Digital platform company VMware has revealed a plan to acquire AI-based network analytics vendor Nyansa.

According to VMware, acquiring Nyansa will allow it 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 better assure the behaviour of critical IoT devices."

Other benefits are said to be to make it easier for customers to operate and troubleshoot the Virtual Cloud Network and to extend VMware's plans for self-healing networks.

"The acquisition of Nyansa will accelerate VMware's delivery of end-to-end monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities for LAN/WAN deployments within our industry-leading SD-WAN solution," said VMware's VeloCloud business unit vice president and general manager Sanjay Uppal.

"Nyansa is a proven solution that solves many of the shortcomings of today's vendor-specific solutions. Nyansa currently analyses 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."

Nyansa Voyance is a vendor-agnostic, cloud-based AIOps platform that can consolidate network infrastructure monitoring onto one analytics platform to simplify planning, deployment and management.

Nyansa CEO Abe Ankumah said "Joining forces with VMware provides an amazing platform for Nyansa to continue executing on the vision of a new networking paradigm: an analytic-powered and software-defined virtual cloud network that connects clients to containers in dynamic and distributed enterprises.

"Nyansa and VMware are perfectly aligned in technology, products and culture. Following the close of the acquisition, we will continue to advance our AI-driven multi-vendor network analytics platform and double-down on end-to-end user experience and IoT operational assurance."

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of VMware's fiscal 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. No information was provided about the value of the transaction or other terms.
