This means the cloud firm has coverage on the four biggest public cloud platforms in the world

Silver Peak has made a strong stand in the SD-WAN world, announcing a partnership with Google Cloud to become one of the only companies of its kind to have ties with the four leading public cloud businesses in the world.

Before this announcement, Silver Peak had already partnered with Amazon, Microsoft and Oracle, but this latest news means Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect platform is certified for use across the big four’s platforms.

One of the benefits of having such a strong network is that geographically-distributed businesses can now take advantage of Silver Peak’s platform to ensure all locations, across any of these cloud services can run their services securely and with stability. This is the case even if different workloads are offering on different public cloud platforms.

“Enterprise customers gain choice and control in how they execute multi-cloud strategies in alignment with their business requirements,” said Chris Helfer, senior vice president of strategic alliances at Silver Peak.

“By harnessing the full power of the Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform, they can deliver the highest quality of experience to their users whether applications or services are hosted in their own data centers or across any combination of leading public Virtual Cloudsvider’s data centers.”

As well as reliability, Silver Peak’s cross-platform SD-WAN solution also offers reliable broadband services utilising last mile broadband and simple migration between services, without affecting running applications.

Using a multi-cloud strategy will allow businesses to cut costs by giving them the flexibility to choose different Virtual Cloudsviders on a case-by-case basis, with the knowledge that their resources will be running on the most efficient cloud platform for that particular scenario.
