Market Research Brief: Cloud Networking SD-WAN Growth Outlook 1 Building, securing and operationalizing enterprise cloud networks with native cloud networking and advanced network and security services Multi-Cloud Networking Highlights of this Market Brief: • The increase in enterprise cloud deployments has created demand for multi- cloud networking. Multi-cloud network architectures must use native cloud Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to abstract, automate, secure, and improve networking within and between multiple public clouds. • Multi-cloud solves problems in connecting multiple public clouds. Enterprise organizations interviewed by Futuriom and others have expressed the need to automate intra- and inter-cloud network connectivity. • Growing security and compliance issues. Managing networks presents many security and compliance challenges, all of which can be served by a well architected multi-cloud networking approach. • Multi-cloud networking can solve key cloud network operational challenges. Building a common multi-cloud network data plane that leverages both native cloud networking constructs and advanced network and security services can be used to solve many operational challenges including network visibility, security, compliance, redundancy, and applications reliability. • Multi-cloud networking use cases are growing. Key use cases include: o Multi-cloud Transit Networking o Network as Code Automation – Single Terraform Provider o Bringing Enterprise Security Policies and Next Gen Firewalls to the cloud o Multi-Cloud Automation and Workflow Provisioning o Day-two operational Visibility and troubleshooting o Leveraging hyperscaler infrastructure for Enterprise Virtual WAN o Simplified enterprise acquisition and integration • Abstraction-driven automation. The future of multi-cloud networking will be driven by using APIs to connect a variety of public cloud frameworks and platforms that simplify the creation and operation of multi-cloud networks.
