World’s Lowest-Latency Software-Defined WAN Expands Reach -- AppHUB™ Global Application Delivery Platform Expands to 185 Markets in 41 Countries
HERNDON, VA -- CFN Services, the high-performance application delivery company for hybrid cloud IT environments, announced the expansion of its global application delivery platform to reach 185 markets in 41 countries across North and South America, Europe and Asia. CFN’s infrastructure platform provides the World’s lowest-latency software-defined (SD) WAN currently available to the enterprise. Continued investment in market growth allows CFN to provide enterprise grade performance for mission critical cloud applications and infrastructure at the lowest-latencies on a global scale. CFN clients leverage the AppHUB platform to provide globally distributed users secure, high performance direct access to legacy applications and cloud services across the distributed enterprise.
CFN’s expansion has been propelled by critical mass cloud adoption in the enterprise market. According to the 2015 IDG Cloud Computing Survey, over seventy percent of enterprises have at least one cloud application or a portion of their computing infrastructure in the cloud, with expected growth. While cloud services, such as Salesforce, AWS, AZURE, and others, can be global in their availability, access locations can be far from enterprise end-users and data sources -- resulting in latency, congestion, and poor performance. Enterprises leveraging the public internet or MPLS providers face further performance impediments competing with continued lifts in the over 10,000 global cloud services available today as well as competition from bandwidth-heavy consumer applications, such Netflix, YouTube, and Facebook.
As enterprise mission critical applications and data continue to move off-premise, traditional enterprise architecture dependent on hub and spoke carrier , MPLS networks interconnecting users to applications in the data center , no longer provide the quality of service, scalability, application performance, or ease of management needed in this new IT environment. CFN’s globally distributed high-performance application delivery platform connects more than 70 regional cloud hubs worldwide via an enterprise-grade, low latency network with built-in diversity and redundancy for predictable performance.
“As cloud adoption accelerates for the digital enterprise, it’s more critical than ever for IT leaders to ensure consistent application performance across both the legacy and cloud domains. We’ve continued the rapid expansion of our AppHUB platform to maintain pace with the ever expanding geography of the distributed enterprise and cloud service ecosystems,” said Mark Casey, President and CEO of CFN Services. “Our AppHUB platform delivers deterministic latency, jitter, and packet loss on a global scale, ensuring guaranteed application performance for our clients worldwide.”
