SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 21, 2016) - CloudGenix, Inc., the software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) leader, today announced the launch of its "IWANT CloudGenix Challenge" Roadshow to enable customers across the country to take part in the popular event that debuted earlier this month during the week of Cisco Live. Certified network administrators and engineers across the nation will have the opportunity to compare CloudGenix ION and Cisco IWAN in a multi-round match, which will ultimately determine the most powerful SD-WAN solution for enterprises of all sizes.
The first IWANT CloudGenix Challenge took place in Las Vegas during Cisco Live!, and was met with great interest from Cisco customers, partners and employees in town for the event. After being tested on setup and deployment, enabling direct-to-cloud over Internet selectively for cloud-based applications, and monitoring and managing the solution to collect business-relevant analytics, CloudGenix emerged the winner, with 10 successful test completions versus Cisco's zero. Now, CloudGenix invites interested certified network administrators and engineers to test the solutions for themselves.
The CloudGenix Instant-On Networks (ION) product family revolutionizes how networks are built and managed. Unlike incremental, hybrid-WAN-only alternatives, its application-defined fabric eliminates the need for hardware routers. CloudGenix' software-based approach 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. 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.
Register here to validate the CloudGenix vs. Cisco showdown firsthand.
