our existing WAN into the cloud, and the eventual transformation of the enterprise WAN just like cloud computing is already doing for our compute workloads.
