Multi-GigaStor Analysis

Is visibility into your complex network architecture a challenge? Multi-GigaStor analysis simplifies access to the critical information you need. Using multiple GigaStors, now you can quickly get relevant content from different perspectives across multiple models. Our optimized Multi-GigaStor Analysis feature combines data from multiple appliances into a single pane of glass, providing aggregated statistical analysis of all your metrics.




VoIP and Video Extract

VoIP and videoconferencing are complex communications – difficult to isolate and troubleshoot without using advanced GigaStor features such as call extract. It streamlines the process of locating and extracting VoIP and video call sessions, saving hours of troubleshooting time and ensuring all relevant activity has been identified for investigation. Just enter a variable such as a phone number or Caller ID, and the system will automatically piece communications together for analysis.




Gen2 Capture Card Enhancements

  • Faster, more flexible gigabit and 10 Gb packet capture and RNA
  • Synchronized hardware-accelerated filtering for up to 12 ports
  • Flexible hardware deduplication; no latency introduced



GigaStor Upgradeable 2U Form Factor

In addition to 5U, the GigaStor Upgradeable now offers a 2U option. It provides the same fault-tolerant capabilities as the 5U, including redundant fans and power supplies, hot-swap drives, and Lights out Management (LOM). The 2U extends high-speed packet capture and retrospective network analysis to the network edge or branch office sites in a cost-effective, field-scalable platform that supports 2 TB to 16 TB of storage in four drive increments. The 5U chassis continues to have the flexibility to support 8 to 48 TB of storage, and is ideal for the data center, distribution layer, and server access layer.




Third-Party Analysis

Using multiple tools to manage and investigate performance issues on the network? Observer now supports third-party analysis capabilities. It enables you to actually launch the third-party tool from GigaStor to external analysis and security solutions.

  • Mine data and automatically launch analysis of data within third-party tools alongside Observer analytics.
  • Observer and GigaStor captures can be sent to IPS/IDS and security devices, compliance and forensic tools, and other network analyzers.
