For Service Assurance in Hybrid Cloud Environments

Delivering visibility for service assurance and cybersecurity in data centers and hybrid cloud environments.


Digital transformations have changed everything for businesses and IT, enabling faster, flatter and more automated services. Achieving high availability and reliability is essential with the business dependencies now well into their innovative digital transformations. In recent industry surveys, server virtualization has risen to one of the top three primary drivers for network, application and service assurance management decisions. This movement to add performance management is also driven by such initiatives as software-defined data centers (SDDC) and public / private cloud adoption. It has been challenging to achieve traditional packet-based traffic monitoring and real-time service assurance analysis - until now! NETSCOUT brings first-of-its-kind smart visibility into these transformative environments with the vSTREAM virtual appliance family.

Gain Visibility and Control in Hybrid Cloud Environments

NETSCOUT delivers visibility across technology services, infrastructures and the platforms that comprise today’s connected world, including private and public cloud, SDDCs and virtualized environments. vSTREAM virtual appliances offer pervasive visibility with software-based instrumentation into packet traffic and application workloads. With this capability as the foundation, IT organizations gain visibility and control for service assurance performance management and cybersecurity purposes.

Visibility into virtualized environments

Figure 1: Visibility into virtualized environments is provided with rich ASI intelligence from the vSTREAM virtual appliances when deployed in combination with the nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform. All members of the IT organization, from NetOps to DevOps, AppOps, SecOps and CloudOps, will benefit from a the improved collaboration that comes from leveraging the same automated analysis.

Harnessing the Power of Smart Data With vSTREAM

The packet-based monitoring and analysis offered by vSTREAM virtual appliances presents real-time views of sessions, conversations, and end-to-end call trace data as well as packet capture and analysis and network-wide KPIs. Armed with this detail, NETSCOUT helps organizations to protect the reliability and availability of their networks and application services throughout their hybrid cloud environments.

Superior Analytics for the Hybrid Cloud, End-to-End

When deployed in combination with the nGeniusONE or virtual nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform, vSTREAM allows for the identification of application and network performance problems as well as security issues across data centers, cloud environments, and branch offices. vSTREAM virtual appliances are also compatible with InfiniStreamNG software and hardware appliances.

Key Benefits to using vSTREAM include:
  • Seamless, Affordable Visibility – vSTREAM is priced to make packet-data analysis affordable, scalable, and simplified to meet service visibility needs in data centers, hybrid cloud and remote locations.

  • Reduced Tool Complexity and Optimized Investment – As vSTREAM and InfiniStreamNG appliances are all ASI-based data sources, they are supported by the same nGeniusONE workflows to deliver a comprehensive network and application service assurance solution.

  • Speeds Time-to-Value – NETSCOUT's plug-and play deployment accelerates the full power and potential of IP intelligence, recognizing thousands of common protocols and applications.

  • Streamlined, Accurate Triage – Proven workflows deliver end-to-end, comprehensive service assurance across virtualized locations, private cloud, or public cloud environments to decrease the mean time to repair (MTTR).
