VMware has announced that it plans to acquire AI-based network analytics company Nyansa. VMware will add Nyansa’s AI and machine learning capabilities to their existing network and security portfolio.
“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,” said Sanjay Uppal, vice president and general manager, VeloCloud Business Unit, VMware. “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.”
According to VMware, the acquisition will allow it to provide end-to-end network visibility, monitoring, and remediation within VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud.
With the acquisition of Nyansa, VMware will offer a solution that predicts client problems, optimizes application and network performance, and better assures the behavior of critical IoT devices.
“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,” said Abe Ankumah, chief executive officer of Nyansa. “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.”
