Extreme has closed acquisition of Infovista’s Ipanema SD-WAN business

Ed Meyercord President and Chief Executive Officer Published 15 Sep 2021

We are excited to announce the closing of our acquisition of Ipanema, the cloud-native enterprise SD-WAN business unit of Infovista.  This deal brings a talented team and a rich technology platform that accelerates our  strategy to deliver new cloud-driven software services to support our enterprise customers. These new cloud-managed SD-WAN and security offerings will allow us to further reduce the complexity of operating and managing increasingly distributed networks. By adding these to the ExtremeCloud portfolio, we’ll increase flexibility, capability, and security when connecting locations, applications, and devices, providing the best possible experience to you and to your end users wherever you may be in your journey toward the Infinite Enterprise.

We are proud to be one of the fastest growing cloud-driven networking companies with more than 50,000 customers around the globe, spanning various industries. We’re a pioneer in networking and are the second largest cloud-managed provider in the space. We’ve earned a reputation for high quality and high-performance networks. We are consistently ranked #1 versus our larger competitors for top-notch in-house services and support by independent third-party analysts like Gartner.

I’m incredibly proud of the Extreme and Infovista teams for closing this deal ahead of schedule.   Support for this transaction from our employees, customers and partners around the world has been overwhelmingly positive.  Excitement for our vision and growth potential following this acquisition is unprecedented.

For customers of both Extreme and Infovista’s Ipanema SD-WAN business, I want to assure you that nothing changes as it relates to your access to support and our products, as we continue to produce innovative solutions.

If you have any questions, please visit our “What’s the Deal” page or reach out to your Extreme or Ipanema SD-WAN representative. Thank you for your continued partnership.

There has never been a better time to be a customer of Extreme!
