Moving beyond traditional WAN to deliver speed and scale.

Legacy WAN architectures are simply not up to the task of supporting digital transformation trends such as cloud-first and mobility-first architectures. Organizations need to embrace a software-defined Enterprise to achieve optimal application performance. To achieve this, SD-WAN devices should be deployed at sites and gateways where traffic can securely use any transport available to it for the most direct access to the cloud. An agile software-defined Enterprise can instantly identify traffic flows to SaaS applications such as Office 365, Salesforce, or Gmail and apply optimal multi-dimensional policies—for best path selection, QoS, security—and guarantees consistent security posture and application performance.

Versa Secure SD-WAN delivers top-class networking, security, visibility, automation and performance capabilities all built ground-up into the architecture can help organizations of all sizes overcome the challenges and complexities of on-premises, hybrid, or multi-cloud environments.

With a single software platform that meet your networking and security needs, Versa Secure SD-WAN allows organizations to reap the benefits of a fast, agile, scalable, and secure IT deployment can bring including better application performance, smaller attack surface, and ultimately lower cost of ownership.

Full support for a flexible network topology.

Versa supports all topologies including full mesh, partial mesh, hub-and-spoke and other arbitrary topologies. Versa’s control plane provides flexibility to define and establish the topology of choice on any tenant. A single VRF per tenant can have one topology while another VRF for the same tenant can be part of a different topology.

Versa Secure SD-WAN also supports the propagation of routes to multicast source-subnets within MP-BGP. This allows the VPN topology for multicast to be different than that for unicast. For example, the multicast topology can be Hub-and-Spoke whereas the unicast topology can be full-mesh.

Optimized for flexible hybrid and multi-cloud deployment.

Leveraging Versa automation, customers can manage the complete lifecycle of VOS from creation to termination from a single pane of glass, in just a few clicks. The complete orchestration of VOS on cloud is done with true zero touch provisioning. This methodology significantly cuts down cloud instantiation times and operational involvement. Versa eliminates multi-cloud complexity by automating dynamic multi-cloud overlay connectivity from any user/device/branch.

Additionally, VOS can be deployed in a colocation facility like Equinix Network Edge or Versa POPs with a low-latency express connection and on-ramp to multi-cloud and SaaS applications. The cloud experience is fully automated with Equinix Network Edge and Versa POPs for both infrastructure and connectivity.

Versa Secure SD-WAN have several inbuilt optimizations to force SD-WAN nodes to always send traffic back to the originating WAN port with the best traffic performance capabilities, avoiding any chances of asymmetric routing. The solution also leverages several standards-based loop prevention algorithms to eliminate sub-optimal performance and unplanned downtimes.

Versa offers an extensive list of SD-WAN capabilities such as sub-second packet steering across multiple WAN interface, packet loss reduction through services such as FEC, packet replication, and poor performing link avoidance that outperform the competition.
