PORTLAND, Ore., April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bigleaf, the cloud-first SD-WAN, is taking its services global. In an announcement today, the popular cloud networking provider said it has expanded its network and services to three of Europe's major telecom hubs — Frankfurt, London, and Amsterdam — with plans to expand to Paris and Australia later this year.
The global expansion comes as business appetite for the benefits of SD-WAN heats up around the globe. MarketsandMarkets predicts the SD-WAN market will grow to $4.1 billion by 2023.
"The world is moving to the cloud and companies need the right networking platform to make that move successful," said Joel Mulkey, founder and CEO of Bigleaf. "Bigleaf has seen tremendous growth in the U.S. because we anticipated this shift and intentionally built our SD-WAN offering from the ground up for the cloud. The need for our Cloud-first SD-WAN is growing throughout Europe and Asia and these new POPs give us the global reach to bring Bigleaf to more customers through our channel partners."
Cloud technologies found a foothold in the U.S. and have been steadily moving into Europe and Asia as companies embark on the now familiar and necessary migration to the cloud. Mid-market European cloud adoption is at the same level as it was in the U.S. three years ago. According to Bigleaf, that adoption is being driven by applications like UCaaS and Microsoft Office 365. Gartner predicts that global spending on cloud infrastructure and services will hit $214B in 2019, representing more than 50% of global enterprise software spending. Business who rely on those cloud services will need a way to ensure consistent and reliable internet performance anywhere in the world and SD-WAN will be a critical part of delivering that performance.
As a purely channel-focused company, Bigleaf can now be sold by partners that have international customers who need a unified SD-WAN solution. For many partners, Bigleaf's push into international markets will allow them to continue selling the solution they've come to depend on in North America. Bigleaf expects to rapidly expand to additional regions outside of Europe in response to customer and partner demand.
