For Service Assurance in Hybrid Cloud Environments

Deliver Application Assurance and Network Assurance with pervasive visibility into data centers and hybrid cloud environments.

Retain Visibility and Control of Hybrid Cloud Environments


Without the means to continuously collect traffic-flow and application data, your complex, high-speed data center and hybrid cloud infrastructures may not be able to keep up with the digital economy’s constant demand for new applications and services. By collecting and mining this data in real time, companies can extract accurate and actionable IP intelligence vital to application and network assurance. This intelligence reveals the vast interdependencies across the entire service stack, including applications, networks, compute, service enablers, and databases in hybrid cloud environments.

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

Smart Data for Smart Service Assurance

One of the biggest hurdles of delivering high performance services lies in the inferior data that often drives service assurance. Random data, which is not normalized and correlated in context with the monitored (and often sampled) application and service delivery infrastructure, makes it difficult to deliver real-time, actionable insights.

NETSCOUT’s Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology continuously collects, organizes, and contextually analyzes traffic and application data to provide rich information about the performance of applications, networks, and the entire service delivery infrastructure. vSCOUT and vSTREAM utilize ASI technology to generate smart data and extend service assurance solutions from the network to applications, whether they run in physical or virtual data centers, or in the cloud. Such smart data can also be exported to external data lakes to infuse big data analytics projects.

Pervasive Software-based Instrumentation with vSCOUT


vSCOUT is ideal for monitoring services within data centers or public cloud infrastructures where traditional packet acquisition techniques are not feasible or cost effective. This newest generation of ASI-based software products leverage NETSCOUT’s unique smart data approach to offer a highly scalable and affordable option for managing the complexities of applications deployed in hybrid environments. 

Harnessing the Full Power of Smart Data With vSTREAM

Whether it is deployed as an instance in a cloud environment or as a virtual machine on a hypervisor, vSTREAM leverages the full power of ASI technology, including session details and long-term packet recording.

By aggregating traffic from multiple sources, including from vSCOUT, vSTREAM leverages smart data to  present real-time views of sessions, conversations, and end-to-end call trace data, as well as perform packet analysis and provide network-wide KPIs.

Superior Analytics: For the Hybrid Cloud, End-to-End

When used in conjunction with the nGeniusONE or virtual nGeniusONE Service Assurance platforms, vSCOUT and vSTREAM help identify application and network performance issues across data centers, cloud environments, and branch offices. vSCOUT and vSTREAM can be deployed in combination with physical and virtual InfiniStream appliances.

Key vSCOUT and vSTREAM benefits include:
  • Seamless, Affordable Cloud Visibility – vSCOUT and vSTREAM are priced to make pervasive visibility affordable. vSCOUT can be deployed everywhere and enabled as needed for service visibility. vSTREAM is delivered using a scalable deployment model that can be configured to meet the performance requirements dictated by the volume of wire-data (a.k.a. traffic-flow).    

  • Reduced Tool Complexity and Optimized Investment – vSCOUT, vSTREAM, and InfiniStreamNG appliances are all ASI-based data sources and are all supported by the same nGeniusONE workflows, delivering a complete network and application service assurance solution.

  • High-Confidence Hybrid Cloud Deployment – vSCOUT and vSTREAM extend pervasive visibility to the hybrid cloud while maintaining that same user experience for network and application assurance as in the data centers today.

  • Reduced Time-to-Value – Our plug-and-play deployment harnesses the full power of IP intelligence, recognizing thousands of common protocols and applications.

  • Streamlined, Accurate Triage – Decrease your mean time to repair with proven workflows that deliver end-to-end, comprehensive service assurance across on premises, private cloud, or public cloud environments.
