InMon Demonstrates Network Analytics at SCinet

Nov. 18 — InMon Corp., the leader in performance monitoring of high speed networks, is providing the first public demonstration of sFlow-RT by displaying real-time, network-wide analytics from the SCinet network.

sFlow-RT incorporates InMon’s asynchronous sFlow analytics engine (patent pending), leveraging the standard sFlow instrumentation already included in most vendors data center switches to deliver comprehensive real-time visibility in Software Defined Networking (SDN) stacks and enabling new classes of performance aware SDN application. sFlow-RT provides the actionable real-time data that is essential for building software defined networks that automatically adapt to changing workloads and optimize system performance, for example: isolating performance problems in multi-tenant environments, mitigating DDoS attacks, and load balance large flows to increase throughput and reduce latency.

“We are excited by the opportunity to demonstrate the scaleability of our real-time analytics engine by monitoring the SCinet network,” said Peter Phaal, President of InMon Corp. “Real-time analytics unlocks the full potential of software defined networking, allowing vendors to deliver smarter networks that automatically adapt to changing demand.”

“We have been using sFlow-RT for the past 6 months to provide real-time detection and characterization of DDoS attacks,” said Ted Mektrakarn, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, VPLS Inc. “Real-time measurement and SDN transforms the task of DDoS mitigation, allowing us to detect, respond and stop large attacks within seconds.”
