Visibility as a Service: Gigamon

To provide the best and the most complete service, there must be visibility to gain control over the architecture.  This is exactly what Gigamon aimed for when it offered Visibility as a service.  Organizations needed to keep their data systems working seamlessly with maximum security provided at all times.  However, they also needed to know what was happening in the infrastructure and in the data generated.  To answer all their needs, businesses have now adopted the Gigamon Visibility Fabric which takes operations to the next level.

The Fabric can be said to be the best innovation of Gigamon, comprised of various nodes which have tool ports on one end and TAP and SPAN ports on the other end.  When data flows through a TAP of Gigamon via a network link, the information gets copied at corresponding speeds and gets sent to a fabric node.  It then identifies the various packets using its Flow Mapping Technology to monitor and analyze data while providing security.  However, the volume of data just keeps on increasing with the advancements of technology and there is no way that one can keep pace without some extra help.  This is where Visibility as a Service becomes a boon to companies.

On top of advancements that bring with it complexity, one needs a simple way to deliver services when and wherever it is required.  The service organizes operations as well as service teams into groups related to various business-IT functions.  Therefore, finance related businesses will be in one category while marketing will be in another, along with various services like security in one team with application performance in another.  Now these teams can work on their specific functions to deliver accurate analytics to the business owners.

The next step is for Gigamon to provide credentials to each business-IT team, which exist on a single platform so that each may have the desired visibility of the infrastructure to fill their business needs.  Each group residing on the fabric can keep track of the data flow. With Visibility as a service, IT operations can access data maps relevant to their need which thereby, eliminates confusion and increases speed and efficiency.
