Versa Networks announced a new capability connecting Versa Secure SD-WAN, on-premises, and cloud branches with applications and resources in Amazon Web Services (AWS) using the new high-performance AWS Transit Gateway Connect feature, an AWS Transit Gateway attachment type that enables AWS customers to connect third-party SD-WAN hubs and network virtual appliances with AWS Transit Gateway.
As a result, businesses can now benefit from AWS Transit Gateway peering connections for up to 5 Gbps of bandwidth per GRE tunnel, while continuing to leverage the high-performance, application and SLA-aware network via the Versa Traffic Engineered Protocol.
AWS Transit Gateway connects Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and on-premises networks through a central hub. Versa Director now integrates with AWS Transit Gateway Connect APIs to deliver an automated, one-click solution for connecting Versa Secure SD-WAN, on-premises and multi-cloud branch locations to each other and with Amazon VPCs.
Versa customers can now easily connect Versa Secure SD-WAN with AWS Transit Gateway for a high-performance and simplified connection between their branch offices, applications and resources in Amazon VPCs.
The native integration with AWS Transit Gateway Connect allows customers to deploy high-bandwidth Versa Cloud Gateways in AWS leveraging the Versa centralized management and orchestration. Customers can also leverage Versa Analytics and monitoring capabilities for end-to-end visibility and tracking of application performance all in one dashboard.
“Organizations are rapidly migrating their applications and data to AWS,” said Mayumi Hiramatsu, Vice President, Amazon EC2 Networking, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We are pleased to work with Versa Networks so customers can leverage the new AWS Transit Gateway Connect feature for seamless connectivity between their branch offices and their Amazon VPCs.”
By integrating with AWS Transit Gateway Connect, Versa enables customers to monitor user traffic when accessing cloud-based AWS applications over Versa Secure SD-WAN or using AWS as the transit network to connect on-premise branches.
Customers also benefit from Layer-7 application and SLA-aware networking features, and performance enhancing features such as application acceleration provided by Versa Secure SD-WAN. Versa Secure SD-WAN is uniquely positioned to leverage AWS Transit Gateway due to its differentiated architecture, Versa Traffic Engineered Protocol, and robust feature set.
New Versa Director capabilities integrate with AWS Transit Gateway Connect APIs using workflows and automation to abstract the configuration requirements of AWS and deliver a simplified, guided experience for configuration.
AWS Transit Gateway Connect seamlessly integrates into customers’ enterprise networking architecture as a transit hub to connect their branches with each other and with Amazon VPCs.
“Versa’s customer base is increasingly leveraging cloud services for hosting applications and connecting branch offices using high quality links,” said Dogu Narin, Head of Product Management for Versa Networks.
“This new integration with AWS Transit Gateway Connect enables customers to benefit from a very high-performance peer-to-peer network. This will be particularly important for our global multi-national customers that require scalable cloud-delivered and highly reliable connectivity between globally distributed branches.”
