GigaStor serves as the source of packet insights while also storing them for back-in-time access for Observer 3D. Using these packet insights, Observer Apex generates end-user experience scores for every network conversation, providing critical individual and enterprise-wide visibility into IT service health and fast troubleshooting when problems arise.
The undisputed leader in back-in-time analysis, GigaStor eliminates the time-consuming and potentially inaccurate task of recreating problems for troubleshooting and investigating security issues. Just hit rewind to go back in time and review past network activity. Navigate to the exact moment of the service anomaly to see detailed, packet-level views before, during, and after the occurrence.
Eliminate unnecessary finger pointing between Netops, and SecOps and DevOps with fast and accurate root cause identification. Speed resolution of any application, network, or UC issue while using the security forensics capabilities of GigaStor to identify whether a breach has occurred and what resources have been compromised.
GigaStor offers the following features and benefits:
- Now available in two virtual versions to maintain visibility in all hybrid IT/cloud hosting environments—GigaStor Cloud Edition (GCE) for AWS environments and GigaStor Software Edition (GSE)
- Independently validated line-rate capture performance at 40 Gbps with support for 100 Gb networks; accelerates service anomaly resolution and security investigations
- Back-in-time functionality means never having to wait for a service anomaly to repeat before identifying and putting resolution measures into place.
- Scalable to more than a petabyte of storage capacity enables extended visibility into past service delivery health; AES-256 data-at-rest encryption ensures regulatory data privacy compliance
- Expert analytics offers detailed network and application intelligence including deep-packet inspection; ideal for in-depth transaction-level awareness into service and potential security issues
- Fault-tolerant custom design supports five years of uninterrupted, 100 percent duty-cycle capture without dropping a single packet
GigaStor Virtual is now available in two types: GigaStor Cloud Edition (GCE) and GigaStor Software Edition (GSE). Offering similar analytics and back-in-time capabilities of GigaStor appliances, GCE and GSE increases deployment flexibility. GSE, available in various capacities is for on-premises use cases such as branch offices (which may not require a GigaStor appliance) or for flexible troubleshooting anywhere when installed on a laptop. GCE is an AWS AMI and is tuned for AWS environments, ensuring IT teams maintain service visibility when moving applications to the cloud.
Bigger Storage, Smaller Footprint
GigaStor delivers more than a petabyte of data storage in a compact 16U footprint – saving you space and reducing operational costs in your data center, all while letting you to store more data for longer periods of recording time.
3rd Party Validated 60 Gbps Packet Capture Rates
GigaStor has been validated by Tolly Research Group to capture traffic at 60 Gbps with real-world conversation loads – the fastest independently validated rate available in the market. Compared with other solutions that can drop packets or require restrictive filtering that can create monitoring blind spots, GigaStor delivers the performance and accuracy you demand to ensure fast troubleshooting.
Gen3 100 Gb Capture Card
To stay ahead of surging traffic volumes, VIAVI has developed a new next generation capture card that incorporates the latest in integrated circuit and bus technologies to support network packet capture and analysis at up to 100 Gb network speeds.
Line-Rate Packet Capture
GigaStor supports line-rate 1, 10 Gb, and 40 Gb ingress network capture performance, ensuring total transaction visibility and intelligence. Tuned hardware-software design, with an advanced GigaStor accelerated analytics engine, achieves simultaneous line-rate capture and the fastest packet capture mining in the industry for nearly instant network traffic awareness.
Sift through more than a petabyte of data, perform analysis, and find the problem through fast root-cause analysis – minimizing downtime and end-user impact. From an enterprise-wide view, you can drill down to whatever level of detail required to solve performance issues or contain a security breach.
Unique Enclosure Designs
GigaStor appliances are built on a custom-configured foundation, tuned to deliver the best packet capture, analysis, and reliability in the industry. Available in 2U and 4U enclosures or an exclusive portable formfactor for fast, take-anywhere troubleshooting. GigaStor appliances are developed to support five years of uninterrupted, 100% duty-cycle, line-rate capture without dropping a single packet for the ultimate in network conversation visibility and peace of mind.
Network Security Forensics
GigaStor makes collaboration between the network, operations, and security teams simple. It captures and stores all network conversations for later analysis and reporting, making it ideal for augmenting existing real-time security solutions and for satisfying compliance and regulatory objectives. GigaStor not only shows conversations, it can reconstruct the mined data – providing evidence such as phone conversations, web pages, instant messages, and emails while also allowing security teams to determine which assets were compromised.
