Packet Pushers’ Ethan Banks Hosts ‘IWANT CloudGenix Challenge’
LAS VEGAS and SAN JOSE, California – July 6, 2016 – CloudGenix, the software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) pioneer, today announced the “IWANT CloudGenix Challenge” to be held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on July 12th. The multi-round match, hosted by Ethan Banks of Packet Pushers, will pit CloudGenix against Cisco to determine which company delivers the most powerful SD-WAN product. The winner will be determined by the audience – certified network administrators and engineers in Las Vegas for the Cisco Live event.
CloudGenix is radically changing how networks are built and managed. Its Instant-On Networks (ION) product family delivers an application-defined fabric that eliminates the need for hardware routers. Unlike providers of incremental, hybrid-WAN-only alternatives, ION delivers the cloud without compromise to the remote office, ensures high performance for transactional and rich media applications over a hybrid-WAN, and virtualizes the branch – truly delivering on the promise of a software-defined WAN. Enterprises that choose CloudGenix ION eliminate complex networking configurations, reduce WAN costs by over 70 percent, and experience unparalleled performance and availability for data center and cloud applications.
In the “IWANT CloudGenix Challenge,” the audience will put to the test claims by both vendors to determine the most powerful SD-WAN solution for enterprises of all sizes.
