By CIOReview | Wednesday, September 9, 2015

MILPITAS, CA: Viavi Solutions, provider of physical, virtual and hybrid networks, launches GigaStor Software Edition (GSE) for software defined network test and monitoring solutions to manage performance and user experience in virtual and cloud environments. This new software allows networks to capture and save 250 GB and 1 TB of continuous traffic to disk for in depth performance.

GSE provides flexibility of deployment in any Windows environment and provides comprehensive traffic visibility of virtualized server traffic via VM instance. It captures packet data from within the virtual switching infrastructure without pushing the data into physical environment. It can be deployed in any virtual host for the long-term collection and saving of pack level data, which can decode analyze and display. By providing packets for immediate analysis, GSE helps IT teams to troubleshoot with accuracy and speed. Using the GigaStor software, network teams can monitor and analyze all virtualized Data Center traffic on a VMware ESX Host or on 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet links.

"IT teams are wasting a lot of time by only tracking virtual server and resource health. These teams can often miss problems associated with applications within the hypervisor with such narrow vision. With GigaStor Software engineers now have the ability to see in real time and historically how users are experiencing applications and services within the virtual environment, saving time and end-user heartache," says Charles Thompson, Senior Director of Product Management, Viavi Solutions.
