cPacket's Novel Technology Delivers Unified Performance Monitoring for Today's Cloudy Virtual Network Environments

cPacket Networks today announced cClear technology for performance monitoring and optimization across physical and virtual realms of modern networks. This becomes increasingly important with the trend toward application delivery in the cloud, which poses new operational challenges of more distributed, virtual, and complex infrastructure. cClear is the first unified solution for real-time monitoring in mixed environments of physical and virtual resources.

“While virtual networks enable flexible resource allocation, efficient use of these resources depends on the underlying physical implementation,” said Dr. Rony Kay, founder and CEO of cPacket. “Optimizing data centers requires correlated performance metrics across the virtual overlays and physical network connectivity. Also troubleshooting of intermittent applications requires insight into specific traffic in the virtual tunnels. Therefore, unified real-time visibility across both the virtual and physical boundaries becomes a must.”

Existing network performance monitoring tools only provide limited information of average link utilization, which masks reliability issues like bottlenecks, spikes, microbursts, jitter, and inconsistent user experience. cClear is the first technology to provide a correlated performance mapping of physical links, virtual tunnels, and applications behavior in real-time.

cPacket’s unique hardware-software architecture delivers advanced analytics and real-time visibility beyond what was previously possible. At the heart of this novel architecture are cPacket’s Smart Ports, which are high-speed and cost-effective distributed sensors based on the company’s algorithmic chip. cClear technology correlates information from multiple Smart Ports to identify intricate dependencies between the virtual overlays and the underlying physical network connectivity. Having a granular view of the performance of both the physical and virtual environments allows Network Managers to monitor traffic behaviors, identify critical bottlenecks, and make fact-driven decisions.

cClear is available to existing customers of cPacket’s cVu-NG devices and SPIFEE centralized dashboard at no additional charge.

“The promise of virtualized networking is flexible and agile resource allocation,” said Dr. Kay. “But consistent application delivery depends on solid understanding of actual traffic behavior. cPacket’s new technology provides a correlated performance mapping across cloudy virtual and physical infrastructure to enable higher operational efficiency and improved end-user experience.”

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
