Job Description

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance. Software-Defined WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network. Our technology enables you to support application growth, network agility and simplified branch implementations while delivering secure optimized access to cloud datacenters and applications.

SD-WAN is evolving from simplified cloud management, assured performance WAN Infrastructure to a Client to Cloud to Container story with intrinsic security. It is no longer an "edge-to-edge technology". It is expanding to go deeper into the branch or home or frankly anywhere; from individual clients, to the cloud, and all the way to the application container, wherever it sits, in the public or private cloud.

For the third year in a row, VeloCloud by VMware has been named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure! Amongst multiple vendors, VMware emerged again as a Leader, positioned furthest in Completeness of Vision and highest in Ability to Execute. Learn Fast, Trust each other, Have Fun. That embodies the culture of VeloCloud by VMware - a market leader in the SD-WAN space. See our blog here.
