Wright Pierce Selects CloudGenix AppFabric to Build Sustainable SD-WAN

April 24, 2018 – San Jose, CA – Wright Pierce, an engineering firm based in Topsham, ME, has selected CloudGenix AppFabric to build a sustainable SD-WAN, gain visibility into health and performance of WANs and applications, and improve reliability in support of global collaboration.

Prior to CloudGenix, Wright Pierce had managed a WAN comprised of products from several different vendors leading to unsustainable complexity, difficulty in gathering insights into performance and health, and an inability to quickly diagnose and identify the root cause of issues.  “Our WAN was difficult to manage because we had so many different vendors and products.  Even with multiple links, it felt like our high availability strategy was to just pray.  With CloudGenix, we have a top-down AppFabric with high availability, global management, and visibility into how the WAN is operating”, said Krey Sims, Senior Network Administrator at Wright Pierce.

Wright Pierce also selected CloudGenix to better support global data sharing and collaboration through use of the cloud as well as their deployment of Panzura Freedom hybrid cloud NAS.  Their previous WAN created numerous stability, availability, and performance issues, which made it difficult to fully embrace the cloud, and it also created productivity barriers for engineers collaborating on data in Panzura CloudFS.  “We needed a reliable WAN that enabled our desire for global collaboration and empowered our employees to be productive .  We are able to realize the full benefit of our Panzura deployment since migrating to CloudGenix.  Our engineers are productive and get the best possible user experience while collaborating across sites”, said Sims.

Wright Pierce chose CloudGenix because AppFabric helped simplify their WAN, improved global collaboration, and provides visibility into the health and performance of each of their WAN links, sites, and applications.  Robert Marsh, I/T Director at Wright Pierce, said, “CloudGenix is reliable and simplified our WAN.  It just works and does exactly what it says it will do.  CloudGenix has fixed WAN issues that were affecting cloud applications and our global collaboration platform.”

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.
