InfoVista Launches Ipanema 9.1 After Record Year for the Application-Aware SD-WAN Solution

InfoVista, the leading provider of network performance orchestration solutions for a better connected and collaborative world, today announced updates to its Application-Aware SD-WAN solution, with the release of Ipanema 9.1. By providing richer application performance analytics and easier configuration of dynamic path selection, Ipanema 9.1 simplifies enterprise SD-WAN implementations and enables enterprises to deliver a greater user experience for business-critical applications as part of their digital transformation. The new software release follows a record year of Ipanema deployments.

In the fourth quarter of 2016, InfoVista shipped the largest number of Ipanema appliances in its history for a single quarter, and in the second half of the year, 50 percent of new customers used the solution to deploy SD-WANs. The Ipanema solution now supports an estimated 300,000 enterprise sites around the world. Ipanema was also named a "Visionary" in Gartner's 2016 "Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization" for the sixth consecutive year (Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization, Bjarne Munch, Neil Rickard, 16 May 2016).

In 2017, InfoVista expects to continue Ipanema’s growth through new deployments, partner agreements, industry accolades and product enhancements which will build on the release of Ipanema 9.1. With improved visualization, the software release provides granular Application-Aware SD-WAN analytics with unparalleled visibility into application performance and trended user experience. The feature is supported by statistics, filtering options, and real-time plotting. These enable intelligent decision making to ensure application performance for the digital enterprise looking to grow network capacity and deploy new applications such as unified communications, collaboration, and SaaS into the network.

The update also introduces a single screen for configuring global dynamic path selection rules for application profiles, boosting ease-of-use and allowing enterprises to better define application policies with fewer clicks. Furthermore, with enhanced virtualization support, Ipanema 9.1 now supports virtual appliances for KVM in addition to VMware, providing added flexibility for InfoVista partners and customers.
