Gigamon, a company delivering unified network visibility and analytics across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure, has announced the general availability of its GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix. It’s a validated joint solution for hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) which resides completely in the private cloud.
Gigamon’s GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix would allow enterprise organizations to optimize performance, improve security, minimize appliance overprovisioning and prevent network outages.
“Nutanix views security as an important factor impacting cloud strategies and this requires the ability to monitor and visualize all traffic, including East-West, by directing it to the right tools,” said Prasad Athawale, Senior Director of Business Development at Nutanix. “Gigamon enables our customers to gain this critical visibility to help protect resources and help ensure compliance.”
To sum up, GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix would enable customers to:
- Gain complete visibility – Automatically identify workloads, instantiate and scale GigaVUE G-vTAP VMs for traffic acquisition and configure traffic policies.
- Identify over 3,000 applications – Send the right application traffic to the right tool while generating over 5,000 L4-7 metadata attributes for deeper security and performance related contextual insights.
- Improve tool capacity – Virtual security and monitoring tools are offloaded from burdensome tasks and irrelevant traffic to improve effectiveness, facilitate scaling and minimize costs.
“As organizations accelerate the move to cloud infrastructures to support their remote workers and DX initiatives, the attack surface expands, making full control and visibility over all network traffic crucial,” said Bassam Khan, Vice President of Product Marketing at Gigamon. “Gigamon is proud to include an industry leader such as Nutanix in our ecosystem as we work with our customers to secure, manage and optimize cloud, virtual and physical environments.”
GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix provides an ‘application aware’ network traffic visibility solution that would work seamlessly with Nutanix Prism. Organizations can now automatically acquire Nutanix AHV based workload traffic, optimize the traffic content, and distribute selected traffic to security and monitoring tools, “increasing security, operational efficiency and scale across multiple data center locations.”
