The Versa Operating System (VOS) is a comprehensive and advanced next-generation virtual appliance that brings the power of SD-WAN, SD-Routing and SD-Security into the Microsoft Azure cloud. The Versa Operating System (VOS), offered through the Azure Marketplace, is the same cloud-native software deployed by over 1000 enterprises worldwide for SD-WAN, SD-Routing and SD-Security at the branch. VOS is managed and controlled by Versa Director, the same single-pane-of-glass management software that customers use to manage, operate and deploy Versa in the branch, datacenter and private clouds.
The Versa Operating System (VOS) provides the following capabilities to connect and secure your Azure workloads:
The Versa Operating System (VOS) deployment can be automated through the Azure Cloud Connector from your Versa Director application. This simplifies and accelerates the end-to-end process for the instantiation of the virtual appliance into your Azure environment. The Versa Operating System (VOS) can also be deployed and connect to your Azure Virtual WAN environment, facilitating the use of secure branch-to-branch and branch-to-cloud using the Azure vWAN infrastructure.
The Versa Operating System (VOS) virtual appliance is available through the Azure Marketplace, but customers will need to Bring-your-own-license (BYOL) to instantiate the virtual appliance. Customers will also need to have an existing Versa Director (management), Versa Analytics (visibility) and Versa SD-WAN controller to take full advantage of the capabilities and automation that are available.
