NETSCOUT to Provide Application Visibility and Troubleshooting for VMware NSX

Certified NETSCOUT vSTREAM Now Available for VMware NSX

WESTFORD, Mass. – August 27, 2019NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., (NASDAQ: NTCT), today announced it will enable customers to extend their application visibility and troubleshooting to VMware NSX environments with NETSCOUT vSTREAM® technology. This new offering will provide high performance, agent-less and easy to deploy service assurance and application monitoring for VMware NSX users. NETSCOUT is an Advanced VMware Technology Alliance Partner.

Now more than ever organizations are focusing on creating and delivering applications within a transformed data center and multi-cloud architecture to propel them towards a successful digital future. Consistent visibility and troubleshooting at the application level are imperative for the successful deployment, refactoring, and operation of critical business services within this transformed data center. Yet while organizations desire, and increasingly require, built-in and automated application and network performance monitoring, the reality today is that they must rely on dozens of tools and fragmented, low-resolution data to do this.

The results are gaps in visibility and increased finger-pointing between business and technology teams in addition to the providers they rely on, to isolate and quickly resolve problems when they do occur. NETSCOUT is focused on delivering Visibility Without Borders to allow organizations to manage their risk better and accelerate digital transformation by providing continuous, unified, reliable data of the risks and performance status of the applications and workloads whether they reside on physical, software or public cloud instances.

“VMware is providing a consistent networking and security fabric across multi-cloud and hybrid environments, providing a full-stack solution. NETSCOUT creates a virtual infrastructure for the data center and cloud for deep visibility and consistent security,” said Nikhil Kelshikar, vice president of NSX Product Management, VMware.

“VMware is breaking down the barriers to automated deployment of applications, consistently and more securely across the virtualized infrastructure. With this partnership and the release of VMware certified NETSCOUT monitoring solutions for NSX, we have extended our leading visibility and troubleshooting analytics platform to be deployed natively, invisible to the workload,” said Anil Singhal, chief executive officer, NETSCOUT. “Quickly identifying the cause of service and application disruptions is difficult when IT teams are limited to using inefficient and limited visibility solutions designed for a different era. Organizations require Visibility Without Borders during this period of rapid data center transformation.”

NETSCOUT offerings provide an early warning system that can rapidly pin-point application and service level performance risks and enable real-time triage to resolve problems. 80% of the Fortune 100 and 90% of Tier 1 service providers use NETSCOUT solutions to solve their hardest application, network and security issues. NETSCOUT’s platform is unique due to its scalable, distributed architecture which stores and processes data at the collection point, including the virtual version, vSTREAM, which provides visibility of east-west traffic deep into the application stack, and then forwards the most relevant indicators, in real-time, to a single monitoring and analysis platform, without losing the ability to go back into the stored data for all details. With the NETSCOUT vSTREAM edition, an agent-less solution, customers can achieve best-in-class, consistent real-time application-centric visibility and troubleshooting into all services.
