Ixia Adds Hyper-V, VMware vSS Support To Private Cloud Monitoring Tool

Calabasas-based networking testing software and hardware provider Ixia has added private cloud support to its CloudLens testing product, saying it has added support for both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vNetwork Standard Switch (vSS) in the product. Ixia's tool provides security monitoring, performance analytics, and troubleshooting tools to its users, by monitoring network packet data for application data, handling things like SSL decryption, and more. The new support comes on top of existing support for OpenStack KVM, VMware ESXi and NSX cloud infrastructure. Ixia's CLoudLens software takes advantage of Ixia's "Virtualization Tap" solution to monitor private cloud traffic, as well as application and threat intelligence monitoring software.
