HAWTHORNE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the economy improves, organizations of all types are expanding their existing offices and opening new ones. These organizations are also turning to VPN solutions that allow secure and reliable access to critical data on the local network. A high-quality VPN facilitates safe, effective and cost-efficient WAN clustering—an architecture critical for organizations with offices around the world.
WAN clustering, also referred to as geoclustering, is a network architecture through which multiple servers are housed in different geographical locations from what appears to be a single, highly-available network to users. WAN clustering allows business environments to run operations uninterrupted and maximize employee productivity by ensuring information assets are available anytime, anywhere—a substantial competitive advantage.
HOB, the market leader in pure software-based remote access solutions, helps enterprises better understand WAN clustering and VPN technologies with a new e-paper now available for free download on the HOB website. The e-paper describes the capabilities of WAN clustering and how to select the optimal VPN for an organization.
Additional topics in the e-paper include:
The Role of Wan Clustering in Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
The potential of a natural disaster or cyber attack destroying a server is becoming increasingly common. How does WAN clustering help remove the risk of losing critical data?
The Usefulness of Load Balancing
As businesses grow and become geographically dispersed, the amount of people connecting the server at one time may cause it to slow down. What can WAN clustering do to help balance the load of traffic and allows users reach data more quickly?
How Well Managed VPNs can Maximize WAN Clustering Potential
Integrating the optimal VPN will maximize the potential for a well designed WAN clustered architecture. How can IT teams strike a balance between accessibility, speed and cost when choosing the appropriate VPN for their WAN clustering needs?
Creating the Optimal WAN Clustering for Your Business’ Needs
It is critical to consider the short- and long-term goals of an organization when creating a WAN clustering architecture. What are vital concerns IT teams must consider and how can network activity be monitored so that these goals are met?
Selecting the Best VPN Technology for Your Network
When selecting the best VPN technology for an organization, IT teams should study the types of traffic that will travel over the VPN. What additional objectives should IT team determine before selecting which VPN technology to implement?
“As businesses disperse geographically, WAN clustering becomes a critical capability for business functionality,” says Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “The ability to connect distributed servers also requires high quality VPNs so that remote employees can seize the benefits of anytime, anywhere and uninterrupted connectivity and bring IT teams the confidence that data is secure and safe for the organization to run.”
