Scalability

Limitless scalability for answering to most demanding enterprise environments

PerformanceVision appliances offer industry-leading real-time performance analysis with carrier-grade scalability. Our solutions can fit in any kind of environment from single to large locations, in hardware, virtual, cloud or software-defined-network infrastructures. Refer to our product range for our appliance specifications.

 

PerformanceVision outperforms the competition with a real-time 360° coverage of all layer 2 to 7 transactions at more than 10Gbps on a single appliance. Some of the competition might claim they achieve higher values. The values we provide aren’t marketing figures, they are measured in production conditions with real-life traffic, running 24 hours a day, with all protocol decodes activated.

PerformanceVision computes all performance metrics in real-time, for all layers, all network and application flows in a single pass. The competition generally either limits the data available to tops or requires a two-steps process with packet collection and post-mortem analysis associated with hardware traffic filtering.

 

This is truly a key difference, because having only tops greatly limits your capacity to analyze what is really going on in your infrastructure, and having to jump to packet details for troubleshooting severely impacts the required amount of time to solve issues.

With PerformanceVision, all performance metrics are computed on the fly for all the network traffic providing you with a complete visibility of your entire infrastructure. You can then drill down to the details of every transaction in just a few clicks. This makes solving issues much easier and faster.

Distributed Environments

In its simplest form, PerformanceVision works with a single standalone autonomous appliance. For more complex infrastructures, for example to cover any kind of IT environment including distributed datacenters or multiple remote locations, you can deploy several PerformanceVision devices spread out over your IT infrastructure, collect their statistics and aggregate them into a central appliance.

‘The “Datastore” designates the central repository, while the “Captures” are the peripheral devices in charge of traffic capture and analysis, their statistics being sent to the “Datastore”.

Users can visualize all their traffic and performance metrics through a single unified graphical interface on the “Datastore“, which also offers a centralized management for all attached “Captures“. Up to 50 “Capture” devices can be connected to a “Datastore” probe.

To ensure limitless scalability for most demanding enterprise environments, you can deploy several “Datastore” appliances, each with up to 50 “Captures” attached.
