Cloud technology has completely shaken and redesigned the IT world and forever changed the way businesses are run. It’s no wonder then, that increasing cloud adoption is impacting Wide Area Networks as well.
Since the introduction of WAN, constant research has been carried out to find ways to improve it. Over the last decade, Internet content, applications, and users have grown exponentially and now with the advent of cloud computing, networks are made to handle ever-increasing amounts of traffic.

This is where service providers, like Sify, have integrated network and cloud services to create a new transformational approach to redesigning the existing WAN landscape – WAN Transformation.
