Innovation is Critical to Address Imminent Network Storms, cPacket CEO to Discuss at Sharkfest '14


Dr. Rony Kay, Founder and CEO of cPacket Networks


Dr. Kay will make the case that open source software combined with accurate, real–time network analytics, is essential to address today's high speed and distributed infrastructure. This combination is the only way to deliver global insight that enhances operational efficiency, enables better optimization, and drastically shortens time–to–resolution of costly disruptions.

Modern applications delivery relies on data centers, virtualization, and connectivity to client devices. This has led to networks becoming faster and traffic patterns more complex, which exponentially increases the operational challenges of monitoring and optimization. Unfortunately, traditional performance monitoring tools were not designed for the speed, scale and complexity of this rapidly evolving environment. These growing challenges demand agile and pervasive intelligence throughout the entire network. Efficient workflow requires real–time key performance indicators, proactive alerts about imminent issues, and immediate detection of intermittent misbehaviors, which software alone cannot provide. Therefore, software tools need to be coupled with distributed smart ports, leveraging intelligent hardware, to perform the heavy lifting of real–time inspection of every bit in every packet and flow. The combination of open source software with hardware–generated metadata and real–time alerts from distributed smart ports allows more efficient network operations, better optimization of the environment, and shorter time–to–resolution of problems.
