Viptela and SevOne announced a strategic partnership to provide a unified and highly scalable solution to monitor Software Defined-Wide Area Networks (SD-WANs) as part of an enterprise’s complete digital infrastructure.

The companies have completed the integration of the SevOne Digital Infrastructure Management Platform with Viptela’s SD-WAN platform. This combination enables data center and network operators to view health status information from the Viptela network within the SevOne dashboard to reduce the cost and complexity of managing their IT infrastructure.

Global organizations commonly have thousands of branches and retail locations around the world which they need to connect over their WAN. The Viptela SEN (Secure Extensible Network) platform allows large enterprises to “mix and match” private and public IP connections such as MPLS, wireless LTE/4G, broadband and Ethernet to meet application requirements based on geographic location, bandwidth and whether they are based in the branch office, campus, data center or cloud. The Viptela vManage application provides configuration management and monitoring to diagnose and remediate problems across WAN networks.

The combination of Viptela and SevOne provides the visibility to assure the health of the largest SD-WAN networks in real-time from the SevOne dashboard by integrating intelligence from vManage. This enables customers to:

- Maintain a single, unified view of both the Viptela SD-WAN and other network devices and components across their entire digital infrastructure

- Visualize in the SevOne interface the status of Viptela SD-WAN application-aware networking and policy-based routing used to optimize application performance

- Diagnose, isolate, and address problems in real-time across the entire enterprise network for fast resolution

“Businesses are transforming into digital enterprises, differentiated by software, applications, and continuous innovation. However, as enterprises leverage software-defined infrastructures and networking to solve these business critical challenges, they require a current and complete view of their infrastructure and the services it supports to ensure performance and, at all costs, avoid service outages,” said Jim Melvin, CMO at SevOne. “Viptela is a proven leader in SD-WAN with deployments in finance, healthcare and retail that range from mid-sized to the largest organizations in the world. SevOne’s unparalleled speed-at-scale makes it the ideal complement to maximize the performance of software-defined infrastructure while minimizing risk.”

“The combination of Viptela and SevOne enables both mid and large enterprises to monitor their SD-WAN infrastructure and services within the same application they use to oversee the rest of their enterprise network,” said Ramesh Prabagaran, VP of Product Management and Partnerships for Viptela. “This partnership provides customers the visibility and agility they need to quickly identify and fix problems before they can impact network and infrastructure performance and business operations. We chose to partner with SevOne to provide customers the flexibility to monitor the health status of Viptela SD-WANs within a leading, highly scalable digital infrastructure management platform.”
