CloudLens™ platform is the start of a complete transformation for visibility.

CloudLens™ platform is the start of a complete transformation for visibility.

While the benefits of cloud deployments are many, accessing and monitoring virtual traffic is a challenge. Without granular access to virtual traffic, you may suffer from blind spots in your network that compromise application performance or security.

The CloudLens platform provides unprecedented visibility across all your cloud environments - public, private, and hybrid clouds. The platform will provide the framework to scale virtual taps and data filtering to meet the elastic demands cloud customers expect.


Public Clouds
Hyperscale deployments are characterized by continuous configuration changes based on demand. While resource pooling and elastic scale are part of the cloud value proposition, the ability to monitor virtual traffic flows at the same scale has been limited.

Ixia´s CloudLens platform provides the visibility framework for the elastic demands cloud customers expect in a multi-tenant self-serve model. With the CloudLens platform, deploying monitoring taps occurs in a matter of minutes, not hours or days.

The powerful embedded automation capabilities of the CloudLens platform will enable virtual taps and analysis tools to automatically shift to changes in demand or failures without the need for operator in-the-loop actions.

The CloudLens platform will enable visibility into both North-South and East-West traffic.

Virtualizing the analysis tools directly in the customer´s cloud provides a significant bandwidth saving option to customers who do not want to tunnel all their virtual data back to centralized physical analysis tools.

The CloudLens platform will enable you to dynamically scale your cloud network visibility as you scale your public cloud resources without creating an extra automation and infrastructure management burden.


Private Clouds
Private clouds use a variety of hypervisors in their buildout. The CloudLens platform supports intelligent monitoring of virtual traffic in these environments: OpenStack KVM, VMWare ESXi and NSX, and soon Microsoft Hyper-V. It combines the power of its virtual network taps, packet and application flow filtering, Netflow with advanced application identification and geographic location, SSL decryption, and deduplication to provide unprecedented insight into network traffic in both physical and virtualized environments.

The CloudLens platform offers multiple tapping options and its tunneling options include GRE, VLAN and ERSPAN for the maximum coverage across private cloud deployments.

Hybrid Clouds
Most modern enterprises do not live solely in public or private cloud environments but use a hybrid approach. You want to monitor data in your public cloud resources as much as you do in your private cloud. The CloudLens platform lets you choose whether you want to tunnel virtual data out to a centralized set of tools or leverage virtualized tools inside each cloud.

You choose hybrid resources to give you the maximum flexibility. Choose your monitoring the same way. Maximum flexibility of monitoring options across the widest range of cloud provider options gives your business a transition path from private cloud to public cloud.

Zum Vergrößern bitte anklicken - Virtualization - Produktfoto - Phantom vTap für Hypervisor-basierte virtuelle Netzwerke
The Phantom vTap™ ist eine Softwarelösung für alle führenden Hypervisor (VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer) und ermöglicht Kunden eine 100% Transparenz des virtuellen Netzwerkverkehrs.

The Ixia Phantom vTap™ with TapFlow filtering is a software solution providing crystal-clear visibility into virtual data center network traffic.
The product supports VMware vSphere hypervisors and the KVM virtualization solution for Linux - the only manufacturer in the industry to support a virtual tap for KVM.
The Phantom solution supports VLAN, ERSPAN, and GRE tunneling encapsulation for traffic forwarding.

Phantom Monitoring Solution - Tapping, Filtering, and Forwarding
Security and performance monitoring tools require a complete view of traffic traversing virtual switches. This is typically a challenge as these tools do not have access above the internal virtual switch layer within the hypervisor. The Ixia Phantom vTap monitors all inter-VM traffic and captures only traffic of interest. This capability enables the customer to forward packets to any end-point tool of choice, whether physical or virtual; local or remote, to achieve full visibility and verification across their networks.
The Phantom solution does not require any services or agents to be installed on the virtual machine or application layer. This eliminates the need to sacrifice limited virtual resources such as vCPU, vRAM, and storage. The Phantom vTap is vSwitch agnostic, supporting the vSS, vDS, and third-party virtual switches.

The Ixia Phantom vTap can mirror all traffic within the virtual switch, apply smart TapFlow™ filtering, and send only traffic of interest to any monitoring tools of choice. Virtual traffic is bridged to the physical wire in a GRE- or VLAN-encapsulated tunnel that can be terminated by an Ixia NTO, Ixia xFilter™ or any other capable end-point termination tool of your choosing. The Phantom solution is an all-in-one solution providing unified, centralized management via a "single pane of glass." That means you gain total access and control of your security and performance monitoring needs with the product's easy-to-use web UI.

The Virtual Monitoring Challenge
Enterprises have been utilizing tap solutions for network traffic access for many years. Traffic capture, analysis, replay, and logging are now part of every well-managed network environment. In recent years, the significant shift to virtualization is yielding great efficiency benefits. However, today´s virtualization-based deployments create challenges for network security, compliance, and performance monitoring. This is because Inter-VM traffic is optimized to speed up connections and minimize network use on the physical core network switches. Such optimization can make traffic invisible to physical tools unable to extend easily into the virtual environments.
Costly new virtualization-specific tools plus training can affect the economic benefits and cost-savings of virtualizing. Currently, many tools suffer from limited throughput, hypervisor incompatibility, and excessive resource utilization. Next-generation data centers use virtualization technology to deploy private/public cloud environments on a single physical server or across a clustered group of servers, local and remote. Traditional taps cannot see the traffic between VMs that reside on the same hypervisor (east-west traffic), nor can they "follow" VMs as they are migrated from one host to another. Visibility is further reduced by the complexity of blade servers that have each blade running multiple VMs on a hypervisor.
Traffic running on blade servers shares a common backplane and creates a network blind spot, since the physical network and its attached tools are unable to see traffic above the virtual switch layer or the blade chassis network modules

Advanced network packet broker appliance for high-density, high-throughput network monitoring, packet management, and tunnel decapsulation

The Ixia xFilter™ provides advanced packet brokering, grooming, and optimization capabilities, including packet management, filtering, tunnel decapsulation, and network management. This advanced appliance allows IT managers to offload the burden of compute-intensive functions from monitoring and security tools. The effectiveness of these tools could otherwise be severely impaired by diverting of bandwidth and CPU resources away from their primary functions of security and performance monitoring.

Available as a physical or virtual appliance, the xFilter offers deployment flexibility for operating in today´s dynamic network environments and all areas of the converged data center. The physical appliance delivers high throughput port density (up to 12 10G ports), while the virtual appliance is the only on-demand solution of its kind that can be deployed and configured with a few simple mouse clicks.

Switches belonging to the Ixia Director™ family - including the Ixia Director xStream™ data monitoring switch, and the Ixia xBalancer™ load balancing solution - are optional components. These solutions augment and complement the xFilter´s capabilities. Integrating easily with the xFilter, the Ixia Director family aggregates raw traffic from multiple xFilter devices and switches it quickly and seamlessly to the network´s instrumentation layer tools, which then carry out their respective inspection and monitoring processes. Load-balancing capabilities allow 10GB network sources to be redistributed out to 1GB tools (or vice versa). This capability is particularly useful for supporting converged data centers and addressing hybrid physical, virtual, and cloud-based network topologies. xFilter can also serve as an end point for traffic being extracted from virtual switches by the Ixia Phantom VTap.
