The cloud has revolutionized the relationship between data and applications, moving away from the traditional model where an application resides alongside the data it utilizes. This shift is particularly challenging for Software as a Service (SaaS) providers, as they often operate outside of customers’ data centers, making it more complex to establish connectivity with the required edge data.
In these edge data sources, inconsistent network environments, distributed geographic locations and even varying levels of talent onsite have prevented standardization of these connections and slowed down new customer deployments. Management of these connections is then further complicated by the fact that both ends of the network are not owned by the SaaS provider.
Trustgrid has removed many of these edge data connection obstacles by removing proprietary hardware requirements, simplifying configuration of new deployments no matter where they reside, and providing all of this securely.
Trustgrid’s software-defined networking helps application providers blend the best features of VPN, SDP and SD-WAN to provide a new approach to this new problem. It starts with visibility, scalability, and availability, but it ends with SaaS applications providing a better customer experience that is ultimately more profitable.
