WildPackets' Omnipliance SuperCore is aimed at enterprises and midmarket companies alike.
WildPackets wants to give enterprises and midmarket businesses alike greater
visibility into their networks.
At the Cisco Live Conference June 24 in Orlando,
Fla., WildPackets officials rolled out the
Omnipliance SuperCore, a data recording offering to enable IT administrators to
capture, monitor and analyze traffic on their 10-Gigabit networks.
The goal is to give network engineers the forensic capabilities to track
everything happening on their networks, said Tony Barbagallo, vice president of
marketing at WildPackets.
Barbagallo said that, until recently, it was primarily the larger
enterprises with their complex networks that needed such analytical
capabilities. That has changed, with midmarket companies now needing the same
technology to monitor their emerging 10G networks, he said.
WildPackets has also evolved, starting out selling software to large
businesses and then, four years ago, selling appliances bundled with its
software to make it easier and more affordable for midmarket companies to
monitor their networks, he said.
The Omnipliance SuperCore, aimed at high-speed networks and distributed
storage subsystems, offers such features as full capture and analysis
capabilities for 10G networks, programmable hardware filtering, high-precision
time stamping and synchronization, and up to 64 terabytes of local storage. It
also supports SAN (storage-area network)
Customers will be able to order it June 27, Barbagallo said.
