Extend Visibility to Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud

Part of Gigamon Hawk deep observability pipeline for hybrid cloud, GigaVUE® Cloud Suite provides security and monitoring tools full network visibility across private, public and hybrid cloud environments, consisting of:

  • Virtual TAPs (G-vTAP Module and UCT) functions that acquire workload traffic to/from VMs and containers. 
  • Virtual visibility nodes (GigaVUE V Series) function that brokers, optimizes, transforms and distributes traffic to the various tools.
  • Fabric manager (GigaVUE-FM) product that dynamically tracks workloads, automatically instantiates, configures and monitors the Cloud Suite functions, and integrates into cloud orchestration solutions.

Together, these eliminate blind spots as you move workloads to and within the cloud, significantly reducing security and non-compliance risks.

GigaVUE V Series Virtual Visibility Nodes

As the central traffic handling function of GigaVUE Cloud Suite, GigaVUE V Series provides a range of capabilities for real-time handling and processing of workload communication traffic within both private and public clouds:

 

Supported Cloud Infrastructures

GigaVUE V Series, within GigaVUE Cloud Suite, supports acquisition and processing of traffic from multiple cloud infrastructures:

  • Public Cloud; AWS, AWS Outposts, AWS EKS, Azure, Azure AKS, and Google Cloud
  • Private Cloud; Kubernetes, Nutanix, OpenStack, Red Hat OpenShift, VMware ESXi/NSX-T/Tanzu/Telco Cloud
This delivers consistent insight into information-in-motion across your hybrid network.
  • Gain seamless control, coverage and performance
  • Deliver only relevant traffic streams and data to your tools
  • Filter and decrypt traffic flows before they reach yours tools
  • Obfuscate private and sensitive data before sending to your tools
  • Transform the traffic into data consumable by observability tools

GigaVUE Public Cloud Features

Gigamon offers comprehensive solutions for AWS and Azure environments that acquire, aggregate, optimize and distribute traffic from cloud environments with:

  • G-vTAP Module, which is a lightweight agent that resides within VMs (containerized or not) to obtain all pertinent workload traffic, pre-filter flows and tunnel the traffic to a visibility node
  • GigaVUE V Series visibility nodes for traffic aggregation, replication, filtering, load-balancing and high-performance processing to optimize traffic via GigaSMART applications, including packet deduplication, slicing and payload masking to dramatically extend the value of security and monitoring tools. Traffic can also be transformed using NetFlow/IPFIX and metadata generation to feed non-packet based tools
  • Centralized Management for managing virtual TAPs and visibility nodes and configuring traffic forwarding using GigaVUE-FM
  • Automatic Target Selection for extracting traffic from any workload without the need to specify VPCs/vNETs/projects
  • Also supports other cloud environments, such as GCP, OCI, etc.

GigaVUE Private Cloud Features

Gigamon offers solutions for private and hybrid cloud infrastructures based on Kubernetes, Nutanix, OpenStack and VMware. They acquire, aggregate, optimize and distribute traffic to security and monitoring tools within the cloud. Key attributes include:

  • G-vTAP VM, which is an agentless instance that resides on each hypervisor to obtain all pertinent workload traffic, pre-filter flows, slice packets and tunnel the traffic to a visibility node
  • G-vTAP Container, which is a lightweight agent that resides within Container pods to obtain all pertinent workload traffic, pre-filter flows and tunnel the traffic to a visibility node
  • GigaVUE V Series visibility nodes for traffic aggregation, replication, filtering, load-balancing and high-performance processing to optimize traffic via GigaSMART applications, including packet deduplication, slicing, payload masking, and header transformation
  • Centralized Management for managing virtual TAPs and visibility nodes and configuring traffic forwarding using GigaVUE-FM
  • Automated Visibility to automatically associate visibility policies as workloads spin up or down, ensuring continuous visibility and integrity of monitoring policies as workloads migrate across host machines
