When a global Telecommunications firm's comprehensive virtualization strategy required visibility into thousands of virtual servers spread across 5 U.S. data centers, they turned to Net Optics and its Phantom solutions.The Telco faced the challenge of supporting numerous VoIP call centers for compliance, security and call quality. This virtualized architecture encompasses more than 150 VMware ESX servers and 1600+ virtual servers. The Telco chose Net Optics Phantom™ HD, working in conjunction with the Net Optics Phantom Virtual Tap, to fulfill this complex demand. Only the Phantom solution delivers the necessary robustness to process extremely high data bandwidths.

In this webinar from Net Optics you will learn:

Presented by Net Optics' Senior Solutions Engineer, David Pham, this webinar will walk through a specific deployment scenario of Net Optics' innovative Phantom Virtual Tap and the recently introduced Phantom HD High-Throughput Tunneling Appliance

  • Agenda 1 • Current Environment • Virtualization Benefits: Reduced 2 TCO and Increased ROI 3 • Monitoring and Security Pitfalls • Overcoming Blind Spots with a 4 Virtual Tap • Transporting Virtual Traffic to 5 Existing Monitoring Tools 3
  • Data Center Infrastructure Call Center Call Center1600+ Physical ServersSpanning 5 Different Call Centers• $480k/annually for Call Center support/warranty costs Call Center for 1600 physical servers Call Center• Server resources are not balanced and many are underutilized/over- utilized 4
  • Problem With Virtualization: Visibility VM1 VM2 VM3 VM4 App App App App Service OS OS OS OS ConsoleVirtual Ethernet Adapters ESX vSphere 4.1 vSwitches Physical Ethernet Adapters ? Production Production Management LAN LAN LAN Analyzer 5
  • Hypervisor Monitoring Challenge ESX Virtual Stack VM1 VM2 VM3 Physical Network Security & Virtualization Creates MonitoringSecurity, Monitoring and Compliance Risks Virtual Switch Analyzer• No visibility into inter-VM traffic, IDS vulnerabilities or threats• Lacks auditing of data passing between virtual servers Physical ESX• Inability to pinpoint resource Server utilization issues 6
  • Alternative Solutions Switch Level Monitoring: enabling monitor/SPAN ports • Degrades overall production network Configure VM to run in Promiscuous Mode • CPU performance degrades due to traffic volume Hypervisor Level Monitoring: enabling Port Mirroring • Network capacity reduced by up to 50% 7
  • Phantom Virtual Tap Solution ESX Virtual Stack with Phantom Installed Phantom Manager VM1 VM2 VM3 (VM) Enables Security, Physical NetworkPerformance Monitoring and Security & Compliance Phantom Virtual Tap Monitoring Tools• 100% visibility of inter-VM traffic Analyzer Virtual Switch• Kernel implementation—no need for SPAN Ports / Promiscuous IDS Mode on Cisco 1000V• Bridges virtual traffic to physical monitoring tools Physical ESX Server 8
