Another SD-WAN startup leading the market is CloudGenix, which offers its Instant-On Networks (ION) family of products that deliver an application-defined fabric that eliminates the need for hardware routers. In contrast to traditional hybrid-WAN alternatives, ION provides the cloud without compromising remote offices or the need to rip and replace infrastructure. San Jose, Calif.-based CloudGenix recently launched its ION 2000 series hardware appliance designed to meet the needs of small and remote offices with up to 150-Mbps of connectivity. The startup launched its first-ever partner program last year seeking partners wanting to catch the growing SD-WAN wave.
