CA Technologies announced 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.

CA 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.

“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, GM, Agile Operations, CA Technologies.

CA offers comprehensive network performance monitoring and analytics capabilities, enabling organizations to realize the true benefits of their SD-WAN investments and cover all strategic network locations (enterprise, service provider) along the pathway to the cloud. These enhancements are in addition to existing support for software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV) and Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
