The WAN-aware cloud
Clouds are great. They just need to be smarter about what's
cloudScape enables service providers to marry the cloud with the WAN.
Cloud is complex. Here are some resources to help simplify it.
We are passionate about cloud. And WAN. And lots of other things as well.
Cloud, meet WAN.
WAN, this is cloud.
the WAN-AWARE CLOUD
Cloud is great. Virtually anything you need is available whenever you need it in precisely the right size and for exactly the right length of time. Cloud is an everything-as-a-service (EaaS) world.
The intercloud WAN, on the other hand, is unlike cloud in almost every regard. Basically, with the WAN it’s a little-or-nothing-as-a-service (LoNaaS) world.
Network service providers can employ the Siaras cloudScape platform to construct "WAN-aware clouds." By doing so, they can offer their enterprise customers a more comprehensive cloud offering that includes a variety of dissimilar public and hosted private "underclouds." They can also offer a cloud service that efficiently leverages one of their primary assets--network connectivity--in order to deliver a more compelling and competitive cloud offering.

Wide range of public underclouds
Possessing broad and deep network assets coupled with modern data center infrastructure, service providers are in an ideal position to dominate the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market. All that has been missing, up until now, is a mechanism capable of federating diverse cloud data centers while at the same time automating intercloud WAN connectivity.
Siaras, with deep experience providing solutions to network service providers around the globe, has developed an innovative new software platform, cloudScape, that enables these operators to seamlessly blend network and cloud assets. The result? WAN-aware clouds offering a richer, more diverse set of federated cloud resources coupled with automated, on-demand, traffic-engineered intercloud WAN connectivity.
