Observer GigaStor M

An optimized end-user experience enabling solution offering flexible deployment options for your network observability needs

GigaStor M is an industry first—a metadata-only high-performance, cost-effective, scalable solution that delivers packet level insight from the network edge to the data center core. With GigaStor M, VIAVI delivers flexibility and choice in how you instrument your IT environment.

Designed to work in conjunction with Observer GigaStor and Observer Apex, GigaStor M enables the patented VIAVI end-user experience scoring (EUE) wherever your network teams needs it; even remote branch facilities. When instrumented with GigaStor on high-traffic network links, GigaStor M greatly improves Observer 3D monitoring performance.

Tightly coupled with Apex, GigaStor M offers the following features and benefits:

  • EUE scoring deployment flexibility from the data center core to the network edge
  • When coupled with a GigaStor appliance, improved GigaStor write-to-storage performance
  • Fault-tolerant custom 2U design supports five years of uninterrupted, 100 percent duty-cycle capture without dropping a single packet

Metadata Generation Performance Options

GigaStor M is offered in three ranges of metadata generation rates to align with your organization’s end-user experience scoring demands and network observability goals Boost GigaStor Performance When deployed together as a single solution, GigaStor M improves GigaStor write-to-storage capabilities by up to 40 percent.

Unique Enclosure Designs

Like all VIAVI Observer appliances, GigaStor M is built on custom-configured foundation, tuned to deliver super-fat metadata generation based on packet insights. With GigaStor M, EUE scoring network observability is now available across your IT resources. GigaStor M appliances are developed to support five years of uninterrupted, packet analysis.

GigaStor M is New!

When deployed with Apex, GigaStor M is designed to bring EUE scoring wherever your business needs it to maintain optimal network observability

Observer GigaStor M tightly integrates with the entire Observer 3D platform

Nitro Insights Powered by Observer

Observer GigaStor M 2U appliances can be easily mounted in a standard rack unit. By utilizing the Observer nTAPs included, you can insert and remove a GigaStor M from the network without disruption of flow. GigaStor M requires Observer Apex. Best Practices

  • Place GigaStor M models together with GigaStor models to boost write-to-storage performance at the data center or heavy traffic links.
  • GigaStor M can also be deployed alone at the network edge, branch or any location where full long-term packet capture and retention is not an option

Observer - Scale of Deployment

GigaStor M Options

GigaStor M is available in five, 2U appliances to address the distinct metadata generation (and corresponding end-user experience) demands of network traffic loads including a sustained 10, 20, or 50 Gb sustained performance levels.
