Cloud Visibility Platform

Clouds provide flexibility, speed, and scalability—critical in today’s digital economy. But it is not easy to see data flowing in cloud environments and without data access, security and performance may suffer. You need a cloud visibility solution to see inside all your clouds.

Ixia's Advantages for Cloud Visibility

You use cloud to increase your agility and operating efficiency. Make sure your visibility platform offers the same advantages to maintain security and optimize performance. Explore Ixia's differentiators for cloud visibility.

Many clouds with thumbs up

ADVANTAGE: VISIBILITY TO ANY CLOUD

For maximum flexibility, choose a cloud-agnostic visibility platform that can see cloud data in Windows and Linux operating environments; on NSX, ESXi, Hyper-V and KVM hypervisors; and in all the major public clouds, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Bluemix, Alibaba Cloud, and more.

ADVANTAGE: CLOUD-NATIVE SCALABILITY

You choose cloud for its ability to scale on-demand and your visibility solution needs to do the same. A container-based, cloud-native solution embeds sensors in every new cloud instance you create, so your visibility solution has unlimited scalability and no single point-of-failure.

ADVANTAGE: INTELLIGENT FILTERING

In addition to data access, you need a way to filter the large volume of cloud data so you don’t overwhelm your security and performance monitoring solutions. A visibility platform with context-based, intelligent filtering lets you identify and send only the relevant data—without duplication, without unnecessary protocols, and in the correct format—to all monitoring solutions.

ADVANTAGE: CLOUD-BASED MONITORING

As innovative cloud-based monitoring solutions become available, you will need your visibility platform to work efficiently in an all cloud environment. Choose a cloud visibility solution that can filter traffic in the cloud and send data directly to security and application performance solutions in any cloud environment.
