New capabilities include:
• Support for 64TB of local high-speed disk storage in a three rack-unit system. 64TB of disk storage doubles the amount of traffic that can be recorded by an EndaceProbe, and extends Endace’s industry leadership in density and price/performance. Multiple 7000 Series EndaceProbes can be grouped and load balanced to further extend storage capacity up to 256 Terabytes, without adding the complexity or expense of external SAN.
• Packets, a web-based protocol analyzer now included in EndaceProbe software. Using Packets, network traffic recorded by an EndaceProbe can be decoded and investigated by analysts without downloading sensitive traffic to the analyst’s desktop. Packets saves time, improving mean and maximum Time-To-Resolution, and also helps organizations reduce the risk profile of network and security analysis.
• New traffic visualizations and reports that further help network analysts drill-down into detailed packet data to isolate, investigate and resolve problems from Layer 2 to Layer 7. One new visualization, for example, shows absolute and relative traffic associated with each application on the network at every point in time, so trends and spikes can be easily identified.
“This is an important release for us as it delivers the rich reporting functionality that we know that customers operating high-speed data center networks require for troubleshooting and security forensics,” said Spencer Greene, SVP products and marketing. “The expansion to 64TB of local storage is critical as it gives customers the ability to store more network traffic for longer, which is something we see increasing demand for in high-speed environments.”
Version 5.1 of the EndaceProbe Operating Software is available immediately. Existing EndaceProbe customers with valid support contracts are entitled to a complimentary upgrade and should contact their account manager.
