PALO ALTO, Calif., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nyansa, Inc, ("ni-ans-sah"), a fast-growing innovator of a new generation of IT network analytics software technology, today launched Voyance Live. Voyance Live (http://www.nyansa.com/voyancelive/) is a free public portal with anonymous networking and IT operations insights gleaning from analyzing enterprise networks around the world.
For the first time, Voyance Live delivers a remarkable view into myriad network issues, client incidents and service performance being experienced by organizations everywhere. Voyance Live shares no customer data – just anonymized insights and analytics learned from enterprise networks. The rationale behind Voyance Live is to give organizations quantifiable answers to often debated network and ongoing IT operations concerns using real network data.
Available for anyone to view, Voyance Live is continually updated, delivering unbiased network analytics, client, network and service trends not possible from any single service platform using conventional technology. Voyance Live uses real network data from hundreds of thousands of devices under observation within Nyansa's new commercial network analytics service called Voyance.
Using a new approach coined cloudsourcing, Voyance Live collects and processes petabytes of network data, analyzing billions of client events and detecting tens of thousands of incidents – displaying the results within an elegant and easy to digest data dashboard.
With Voyance Live, IT professionals can now gain a detailed understanding of network, client and service behavior and best practices across the industry, that are often unknown, debated or not well quantified. The inaugural edition of Voyance Live highlights things such as:
- Wi-Fi protocol, channelization and band usage,
- access point capabilities,
- 5 GHz capable Wi-Fi clients being used,
- top web and SaaS application bandwidth consumers,
- device O/S issues with network services such as DHCP, DNS, RADIUS and more.
"The introduction of Voyance Live represents a new step in liberating network data analytics for the industry at large," said Abe Ankumah, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Nyansa, "Organizations can get objective answers to burning IT and network questions that continue to hound them. We believe that the collective insights gleaned from our analysis of large datasets can benefit the entire networked world, helping organizations better understand the value that big data network analytics delivers in making more informed decisions about the quality of the user experience, trends and efficient operation of the network services and apps."
BACKGROUND ON NYANSA'S VOYANCE SERVICE AND TECHNOLOGY
Based on patented technology, Voyance is a new, commercially available vendor-agnostic IT network analytics service, purpose-built for heterogeneous enterprise environments.
Voyance delivers extraordinary insights into client access, network services, IoT devices and enterprise applications issues that impact the user experience.
To do this, Voyance inspects, analyzes and correlates all wired and wireless data as well as wireless metrics across the entire network-application stack, giving IT staff new power to automatically baseline issues in their environment, establish an objective benchmark for good performance, pinpoint specific problems and suggest their root causes and remediation.
Software-based, requiring no sensors or client software, one or more VM-based Voyance software crawlers extract and inspect all wired traffic from a mirrored, span or tap port as traffic passes through network switches with zero impact to network performance. This information is fused with wireless metrics gathered from WLAN controllers. Voyance currently supports Cisco, Aruba and Ruckus WLAN controller environments. The system can also ingest metrics from other critical on-premise systems such as the Skype for Business SDN API for additional network-application correlation.
Palo Alto, California-based Nyansa is a fast-growing innovator of advanced IT analytics software technology, venture-backed by Formation|8, a leading Silicon Valley venture firm. Founded in September 2013 by Abe Ankumah, Anand Srinivas and Daniel Kan, the company employs technology professionals from MIT, Meraki, Aruba Networks and Google, and is credited with developing the first cloudsourced, vendor-agnostic network analytics system, called Voyance, purpose-built for increasingly mobile enterprise network environments.
Completely focused on the end user experience, Voyance is the only analytics system that provides cross-company correlation and benchmarking of network metrics and trends. Voyance uniquely extracts, analyzes and correlates wired and wireless data for every user — in real-time and over time — across the entire network-application stack. With Voyance, organizations can now proactively predict problems, optimize their network and justify infrastructure changes based on actual data, radically reducing the time and expense related to optimizing IT network operations from the client to the cloud.
