the leading provider of network performance orchestration solutions for
a better connected and collaborative world, today announced updates to
its Application-Aware SD-WAN solution, with the release of Ipanema
9.1. By providing richer application performance analytics and
easier configuration of dynamic path selection, Ipanema (News - Alert) 9.1 simplifies
enterprise SD-WAN implementations and enables enterprises to deliver a
greater user experience for business-critical applications as part of
their digital transformation. The new software release follows a record
year of Ipanema deployments.
In the fourth quarter of 2016, InfoVista (News - Alert) shipped the largest number of
Ipanema appliances in its history for a single quarter, and in the
second half of the year, 50 percent of new customers used the solution
to deploy SD-WANs. The Ipanema solution now supports an estimated
300,000 enterprise sites around the world. Ipanema was also named a
"Visionary" in Gartner's (News - Alert) 2016 "Magic
Quadrant for WAN Optimization" for the sixth consecutive year
(Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization, Bjarne Munch, Neil
Rickard, 16 May 2016).
In 2017, InfoVista expects to continue Ipanema's growth through new
deployments, partner agreements, industry accolades and product
enhancements which will build on the release of Ipanema 9.1. With
improved visualization, the software release provides granular
Application-Aware SD-WAN analytics with unparalleled visibility into
application performance and trended user experience. The feature is
supported by statistics, filtering options, and real-time plotting.
These enable intelligent decision making to ensure application
performance for the digital enterprise looking to grow network capacity
and deploy new applications such as unified communications,
collaboration, and SaaS (News - Alert) into the network.
The update also introduces a single screen for configuring global
dynamic path selection rules for application profiles, boosting
ease-of-use and allowing enterprises to better define application
policies with fewer clicks. Furthermore, with enhanced virtualization
support, Ipanema 9.1 now supports virtual appliances for KVM in addition
to VMware, providing added flexibility for InfoVista partners and
"Hybrid WAN is becoming the new norm for businesses in the
Applications Era," according to Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal
analyst with ZK Research. "Enterprises undergoing digital
transformations require unparalleled visibility and control of their
applications to fully leverage these hybrid networks. Application
aware SD-WAN solutions that maximize the user experience while
providing easy-to-use management tools will allow enterprises to
realize the full business value of hybrid WAN architectures."
"2016 was a hallmark year for Ipanema," said Sylvain Quartier, senior
vice president of product management and markets, InfoVista. "The
momentum we saw last year gave us a solid foundation upon which we can
continue developing our software to exceed customer needs. We've
started doing that already with Ipanema 9.1, which reflects two major
customer demands: ease-of-use and high visibility into how application
performance on the network fluctuates in the moment and over time.
With new mechanisms to expose greater volumes of performance data and
promote seamless SD-WAN configuration and deployment, Ipanema drives
an overall improvement in the delivery of a consistent and positive
user experience for applications like Skype for Business, Office 365,
Salesforce and others."
