Aruba has announced Aruba SD-WAN support and integration with Amazon Web Services’s (AWS) AWS Cloud WAN. This new solution will enable Aruba customers to use the policy-based framework of AWS Cloud WAN to create advanced WAN topologies with integrated network segmentation.
Organisations can now extend policy-based network segmentation from the branch edge – which spans the campus, branch, microbranch, and remote worker solutions – into the AWS global network. Aruba SD-WAN integration with AWS Cloud WAN is enabled through Aruba Orchestrator and Aruba Central, making it easy to deploy, manage, and operate sophisticated WAN networks over AWS. Aruba Orchestrator now also supports automated “one-click” deployment of EdgeConnect SD-WAN instances directly into AWS VPC’s. This new automation capability is seamlessly integrated with EdgeConnect’s zero-touch provisioning workflow, and further simplifies the deployment and commissioning process for solutions using Cloud WAN.
“This latest integration with AWS Cloud WAN changes the game for enterprises looking to maximize flexibility and reduce operational complexity while strengthening security posture within their cloud-centric WAN deployments,” said David Hughes, chief product and technology officer at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. “Integrations like these play an important role within Aruba ESP by enabling edge-to-cloud security for organizations as they adopt a Zero Trust SASE approach, while maximizing choice and flexibility as they implement their cloud strategy.”
