Nyansa Launches Network Analytics for Private Cloud

Nyansa has launched a service to allow enterprises to manage network performance for private clouds. The private cloud version of its Voyance network analytics platform is designed for enterprises with a high level of privacy requirements.

Voyance was previously available as a service offered over the public cloud, running on either Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) or Microsoft Azure; it now can run on-premises, either as a physical appliance or in the company's own environment, the company announced May 1. (See Nyansa Looks to Diagnose Cloud Application Performance Mysteries.)

Voyance doesn't just measure network performance -- it provides recommendations for ways to improve the client experience on the network, Nyansa says. "We're not throwing data at them. We're answering questions," says David Callisch, Nyansa marketing vice president. "We're trying to understand from the client perspective what the experience is like on the network."

Nyansa claims the global market for private cloud and on-premises network performance management will reach $1.1 billion by 2020 with a compound annual growth rate of 38%. Nyansa attributes those statistics to research by MaretsandMarkets.

Nyansa's typical customers are midsized to large enterprises, with complex environments and highly mobile users, in the technology and retail industries, as well as higher education and healthcare. These enterprises are deploying both human-facing and Internet of Things applications, says CEO Abe Ankumah.

Network analytics has been a busy area for vendors, as the cloud, mobility and Internet of Things put increased demand on enterprise networks. Cisco bought analytics assets, intellectual property and staff from Saggezza early this month. (See Cisco Buys Analytics Assets From Saggezza.)

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.
