VMware Closes Acquisition of VeloCloud Networks

As applications and data continue to be distributed more broadly from the data center to the edge, customers are increasingly relying on software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WANs) versus traditional networking for flexible, secure connectivity. It’s for this reason that I am pleased to share that we officially closed our acquisition of VeloCloud Networks today, bringing their industry-leading, cloud-delivered SD-WAN solution to our growing software-based networking portfolio. The acquisition of VeloCloud significantly advances our strategy of enabling customers to run, manage, connect and secure any application on any cloud to any device.

Service provider partners, including those currently using the VeloCloud SD-WAN solution, talk with us about how together we can help you increase competitiveness and service innovation.  Read full announcement to learn more.
