Please Contact us for more information.


Versa Analytics is purpose-built for Versa Secure Cloud IP Platform for use-case focused analytics covering SD-Routing, SD-WAN, SD-Security, and SDBranch. It is a rich near real-time big data solution that provides visibility and control, base-lining, correlation, prediction and feedback loop into Versa software solutions. It provides near real-time and historical search, reports on usage patterns, trends, security events, and alerts. Versa Analytics analyzes large amounts of data sent from FlexVNFs to present critical data points as actionable analytics and reports. Tight native integration with Versa FlexVNF ensures optimized storage, search and performance.

Versa Analytics has built-in multi-tenancy that enables a single cluster to provide service for hundreds of customers, enabling deployment flexibility and economy of scale. It tightly integrates with Versa Director for complete rolebased access control. It is operations-ready and supports standard protocols and log formats, such as Syslog and IPFIX, making it compatible with existing SIEM, monitoring, and reporting systems. Versa Analytics is extensible and flexible via REST APIs.

The comprehensive and native capabilities reduces costs and simplifies deployments and data analysis by reducing the dependency on various 3rd party data analytics platforms. For multi-vendor environments, Versa Analytics interoperates with well-known performance management applications and 3rd party services.

The result is carrier-grade, multi-tenant big data analysis and visibility for realizing the full value proposition of Versa software-defined solutions.
