SILICON VALLEY, Calif. -- Gigamon® (NYSE: GIMO), a leader in network traffic visibility solutions with the innovative Visibility Fabric™ architecture, announced today enhancements to its GigaVUE-VM Visibility Fabric node to support Cisco and VMware virtualized environments. The GigaVUE-VM 2.0 release includes support for Cisco’s Nexus 1000V virtual switch and seamless visibility for vMotion events for today’s agile virtual environments. "Virtualization is creating blind spots, or invisible networks, within server infrastructures making it difficult to secure the network traffic, diagnose problems, and analyze performance,” said Christian Renaud, Senior Analyst with 451 Research. “There are a number of end users who have deployed the Cisco Nexus 1000V within their VMware virtual infrastructures to help ensure that consistent network policy is enforced throughout the data center. It makes sense for Gigamon to add support for these customers with their latest release. Their support for vMotion is exciting as well because without the ability to automatically migrate the monitoring policies with vMotion, visibility would be lost once the vMotion occurs and would require manual reconciliation and that would be a nightmare to manage in agile virtual infrastructures." The goal of the Gigamon Unified Visibility Fabric architecture is to deliver pervasive visibility and simplified management and provisioning of monitoring policies across all network topologies including physical, virtual and software-defined networks (SDN). The GigaVUE-VM exposes inter-VM traffic flowing in a physical host and across physical hosts with intelligent filtering and forwarding capabilities for monitoring and troubleshooting virtual environments. The addition of GigaVUE-VM 2.0 expands Gigamon’s pervasive visibility into VMware virtual infrastructures that utilize the Cisco Nexus 1000V distributed virtual switch. The 2.0 update also provides automatic re-configuration of the Visibility Fabric architecture by migrating monitoring policies to maintain continuous visibility when a vMotion event occurs.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
