GigaVUE Cloud and Virtual Nodes

Cloud traffic acquisition, aggregation, optimization and distribution

Extend Visibility to Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud Environments

GigaVUE® Cloud Suite enables security and monitoring tools to gain full network visibility across virtualized private, public and hybrid cloud environments. Each of the various platforms are composed of G-vTAP virtual TAPs, GigaVUE V Series visibility nodes and the GigaVUE-FM fabric manager. Taken together, these make up a holistic visibility and visibility and analytics fabric solution that eliminates network blind spots as you move workloads to the cloud, thereby significantly reducing security and non-compliance risks.

GigaVUE Cloud Suite can:

  • Acquire all workload traffic of interest, including within VMs and Containers
  • Aggregate private and public cloud traffic for a single view into your entire hybrid infrastructure and supports backhauling to on-premise tools
  • Optimize traffic using GigaSMART® applications to improve tool efficiency and effectiveness
  • Manage dynamic workloads without manual intervention
  • Simply and automatically instantiate, configure and monitor the virtual components with integration into the cloud orchestration solutions

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
