SkyLIGHT™ PVX Product Family

A Fully Integrated Solution for Network and Application Performance Management

SkyLIGHT™ PVX analyzes network health and application performance in real time. Highly scalable and fully integrated, SkyLIGHT PVX provides wire data analytics for 360° visibility of all IT infrastructure, even for large environments with tens of thousands of users. Taking advantage of latest-generation stream analytics, SkyLIGHT PVX keeps track of every network flow and application transaction at scale.

Accedian (Performance Vision) was recognized for the first time in Gartner’s 2018 Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) Magic Quadrant Report.[1]  

SkyLIGHT PVX offers a new approach to NPM / APM with exceptional ease of use and universal coverage over physical, virtual, and SDN infrastructure, complemented by real-time transaction-level visibility into the real-user experience.

SkyLIGHT PVX drastically reduces mean time to resolution (MTTR) for critical business incidents via a single interface for network-wide analysis. Thanks to key performance indicators monitored across all network traffic and application transactions, IT professionals can take appropriate action to proactively keep network and application services up and running for end-users or customers.

A Unified Solution for Every Need

SkyLIGHT PVX’s advanced network and application performance monitoring capabilities are available in a range of hardware or software appliances that fit any type of IT architecture: classic, virtual, software-defined, or cloud-based data centers.

SkyLIGHT PVX scales from point deployments to multinational network coverage, with appliances available in the following formats:

  • Micro / Mobile / Express
    Lightweight, self-contained, high-performance SkyLIGHT PVX analyzers that are ideal for monitoring remote locations with limited on-site infrastructure. Ideal for quick application and network performance audits or troubleshooting sessions.
  • Site
    Site appliances are ideal for monitoring the performance of remote branches or small data centers. Traffic access options include SkyLIGHT PVX capture appliances running on physical or virtualized infrastructure locally, or the SkyLIGHT FBX virtualized packet broker that can remotely relay traffic from any point of interest to a centralized PVX datastore.
  • Datacenter
    Designed for large data centers, corporate offices or cloud deployments, SkyLIGHT PVX can be deployed at scale with a mix of physical, virtual, and cloud capture appliances delivering wire data analytics to a centralized datastore, ensuring full coverage over hybrid infrastructures including software defined networks, IaaS, and SaaS applications.

A single SkyLIGHT PVX datastore appliance, which may also perform traffic capture, centrally stores results and provides a single interface for data visualization, reporting, alerting, stream analytics, and capture appliance management. It also acts as an interface to other systems via its open API.
