      Data Centre Monitoring Challenges
    • Visibility Challenges
      Tools overloaded but underutilised
      Too many tools but too few SPANs and TAPs
      How to monitor 10G networks (not to mention 40/100)?
      How to monitor more of the network?
      Improve ROI and TCO on expensive tool sets
      Stay ahead of troubleshooting
      Get the right traffic to the right tools at the right time!
      Use proactive tools
      Reduce cost and improve ROI

      Automation
    • Process Challenges
      How do you add, change and manage tools today?
      Seamlessly integrate into existing processes
      Process - compliance, security, SLA, reporting …
      Systems – network mgmt, authentication, etc…
      Saves time, money and headaches
      Keep up with growing change and complexity
      Networks, applications, virtualization
      Increasing compliance & security requirements
      Error prone manual processes that do not scale
