Big Switch Expands Analytics Portfolio for Enterprise Edge-Cloud and Mid-Market Deployments

Big Mon Recorder and Analytics Nodes Enable Traffic Capture and App-aware Analytics for Any Size Organization and Any Location

SANTA CLARA, CA (July 11, 2019) — Big Switch Networks®, The Cloud-First Networking Company, announced the availability of new entry-level form factors of Big Monitoring Fabric™ (Big Mon) Analytics Node and Recorder Node. 

“Big Switch has pioneered the use of cloud principles to architect pervasive network and application visibility and security on commodity hardware,” said Prashant Gandhi, Chief Product Officer, Big Switch Networks. “With entry-level Analytics Node and Recorder Node offerings, Big Switch further distances itself from expensive and box-based legacy solutions, enabling IT organizations to deliver network telemetry everywhere, for root cause analysis, breach mitigation, and faster mean time to resolution.”

These entry point offerings are attractive to network and security operations teams to deliver pervasive security and visibility across the enterprise organization, including edge locations and remote points-of-presence (PoPs). Additionally, cost-conscious mid-market IT organizations are now able to leverage modern visibility solutions for their security, compliance and performance needs.

Big Mon Recorder Node allows high-performance packet recording, querying and replay functions, and Big Mon Analytics Node provides best-in-class network visibility to monitor, discover and troubleshoot network and application performance issues as well as accelerate root cause of security breach discovery. Both the nodes are fully integrated with Big Mon’s SDN Controller and can be easily clustered on-demand for scaled-out deployment.

With Big Mon Recorder and Analytics Nodes, customers benefit from deep network telemetry for both cloud-based and traditional data center environments and have the ability to replay past conversations across users and applications with a single-click. The entry-level nodes provide a cost-effective entry point, for enterprise and mid-market customers who require advanced packet intelligence, and packet recording for faster detection and resolution of network connectivity, performance, and security related use cases. Architecture flexibility allows Big Mon to easily extend to multi-cloud environments, including hybrid cloud and public cloud deployments.
