|Phantom Virtual Tap Wins Acclaimed Best of FOSE 2011 Honors|
Net Optics' revolutionary Phantom Virtual Tap™, with its unique ability to bridge physical and virtual networks, has captured the esteemed Best of FOSE award in the Top Network Visibility Solution category.
Government Computer News (GCN) announced the July 21 win for the next-generation Tap—the first and only virtual network visibility solution to earn FOSE recognition. The Tap is already in a class by itself as the only solution from a monitoring access vendor to achieve this physical and virtual bridging. Hailed as an engineering triumph, the Tap delivers unprecedented total visibility into formerly murky traffic passing between VMs on hypervisor stacks. With its ability to tap traffic between virtual servers (VMs) on a physical server, the Phantom Virtual Tap heralds a new era of effective compliance, management, and security.
"Phantom Virtual Tap fills the critical need for visibility in the virtual space," says John Breeden, Director of the GCN Lab. "There are many physical monitoring tools, but nothing approaches this Tap's advanced virtual capabilities."
The innovative Tap also provides superior scalability, Hypervisor stack network monitoring, and ease of integration with VMware vMotion, as well as integrating with the Net Optics Director™ family and with the simple, intuitive Indigo Pro™ Management Platform.
Unrivaled Business Value for the Data Center
The Phantom Virtual Tap delivers customers the economic benefits of monitoring their data centers without making a heavy capital investment in specialized virtual tools. The Tap enables end-to-end visibility, control and packet capture of network traffic passing between virtual machines in ESX and ESXi environments; fault-tolerant architecture supports all modes of VMware without requiring changes or creating a single point of failure.
The Ultimate Compliance Solution
Amid ever-increasing and tightening regulations, the Phantom Virtual Tap is vital for conducting checks and auditing activities, letting customers easily extend monitoring policies and tools developed for physical networks into virtualized environments. FOSE 2011 is the latest win for Net Optics, which has been recognized this year by Red Herring, and the San Jose Business Journal, while garnering the notice of high-profile media outlets like The San Jose Mercury News, CBS local news, and Gentry magazine.

Net Optics technology experts speak out
VP of Technology Sharon Besser provides his thoughts on the process of predicting and anticipating what your network will look like in 2-3 years.
"The growing adoption of smart phones and streaming data, and the need to provide better quality content, are driving a need to develop faster networks. More bandwidth, less latency, and less tolerance to jitter dictate a different type of pipe—pipes that are larger than ever and that require development of new interconnect protocols (not to mention the new hardware). Adoption of new networking technologies used to be capped by the speed that silicon and optical vendors were able to deliver cost-effective solutions to market. "
