The Rise of the Business Internet – Sponsored by Graphiant

Fall 2023

In today’s dynamic world, enterprise infrastructure teams grapple with the challenge of designing networks to support complex hybrid topologies across diverse cloud providers and regions. This calls for an all-encompassing strategy to manage data transfer costs in this digital wilderness.

In today’s day and age, solutions must simplify the network and be offered “as-a-Service”. This will enable enterprises to connect and consume without building and operating. As a result, enterprises can avoid cumbersome setup delays and reduce their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Join Khalid Raza, CEO and Founder of Graphiant, as he delves deeper into what this modern solution for modern enterprises looks like and how it differs from past legacy solutions like SD-WAN.

Khalid will explain how this innovative solution will connect various locations and multi-cloud environments over the public internet by utilizing a stateless core for secure, encrypted workloads, whether it is for internet or private last-mile traffic, including jumbo frames, and how you can leverage this to accelerate cloud workloads.
