3 Myths of the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000v
The Cloud Services Router 1000V continues to gain momentum as the virtualized routing and VPN platform for securely connecting your users and branch offices to the cloud. There are a number of public cloud providers offering different levels of functionality at different prices and selecting the right one that meets your needs can be a daunting task. After all, you are placing your most valuable asset, your IT services, in the hands of a third party so selecting the right one is almost like selecting a nanny for your child. Do you go with someone new and dynamic or someone who is more experienced with a good reputation? Beyond selecting a cloud provider you need to think about how to integrate the cloud with your existing network. Some of the questions to consider:
- Will I be able to use my existing management tools?
- Do security services like firewall and VPN meet my corporate standards?
- What can I do for redundancy if there is a problem with my cloud provider?
- Will my users application experience be the same?
These are a few of the questions you should be asking and we are trying to answer with new functionality in the CSR 1000V. Below is a short update from the Director of Product Management for the CSR1000V, Suresh Thirunavukkarasu.
