This next-generation network monitoring tool is a comprehensive and highly scalable software gateway that enables easy management of software-defined networks (SDN) along with traditional infrastructure for a familiar operational user experience and continued use of standard network operating procedures.
SDN enables cloud networks to expand and contract dynamically based on application demand and makes traditional network monitoring much more challenging. The CA Virtual Network Assurance network monitoring tool captures the dynamic relationships introduced by modern automated networks in real-time and visualizes these physical and logical dependencies in application and service chain build block views enabling operational insight into how all elements of a new modern network affect business service integrity.
The solution provides:
Unified Network Performance Monitoring that enables seamless management of traditional and advanced technologies like cloud, SDN and network functions virtualization (NFV) in a one-dashboard experience
Comprehensive coverage. Broad network monitoring tool capabilities to acquire, analyze and present metrics on devices, flows and applications across traditional, SDN and cloud end points to improve operational visibility.
Support for Cisco ACI and software-defined data centers. Visualize the new network abstraction via discovery and collection of your Cisco ACI deployments, along with traditional infrastructure.
Big-data architecture. This next-generation network monitoring tool supports four million items at 500,000 metrics per second to reliably meet the expanding monitoring needs of modern network architectures.
Integrated metrics. A network monitoring tool with rich, open API dashboards and visualizations of dynamic SDN relationships along with building-block views for an intuitive and guided network operations experience.
