What is it?
- API integration to manage Azure Virtual WAN environment from Nuage SD-WAN console
- Secure one click connect from branch to Azure Virtual WAN
- Simplify reachability for secure application access
Azure Virtual WAN is a networking service that provides optimized and automated branch connectivity to, and through, Azure. This service provides optimized fast path routing between onpremises, virtual appliances and Azure hosted workloads with secure connectivity using automated IPsec tunnels. Nuage Networks has collaborated with Microsoft to integrate Nuage SD-WAN with Microsoft’s Azure Virtual WAN to offer customers that have business resources in Azure to gain simple and automated connectivity to the branch. This solution will extend customers’ current ability to connect workloads running in Azure using Nuage SD-WAN and enable customers to deliver connectivity and intrinsic security from branch locations to Azure. This partnership, using SD-WAN and on-premises CPE from Nuage Networks, enables secure branch to Azure connectivity and the application traffic flowing across Microsoft powered WAN.
The users at the branch today can directly access cloud applications without the need to backhaul to the headquarters due to the advent of SD-WAN. Enterprises also use Microsoft Azure and Microsoft SaaS applications such as Office 365. To access these applications the connectivity between the branch and Azure cloud via Azure Virtual WAN needs to be secure and simplified. The configurations that need to take place at the branch as well as Azure Virtual WAN need to be automated, error-free and painless.
This integration solution solves these pain-points in an automated way. The following recommended configuration steps are automated:
This is done via API integration to manage Azure WAN environment from Nuage SD-WAN console. User at the branch only needs one click to connect the branch to Azure Virtual WAN. The one-click easy-connect feature provides simplified reachability for secure application access.
