1. The architecture in the simplest terms is a VPN based overlay WAN that is vendor agnostic. It is a privatized WAN solution that can leverage any transport such as MPLS, broadband, DSL, Satellite, and LTE technologies to name a few.
2. Benefit include but are not limited to reduction on reliance on cost prohibitive commercially available private network transport solutions such as MPLS, increased bandwidth at a lower price point for cloud based services such as Microsoft Azure, AWS, etc., and granular application level traffic prioritization strategies.
3. Cloud ready depends on your use case, if your cloud environment is privatized the SD-WAN can deliver access securely and privately over public internet. This reduces dependencies on direct connect, NetBond, and other costly transports with greater redundancy. SD-WAN solutions partner and integrate with cloud public cloud service solutions such as Cisco Spark, Zscaler, and other cloud service offerings. These have substantial benefits from a performance perspective due to peering relationships and global reach. However, buyer beware on the costs associated costs. There are multiple providers of these services vying for your business so make the choice that is right for your business needs.
