High Availability

Posted on: May 15, 2019, by Nick Johnson

In case you’d wondered, we are all about High Availability at Evolving Networks.  It’s at the core of everything we do – keeping businesses online.

With a simple philosophy of using software to make connectivity better, we embraced the power of negative thinking and over-engineering to come up with a unique ecosystem of network and products.  By integrating our software with our CPE and multi-VNO access network we can make your connectivity as resilient as you like.

But is it all about the network?  One aspect long ignored by SD-WAN providers across the globe is of the single point of failure that is your endpoint device.

It’s all very well feeding it with multiple links, from multiple carriers, with multiple tail types.  Do all that and you’ve got a really resilient connection.  But it’s still running through a single box on your premises.

This is where we’ve taken the next step with our technology.  Applying the software overlay to multiple appliances on site.

We’ve always wanted to bring the technology of the datacentre to the edge.  Our Intelligent Network Fabric was always designed to run from customer sites to more than one datacentre.  We have taken the same technology and extended it all the way into your offices.

Instead of a single EVX unit, we can supply two or more, connected up permanently to all onsite links.  If one EVX develops a fault, the next one will immediately kick in.

But unlike old-fashioned methods of failover, our INF is there on each device all the time, able to pass data.  There is no configuration change to move from the primary to secondary EVX.  There is no need for central orchestration or an engineer.  It just works.

High Availability has often been expensive, or complex, so most SD-WAN providers haven’t even tackled it.  If they do, its based on old methods of central automated orchestration rather than superior Active-Active networking.

Hardware resilience is important, and we’ll back it up with an improved SLA for every HA pair of appliances.  The important thing is that you stay online.  Prepare for it now, rather than waiting until it does happen.
