SDN and Virtualization

Ensure full visibility in dynamic SDN environments without compromise

Traditional traffic capture methods are obsolete in modern SDN environments

More and more organizations are adopting SDN technologies to ease their IT operations and boost business agility. By improving network control, SDN enables enterprises and service providers to respond quickly to changing business requirements.

Deploying containerized microservices greatly increases architectural design flexibility, as well as security control granularity. Unfortunately, keeping visibility and control in such highly dynamic environments become a challenge. Traditional physical network traffic capture techniques are becoming obsolete. Next- generation performance management platforms have to provide additional capabilities to integrate seamlessly into highly distributed and virtualized infrastructures without affecting overall complexity.

Seamlessly adapt monitoring when everything else is changing

Organizations constantly move workloads from on-premises data centers to private or public clouds, from monolithic architectures to microsegmented applications, and from physical to virtual and SDN infrastructures. These changes make monitoring needs unpredictable.

Due to its distributed and scalable technology, as well as a disruptive pricing model, Skylight offers the solution you need to seamlessly adapt your monitoring capabilities  to your business needs as they evolve, all while preserving your initial investment and design foundations.

How to gain control and full visibility in highly distributed environments

Achieving full network traffic visibility in a highly distributed environment typically requires the deployment of a number of sensors in different physical and virtual infrastructures. This can lead to third-party dependencies and scalability limitations, as well as a lack of centralized configuration, management and correlated visualization.

Skylight provides a unique hybrid, scalable and converged technology, enabling the monitoring of complex SDN infrastructures with a single pane of glass view.

“Skylight monitors every flow to our data center, our 3,500 users, and provides visibility into every application. With Skylight, we have transitioned from reactive monitoring to proactive performance management.”
