The NETSCOUT / VMware Partnership

NETSCOUT has partnered with VMware to provide visibility for application performance and assurance in a number of critical areas.

NETSCOUT and VMware’s initial technology partnership is first of its kind, wire-data visibility that, to-date, was unavailable as you moved to a VMware NSX Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) network.

Migrating to a VMware NSX environment is a major transformation for any enterprise. NSX offers simplified management, micro-segmentation security, provisioning agility and improved data center economics. As your organization benefits from accelerated service velocity, enhanced security and rapid disaster recovery, successful migration will depend on overcoming the lack of visibility into application dependencies and user experience. Your bottom line depends on continuous availability and quality end-user experience; anything less, puts your business at risk. What is needed is a service assurance solution that eliminates the blind spots and, provides a seamless view that will scale across your NSX, cloud and legacy environments.

Innovative Solution for VMware NSX Environments

NETSCOUT's innovative smart data technology goes beyond traditional north-south traffic views, to now provide deep insights into traffic across your virtualized networks. The NSX edition of vSTREAM, certified by VMware, revolutionizes how applications are monitored and analyzed in NSX software defined data centers and beyond. It is the first service assurance solution to deliver affordable, agentless monitoring of east-west traffic in NSX environments.

The nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform leverages vSTREAM smart data to provide an overarching view into application performance and user experience while validating that your micro-segmentation security controls have been properly implemented. Easy to deploy and manage, the NSX edition of vSTREAM will seamlessly adapt to your organization's security policy and strategy.

Unrivalled Visibility for VMware Cloud on AWS

VMware Cloud on AWS is another area of visibility collaboration between the two companies.

As your applications are now hosted between your private and public cloud environments, your IT department’s ability to isolate the root cause of service disruptions may be compromised by inefficient point tools and limited visibility.

NETSCOUT’s family of vSTREAM virtual appliances in combination with nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform delivers targeted workflows and comprehensive clarity necessary to address the most challenging application service and security assurance issues in VMware Cloud on AWS environments.
