Ipanema Technologies Launches WAN GOVERNANCETM, a Set of Innovative Features and Professional Services, Available Immediately

Ipanema Technologies, the leader in integrated WAN Optimization and Application Performance Management solutions, today announced the launch of a set of innovative features and services enabling enterprises to establish WAN GOVERNANCE™ .

WAN Governance is where WAN optimization and application performance management meet IT governance. Enterprises will be able to manage their Wide Area Network (WAN) with predictability and coherence, aligning the network to the needs of the business. WAN Governance is underpinned by Ipanema's unique Autonomic Networking platform.

The main benefits to enterprises are:

  • User Experience Guarantees - Enterprises can ensure that all users of business applications receive the performance they need 100% of the time
  • Business Application Acceleration - Enterprise can maximize application performance and gain effective bandwidth usage of up to 1,000%
  • Simplification of Network Operations - Enterprises can reduce the amount of time they spend managing the network to as little as a few hours per month.
  • Network cost reduction - Enterprises can reduce their network costs by a factor of up to 3

Building on the experience of hundreds of customers having used its technology for global and strategic WAN deployments, Ipanema simultaneously announced that Wan Governance is also available as a service, Wan Governance Professional Service. This service is delivered by Ipanema and its certified partners in order to enable IT organizations to manage their WAN from a business perspective, through:

  • CXO-level dashboards for application and network performance using a unique KPI: the Application Quality ScoreTM,
  • Application SLAs,
  • SLA based capacity planning,
  • SLA based cost allocation and so on.

“The WAN is so critical to enterprises’ productivity that the time has come to consider it from a business perspective. Throwing bandwidth and technology at it is not the appropriate attitude in today’s world,” explains Thierry Grenot, CTO at Ipanema Technologies. “Looking at the global enterprise network from a business angle rather than as a collection of technical objects totally changes the perspective. Thanks to WAN Governance, it is now possible to address fundamental questions such as ‘what is the right network cost’ and ‘what is the best mix of resources and technologies required to make users of critical applications productive’. From a governance point of view: understanding the situation, deciding on the strategy, applying decisions and managing potential gaps and pitfalls. All of this via an integrated and easy-to-use platform.”

“Using the WanGov services delivered by Ipanema makes our network fully predictable. Usage and performance are transparent; we get easy-to-understand KPIs. There are no more mis-applied resources and we can now clearly fine-tune the network budget/performance tradeoff according to our business priorities. And of course, our users benefit from an excellent quality of experience in any circumstances.” says Patrick Withers, Network Manager at Guerbet, one of the world’s leaders in medical imaging.

Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infrastructures like Docker and Kubernetes.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data environments, and cloud data warehouses like Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery and Azure SQL DW, have given the cloud its own gravity - pulling data from existing environments. In this presentation we will discuss this transition, describe the challenges and solutions for creating the data flows necessary to move to cloud analytics, and provide real-world use-cases and benefits obtained through adop...
