Monitor Performance and User Experience in VMware Environments with NETSCOUT

The NETSCOUT / VMware Partnership

NETSCOUT has partnered with VMware to provide visibility for application performance and user experience as digital transformations occur. NETSCOUT and VMware’s initial technology partnership is first-of-its-kind wire-data visibility that, to-date, was unavailable as you moved to a VMware NSX Software Defined Network (SDN).

Migrating to a VMware NSX environment is a major transformation for any enterprise. NSX offers simplified management, micro-segmentation security, provisioning agility, and improved data center economics. As your organization benefits from accelerated service velocity, enhanced security, and rapid disaster recovery, successful migration will depend on overcoming the lack of visibility into application dependencies and user experience. Your bottom line depends on continuous availability and quality end-user experience; anything less, puts your business at risk.

What is needed is a performance management solution that reduces mean time to repair (MTTR), eliminates visibility gaps, and provides a streamlined view that will scale across your VMware ESX, NSX, and SD-WAN deployments, alongside multi-cloud and legacy data center environments.

NETSCOUT NSX Edition of vSTREAM Bridges the East-West Application Visibility Gap

NETSCOUT leverages the power of packet data through its patented Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology and is designed to scale to the needs of the world’s largest enterprises and service providers. The NSX-T edition of vSTREAM is unique in delivering application visibility, troubleshooting, and assurance directly from the hypervisor. nGeniusONE, with industry-leading support for more than 1,000 applications, including voice, video, and data, uses ASI-generated smart data from vSTREAM to pinpoint the source of application disruptions impacting the user community.

Unrivaled, end-to-end visibility into business application services, along with contextual workflows to speed problem resolution are available with the NSX-T edition of vSTREAM and nGeniusONE, making the solution both easy for a Level 1 responder to use and powerful for an expert to operate. Rather than looking at individual elements in isolation, the nGeniusONE solution offers an overarching view into the performance characteristics of applications and user experience, while validating that micro-segmentation security controls have been properly implemented. These views expose underlying service dependencies that help IT teams to more effectively manage health, availability, security, and user experience issues across their NSX data centers.
