Oracle SD-WAN (Talari)

Although things like high speed are not available in Talari (I think none of the SDWAN providers offer this), Talari devices provide good security and are easy to manage

Riverbed Steelhead is very stable and integrates into applications easily, especially Microsoft and Azure or AWS.If there is a new Windows version available, the Riverbed version is not far away. The remote locations can work like they are located near the data center. For this reason, you can reduce your global data centers to a minimum. Some customers have just one!

Pros

Oracle SD-WAN (Talari)

  • Failsafe- ability to aggregate low cost link and increase enterprise WAN bandwidth and also provide safe failor over in case of link interruption, with almost zero drops. In a lab test for voice it works perfectly for voice.
  • Config Change without system interruption (change config and apply it during Maintenance windows).

Cons

Oracle SD-WAN (Talari)

  • Ability to completely replace Core Router Functions - Especially in dynamic routing (add more routing protocols like EIGRP and also expand routing features like a prefix link, route map, and add more power routing capability to be able handle lar routing table).
  • High Port Speed. Device to be able to support 10G, 40G or even 100G port speed on both ways of communication.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle SD-WAN (Talari)

I would say they are pretty close in service delivery and the way they manage link performance. The only thing I would say Citrix is more expensive, but I like Citrix support better ( experience with Citrix LB). We have been using Meraki for a while. It delivers what we expected [and is] very easy to set up. We used Z1 for removing a VPN, which at glance is still an SD WAN. Very stable [and] the only problem I'm facing is the ability to design it better due to lack of documentation in my view.
