cPacket Networks, a provider of network performance monitoring and packet broker solutions headquartered in Silicon Valley, has launched cClear-V – a virtualized version of its cClear network performance dashboard and distributed data collectors. “Rapidly” deployable throughout the distributed corporate network, cClear-V would provide a single pane of glass management, without the need for dedicated server hardware.
As a virtualized version of cClear, cClear-V can be flexibly deployed through standard Hypervisor virtual machines (VMs) or Docker containers, allowing real-time acquisition of key performance indicators from cPacket’s cVu traffic sensors on the network. Furthermore, cClear-V would scale seamlessly as additional monitoring points are created. cClear-V’s distributed architecture would allow data to be collected where it’s needed, reducing unnecessary data transfers across the management network.
“Our customers have been asking us for virtualized distributed management solution that scales, as well as our cVu, does for network traffic sensing,” said Brendan O’Flaherty, CEO of cPacket Networks. “cClear-V is the ideal solution. With cClear-V, network operators can deploy the functionality they need and at network locations where it’s needed. No other management console combines the complete visualization and management of all packet brokers, packet capture devices and traffic sensors on a network.”
cPacket’s cStor Arrays
cPacket’s product architecture, augmented by integral analytics, would make it ideal for troubleshooting network issues, analyzing network performance to anticipate future issues and capacity planning.
With cClear-V, IT and networking personnel would be able to take advantage of a single, integrated workflow that allows for moving between capturing network behavioral information and capturing packets for analysis by cPacket’s cStor arrays – reducing mean time to repair (MTTR) when monitoring and troubleshooting issues on the network.
cClear-V is a key component of cPacket’s management suite, which enables unified command and control of all cPacket devices – from packet brokers to packet capture tools, and for speeds of 1Gbps through 100Gbps. cClear-V will be available in the third quarter of 2018.
