February 22, 2018 – San Jose, CA – Members Credit Union, a not-for-profit credit union based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has selected CloudGenix SD-WAN to simplify their WAN infrastructure, improve agility, and reduce dependencies on telecommunications vendors.
Members Credit Union’s mission is to improve the financial well-being of their members and serve them with excellence consistently, regardless of their financial status.
Members Credit Union selected CloudGenix AppFabric SD-WAN because of its ability to enable deployment of branch office connectivity in days, as opposed to months required when telco-provided MPLS is involved. Further, CloudGenix AppFabric SD-WAN allows Members Credit Union a level of flexibility and agility they had not experienced previously, the ability to support a variety of WAN connectivity options, consistent user experience with their applications including core banking, and WAN high availability.
Prior to CloudGenix, Members Credit Union had struggled with provisioning and deployment times of MPLS circuits from telco providers, inconsistent service levels, difficulty in resolving outage situations, and inconsistent application performance. Matt Baldwin, I/T Director at Members Credit Union, said, “The time to implement CloudGenix was mind blowing. Having worked 20+ years in I/T, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to deploy. The technology just works. We tested failover of a live call from MPLS to an Internet link and it was seamless. Our users experience consistent performance with CloudGenix in place, and we have confidence knowing that a link outage won’t take a branch down or impact our ability to serve our members.”
CloudGenix AppFabric SD-WAN is a revolutionary solution that allows businesses to interconnect remote sites with applications deployed anywhere – in the cloud, data center, or SaaS – using a business-centric set of policies for performance, security, and compliance. CloudGenix uses metrics collected from both the network and application transactions to provide the best possible user experience over any WAN transport including broadband, MPLS, and LTE. Additionally, AppFabric exposes critical key performance indicators for both networks and applications to help improve management, monitoring, and troubleshooting for both networks and applications.
