Enterprise IT has gone through several waves of evolution since the birth of computing. The computing platform has evolved from mainframe computing to minicomputers, shifted to client/server computing, and finally moved to Internet computing in the cloud era. 

The growth of hybrid cloud deployments accelerated the transition to hybrid wide-area networks (WANs). Private networks, such as MPLS, are being joined by Internet connections that offer a choice in delivery channels—costly, but predictable, networks for mission-critical loads and cheaper public networks for bulk loads such as data backups.
