Cloud Connector is designed to help organizations build up their business continuity strategy. With the Cloud Connector, it is possible to move towards a Cloud-Ready Network or leverage the robustness and flexibility of an SD-WAN infrastructure.
The Cloud Connector aggregates and optimizes links from multiple providers and technologies, dynamically and without requiring any changes to either firewall or configuration, or IP addresses migration, providing a faster, more reliable access to applications and services hosted in the Cloud.
With SitePathMTPX technology, organizations can load balance VoIP/VPN traffic over multiple links, providing branch offices with a fast and uninterrupted access to those mission-critical applications.
In addition to being used as the VPN hub, the Cloud Connector can also be a gateway device to guarantee uninterrupted Cloud access. The Cloud Connector can offer unparalleled business continuity for organizations hosting critical applications on Microsoft Azure. More intelligence can be added to the configuration to provide additional quality of service and other value-added network services
When deployed with the optional geographic balancing license, the Cloud Connector can participate in a geographic balancing approach to offer the ultimate backup solution to onsite hosted services. The Cloud Connector, when paired with Link Balancers, can detect link outages and balance traffic to the best link at all times across multiple sites, it can also detect failed servers and failover traffic proactively in case of scheduled maintenance.
