Gigamon Issues GigaVUE Software Update
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Gigamon (NYSE: GIMO), a leader in network traffic visibility solutions with the innovative Visibility Fabricô architecture, announced today forthcoming enhancements to its GigaVUE-VM Visibility Fabric node and GigaVUE-FM Fabric Manager. Virtualization has led to increased deployment of distributed applications, dramatically increasing the need for visibility at the Virtual Machine level. These concerns are addressed with the GigaVUE-VM 2.2 software update, which increases the scale of virtual visibility. The GigaVUE-FM 2.2 update introduces a "single pane of glass" graphical user interface (GUI), adding powerful configuration management capabilities to its current asset management capabilities for an intuitive management experience spanning physical and virtual Fabric Nodes across the Unified Visibility Fabric.
"Private enterprise cloud environments utilize a variety of virtual switch technologies. With the virtual network potentially extending across multiple data centers, significant challenges arise when monitoring the health, performance and security of those environments." said Ananda Rajagopal, VP of Product Management at Gigamon. "Our new software enhancements address those needs through a single pane of glass for configuration and management, and provides pervasive visibility in a private cloud deployment."
Monitoring, analytic and security tools have been providing insight for traffic analysis between network end points on the physical wire since their inception. However, the rise in distributed application architectures and API-based communication, the volume of app interactions has increased dramatically. Compounding the challenge of delivering pervasive visibility is the fact that these east-west application interactions take place on an increasingly virtualized infrastructure, causing the virtual network traffic to remain completely hidden from tools on the physical wire. Visibility to virtual network traffic is essential for enterprises to maintain ROI on their monitoring, analytic and security tools, and ensure the continued use and benefits of their existing tool investments.
