Viptela SD-WAN Gets vSure Integration
A corporate network is tasked with being secure, reliable and fast. For decades, firms leveraged wide area networks (WAN) for communication and connectivity needs. In recent years, like what seems like everything else in tech software has begun its ascent in the form of SD-WAN – a market poised for explosive growth in the coming years.
While setting up a network is one thing, performance is something else. And, this week, Centina Systems announced its vSure SDN/NFV assurance platform is now integrated with Viptela’s SD-WAN. The integration allows service providers and enterprises to monitor and visualize the SD-WAN from a single console.
Anand Gonuguntla CEO and Co-founder of Centina Systems noted, “As our customers deploy SD–WAN, they need an assurance solution that gives them the ability to manage the entire network, including the SD-WAN, to be able to identify and troubleshoot issues regardless of where they occur, and be able to correlate those issues back to the impacted customers at the service level. Our vSure platform not only meets this need but also positions customers for the deployment of additional virtualized services with its ability to assure NFV environments.”
Viptela’s SD-WAN solution already provided users with features like zero touch capabilities, application aware routing, secure segmentation as well as full routing functionality. The Centina integration introduces vSure, which provides an off-the-shelf integration to Viptela’s vEdge routers and vManage NMS as well as speedy deployment and management.
The vSure solution offers more than just visibility into infrastructure and network performance. It also provides service overlays and support underlay infrastructure, SLA conformance, automated problem notifications, pro-active issue resolution and more.
Ramesh Prabagaran, VP of Product Management & Marketing for Viptela said, “This partnership provides customers the visibility and agility they need to quickly identify and remediate problems before they can impact network and infrastructure performance and business operations.”
Software defined solutions are the future, plain and simple. As adoption numbers climb, so too will competition in the space and as a result, “more complete” offerings – with this recent announcement serving as an early example. Firms like CloudGenix, VeloCloud and Viptela will have the coming years to round out offerings.
It should be quite the show.
