Versa Networks has aligned with service provider and system integration partners that have achieved AWS Networking Competency status and are an AWS Partner Network (APN) Partner supporting AWS Direct Connect.
Versa APN operator alliances include Verizon, Comcast, Centurylink and Zayo, with Zayo initiating the first package offered in the AWS Solution Space 
“SD-WAN is another way we’re leveraging our extensive fiber and MPLS backbone to better serve our customers,” said Tyler Coates, SVP of the Zayo Enterprise segment. “As an extension of our WAN business, it makes network management easier and more cost-effective. SD-WAN uses automation and software to manage capacity and integrate different access technologies. Customers also benefit from the ability to connect to the AWS environment much more efficiently.”
The Versa solution is designed to allow for easier enterprise-branch WAN connectivity that extends to customers’ cloud environments with all the advantages of Secure SD-WAN, including fully encrypted traffic through DCA (direct cloud access) and direct Internet conduits, and HA edge routing through Versa leveraging Amazon Transit Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs). This next-generation branch-cloud network topology is based on an architecture scalable across thousands of applications and VPCs, as well as thousands of on-premises nodes that automatically spin up SD-WAN tunnels to customers’ SD-WAN virtual appliances deployed in their Amazon VPCs.

The Versa architecture for AWS incorporates application-aware routing, application traffic optimization and transport diversity (MPLS, Internet, LTE, DCA) with the capability to leverage cloud-interconnect and gateway solutions for private, direct access to AWS. The combined solution provides uniform, secure SD-WAN policies spanning on-premises edge/branch connectivity and Amazon VPCs. Enterprise customers can also benefit from an operator managed service powered by Versa that delivers:

• Intelligent application experience multi-path steering – automate path selection based on application performance and experience across the WAN from the branch or SD-WAN virtual appliances within AWS
• Simplified networking and security policies – unify and maintain policy consistently from a single point-of-control for SD-WAN-enabled endpoints in the branch and AWS

Addressing the optimization and security of branch access to cloud-hosted mission-critical applications and workloads, in a dynamic, simplified and automated manner, is essential for contemporary business operations. Secure SD-WAN services enable enterprises to create an enterprise-wide cloud-network fabric that accelerates modern day application consumption demands and supports enterprise digital agility, speed and security, all while ensuring and improving end-user experience for productivity, collaboration and business services.

The Versa solution offers a secure cloud-native, multi-tenant, multi-service software platform solution for the cloud-enabled enterprise that was designed to deliver:
- Improved Manageability and Control, bringing the power of automated, centralized operations to distributed enterprises and a transport–agnostic wide area network that facilitates the integration of disparate network connections (IP-VPN, Broadband, LTE) into a single virtual network that can be easily operated, managed and deployed from a centralized, single point-of-control.
- Increased Site and Application Resiliency: Versa combines the consistent performance of a traditional IP-VPN with an agile secure SD-WAN. Corporate and centralized locations will benefit from reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity provided by a Global MPLS/IP-VPN infrastructure coupled with the flexibility for customers to bring their own access or leverage direct Internet access (DIA) as well. 
- Reduced Costs: Customers can maximize the utilization of current bandwidth capacities by running all connectivity links in an active-active mode. As bandwidth requirements soar, organizations can adopt best-of-breed approaches like dedicated enterprise-grade connectivity for mission-critical applications and secure broadband for peripheral applications.
