PARIS -- Qosmos, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, virtualized and in Software Defined Networking (SDN) architectures, today announced the new Qosmos Service Aware Module (SAM), which adds intelligence and service awareness to virtual switches. Virtual switch developers benefit from rapid time-to-market for solutions requiring built-in application intelligence, while telcos and enterprises profit from optimized network services and reduced infrastructure costs.
The virtual switch (or vSwitch) plays a critical role in next generation data center networks. It is a software application that allows virtual machines (VMs) to communicate with each other and with the physical network.
Qosmos SAM is integrated with a vSwitch to provide detailed, real-time traffic intelligence and enable service-awareness at the infrastructure level. It is based on Qosmos’ flagship product ixEngine, which is already established as the de facto industry-standard DPI engine for developers of telecoms and enterprise solutions. The new module classifies flows at the hypervisor level and the resulting protocol information and metadata are either used directly by the virtual switch or passed on to guest applications.
