Anue Tests 10G
AUSTIN, Texas -- Anue Systems, the leader in network visibility solutions, today announced the latest addition to the company's Tool Aggregation product family: the Anue 5236 Tool Aggregator. This new product significantly streamlines the deployment and use of multiple network monitoring tools in data centers with 10G and 1G networks.
The Anue 5236 was designed to meet the monitoring needs of today's most advanced network infrastructures, particularly those networks which have been upgraded to 10G. The Anue Tool Aggregator enables companies with 10G networks to cost effectively monitor those networks with existing 1G tools. Similar to the Anue 5204 model, which provides 24 1G ports and four 10G ports for connecting network access points to tools, the 5236 offers a total of 24 10G ports and four 1G ports.
The Anue 5200 Series Tool Aggregator directly addresses a key challenge facing Fortune 2000 data centers -- namely the escalating need to manage and monitor enterprise networks with an ever increasing number of tools, including application monitors, security devices, protocol analyzers, and data recorders. Anue Tool Aggregators help companies quickly and effortlessly deploy network tools by allowing multiple devices to simultaneously share scarce SPAN ports. Additionally, the Anue family of products can aggregate traffic from multiple SPAN ports to a single tool to cost effectively increase monitoring coverage.
"As 10G equipment costs have come down and the need for additional bandwidth has increased due to data center consolidation, virtualization technologies and even convergence with storage networks, many companies have made the switch to 10G. Those companies have experienced the challenges of attempting to cost effectively monitor these new networks, so they can ensure adequate application performance levels and the required security demanded by the business," said Bob Laliberte, analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "This challenge will be even more important in 2009 as IT budgets tighten. The Anue 5236 provides companies a valuable solution to monitor 10G networks by aggregating and filtering traffic so those networks can be monitored by existing 1G tools."
