GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix

Network and application visibility for hyperconverged private clouds.

Secure and Optimize Your Nutanix Environment

GigaVUE® Cloud Suite for Nutanix provides in-depth visibility to enhance tool effectiveness, optimize performance and accelerate troubleshooting of private cloud. You can aggregate and optimize traffic from your Nutanix deployments, with automated visibility fabric installation and centralized control, allowing the right traffic to be forwarded to the right tools.

Nutanix Prism can be commanded to instantiate Gigamon G-vTAP VMs and monitor and control operations. Also, you can direct compute VMs to copy micro-segment traffic and send to visibility nodes.

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix enables you to:

  • Gain network and application visibility for virtual workloads in Nutanix AHV-powered clouds
  • Take advantage of Nutanix Prism and Flow integration to automate provisioning and configuration of Gigamon components
  • Support granular traffic selection within micro-segmented security groups using Nutanix Prism and GigaVUE Fabric Manager
  • Generate app-aware NetFlow/IPFIX metadata attributes to feed SIEMS and other tools for contextual data insights.
