Organizations with a global presence have to connect all assets seamlessly and interact with each other as if they were in one single location. The concept is one that everyone aspires to, but the complexity of global enterprise digitization can create hurdles to making it a reality. The InfoVista Ipanema (News - Alert) Application-Aware SD-WAN solution was designed for this very reason, and Gartner’s 2017 WAN Edge Competitive Landscape Report has named the technology an Evolutionary Disruptor because of how it addresses these complexities.
Ipanema orchestrates network functions such as application control, dynamic path selection, WAN optimization and WAN security in real-time on a per application session basis for enterprise networks with as a self-learning, self-adapting and self-healing application performance orchestration SD-WAN solution.
With Ipanema the number of applications, sites, providers, users, etc. do not matter. Ipanema uniquely integrates the capability IT needs, and it orchestrates the business applications performance holistically for every users automatically by maximizing the performance over the WAN. These features are delivered with total application visibility and control with dynamic hybrid WAN, WAN security and WAN optimization.
Some use cases include: hybrid WAN; guaranteeing ERP, CRM and business application performance; Unified Communications and Collaboration; and SaaS (News - Alert), Cloud apps.
InfoVista says Ipanema should be considered for all hybrid WAN scenarios because it is an all-in-one solution that dynamically orchestrates and steers individual application-flows on the hybrid WAN. Whether the application hosting model is private datacenter, hosted datacenter, private cloud, or SaaS, it can maximize bandwidth usage by automatically directing the flow to all available WAN links, including MPLS, Internet, wireless, etc. to the link that best matches flow business-criticality with real-time conditions.
“Ipanema has established itself as a solution that reliably maximizes the performance of enterprises’ business-critical applications over the WAN, and we believe our inclusion in this report is a testament to that. Following Ipanema’s inclusion in the May 2016 Gartner (News - Alert) Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization for six consecutive years, we feel it is an honor to be continuously recognized by the industry’s leading authority on information technology,” said Sylvain Quartier, senior vice president, product strategy enterprises, InfoVista (News - Alert).
