What is VMware Edge Network Intelligence?
VMware Edge Network Intelligence is a vendor-agnostic artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps) solution that centered on enterprise edge and aims to ensures end user and internet of things (IoT) client performance, security, and self-healing via wireless and wired LAN, SDWAN and secure access service edge (SASE).
How does VMware Edge Network Intelligence work?
VMware Edge Network Intelligence applies machine learning algorithm and modern big data analytics to compute high amount of data obtained from various resources (network, device and applications). This enables automatic discovery of end user and IoT devices which allows VMware Edge Network Intelligence to understand each interaction of single clients and then, monitors for deviations. As a results, operations teams can have actionable insights for remediation.
Component of VMware Edge Network Intelligence
Edge Network Intelligence consists of three components:
1. Cloud Analytics Engine/Private Cloud Appliance
This component can either be hosted on cloud (Cloud Analytics Engine) or deployed on-premise (Private Cloud Appliance) and functions to carry out auto-discovery and establish baseline automatically, monitoring for deviations, analysing historical trends with the output shared via the UI or integration through platform API.
2. Crawler/Analytics Edge
This component gathers data from various sources and is deployed on-premise in the branch, campus, or data center.
3. Client App
This component is built as a self-help tool for end users to identify the of application slowdown issues, and as a remote diagnostic tool for enterprise administrators to baseline and diagnose remote issues. It is an application with simple simple user interface that helps detect remote users’ issues in accessing applications whether due to the local Wi-Fi, broadband service, VPN connectivity or the application providers.
