  • 3. 3 Copyright © 2013(Re)defining Network Visibility InfrastructureDelivering visibility as the combination of:– Data Aggregation AND Intelligent Network Recording layers– Port densities and scales from small to massive cloud-scaleVisibility infrastructure gives organizations:– Ability to feed monitoring tools with feeds of any network traffic to 100Gbps– Network history to help operational teams resolve issues quickly+EndaceProbe
  • 4. 4 Copyright © 2013Why Do We Care About Visibility?Cost of downtime measured in millions of dollars per hourVisibility is key to effective DETECTION and RESOLUTIONThe more critical the network, the more visibility is required– Broadcasters, utilities, telcos, service providers…But not ALL visibility is about DETECTION and RESOLUTION:– Compliance– Containment– Policy enforcement– Network optimization– Network planning
  • 5. 5 Copyright © 2013Second Generation Visibility – A History LessonNothing new about the need to see what’s going onSPAN, patch-panels, mirroring have existed since dawn of timeMost organizations have some kind of sniffers, somewhere…Reactive problem solving was the norm… the IT worldhas changed, we saidgoodbye to our crash carts!
