SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 31, 2017) -  CloudGenix, the leader in Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN), announced that it has partnered with leading Michigan-based I/T solutions provider Link Solutions Group, LLC to help businesses in Michigan and the Midwest take advantage of the myriad benefits provided by CloudGenix AppFabric and SD-WAN. Link Solutions is well-known for their comprehensive portfolio of products and services that help businesses improve their data center and cloud architecture to reduce complexity, increase agility, and achieve greater levels of growth, and the addition of SD-WAN to their list of products and services offered helps further extend their value proposition to customers.

CloudGenix SD-WAN evolves the customer WAN to be able to securely take advantage of any transport including broadband Internet, improve application performance and experience, reduce dependency on expensive multi-protocol label-switched (MPLS) private WANs, and reduce remote office infrastructure and cost. CloudGenix SD-WAN is powered by CloudGenix AppFabric, which continually monitors granular transactional performance metrics for each application and WAN link, and enforces policies for those applications based on user-defined requirements for performance, security, and compliance. Unlike traditional packet-routed solutions that are limited to bandwidth, latency, packet loss, jitter, and reachability, CloudGenix understands those metrics in addition to metrics related to application sessions to better understand and enforce policy based on actual application performance, user experience, and business requirements for performance, compliance, and security.

On the partnership with CloudGenix, Clint Babcock, CEO of Link Solutions, said: "Partnering with CloudGenix will allow us to enable customers to realize the benefits of SD-WAN and AppFabric. Using a top-down policy framework for the WAN that aligns with business intent to handle applications based on actual user experience is a fundamental shift from the way things have been done previously. With CloudGenix, we can provide businesses with not only next-generation data center architectures, but fundamentally improve their WAN experience and reduce cost."

Regarding the partnership with Link Solutions, Robert Sexton, Vice President of Channels at CloudGenix, said: "CloudGenix AppFabric is a transformational technology, enabling WAN management and traffic handling based on actual application and network experience using top-down policies. Link Solutions is a proven partner in the Midwest with a core focus on next-generation data center and cloud solutions, and we're excited to work with them to help businesses realize the architectural and operational benefits of AppFabric and SD-WAN."
