Pervasive Visibility across Hybrid Environments

vSCOUT and vSTREAM offer pervasive visibility with software-based instrumentation of traffic flows and application workloads in a virtualized data center and hybrid cloud environments. As the foundation for end-to-end service assurance, including application- and network-assurance, these tools provide service providers, including Telefónica with unprecedented visibility and control of hybrid cloud environments.

NETSCOUT supports OSM ETSI/MANO, VMware, and OpenStack + KVM private cloud, as well as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure public cloud environments and the Telefónica UNICA reference architecture, thus providing visibility to critical network data that is lost when key network functions and services are virtualized. Administrators can use the full suite of OpenStack and VMware administrative tools to orchestrate the NETSCOUT virtual probes as well as the virtualized network functions and the application services monitored by them.
