Ixia Expands CloudLens Support for Private Clouds

Ixia , a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security solutions, today announced that the company has extended the capabilities of its recently announced integrated cloud visibility platform, CloudLens™, to include support for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vNetwork Standard Switch (vSS).

Combining the power of Ixia’s virtual tap, packet and application flow filtering, SSL decryption, and rich

Netflow metadata generation, Ixia’s CloudLens platform provides service providers and enterprises with unprecedented insight into physical, virtualized, and hybrid environments. CloudLens enables security monitoring, performance analytics, and troubleshooting in a seamless, integrated solution.

In addition to OpenStack KVM, VMware ESXi and NSX, the CloudLens platform now supports Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vNetwork Standard Switch (vSS). As a result, customers can easily manage a virtualized computing environment, while reducing IT costs.

“Ixia works hand in hand with our customers to understand their unique challenges when initiating or managing their cloud deployments,” said Christophe Olivier, Senior Product Manager at Ixia. “It’s this close collaboration that enables us to develop visibility and virtualization solutions that eliminate these challenges, and enable customers to fully benefit from the advantages offered by the cloud.”

A platform consisting of existing Ixia solutions and planned products that will integrate network visibility, CloudLens enables customers to easily and quickly deploy a highly scalable traffic monitoring system spanning private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments. CloudLens currently includes Ixia’s  Virtualization Tap™ solution to access private cloud East/West traffic, as well as the company’s  Vision  series of Network Packet Brokers with the  Application and Threat Intelligence Processor™ (ATIP™) for actionable insight into network activities and the ability to visualize and analyse user, device, and application behaviours.
