Versa Networks has introduced 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.
“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.”
“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.”
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 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.
