In a bit to provide effective solutions for consistent network visibility for companies, data centers and other service providers, Gigamon (News - Alert), a provider of traffic visibility fabric solutions, has announced the next generation of its Control Card for the H Series GigaVUE Traffic Visibility Fabric Nodes.
The next generation of Control Card can increase performance up to 2.56Tb of throughput. The Control Card offers the next level of capacity for the Visibility Fabric—now scaling up to eight GigaVUE H Series chassis within a single virtual cluster.
The Control Card can work very well with both the modular eight-slot GigaVUE-HD8 and the smaller four-slot GigaVUE-HD4 chassis. It supports all existing GigaVUE H Series line cards and enhances the GigaVUE H Series by providing the backplane capacity with 320Gb of non-blocking, cross-blade throughput providing 2.56 Terabit performance in the GigaVUE-HD8.
Paul Hooper, vice president of Marketing at Gigamon said in a statement, “Mobile service operators and providers, cloud service providers, and finance and healthcare organizations are experiencing significant traffic growth resulting in the demand for greater scalability, agility, and performance of infrastructure management, monitoring and security solutions, “With our new Control Card, we continue to deliver Visibility Fabric solutions to address their needs. Whether organizations are running high-density 10Gb, or exploring 40Gb or 100Gb solutions, we provide an industry leading solution to enable organizations that are seeking a new and improved approach to operate increasingly complex environments.”
The new card allows users to intelligently combine up to eight chassis together—providing a combined capacity exceeding two thousand 10 Gigabit ports—all within a single addressable Visibility Fabric.
Existing customers have the option to purchase this card to upgrade their existing chassis with a simple field replacement. On the other hand, new customers can select the control card and capacity that best meets their traffic visibility requirements.
