Mobile Forensics Unit Streams Packets to Disk 5 Times Faster than Previous Generation
MILPITAS, Calif., June 22, 2015 – Network Instruments®, a JDSU Performance Management Solution (NASDAQ: JDSU), announced today the launch of its new GigaStor Portable 10 Gb Wire Speed retrospective network analysis (RNA) appliance. The new portable configuration utilizes solid state drive (SSD) technology to stream traffic to disk at full line rate on full-duplex 10 Gb links without dropping packets.
“For network engineers, remotely troubleshooting high-speed networks used to mean leaving powerful RNA tools behind, and relying on a software sniffer and laptop to capture and diagnose problems,” said Charles Thompson, chief technology officer for Network Instruments. “The new GigaStor Portable enables enterprises and service providers with faster links to accurately and quickly resolve issues by having all the packets available for immediate analysis. Additionally, teams can save time and money by minimizing repeat offsite visits and remotely accessing the appliance.”
Without GigaStor Portable's insight, engineers may spend hours replicating a network error before they can diagnose its cause. GigaStor Portable can be deployed to any remote location to collect and save weeks of packet-level data, which it can decode, analyze, and display. The appliance quickly sifts through data, isolates incidents, and provides extensive expert analysis to resolve issues.
The GigaStor Portable 10 Gb Wire Speed with SSD provides 6 TB of raw storage capacity, and includes the cabling and nTAP needed to install the appliance on any 10 Gb network and start recording traffic.
