eStorm's private WAN provides you peace of mind knowing that your applications and data are delivered fast on a dedicated secure network regardless of location.
Highly scalable, cost effective, secure and flexible private networks / private IP
An optimised private WAN can truly provide peace of mind! Users can access information in the cloud as quickly and simply as if it were stored on local area networks (LANs). Furthermore, your applications and data are delivered on a dedicated and secure network over long distances, regardless of location.
Gain easy access to information in the cloud as if it were stored on a local network
By leveraging managed IP services, you can establish your own cost-effective private network that facilitates an efficient and productive workforce. Private IP networking is not only flexible and secure, but offers a highly scalable private wide area network (Private WAN) that integrates all business locations and internet access.
When it comes to private WAN and managed IP services, there is simply no one better than eStorm.

MPLS vs. SD-WAN: Which is better?
Traditionally, organisations connected their branches, sites and retail locations to their central data centre via a Wide Area Network (WAN) model relying on individual MPLS connections in each site. As a result, all data, workflows and transactions (including access to cloud-based services or the internet) required traffic to be backhauled to the data centre for processing and redistribution. Compared to an SD-WAN solution, this is extremely cost-inefficient.
Comparatively, SD-WAN reduces costs by providing optimised, multi-point connectivity using distributed, private data traffic exchange and control points to give your users secure, local access to the services they need - whether from the network or the cloud - without securing direct access to cloud and internet resources.
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a private connection linking data and branch offices. MPLS is typically outsourced, managed by service providers who guarantee network performance, quality, and availability. Because MPLS is essentially a private network, it is considered reliable and secure, but also expensive. WAN architectures based on traditional MPLS use a model where the traffic from the branch is backhauled to the cloud through the headquarters or a centralised data centre when accessing cloud applications. MPLS becomes increasingly expensive when traffic is backhauled; internet is slower due to the latency added by distance the limited bandwidth available over MPLS.
Such disadvantages can impact employee productivity and user experience. Furthermore, MPLS is not designed to handle high volumes of WAN traffic resulting from software as a service applications and cloud adoption.
SD-WAN is a newer approach to wide area networking (WAN) that separates the network control and management processes from the underlying hardware and makes them available as software that can be configured and deployed easily.
SD-WAN greatly benefits organisations looking for more flexibility to connect remote networks. SD-WAN networks manage multiple types of connections, including MPLS, broadband and long-term evolution (LTE), and route traffic over the best path in real time.
As for the cloud, SD-WAN can forward internet and cloud traffic directly to your branches/sites directly to the branch without backhauling. By routing traffic over different network paths depending on priorities, you can empower productive teams, optimise application performance, and minimise service disruptions.
SD-WAN can deliver a great user experience and better application performance, but it isn't without it's own disadvantages. Because it leverages the congested internet as the WAN middle mile, network performance and reliability can still suffer. IT teams that try to solve these challenges have few options; build their own complex SD-WAN hub infrastructure and interconnectivity, or hire multiple vendors and service providers, which increases complexity and cost. Finally, unlike MPLS, SD-WAN is not a private network. For that reason, security tends to be bolted on and is usually an afterthought; creating complexity and security risks.
While MPLS offers many benefits, SD-WAN allows businesses to make their network more efficient and dynamic. SD-WAN is suited for businesses that boast multiple locations and heavy traffic. Overall, SD-WAN is more cost-effective than MPLS, and offers higher capacity bandwidth, centralised management, network visibility, and multiple connection types.
