Service providers and enterprise network teams are reducing their dependence on proprietary hardware by implementing virtualized network functions (VNF) in software that run on industry standard servers and white box appliances. With this paradigm shift in network infrastructure, managing the network also requires a major shift to enable the rapid design, automation and programmable service delivery made possible with VNFs.
Versa Director is the Versa Networks platform that simplifies the creation, automation and delivery of network services using Versa FlexVNF software. It provides the essential management and orchestration capabilities needed to deliver Versa VNF-based network and security services for a variety of use cases, including virtual CPE (vCPE), SD-WAN and branch security. Network functions managed by Versa Director range from basic connectivity to branch security to SD-WANs with layered security.
Versa Director provides a single pane of management for connectivity and services. It scales to thousands of end customers through multi-tenancy and role-based administration.
Combined with Versa FlexVNF, Versa Director provides complete VNF infrastructure lifecycle management, from deployment and configuration to ongoing monitoring and change management of Versa and third party VNF-based services with automatic action such as auto-healing and auto-scaling.
The result is rapid delivery and simplified ongoing management across the full range of Versa-based services and WAN/branch deployments.
