About the project:
Cohesive Networks are a cloud-native network and security company. The flagship product, VNS3, offers enhanced network services in all virtual environments, enabling use cases from simple VPN tunnels to distributed cloud networks with high availability.

Imagination, a global creative agency, decided to migrate a new ERP application to a central Microsoft Azure location, but discovered they could not connect multiple VPN connections and Azure only supports IKE version 2. After unsuccessful hardware tests, Cohesive Networks were able to help Imagination set up, design, and launch quickly. Imagination were able to implement their Azure migration within 2 months. “Without VNS3 we wouldn’t have been able to use Azure and go live within our timeframe,” said Paul Saunders, Imagination’s Head of IT – EMEA & Global Networks.

About the Awards:
The Storage, Virtualisation, Cloud (SVC) Awards reward the products, projects and services as well as honour companies and teams operating in the cloud, virtualisation and storage sectors.

The Cloud Project of the Year category recognises organisations that have implemented a cloud-based project (public, private or hybrid cloud) in EMEA. The winning nomination must prove how the team addressed a technology challenge, used innovation, overcame challenges, and produced tangible benefits.
