InfoVista Joins Wind River Titanium Cloud Ecosystem

InfoVista enables communications service providers to accelerate the deployment of its virtual application performance guarantee solution in NFV environments

PARIS, France and HERNDON, Virginia—July 9, 2015—InfoVista, the leading provider of network performance orchestration solutions for a better connected and collaborative world, today announced it has joined the carrier-grade Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem. This partnership will enable service providers to quickly and easily deploy InfoVista’s application performance guarantee virtual engines, which will accelerate the time-to-revenue of their application-aware network service portfolio in environments based on network functions virtualization (NFV). 

Through the Titanium Cloud ecosystem, Wind River collaborates with industry-leading hardware and software companies to ensure the delivery of optimized, validated and pre-integrated solutions to help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying infrastructure based on NFV. Service providers and TEMs can confidently select these products knowing that they are pre-integrated and validated with Titanium Server and ready for deployment in live networks. 

By joining the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem, InfoVista has put itself in the best seat to help communications service providers (CSPs) and IT-intensive enterprises successfully transition to NFV environments. InfoVista’s new virtual engine integrates Ipanema’s leading application visibility and control, WAN optimization, dynamic WAN selection and network rightsizing functionalities together on a single, centrally controllable, virtual platform. The company also recently joined the HP OpenNFV application partner program to help CSPs assure application-aware network service performance and quality over virtualized and dynamic networks for their enterprise customers.
