5 Things You Couldn’t Do Before VPLS Which You Now Can

Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) is an enabling technology. It allows you to remove costly complexity and network duplication inherent in most legacy WANs. It allows you to centralize your firewall distribution to multiple sites, whilst giving you a cheaper, simpler and easier to manage WAN infrastructure.The true business benefits of VPLS are endless, and a key word often used when describing or referring to VPLS is ‘Simplify’. Having implemented VPLS network solutions throughout the UK  from 2006, we have created a list of 10 things you can do with VPLS, which simplify the way in which your WAN infrastructure operates, or putting it bluntly, 10 things you can’t do without VPLS:
Wide Area virtualisation – Virtualisation projects can escape the building because different buildings in different locations think they are all on the same LAN. Virtualisation investment can be shared across all sites.
No stovepiping:- as companies add services or move to SaaS each new service can be added to the existing platform as part of a unified solution – there is no need to stovepipe new services and support on separate circuits. Investment is future-proof and cost effective.
VPLS masks the fact that SaaS services are not being sourced locally increasing user acceptance and guaranteeing usability.
Solving Sarbanes Oxley requirements – Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity can be supported further by moving servers to locations 10’s of Kilometres away with the addition of now only a few milliseconds making it imperceptible to end users.
The enterprise customer’s comms room can be split up and hosted from different sites to further extend DR practices.
