SD-WAN and high availability options

SD-WAN and high availability options

SD-WAN and high availability options

Describes a few options for how a sophisticated SD-WAN solution, that provides a high availability architecture for Datacenter devices, could be configured.

MADRID, MADRID, SPAIN, October 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This article describes a few options for how a sophisticated SD-WAN solution, that provides a high availability architecture for Datacenter devices, could be configured.

These devices monitor the network to obtain information concerning the web links as well as the network status. When a device finds that a network resource is not available, it routes the web traffic flow to another hub.

In an SD-WAN network remote devices are grouped and connected with each other utilizing the VRRP Protocol, hence using high availability for all devices attached to the LAN. If the key device was not functional, the secondary device would take control, using the very same IP address to the other devices which operations would not be impacted.

When high accessibility is configured in the SD-WAN, the hub devices (AR’s) are independent, and the remote devices choose their preferred group. These are some the main features:

a) Every hub device acts as an Access Router (AR).

b) The AR’s are not organized into sets.

c) The Branch devices pick their own prioritized set of ARs:

– Priority is made use of for multipath alternatives: if a service, which in the end is a network or IP address, can be reached by several AR’s, the one that has the highest priority will be chosen.

– The set of AR’s is assigned to the branch device the CNM (Customer Network Management service) with the chosen group information.

In the following case three AR’s are able to access to routers of 2 datacenters, 2 of their preferred sets, as well as three branch devices:

– Both AR’s in datacenter A have actually been included in the preference group A.

– The only AR in preference group B is the one in datacenter B.

With SD-WAN any prioritized sets of AR’s are linked to every branch device by the Customer Network Management services, ruled by the preference group’s traffic and load-balancing settings:

This SD-WAN design is extremely flexible in managing datacenter connection problems. In this option, not all routers need to access all of the services made available in the distinct datacenters. As a result, each AR readily available services are dynamically accessible to the branch devices:

– All AR’s make use of the exact same self-sufficient Border Gateway Protocol system.

– All branch devices use the same independent Border Gateway Protocol system.

– The eBorder Gateway Protocol is utilized to onward Datacenter solution courses to branch devices.

– Directions from branch devices are not sent to the any remaining branch devices.

– In order to make spoke-to-spoke possible for communication, the AR’s produce a default route that is sent to branch devices.

– Branch devices establish their preferred rout (BGP local preference) for each and every application group, based on the AR’s priority order, connection analysis, route preference and SLA assessments.

– Branch devices will pass on routes to all the connected ARs (not only the preference AR).

In the following option a datacenter failover SD-WAN architecture is implemented by using two services.

The device gets the service’s routes, where each service is accessible through its very own collection of AR’s. The process is fully dynamic, and the routes are instantly updated when the availability status of any service is altered.

The SD-WAN Cloud Network Manager (CNM) is configured based upon containers that offer high internal availability and reliability. Likewise, the Cloud Network Manager can be implemented on 3 different services, mounted in a cluster. In this configuration, if one device turns inactive, users can continue accessing the Cloud Network Manager and its services are not impacted.

The SD-WAN’s network devices will still continue to work normally if the connection to the Cloud Network Manager goes down totally. This is due to the fact that the configuration remains in the device, and all defined policies and application routing choices are made independently in each remote device. Those devices also have the performance logs stored, ready to be sent back once the connectivity has been reestablished.

A brief history and the needs for safety and security of SD-WAN

History of SD-WAN and current security of SD-WAN

History of SD-WAN and current security of SD-WAN

What is SD-WAN – a definition. SD-WAN (software defined WAN) is an innovation based upon the more comprehensive concept of SDN (software defined networking).

MADRID, MADRID, ESPAñA, October 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — What is SD-WAN – a definition

SD-WAN (software defined WAN) is an innovation based upon the more comprehensive concept of SDN (software defined networking). It enables companies as well as enterprises to set up plans to disperse the network web traffic. The central site of any SD-WAN service has complete control of its sites or workplaces as well as the website traffic which runs via the network, using a Controller. This network Controller is also capable of initiating edge devices on the websites or offices to be set up with zero touch provisioning. One more big benefit that SD-WAN provides is the option to produce an online overlay of the transportation network that is in charge of carrying the website’s traffic data.

What are SD-WAN’s origins

Early in the 2000's MPLS gradually ended up being the network technology utilized by companies and big enterprises because it was a network supplied by the network providers that offered vital benefits. As the end of the initial decade approached, these exact same big businesses and companies wanted and also required to alter their typical MPLS facilities for numerous reasons. Internet lines (specifically xDSL lines) are becoming more trustworthy as well as they can definitely defeat MPLS on the continually increasing data transfer needs, implementation time as well as cost. Organizations started to examine the options of using normal Internet lines, but they still were to develop adequately to be able to facilitate moving from the currently used MPLS lines to normal Internet connections. That's when the bases of SD-WAN were set.

A quick introduction into the origins of SD-WAN

As became clear that standard venture networks (MPLS, …) were not likely to be completely valid in the near future, study and also examinations started in finding means to changing the network to be adjusted to the businesses and large organization’s interaction needs. Among these research studies was the project named “clean slate” that had been developed at Stanford University. At the end, the specialists of the Stanford University concluded that the network requires to be dedicated to transferring data, whilst the network management to be controlled centrally from a central site.

With the approach of separating completely data and control layers, the Stanford University researcher’s design of a new technology paradigm grew into what was later to end up being the base today’s SD-WAN technology. As soon as the project investigations reached this conclusion, it became obvious that SD-WAN was the future for modern network configurations that large enterprises and companies would be implementing.

Cybersecurity, an important aspect of SD-WAN

Due to the fact that many of the SD-WAN implementations make use of open public networks on the Internet, security within SD-WAN is of crucial significance. The need is clear that websites require take care of vital business information, commonly handled by cloud applications and similar web solutions, internet surfing, as well as providing the accessibility of site visitors to the network, with their website traffic originating from diverse sources on the web or in the cloud. Furthermore, one of the fundamental of SD-WAN is that we know that there is a need for two basic levels: the network control level as well as information level and both require to be secured.

Some SD-WAN suppliers have a safety and security option that integrates, device protection overlay safety protection and cloud security.

First of all, there is the device protection, based on a Level 7 firewall program with LAN as well as WAN encapsulation using VRFs. There is the overlay safety level that covers data and verification and integrity, as well as data confidentiality that are handled through IPSEC as well as sectors isolating various network zones and domains, supplying central means for defining end-to-end subdivisions in the SD-WAN implementation.

Now, the Cloud protection is divided into 3 sections. There are affordable offerings, utilizing the most effective protection options to deal with numerous malware threats. These services use malware defense, web filtering as well as network analytics, CPE agnostics, cybersecurity policy configuration, all based upon DNS resolution.

Additionally it provides for a sophisticated protection options that offer extra safety procedures for SD-WAN solutions, acting as a NGFW. Specifically important for systems that allow public cloud access for remote offices and branches. This supplies central services with IDS/IPS capacity, sandboxing, antispam, antivirus, and so on, based upon a modern Check Point technology and is totally integrated within the network administration portal.

In addition, this SD-WAN implementation utilizes its advanced Network Traffic Analytics software with and expert level system for security. This provides an affordable and also unique service for SD-WAN safety and security, enabling an advanced system to find and also avoid safety dangers proactively.

What Makes Distributed Software Development an Optimal Model for PMs, CTOs, and Product Owners?

What’s different now is that distributed development is happening on a completely different scale.

NAPLES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Labor markets have not recovered from the economic disruption that took place in 2020 around the world. Both employment losses and the reduction in working hours were at a historically unprecedented scale, four times more significant than in 2009. And now, in 2021, challenges for employers took a new form – companies simply can’t find the right people to fill vacant positions.

Many projects are not delivered due to the paradox of high unemployment rates happening at the same time as record job openings.

Plus, employers are still paying wages for “idle time” – periods when employees are on the clock but unable to complete the job.

What also needs to be mentioned is average earnings in the IT sector are rising at the expense of employers. This change was motivated by the need to attract and retain workers. However, retaining talent is getting increasingly difficult. Developers tend to work on several projects simultaneously, which doesn’t reflect positively on their corporate loyalty.

Why Distributed Development Is Taking Over
In response, businesses are switching to a different way of teaming up with developers – in a remote, collaborative, and distributed development fashion. At the beginning of the pandemic, companies were forced to adapt to “the new abnormal” and switch to remote work. But now that most of the dust has settled, we can see areas that will never be the same. Distributed teams are a part of the “new normal”.

The trend is not new. Distributed development has long been recognized as advantageous for businesses. To name just a few positives, it allows companies to employ a diverse, highly skilled workforce without geographical limitations. Next, it reduces the cost of employment, alleviating the need for face-to-face meetings and travel expenses (especially helpful in the current wage context). Lastly, it provides enough structure to have a well-organized project but also enough flexibility to increase productivity and trust.

What’s different now is that distributed development is happening on a completely different scale. Once a voluntary measure, it became a necessity in 2020 and then grew into a strategic advance.

How Decision-Makers Can Shift Mindsets and Behaviors When Adopting DSD
Distributed software development requires a change in mindset. Thus, businesses need to adopt unique working patterns and adapt existing patterns to strengthen remote work. The first practice to pay attention to is setting up a boot camp at the start of the project. It solves two distinct purposes – ensures a shared understanding of the tooling, code standards, the definition of done, and initial architecture design and creates a welcoming virtual environment.

Next is what we call a “rotating guru”. This is someone who communicates the home team’s context to members of the distributed team. In turn, the distributed team has the opportunity to insert their own insights, making it a two-way collaboration. Do not confuse it with an inspection or audit. During their stay with the local team (which ideally takes several weeks), the guru works as a regular team member. The goal is not to intimidate the team but to foster a relationship where ideas and initiatives can thrive.

While co-located teams have the luxury of communicating face-to-face, there needs to be a close equivalent of that for distributed teams. Make the extra effort to maintain continuous, high-bandwidth communication, once again, for several purposes – the effective exchange of information, overlapping schedules, and to keep up with key events.

It is also possible to spin the difference in time zones in a way that benefits the shared goal. By pairing up a member from one distributed team with a member of another distributed team, managers encourage knowledge transfer. But similar to the “rotating guru”, it’s important to separate these pairings and form new ones.

What most of these efforts come down to is creating a shared community. This refers to the team spirit as much as it does to the project’s knowledge base. All teams need to have access to a single source of information. Otherwise, it leads to misinformed actions and downtime.

Guidelines for Managing Co-Located and Remote Teams
As businesses set up their new geographically distributed network, there are a few guidelines:

All teams should be treated equally, with no division into in-house/outsourced.
Find the balance between monitoring and trust.
Maintain the same standards across the entire hiring process.
Build self-sustaining teams (a few developers + PM + QA).
Separate program management from engineering.
Prevent convergence of architecture frameworks with regular design team meetings.
Prioritize testing.
Recognize achievements and arrange virtual meetings that everyone can participate in.
When it comes to in-house vs. outsourced models, the good news is that businesses can choose both. Intetics combines the best practices of the Remote In-Sourcing model and Offshore Dedicated Teams. Having completed multiple projects, it’s safe to say that both models can co-exist in a coordinated manner. And with online collaboration and communication tools, it is possible to bridge the gap between teams working on different components and modules.

One of the values Intetics upholds is creating partnerships with our clients – by delivering on promises and keeping an open mind for future long-term projects.

These teams share the result-oriented approach and commitment for each project. And in times of conflict, the teams remain self-sufficient, knowing how to take care of local processes.

Many businesses have already faced the challenges of organizing remote work. So, being able to rely on a successfully established system of remote dedicated teams is always a significant leg-up.

We are ready to support your project at every step of the way, you could find more about new trends in our White Paper: “Distributed Software Development: How to Build Your Product and Create Your Team” or just contact us to Get Started.
