VSS Monitoring Introduces Total Visibility for Network Monitoring Across the Cloud

New Network Traffic Handling Advancements Bring Scalability, Resilience, Higher ROI to Network Intelligence Tools

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2011) - VSS Monitoring, the world leader in network intelligence optimization, today announced network access scalability across the cloud for network intelligence tools.

Powered by vStack™, the new vStack over IP capability helps enterprises extend the reach of network intelligence tools used for analytics, security and monitoring across IP and WAN networks while increasing network performance, security and reliability. By optimizing and directing monitored data from devices and network switches to centralized analysis and security tools, VSS' network intelligence optimization vastly simplifies operational complexity, increases network monitoring reliability, and delivers higher ROI.

"We are once again leading the market, pioneering cloud interconnect capability and extending network access across the cloud, something no other vendor offers today," said Gordon Beith, director of product management at VSS Monitoring. "It accelerates our already strong momentum, taking us to the next level in offering the highest-value, most scalable network intelligence optimization solutions."

The vStack over IP feature captures and collects traffic throughout the cloud infrastructure, providing end-to-end visibility of network services and applications through the cloud. It delivers unprecedented scalability, enabling centralized network monitoring from any point in the world, accommodating conditions such as:

  • Resource migration to alternate datacenter;
  • Service delivery path change;
  • Tool farm failover or migration.

In addition, other enhancements to VSS' network intelligence optimization systems include:

  • The second extension to the XML API integrated control capability for third-party network tools, allowing them to access and configure VSS intelligence optimization systems;
  • User-independent filtering for increased filter flexibility;
  • Session-aware load balancing on inner L3 and L4 headers for GTP and MPLS traffic;
  • Multi-faceted N+N load balancing for additional redundancy options.

These features further lower operational costs and improve tool utilization while decreasing response time to events and increasing network monitoring reliability.

The vStack over IP capability and the other enhancements are being unveiled at Cisco Live, the industry's premier education and training event for IT, networking and communications professionals.

VSS Monitoring, Inc. is the world leader in network intelligence optimization, providing a visionary, systems-oriented approach for optimizing and scaling connectivity between network switching and the intelligence ecosystem of network analytical, inline security and WAN acceleration tools.
