Deployment Options


Versa Secure SD-WAN is a centrally managed solution. The management infrastructure (also called Headend) consists of: 

  • Versa Director

    A centralized provisioning and management application for VOS orchestration.

  • Versa Analytics

    A big data tool that provides historical insights, prediction and forensic analysis for networking, SD-WAN, application and security .

  • Versa Controller

    A VPN concentrator and route reflector that provides secure connectivity from the branches to the headend nodes. It also provides the control plane backbone for exchanging real time reachability, route, topology, performance and SLA information between the branches.

The Versa Headend is a true multi-tenanted system with role based access control ( RBAC ) to provide separation between the tenants. The headend can be deployed and consumed in a variety of models.


On-Premises

This deployment model is favoured by large F-500 enterprise customers who have 100s of globally distributed branches, and/or enterprises with complex regulatory or security requirements. The Headend is typically deployed in the customer premises (Data Center) either on baremetal appliances or virtual environments. Alternatively, the customer could also choose to deploy the headend in a public cloud environment. 

In the on-premises deployment model, the administrative control is completely with the enterprise IT team. Based on requirements, the headend can be deployed so that data never leaves the enterprise network. The entire headend can be air-gapped from the internet to provide additional level of security.


Partner Hosted

This deployment model, also known as “managed service provider”, is favoured by enterprises who want to consume SD-WAN as a managed service. In this model, the Service Provider team is responsible for configuration management and monitoring of the enterprise SD-WAN network.

Service Providers take advantage of Versa’s multi-tenancy capability to deploy a single headend shared across multiple tenants. Versa Role Based Access Control (RBAC) allows the Service Provider to securely share the co-management of the enterprise network between the Service Provider and the enterprise IT team. 


Cloud-Delivered

Versa provides cloud managed orchestration to both Enterprise and Managed Service Providers. This is available for Versa Secure SD-WAN for Enterprise and for Versa Titan for Lean-IT enterprises. Versa offers cloud managed orchestration as a service in a shared or dedicated option in both public and private cloud.

In this model, the Versa cloud headend is deployed in a geo-redundant manner and is managed and maintained by Versa NOC 24 X 7. Role based access control ( RBAC ) is leveraged to segregate different tenants and to provide a virtually private headend. In this model Versa NOC is responsible for managing and maintaining the headend, while the customer IT team is responsible for management and monitoring of the CPEs.
