ExtraHop Changes the Cloud Monitoring Game with 10 Gbps Virtual Appliance
New EH6100v is the First and Only Virtual Appliance to Deliver Visibility into Cloud and Virtual Environments at Datacenter Scale – at a Fraction of the Cost of Competitive Offerings
LAS VEGAS, NV – INTEROP – April 27, 2015 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, today announced the release of the EH6100v, a virtual appliance delivering real-time wire data analysis at up to a sustained 10 Gbps for AWS cloud and VMware environments. In addition to delivering the fastest throughput and transaction rates of any virtual appliance on the market, the EH6100v provides significantly higher performance at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.
“Cloud and virtualisation are not the future – they are today’s reality,” said Christian Renaud, Senior Analyst, Networking, at 451 Research. “According to a recent 451 survey, respondents expect that within the next two years, 76 percent of all of their applications will be deployed in either a private, hybrid, or public cloud. Despite this paradigm shift, monitoring and management technologies have been slow to keep pace with the new IT framework. With the EH6100v, ExtraHop has delivered what the industry has long needed – the capacity to monitor these cloud-based workloads at scale.”
“Last year at Interop, we spoke with over a dozen monitoring companies. Only ExtraHop didn’t turn us away when we said we’re primarily on AWS,” said Christopher Murdock, System Engineer at Conga, the leading provider of document generation and reporting applications for Salesforce. “With ExtraHop’s virtual appliances, we’ve taken our monitoring of user experience, activity levels, and application behavior to a whole new level. ExtraHop has dramatically improved the way that we monitor and manage the business.”
With the ExtraHop 10 Gbps virtual appliance, enterprises have the speed and capacity they need to derive unparalleled IT and business insights from wire data at scale in cloud and virtualised environments. Key capabilities of the EH6100v include the following:
- Instantaneous insight delivered by real-time wire data analysis at up to a sustained 10 Gbps – the equivalent of approximately 108 terabytes of data per day.
- The ability to transform up to one million packets per second into structured wire data and then analyse and visualise all transactions using the ExtraHop real-time stream processor.
- SSL traffic analysis at a sustained bulk decryption rate of 3 Gbps with the capability to process up to 4,130 handshakes per second with 2048-bit RSA keys.
- Analysis of up to 530,000 HTTP transactions per second.
“Our enterprise customers are increasingly moving toward virtual and cloud environments, but monitoring workloads in these environments has proven to be a real challenge,” said Kurtis Lindemann, Executive Vice President, RoundTower Technologies, a data center infrastructure and information technology consulting company. “The ability to monitor and manage virtualised networks and cloud workloads is mission-critical to ensuring that applications perform as expected for the business. ExtraHop not only provides this crucial visibility, it is the only platform that can do it in real time and at scale.”
“The cloud is no longer an aspirational concept in enterprise IT. Legacy monitoring tools are still trapped in the past,” said Raja Mukerji, President and Co-Founder, ExtraHop. “ExtraHop is dedicated to providing unmatched IT visibility at scale for the next generation of enterprise IT environments, regardless of whether they exist on-premises or in the cloud. With the EH6100v, we now provide the most scalable virtual appliance for wire data analysis, delivering a level of performance unmatched even by other vendors’ hardware.”
ExtraHop is the global leader in real-time wire data analytics. The ExtraHop Operational Intelligence platform analyzes all L2–L7 communications, including full bidirectional transactional payloads. This innovative approach provides the correlated, cross-tier visibility essential for network and application performance, availability, and security in today’s complex and dynamic IT environments. The winner of numerous awards from Interop, TechTarget, and others, the ExtraHop platform scales up to 40 Gbps in a single appliance, deploys without agents, and delivers tangible value in less than 15 minutes.
