Gigamon announces multi-purpose visibility fabric node for Big Data traffic intelligence
SYDNEY, April 1, 2014 – Gigamon® Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), a leader in traffic visibility solutions with the innovative Unified Visibility Fabric™, today announced the forthcoming release of the GigaVUE-HC2 fabric node for the Services Layer of the Visibility Fabric architecture.
The GigaVUE-HC2 combines the elasticity of compute with the speed and performance needed to address the ever-changing monitoring and security landscape. Security, performance and customer experience monitoring are rapidly transforming due to the increasing adoption of cloud, consumerisation of IT, mobility and the evolution of the Internet of Things. These trends are creating the need for sophisticated, stateful and intelligent traffic correlation, as well as the need to accomplish everything at unprecedented speeds.
“The GigaVUE-HC2 provides a versatile multi-purpose platform that addresses the needs of a broad variety of tools. Its performance and GigaSMART intelligence addresses not only the monitoring needs of today, but scales to meet the needs of the future,” said Shehzad Merchant, Chief Strategy Officer at Gigamon. “Big Data traffic intelligence requires compute elasticity to meet the dynamic needs of today’s organisations. Gigamon’s architecture supports distributed intelligence, centralised intelligence, or a hybrid of the two and ensures that multiple H-Series platforms can be managed as a single virtual chassis in a cluster. GigaVUE-HC2 offers traffic intelligence at the right place in the network for the right price.”
The GigaVUE-HC2 is a modular platform that combines multiple external functions such as compute for stateful and intelligent traffic correlation, secure in-band TAPs to prevent unauthorised access to traffic data, and sophisticated filtering, replication and aggregation, all in a single, compact modular form factor thereby eliminating the need for service chaining multiple external nodes.
The GigaVUE-HC2 will launch with seven optional modules including 10Gb and 40Gb modules, GigaSMART intelligence as well as copper and fibre TAPs. The optional GigaSMART capabilities include packet slicing, masking, source port labelling, tunnelling, header stripping and Layer 7 load balancing. Visibility Fabric Applications provide stateful packet correlation capabilities that enable de-duplication, provide session awareness for enhanced visibility, insight and control over data traffic flows, as well as the ability to summarise and generate NetFlow statistics from incoming traffic streams.
“The new GigaVUE-HC2 demonstrates Gigamon’s commitment to provide current and future customers with innovative Visibility Fabric platforms and solutions,” said Bob Laliberte, Sr. Analyst with ESG.
“The combination of a port dense 2RU footprint, GigaSMART capabilities and a full suite of applications - that deliver network tapping, traffic aggregation, de-duplication, and NetFlow generation - will enable organisations to maximise functionality and versatility, while minimising its data centre footprint.”
The GigaVUE-HC2 will be showcased at Interop Las Vegas at the Gigamon booth #738. Also found at the Gigamon booth will be a demonstration of Gigamon’s NetFlow application, which has been recognised as a Best of Interop Finalist. About the Visibility Fabric architecture
At Gigamon we realised that delivering the visibility essential to manage, analyse and secure the complex system that is the IT infrastructure requires a new approach. With millions of traffic flows across thousands of endpoints, visibility needs to be pervasive, intelligent and dynamic. Using our patented, unique technology, we created an innovative new approach for delivering this visibility called the Visibility Fabric architecture. This new approach is intelligent and versatile in its ability to enable visibility into the network. For more information, visit http://www.gigamon.com/visibility-fabric-architecture. About Gigamon
