VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), is to acquire Nyansa, Inc., an AI-based network analytics platform provider.
The amount of the deal – expected to close in VMware’s fiscal Q1 FY2021, subject to customary closing conditions – was not disclosed.
Nyansa will enable VMware to deliver an end-to-end network visibility, monitoring and remediation solution within VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud that can proactively predict client problems, optimize application and network performance and assure the behavior of critical IoT devices. The addition of Nyansa’s AI/ML capabilities to VMware’s existing network and security portfolio will enable customers to operate and troubleshoot the Virtual Cloud Network and further VMware’s ability to enable Self-Healing Networks.
Led by Abe Ankumah, chief executive officer, Nyansa provides a vendor-agnostic, cloud-based AIOps platform. The solution consolidates key functionality within conventional network monitoring tools into a single, multifunction analytics platform to deliver visibility into and behavioral analysis of critical device performance across the entire infrastructure. With Voyance, organizations can automate the end-to-end analysis and correlation of critical infrastructure data to improve the productivity, performance and security of critical devices on the wired and wireless network.
The company’s solution currently analyzes user network traffic from more than 20 million client devices across thousands of customer sites at companies including Tesla, Uber, Lululemon, Rooms To Go, GE Healthcare, SF International Airport, Stanford, Northeast Georgia Healthcare System and many others.
Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, VMware provides software that powers complex digital infrastructure. The company’s compute, cloud, mobility, networking and security offerings currently serves over 500,000 customers globally, aided by an ecosystem of 75,000 partners.
The acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on fiscal 2021 operating results.
