CA Technologies Enhances SD-WAN
May 15, 2017
Technologies has made a new release of CA Performance Management that
includes monitoring support for dynamic software-defined wide area
network (SD-WAN) architectures built on Cisco IWAN and Viptela. Advanced
analytics provide for optimal performance of cloud workloads and
correlate SD-WAN performance to application performance.
“CA addresses the hottest software-defined networking technology today.
Nearly 88 percent of enterprises either currently deploy SD-WAN today or
plan to do so within the next 12 months,” said, Shamus McGillicuddy,
senior analyst, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “With the
integration of fault, device, flow, and packet analysis, CA Technologies
delivers a comprehensive approach to unified monitoring and analytics of
SD-WAN and legacy WAN technologies.”
In recent research, EMA recommends that network operations adopt a
comprehensive and unified approach to managing traditional WAN and
SD-WAN environments that offers extended visibility into both and
enables end-to-end network operations.
Performance Management, a big data solution for managing traditional and
software-defined networks, turns inventory, topology, network fault,
device metrics, flow, and packet analysis into actionable intelligence
for network operations teams. All levels of help desk staff and NOC
engineers can easily troubleshoot SD-WAN infrastructures to minimize
service disruptions with a dashboard that incorporates health indicators
and intuitive visualizations.
“Vosko is excited to be working with CA to deploy managed services of
software defined networks,” said Rob van der Weijden, manager Managed
Services, Vosko. “CA Performance Management integrated with best of
breed fault management and innovative relationship-based SDN assurance
is enabling Vosko to service customers in Netherlands who need help
managing SDN networks.”
“By partnering with leading SD-WAN vendors such as Cisco, CloudGenix,
Versa and Viptela, we are advancing our modern network monitoring
solutions and using analytics to provide reliable and incredible network
insights for application experiences,” said Ali Siddiqui, general
manager, Agile Operations, CA Technologies.
