Gigamon Bolsters Unified Visibility Fabric Architecture with New Offerings
May 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Gigamon, a provider of network traffic visibility solutions, announced the availability of a new Visibility Fabric node, the GigaVUE-HB1 for branch offices and the implementation of a new Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Gigamon's H Series product line, as well as a proof-of-concept application called FlowVUE which will offer flow-based correlation services.
According to a release, Gigamon recently announced a strategy to develop a unified Visibility Fabric architecture that would ultimately deliver orchestrated visibility across physical, virtual and software-defined networks (SDN). These additions to the Gigamon portfolio further that strategy by extending the reach of the Visibility Fabric architecture to remote locations and providing ease of use and configurability for simplified management and provisioning of monitoring policies. FlowVUE, upon release, will help tame big data and allow for the ability to intelligently correlate network traffic for tool optimization.
"Gigamon recently announced a vision for a Unified Visibility Fabric architecture that builds on the principles of SDN that will deliver centralized and programmable visibility services across physical, virtual and software-defined networks," said Huy Nguyen, Sr. Director of Product Management at Gigamon. "These three new additions were developed with those goals in mind and join our current portfolio in the context of Gigamon's recently articulated four-layer architecture to offer orchestrated, centralized and policy-driven Visibility as a Service."
The GigaVUE-HB1 Visibility Fabric node builds on Gigamon's Unified Visibility Fabric architecture within the Services Layer and comes with GigaSMART technology. GigaSMART offers the ability to normalize traffic and perform VXLAN decapsulation for monitoring virtualized network overlays, ERSPAN termination, packet de-duplication, packet masking and packet slicing, among others. The GigaVUE-HB1 extends Gigamon's pervasive and intelligent visibility and packet modification into a customer's remote sites and enables remote network monitoring by tunneling monitored data back to a central site for tool centralization and consolidation through a unified Visibility Fabric architecture, the company said.
"By offering network traffic optimization, normalization and tunneling in a smaller form factor, Gigamon is enabling enterprises with remote or branch offices to abstract data from those remote office networks, prepare that traffic and return it to a centralized data center for analysis," said Bob Laliberte of the Enterprise Strategy Group. "The addition of FlowVUE in the Applications Layer will further enhance data center efficiency by offering flow-based correlation services that will help to ensure optimal tool utilization and performance. Gigamon's unified architecture and rapid innovation delivery empowers its customers to achieve greater levels of visibility and control for highly dynamic network environments."
