Aruba SD Branch Overview
Widespread adoption of cloud services such as Office 365 and the shifting of enterprise workloads to public clouds have changed the traffic flows from the branch. Routing Internet-bound traffic via a central hub-site is no longer a cost-effective or performance-friendly option. More and more, traffic is destined for services running on public clouds reachable directly via the Internet, rather than to an organization’s internal private data center. Consequently, IT organizations are looking at providing direct Internet access from the branch in order to enable direct user connectivity to cloud services and minimize latency.
