Big Switch Networks' Big Monitoring Fabric With BigSecure Architecture
SDN specialist Big Switch Networks introduced a significant upgrade to its SDN Big Monitoring Fabric product line with the addition of its new BigSecure Architecture – a high-performance cyberdefense platform that enables Terabit attack mitigation. The new security functionality helps customers protect their data centers against massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
The company’s new Big Monitoring Fabric 6.0 is a network packet broker deployed at the data center edge that connects security tools and leverages SDN, open networking switching and x86-based Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) service nodes to offer scale-out monitoring. Big Monitoring’s controller-based SDN platform provides centralized control of policies and configurations through a single pane of glass. New features include support of machine-to-machine traffic visibility in VMware environments and the ability to monitor container-to-container traffic.
