One of the leading ways that today’s organizations are providing secure, reliable and scalable answers for their networking needs is through MPLS IP-VPN network usage. However, businesses are also looking to create Intelligent WAN that integrates security, application performance management, and cloud services in order to create more intelligent wide area networks. This paper examines how to use the attributes of MPLS-based VPNs to enable enterprises to create a truly intelligent WAN, discussing key planning, implementation and management considerations to pave the way for a more intelligent and cloud-enabled WAN.

This 11-page whitepaper discusses the agility needs of today’s business, how IT is choosing a hybrid cloud approach to meet demand, and how hybrid cloud brings more agility but also increases management complexity in an environment that encompasses traditional architectures, private clouds, and public clouds. The paper outlines the role of a cloud management platform with vRealize® Suite for enabling faster and secure provisioning with monitoring and policy-driven controls. It highlights the 3 use cases (Intelligent Ops, Automated IT to Iaas, DevOps-Ready IT), the need for Day 1 and Day 2 capabilities, and how vRealize Suite helps automate IT.
From private, public, and hybrid clouds to traditional and modern application architectures, today’s modern data center is complex. To effectively manage the evolving topology, IT needs a unified approach to management, with intelligent, cost-effective tools – which is just what an enterprise-ready cloud management platform (CMP) provides. CMP enables IT teams to automate provisioning as well as manage applications throughout their lifecycle with a single platform.

When it comes to performance, Azure SQL
Database is built for you, the developer. Azure
SQL Database is designed to make your work
easier and let you focus on other priorities.
It scales on the fly, without downtime, with
capabilities that make it great for building
multitenant software as a service (SaaS) apps.
Plus, it learns and adapts to your database
workload, whatever that may be, using built-in
intelligence to continually adjust and improve
That said, there’s more to a successful app than
impressive performance. That’s why we built
Azure SQL Database to be just as intelligent in
other areas, such as availability and security,
so that you won’t need to worry about those
essentials either. Finally, we built Azure SQL
Database to let you work the way you want,
using the tools and platforms you prefer. It’s
why we call Azure SQL Database the intelligent
database for developers. Read on to learn more,
