A New Visibility Architecture for Managing 10G, 40G and 100G Networks
Enterprise Management Associates, March 2012, Pages: 5
Convergence is happening across IT, within the infrastructure, in the endpoint, between apps and communications, and more. The list goes on and even includes most aspects of infrastructure and security management, except when it comes to visibility tools. Application-aware packet inspection tools are an essential element in network and security operations and are growing in popularity and number because they deliver highly granular visibility. And yet, each time one of these systems is deployed, it requires another access point, more rack space, and in most cases yet another stream-to-disk packet storage array. The capital and operational costs of this status quo approach continues to mount, while a major technical hurdle looms.
The mainstream adoption of 10G Ethernet, with even faster 40G and 100G networks not far behind, is causing packet analysis products to either wilt under pressure or require expensive upgrades and retrofits. This EMA whitepaper examines how convergence can and should be applied to packet-based monitoring, and further considers how Endace Systems has addressed this challenge and brought a unique, scalable and compelling alternative approach to bear.
