Savvius announced Omnipliance Ultra to help IT professionals to quickly identify and solve network performance problems and locate network security issues.
Omnipliance Ultra network appliances include Savvius Spotlight, a new technology that enables visibility into the specific information needed to significantly reduce the Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR) of network issues.
Available in new Savvius Omnipliance Ultra models T300, M200, and C100, Savvius Spotlight is also available in the Savvius Spotlight Appliance, a dedicated high-performance standalone 1U appliance.
Savvius Spotlight takes advantage of increases in compute capability available in Omnipliance Ultra and the Savvius Spotlight Appliance to apply packet-based expert analysis to every single flow in the monitored traffic, even when hundreds of thousands of flows are being created each second. Omnipliance Ultra and the Savvius Spotlight Appliance have a rich variety of means, both automated and manual, to filter the results to those specific flows and nodes that the network operator needs or wants to see. If the user wishes to drill down further, a single click integrates packet-level forensics.
"The traditional network monitoring concept of 'capture, store, retrieve, and display' just doesn't scale to today's fast networks, leaving those responsible for network performance with ambiguous data that requires tedious deciphering and interpretation," said Larry Zulch, President and CEO of Savvius, Inc. "We started by asking our customers what they wanted to know about their network, even if current products couldn't supply it. Our team came up with innovative approaches to supply the information they desired on fast networks in real time, and then developed a beautiful and functional user experience to make it useful. The result is Savvius Spotlight, available in Omnipliance Ultra and the Savvius Spotlight Appliance."
The Savvius Spotlight technology specifically identifies the poorest-performing aspects of a network by assembling two-way flows and evaluating each one for TCP quality, VoIP quality, application latency, network latency, and more. Savvius Spotlight allows IT teams to intuitively map and navigate the network, enabling them to zoom in on specific segments or poor-performing servers or nodes with actionable details for faster mean time to resolution. Integrated continuous packet capture for one-click packet-level forensics (available on Savvius Omnipliance Ultra) and the ability to export streaming analytics to Elasticsearch complement the Savvius Spotlight technology.
Savvius Spotlight technology has applications for network security as well. Savvius Spotlight can sift through millions of flows in real time to identify flows which violate IT policies or have characteristics deemed suspicious or worth investigating.
Key Features of Savvius Spotlight:
- Proactively display worst-ranked flows from network-wide down to an individual server
- Navigate fluidly in real time up to 20 Gbps of network traffic
- Set Alert thresholds by characteristic and by network segment
- Get instant visibility into traffic to or from any IP address
- Focus on flows of greatest interest by defining Filters
- View worst flows by all or individual metrics, flow counts, and flow list on browser-based interface
- Instantly zoom into trouble spots
- Single-click "Investigate" button for packet-level forensic investigations (Omnipliance Ultra)
- Stream analytics to Elasticsearch engine with custom Kibana dashboards
- Network management visibility and detailed packet-level evidence for network security investigations
- All current-generation Omnipliance network performance appliances can be upgraded to Omnipliance Ultra
Omnipliance Ultra and the Savvius Spotlight Appliance will be available in Q3, 2017.
