Executive Opinion

Vice President and General Manager, Sanjay Uppal, VeloCloud Business Unit, VMware, said, "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. Nyansa is a proven solution that solves many of the shortcomings of today’s vendor-specific solutions. Nyansa currently analyzes user network traffic from more than 20 million client devices across thousands of customer sites at companies including Tesla, Uber, Lululemon, Rooms To Go, GE Healthcare, SF International Airport, Stanford, Northeast Georgia Healthcare System and many others."

Chief Executive Officer, Abe Ankumah, Nyansa, said, "Joining forces with VMware provides an amazing platform for Nyansa to continue executing on the vision of a new networking paradigm: an analytic-powered and software-defined virtual cloud network that connects clients to containers in dynamic and distributed enterprises. Nyansa and VMware are perfectly aligned in technology, products and culture. Following the close of the acquisition, we will continue to advance our AI-driven multi-vendor network analytics platform and double-down on end-to-end user experience and IoT operational assurance."

Nyansa's Value addition to VMware

The addition of Nyansa Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities to VMware's existing network and security portfolio will enable the customers to troubleshoot and operate the Virtual Cloud Network and further VMware ability to enable the self-healing networks.

Based on the user, network and application data, Nyansa can proactively predict client problems, optimize their network performance, enable the behavior of critical IoT devices, and justify infrastructure changes. Additionally, Nyansa’s data ingestion and analysis, including packet analysis and metrics via API across multi-vendor wired and wireless LAN environments can be also leveraged, notes the announcement.

Nyansa also offers its a vendor-agnostic, cloud-based AIOps platform called Voyance. The solution is going to help consolidates within conventional network monitoring tools into a single, multifunction analytics platform to deliver visibility into the behavioral analysis of critical device performance across the entire infrastructure.

The company solution, as of now, analyses user network traffic from more than 20 million client devices across the thousands of customer sites at companies, which include the Rooms TO GO, GE Healthcare, Tesla, Uber, Standford, Lululemon, and others.

The deal is expected to close in the VMware First quarter of 2021. The customary closing conditions for this acquisition were not disclosed.
