Versa Director is Versa Networks’ virtualization and service creation platform that simplifies the creation, automation and delivery of services using Versa WAN edge software, FlexVNF. Versa Director provides the essential management, monitoring and orchestration capabilities needed to deliver Versa’s Secure Cloud IP architecture network and security software services. Services supported by Versa include routing and advanced connectivity to direct traffic across multilink WAN access and simplify control for SD-WAN with embedded advanced security.

Versa Director provides single-pane-of-glass management for connectivity and services. It scales to thousands of end customers or organizations through hierarchical multi-tenancy and role-based administrative capabilities. Combined with Versa FlexVNF WAN edge software, Versa Director provides complete VNF infrastructure lifecycle management for bare metal and virtual machine environments, from deployment and configuration to ongoing monitoring and change management of Versa and third party VNF-based services with automatic actions such as auto-healing and auto-scaling.

Versa Director also provides a rich set of interfaces for effective integration with third party products and services. Versa Director supports service definitions including Versa and third party service components, enabling flexible service chain creation and deployment. In addition, utilizing open and widely available protocol and API formats allows for tight integration with operations and business systems. The result is rapid delivery and simplified ongoing management of Versa-based services, from basic connectivity to advanced SD-WAN and branch security.
