Azure Virtual WAN

Azure Virtual WAN is a diverse connectivity service that brings together networking, connectivity, security, monitoring, and routing features. It provides a centralized console for the management of our network backbone. Earlier our network connectivity options were limited and disoriented but after implementing Azure Virtual WAN, we were able to build a Global network backbone with managed points of presence all across the globe.

CenturyLink SD-WAN Solutions

Although it is one of the most highly trusted and highly reliable high-speed internet connections, there are times when CenturyLink SD-WAN Solutions had unexpected outages which ran longer than normal causing service degradation. That should be looked at.

Azure Virtual WAN

As we were already using Azure as a cloud platform, it was easy setting up a Virtual WAN inside Azure as users/developers and DevOps engineers were familiar with the user interface and functioning as compared to going to some other portal for just the VWAN solution. The umbrella of features provided by Azure Virtual WAN made it the right choice for our infrastructure.

CenturyLink SD-WAN Solutions

It was my company's decision though on selecting to use Century Link SD-WAN Solutions. However it was very faster in the European region when compared to other products.
