Network is the Wild Wild West - Episode 040 - Erik Knight

I Love Data Centers

SD-WAN has been hyped for a few years now as a "game changer" in the industry that will replace WAN MPLS networks. I have definitely seen a rise in the numer of clients and consultants starting to deploy these solutions lately, and can clearly understand the value in the visibility and control these environments provide end users over their networks.Much like Cloud Computing however, nearly every network service provider is now claiming to have some form of SD-WAN solution. In an attempt to better understand the myriad of options available and the underlying technology behind the solution I pulled in Erik Knight, Founder and CEO of SimpleWAN to talk shop as he was one of the first people to explain this solution to me years ago. Erik is a seasoned entrepreneur and technologist with a big heart and I am positive you'll enjoy this conversation on many levels. Enjoy!
