Gigamon Expanding Global VisibilityGiven the growth of Big Data caused by BYOD, cloud, and convergence, data centers are upgrading their networks to 10Gb and higher. However many monitoring and analysis tools cannot perform at these speeds. This can lead to a loss of data and vulnerability to security threats.

Gigamon ScalabilityIn many cases a collection of monitoring, analysis, and security tools are attached to each silo of IT, where critical data exists and is accessed through a SPAN/mirror or TAP port. Dispersed tools can be cumbersome to manage, expensive to scale, and does not provide pervasive, end-to-end visibility.

As workloads move to the cloud,
do you have the visibility needed to monitor them?




Challenges

  • Lack of visibility into the cloud and converged infrastructure
  • Lack of visibility into virtualized infrastructure.
  • Performance suffers if not managed
  • Performance suffers
    if not managed
  • Maintaining monitoring of VMs as they migrate across physical hosts
  • Continuously monitor
    VMs as they migrate
    across physical hosts

Gigamon Visibility into the cloudToday's tools are unable to see inside the hybrid or private cloud and converged infrastructures. When a workload migrates off of dedicated servers, visibility into critical data remains a requirement for management, monitoring, and security tools.


Solution

A visibility solution that enables tools to see inside the cloud.


Gigamon Benefits

  • Maintain visiblity as workloads migrate to the cloud

Gigamon End-to-End Visibility for Future ProofingAs mission-critical workloads migrate to virtual servers,
an increasingly large share of network traffic is occurring
between virtual machines (VMs). Visibility into this virtual
switching infrastructure is critical to managing
end-to-end service delivery.


Solution

A solution that understands the importance of traffic, regardless of it's in the clear or encapsulated by tunneling or overlay networking technologies.
