Versa Networks & CA Technologies
September 13, 2017
Networks has entered into a partnership with CA Technologies to
integrate its Cloud IP Platform with the Network Operations and
Analytics platform from CA.
The Versa Cloud IP Platform integrates L3 to L7 networking and multiple
layers of security in software to enable highly flexible, scalable and
secure SD-WAN and SD-Branch deployments. Its Versa Analytics engine
collects data across the SD-WAN to provide deep visibility into
application performance and enables real-time and historical insights
for better management and prediction.
Network Operations and Analytics software from CA Technologies includes
industry leading network management solutions; CA Performance
Management, CA Spectrum and CA Virtual Network Assurance, which provide
for easy fault and performance management of traditional and SDN
architectures for a familiar operational user experience and continued
use of standard network operating procedures.
The integration of Versa Networks’ Cloud IP Platform with the Network
Operations and Analytics platform from CA Technologies enables
enterprises to centralize real-time monitoring across their entire
SD-WAN and network infrastructure.
This enables users to:
•Have a unified, single-pane-of-glass
view of all their vendors and applications across their network
infrastructure, including the Versa Cloud IP Platform and its portal.
•Utilize CA’s expertise in
operational user interface and workflows for layered networks with
•Analyze and correlate the
performance of Versa SD-WAN for optimizing application performance
within the CA-based monitoring and management platform.
•Detect, isolate and address problems
in real-time across the entire enterprise network for faster triage.
•Expand their overall visibility,
analytics and SLA management to include Versa routing, security and
•Tie all of this into CA’s open
backend analytics platform that combines network, infrastructure and
application performance data to deliver root cause and operational
insights into the effect on the digital experience.
“IT organizations today are struggling to effectively manage their
networks to address digital transformation and the ongoing move to cloud
IT. Versa’s partnership with CA Technologies provides visibility into
the entire network infrastructure, enabling IT organizations to manage
their networks more effectively to meet business objectives,” said Kumar
Mehta, founder and chief development officer at Versa Networks.
more organizations move workloads into the cloud, SD-WAN is becoming a
dominant networking technology,” said Ali Siddiqui, general manager,
Agile Operations, CA Technologies. “The integration of Versa Networks’
high-performance SD-WAN architecture into our next-generation network
performance management solutions along with our backend analytics tying
infrastructure to application experience; extends the benefits of SD-WAN
while ensuring the customer experience in the digital age.”
Versa Networks’ Cloud IP Platform removes the complexity from WAN and
security architectures, increases agility, reduces cost and provides a
better user experience for cloud and SaaS applications. It enables many
different use cases for enterprises and service providers, including a
full software-defined branch (SD-Branch), secure SD-WAN, as well as
low-cost managed SD-Router and SD-Security for service providers.
