Data visibility is a critical capability of today’s networks whether in the Enterprise or Service Provider networks, for applications and services delivered using physical and virtual infrastructure. Traditional monitoring methods of SPAN/mirror ports or physical TAPs are not capable of providing visibility for today’s virtual infrastructure environments.
Meanwhile, the need for visibility and related challenges are evident for applications such as
Network services: Network carriers are facing a deluge of traffic in their networks as traffic from video based applications are exponentially growing thanks to increasing use of mobile devices. Also, as carriers transition to support dynamic networks based SDN and NFV based architectures, they need equally capable tools for monitoring and diagnostics.
Enterprise: IT teams require real-time insights of their network for effective management and performance monitoring.
Security: Despite the sophistication and advancements of current network security solutions, intrusions and attacks continue to occur.
Compliance: Effective and timely management of compliance aspects in areas such as finance & accounting, health etc.
With Veryx vTAP, complete visibility of inter-VM/VNF traffic is provided and the aforementioned challenges can be addressed.
