Cloud-Managed Networking

Cloud capabilities increase scale, drive agility, and speed the delivery of new services. This helps IT teams address increasing hybrid workplace challenges, travel restrictions, and budget demands.

Explore the ROI of cloud-managed networking

What is cloud-managed networking?

When it comes to managing a network, you might hear cloud-managed, cloud-based, or cloud-native references. It can get confusing, so we’ve created a page that outlines the basics.

Key benefits of cloud-managed networking

Improve IT agility and efficiency

Cloud-managed networking solutions offer capabilities such as zero-touch provisioning, GUI-driven configuration wizards, and live firmware upgrades. These features help network admins deploy new sites faster while making ongoing change windows far more efficient and error-free.

AI-powered troubleshooting and optimization

When considering a cloud-based management solution, look for capabilities such as built-in, AI-powered network troubleshooting with automated anomaly detection, per site optimization, and client profiling features. Aruba Central offers these essential features and more.

Enhance security with policy-based orchestration and more

Cloud-managed software makes it easier to protect the network while ensuring users have fast, secure access no matter how or where they connect. Replace static VLANs and ACLs with intent-based policy automation and orchestration, intuitive access controls, and AI-based discovery and profiling of all connected clients.

Gain real-time innovation and automatic bug fixes

With cloud networking, software updates for core management features are automatic. New features and functionality are continuously developed and automatically delivered, allowing IT to focus on introducing new services, instead of planning for downtime.

Utilize advanced technologies faster

Cloud-managed networking is ideal for utilizing advanced technologies such as AI-powered optimization and endpoint profiling features because they’re easily added without the need for physical compute and storage. And it’s as simple as putting your cloud ready infrastructure under subscription to get started.
