Product at a Glance
Ipanema automatically maximizes application performance over the WAN by uniquely integrating the capabilities that IT needs to holistically orchestrate business application performance for every user, regardless of the IT complexity (number of applications, number of sites, telecom providers, number of users, etc.): Application Visibility & Control, dynamic Hybrid WAN, WAN security and WAN optimization.
Ipanema is objective-based, which enables CIOs to set application performance objectives in line with the enterprise business priorities and objectives. It combines in-depth flow visibility together with sophisticated control algorithms down to the flow level to enforce SLA compliance.
Ipanema should be considered for all hybrid WAN scenarios as it offers the most sophisticated and solid all-in-one solution to dynamically orchestrate and steer individual application-flows on the hybrid WAN. It maximizes bandwidth usage by automatically directing every single flow to the link that best matches flow business-criticality with real-time conditions of all available WAN links (MPLS, Internet, wireless, etc.), regardless of the application hosting model: private datacenter, hosted datacenter, private cloud, or SaaS.
Ipanema’s architecture consists of a web-based central management system to provision, monitor and report on application performance and SLAs, and a wide range of physical and virtual (VNFs) network endpoints that match the needs of all sites, from very small branch offices to the largest datacenters.
Ipanema is also available as cloud based service with IpanemaGO.
Provides full understanding of application usage and performance over the global network – from the smallest detail up to SLA-based application performance management.
Dynamically adjusts network behavior and resources to the exact application traffic demand – guaranteeing critical application performance in the most complex and changing traffic situations.
Accelerates application response times and offers additional virtual bandwidth to the network by enabling application acceleration and data deduplication.
Dynamic WAN Selection
Enables Dynamic hybrid WAN for multi-networked branch offices, selecting in real-time the best path according to actual performance and application traffic characteristics.
Protects branch Internet connections from threats by encrypting traffic over IP VPNs to public and private DCs and forwarding Web traffic to Secure Web Gateway providers that allows or denies traffic to go directly to the Internet.
To lead your IT transformations, you are frequently required to amplify your WAN bandwidth, increase service availability and improve agility. You may find that your WAN links are becoming rapidly overwhelmed, since a lot of new IT service and application transactions are rising from users to data centers, the Internet and the cloud. In such a context, your WAN can quickly become a blocker to the success of your digital transformations. With Ipanema, InfoVista will help you to fully realize the promises of your Hybrid WAN by empowering IT organizations to dynamically orchestrate all hybrid links – MPLS and direct Internet – from a single, “all-in-one” solution.
Guarantee ERP, CRM & business application performance
To maximize efficiency, enterprises strongly rely on their IT organizations to deliver business critical applications hosted centrally in private datacenters or in a cloud, including, ERP, CRM, Financial Management, Business Intelligence and specific business applications. Ipanema solution helps you to protect every application flow in the entire WAN. You can enforce a SLA defined by the level of criticality of your business application and their related operational process.
Unified Communications and Collaboration
New UCCs can dramatically increase employee collaboration, e.g. in international environments. However due to the dynamicity of traffic and content that employees share, UCCs generate very complex traffic matrixes that directly impact the global performance of the enterprise network and its applications. Ipanema helps you to deliver an excellent level of experience to end users, while protecting the rest of your critical applications. You can allocate the bandwidth of each individual video and file flow – and protect voice calls from jitter and instantaneous messages from unacceptable delay – while the performance of the ERP or the SaaS apps are also preserved.
SaaS, Cloud apps
One of the main challenges that enterprises face with their cloud apps is that the public Internet is now becoming part of the customer WAN and the performance of cloud flows can be jeopardized by competing non-critical flows – such as YouTube or Dropbox – at the transit point to the Internet. Ipanema addresses all the above requirements, protecting other business applications and accelerating the rollout and adoption of SaaS applications. Ipanema delivers an excellent level of experience to end users, guarantees bandwidth for each individual file transfer – applying compression mechanisms, for instance – without putting real time flows at risk.
