Cisco extends SD-WAN options with AWS, Azure hybrid-cloud integration. With these additions, Cisco aims to ensure cloud-destined traffic gets into the cloud network faster, improving management, performance, security, and reducing the latency. Cisco SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp simplifies multi-cloud connectivity while providing a secure tunnel to a regional colocation facility with a network interface.

Additionally, the Cloud onRamp for coLocation establishes secure tunnels to SaaS application platforms, multi-cloud platform services, and enterprise data centers. Cloud OnRamp optimizes cloud and on-premises application performance with real-time analytics, visibility, and control. Now, the integration of Cloud OnRamp and AWS allows customers securely link to AWS cloud resources with a few clicks.
The customers also can utilize the AWS Transit Gateway which lets customers connect their Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) and their on-premises networks to a single gateway. Meanwhile, Cisco added a Cloud OnRamp feature to help customers manage and improve application performance of Azure-based workloads.
JL Valente, Vice President of Product Management for Cisco Enterprise Networking, said,
“The new Cisco SD-WAN and Microsoft 365 integration allow customers to easily remediate sub-optimal application performance. With informed network routing, customers can improve their end user experience via monitoring and automatic intervention whenever performance is deficient relative to Office 365’s specific expectations.”
