nPulse Technologies Partners With Cpacket to Enhance Datacenter Network Visibility And Real Time Troubleshooting

Critical for Network Operations Centers and Security Operations Centers that Need Realtime Insight into Network Performance and Applications Behavior

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – November 22, 2011 – cPacket Networks and nPulse Technologies Inc have announced today that the companies have partnered to bring the most accurate analytics and highest level of applications visibility to Network Operations Centers (NOCs) and Security Operations Centers (SOCs). The combination of cPacket’s line-rate L2-L7 complete packet inspection filtering and precision time-stamping capabilities with nPulse’s 20Gbps HammerHead Packet Capture & Replay system enables operators of highly sensitive data centers to react in real time to operational and security issues that threaten service continuity.

“Network traffic is increasing rapidly in both speed and volume, and this demands new capabilities to detect and react immediately to problems in large data centers,” said Tim Sullivan, nPulse CEO. “By working together with cPacket, we can provide our customers with new levels of real time insight into datacenter applications behavior and performance.”

cPacket products provide highly accurate hardware timestamps with complete L2-L7 packet and flow inspection and filtering at full line rate. cPacket’s time-stamping and clock synchronization ensure deterministic accuracy under any traffic conditions. nPulse's HammerHead appliance can read the cPacket timestamps and convert them to the standard pcap format it uses to record and index network traffic at up to 20Gbps for later analysis or replay.

The combined cPacket and nPulse capabilities deliver particular value for accurate forensic analysis and trending, root-cause analysis with fine-grained history, post-event troubleshooting, and applications performance monitoring. This level of insight is key to maintaining the competitive edge of large, fast, complex networks such as those in financial services, high frequency trading, or high-performance distributed computing applications.

“nPulse’s customers are now able to get a better handle on their network performance, applications behavior, and security issues by leveraging cPacket’s unique features like real-time L2-L7 filtering, port aggregation, and accurate time-stamping,” said Rony Kay, founder and CEO of cPacket Networks. “This will enable network managers to deliver cutting edge applications performance monitoring and respond quickly to unwanted business threats.”
