Alkira Unveils Fastest Cloud Access through Cloud Area Networking

Alkira | June 22, 2022

Alkira introduced Cloud Area Networking, a cutting-edge network that quickly connects networking teams to the cloud. A complete stack, edge-to-cloud enterprise-grade network with integrated routing and network services makes up the ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind solution. It is the only network entirely developed in the cloud and provided as a service, requiring neither the purchase of hardware nor the setup of agents. Slow cloud installations are a problem for even the most savvy businesses. The inefficiency results from juggling many networking silos with various tools and capabilities. The key to success is unification, which requires complex manual settings and specialist cloud expertise. Warner Music Group, Koch Industries, Tekion, and other companies have already benefited from solutions from Alkira Cloud Area Networking. Network engineers and architects can now set up unified global networks and cloud on-ramps using only a browser and a mouse. Work that once took months to perform is now completed in hours. The whole development, management, and use of the network is automated using Alkira Cloud Area Networking. No hardware or software has to be installed. Cloud Area of Alkira Cloud and multi-cloud deployments are significantly accelerated by networking. By combining all users, sites, clouds, and vendors into a single network, it achieves this. Total end-to-end visibility, compliance, security, and more are the outcomes. With one-off, unmaintainable network deployments, organizations may cease adding to their technological debt. Alkira Cloud Area Networking is designed to be repeatable in the future. Blueprinted. Automated. For optimum operational agility, it seamlessly connects with the CI/CD pipeline. Delivering a single policy posture across the whole on-premises and cloud network is made simpler as a result. “Organizations looking to transform their networks are often surprised by the vast magnitude and intricacies of the undertaking. The complexity of existing networking and security architecture, lack of uniform policies across on-prem and public cloud, and limited network visibility all combine to create lengthy, error-prone implementations that are difficult to monitor. Cloud Area Networking technologies that automate all that tedious plumbing can be a compelling solution for organizations that want to quickly embrace the speed and agility of the cloud,” said Shamus McGillicuddy, Vice President of Research, Network Management, at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “Until now, enterprises had a choice between shoe-horning last-generation technology into the cloud or using orchestration tools to hide the complexity. Enterprises are reaching the limit on how much they can patch their increasingly fragmented network. The Alkira way, the Cloud Area Networking way, is a single, enterprise-grade network infrastructure built for the cloud but grounded in reality,” Amir Khan, Chief Executive Officer of Alkira
