To access traffic traversing the cloud, enterprises are leveraging agents and VMs to copy network traffic. Gigamon G-vTAP modules, lightweight agent deployed on both Linux and Windows workloads in the public cloud, sends mirrored traffic to GigaVUE V Series nodes. For private clouds, Gigamon G-vTAP VM and GigaVUE V Series instances in VMware environments provide the acquisition function.
Once mirrored traffic is received, the GigaVUE V Series nodes leverage the following GigaSMART® applications for traffic optimization:
By sending the right traffic to the right tools, you can stop tool sprawl and overload, ensuring an effective security and network monitoring posture.
As organizations build out their cloud infrastructure, they traditionally are forced to manually configure each compute instance for effective security and monitoring. The GigaVUE V Series leverages Automatic Target Selection, a patented Gigamon technology that automatically selects and delivers traffic that matches configured policies when new cloud instances spin up, saving time and resources.
The GigaVUE V Series further leverages the GigaVUE-FM fabric manager and cloud orchestration tools, such as AWS CloudWatch, VMware NSX-T/vSphere or Ansible, to automatically migrate and scale based on the varying number and locations of compute instances. This ensures dynamic workload visibility and necessary performance levels that are key in ever-changing cloud environments.
