A magnificent piece of music performed live by a symphony of talented musicians can be an unforgettable experience. But, can you imagine sitting in the theater, watching the musicians with much anticipation – but the conductor is a no-show?
With no conductor, an amazing experience could become a discordant disaster. Without direction, the instruments would be out of sorts. The conductor brings life to the work, orchestrating and aligning the composition with the composer’s intentions.
SD-WAN orchestration has similar attributes of a music conductor, aligning business policies with applications and network control, providing visualization, and network services insertion, all from a single console. The orchestrator automatically configures edge devices, and updates routing information, based on business intent. With guidance like that of an accomplished conductor’s baton, the control and management of traffic flow, and monitoring of business processes are all conducted through the orchestrator.
Orchestrating Business Intentions
Musical scores are created with instructions that include pitch, timbre, volume, and duration. Orchestrating these elements is necessary to accurately translate the composer’s intent.
This is also the case for organizations that don’t have central orchestration to manage their distributed networks. Just as there are instructions for a musical piece, SD-WAN uses automated policies that provide instructions for networks to align with applications and business requirements. Central orchestration enables enterprises to align their business needs with their networks.
A business that is expanding, needs to quickly integrate newly acquired companies into their enterprise network. The difference between being able to integrate network infrastructure in weeks, rather than months, can have a huge impact on a business. And when companies move business applications from the corporate data center to a SaaS provider, their users need uninterrupted and reliable access to applications, like Office 365 and unified communications.
