NetPod promises high fidelity network visibility

The proliferation of data on enterprise networks continues to increase with the rising demand for such technologies as virtualisation, software-defined networking, and high-performance computing, as well as a growing dependency on mobility across the workforce. Couple this with a sophisticated cyber attack landscape, and it’s all IT can do to keep up with network activity.
Emulex and Dynatrace have collaborated to release NetPod combining Dynatrace’s Data Centre (DC RUM) analysis with Emulex’s EndaceProbe Intelligent Network Recorders (INR). NetPod provides network teams with high-fidelity network and application transaction-level visibility and long-term packet storage. NetPod hardware-based EndaceProbe INRs provide 100 percent packet capture, nanosecond time stamping, and “back-in-time” playback capabilities, as well as a platform for user experience monitoring. NetPod enables optimisation of the performance, scalability and predictability of all applications in the data centre, including Citrix, SAP, Oracle, Siebel, and Microsoft Exchange.
NetPod is designed for high-speed 10/40/100Gb Ethernet networks to provide full visibility across multiple tiers, infrastructure components and web and non-web applications. It monitors and records real-time application transactions across the most complex application delivery infrastructures spanning all leading load balancers, firewalls, servers, WAN accelerators, and middleware.
John Van Siclen, general manager at Dynatrace explained that “NetPod uniquely understands application logic and user behaviour for the leading applications, databases and middleware. This integrated solution closes the gap between network and application teams, giving them a unified set of insights to manage their digital channels and infrastructure.”
“Today’s IT teams need end-to-end tools capable of doing more than assisting in monitoring and identifying performance issues,” said Ali Hedayati, senior vice president and general manager, Network Visibility Products, Emulex. “Whether the problem is isolated to the client, network, server or database, the underlying packet data provided by NetPod can be used to ensure that the technology team responsible is provided irrefutable evidence of the true source of the problem. The application context provided by NetPod also supports rapid extraction of the right packets at the right time, even when a transaction of interest occurred in the past. All of this simplifies the delivery of mission-critical, network-centric applications and increases the business value of these applications by ensuring their availability to end users.”
