What is Visibility Fabric?

visibility fabricA comprehensive view

When you can see it, you can control it and that is the idea behind the Visibility Fabric developed by Gigamon.  Everyday technology is being reshaped by cloud computing and Big Data and businesses are totally dependent on the data that traverses across their networks.  While this calls for a reliable infrastructure, which can be derived from tools such as performance managers, analyzers, and security, which will bring to light the communication and network, traffic within the network. 

However, most of these tools are limited in their abilities as they can only see a part of the network traffic and deploying multiples of the same tools may bring visibility up only to a certain level with various parts of the infrastructure still being invisible while shooting the cost up.  In addition, the number of tools installed are limited so are the number of ports.

This makes the data that filters through these tools to be irrelevant to the user and only helps in flooding the networks.  Gigamon has helped put this technology in the past and has brought the future nearer through the Visibility Fabric, which has fabric nodes and an advanced level of filtering intelligence, which now sorts through the immense traffic to manipulate, identify, and filter only relevant traffic to centralized tools.  The Visibility Fabric architecture makes the entire infrastructure visible across the physical as well as virtual environment and can also scale with the evolving technology and IT needs.

Now companies can filter the data and classify it according to priority and deliver the relevant content to the right place for analysis or usage.  This is done with the help of the patented Flow Mapping® technology, which forms the core of the Fabric and works on user-defined rules.  The flexibility is tremendous and one can even modify the traffic to conceal confidential data and also to remove unnecessary data such as extraneous headers and duplicate information.  The Fabric is therefore, necessary to effectively manipulate and modify data but there are also other uses.  It ensures the reliability of the architecture provides security and also significantly boosts the efficiency of the infrastructure.
