Over 90 percent of enterprises expect to run in a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment for the foreseeable future according to Gateway Research (July 2021, Gigamon). However unless an organization works exclusively with a single cloud vendor and only uses tools native to that specific environment, hybrid or multi-cloud environments can become very complex and costly.
To manage this complexity, and to deliver on the promise of the cloud to improve operational agility and scalability, organizations must have complete, consistent visibility into all the data-in-motion on their hybrid or multi-cloud network.
Gigamon Hawk provides organizations with the capability to access, broker, transform, and analyze packet-level traffic across all of on-premises and cloud environments. GigaVUE Cloud Suite optimizes the process of acquiring traffic using a virtual tap, traffic mirroring or tunneling to capture, filter, and distribute cloud traffic to all of the tools that need to consume this data. It delivers significant benefits in any hybrid or multi-cloud environment, benefits that increase as the scale and complexity of the cloud network increases. This process:
- Eliminates the need for each tool to have its own agent, reducing the compute cycles and bandwidth needed to support these agents
- Reduces the amount of traffic sent to tools while maintaining fidelity using proven Gigamon techniques such as Application Filtering and Application Metadata Intelligence.
- Helps reduce data movement and backhauling costs by ensuring only relevant traffic is moved and, where possible, that this is moved as metadata not in raw form.
