VMware’s SD-WAN, NSX and Container Plans For Nyansa
Nyansa employees and technology will become strategic to VMware’s SD-WAN by VeloCloud business and NSX-focused network and security vision. Nyansa will help enable VMware to provide end-to-end network visibility, monitoring and remediation solution that can proactively predict issues, optimize application and network performance, and make sure IoT devices are working correctly.
“The acquisition of Nyansa will accelerate VMware’s delivery of end-to-end monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities for LAN/WAN deployments within our industry-leading SD-WAN solution,” said Sanjay Uppal, vice president and general manager for VMware’s VeloCloud Business Unit.
Nyansa’s CEO Ankumah said, as part of VMware, his company will continue creating a new networking paradigm: “An analytic-powered and software-defined virtual cloud network that connects clients to containers in dynamic and distributed enterprise.”
The two companies began partnering in 2019. In a blog post this week, Nyansa’s three founders said it quickly became clear that the Nyansa Voyance end-user centric analytics platform complemented VMware’s overarching network vision.
“Nyansa Voyance will extend the VMware portfolio further into the enterprise campus and branch by adding software-defined capabilities on Wi-Fi and LAN devices to deliver end-to-end visibility and control, while also adding new data and analytics capabilities to the VMware data center portfolio,” said Nyansa’s three founders, CEO Abe Ankumah, CTO Anand Srinivas, and Daniel Kan, vice president of engineering.
