GigaVUE Cloud Suite for OpenStack

Intelligent network traffic visibility for OpenStack private clouds

Acquire, Optimize and Distribute Selected Traffic to Security and Monitoring Tools

Service providers and enterprises are increasingly adopting virtualized data centers with OpenStack. These environments make it challenging for security and monitoring tools to access all traffic, so they can discover and respond to threats and track performance.

GigaVUE® Cloud Suite for OpenStack is an intelligent network traffic visibility solution that acquires, optimizes and distributes the right traffic to the right tools. Eliminates blind spots caused by network function virtualization (NFV) and more:

  • Reduce complexity through a single platform for visibility across the entire IT environment.
  • Simplify traffic orchestration through use of monitoring sessions
  • Boost ROI by reusing existing tools across your entire infrastructure
  • Leverage tunnel as a source methods to acquire traffic from devices and proxies including Nüage and Palo Alto Networks
  • Increase architectural flexibility by choosing from multiple tunnel options including VXLAN and IPv6

Network Visibility in OpenStack Environment

With GigaVUE Cloud Suite for OpenStack architects can accelerate onboarding applications and their revenue-generating value-added services. The solution integrates with OpenStack APIs to automatically discover the cloud infrastructure, deploy visibility nodes that collect and aggregate the acquired traffic and applies intelligence prior to sending selected traffic to security and monitoring tools. The suite includes:

  • Two G-vTAP options:
    • G-vTAP Module is an agent-like module deployed on the OpenStack VM instances.
    • G-vTAP VM is a VM deployed as an OpenStack VM instance and utilizes OVS mirroring.
  • GigaVUE V Series is a visibility node in OpenStack that aggregate selected traffic, processes GigaSMART applications such as masking, slicing and packet deduplication and distributes with load balancing support to either tools or HC appliances for further processing.
  • GigaVUE-FM provides orchestration and management, via a single GUI across your entire network.
