NETSCOUT SYSTEMS has joined Red Hat Connect for Technology Partner Program and has collaborated with Red Hat to achieve Red Hat OpenStack Certification.

The certification demonstrates that NETSCOUT’s virtualized product, vSTREAM, has been tested and certified for use with Red Hat OpenStack Platform to provide consistent performance and compatibility.

Whether it is deployed as an instance in a cloud environment or as a virtual machine on a hypervisor, vSTREAM leverages the full power of NETSCOUT’s patented Adaptive Service Intelligence™ (ASI) technology, including session details and long-term packet recording. By aggregating traffic from multiple sources, including vSCOUT, vSTREAM leverages Smart Data to present real-time views of sessions, conversations, and end-to-end call trace data, as well as perform packet analysis and provide network-wide KPIs.

The Red Hat Connect for Technology Partner Program is designed for commercial organizations that offer plugins, hardware, software, or services for customers to implement cloud infrastructure solutions powered by Red Hat products built on OpenStack technology. The program offers partners an opportunity to gain the necessary expertise with Red Hat’s OpenStack technology through access to Red Hat releases and developer support, as well as key resources needed to test, certify, and publish solutions that make use of Red Hat’s OpenStack offerings. Red Hat's OpenStack ecosystem ranges from independent hardware vendors (IHVs) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners, to independent software vendors (ISVs) and system integrators who have joined the program to provide certified solutions and launch their own OpenStack practices to support customer deployments.

Mike Werner, Senior Director, Global Technology Ecosystems, Red Hat, said:. “To help customers get the most out of Red Hat’s OpenStack offerings and our open hybrid cloud solutions, we work closely with technology companies like NETSCOUT that provide powerful and complementary solutions. We look forward to continued collaboration with NETSCOUT as an important member of Red Hat’s OpenStack ecosystem.”
