Virtual Advanced Network Packet Brokers

Network transparency in a distributed virtual environment


Virtual Advanced Network Packet Brokers are full-featured solutions running in a virtual machine (VM) or container.

The growing popularity of virtual environments, along with a change in the format of security monitoring and control tools, significantly limits the capabilities of existing physical systems for ensuring network transparency.

The proposed solution in the format of Tower Networks vANPB virtual brokers is a unified and optimized mechanism that works in a virtual environment — it eliminates all system weaknesses, and provides full data transparency in the cloud, which reduces the overall cost and complexity of network components.

An example of connecting vANPB virtual brokers

The vANPB broker provides complete transparency of the virtual environment, performs filtering at levels from L2 to L7, trims headers, load balancing (between containers, as well as between multiple instances within the same container), fetches data, and performs many other functions.


Key Benefits of Virtual Advanced Network Packet Brokers (vANPB)

  • Illustration

    Complete network visibility in a virtual environment, from virtual TAP couplers to the most sophisticated features of an intelligent network packet broker.

  • Illustration

    Support for various virtual environment options: ESXI, OpenStack, Docker Container, Kubernetes.

  • Illustration

    Ability to send processed data to physical and virtual machines

  • Illustration

    Tower Networks solutions from CGS to increase the level of transparency in a virtual environment can be managed offline or using the CGS Device Manager.

  • Illustration

    General management of vANPB virtual brokers with the ability to scale the cluster according to current needs using configurable triggers (such as throughput).

How to provide visibility of network interactions of the infrastructure?


Visibility solutions are an effective buff for your corporate infrastructure. But by themselves they do not detect, prevent or protect anything, so often business ignores them. The emphasis is on the fact that in a well-designed architecture with the right solutions traffic problems should not arise.
But it works, sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes it may seem that way.
And the truth is that the application of Visibility solutions opens up many possibilities that go far beyond the banal optimization and understanding of processes within the network.
The link links briefly the opportunities that will be available when full network visibility is achieved, typical problems of standard approaches and Visibility synergies, and other monitoring and security solutions.
