Abstract: The evolution of networks both in terms of speeds as well as in terms of network architectures from physical to virtual and from SDN to NFV are adding complexity to how networks, applications, and security are the managed and monitored. Traditional approaches of monitoring are breaking down with these rapid changes, growing scale and complexity. In this session a health systems network architect and Shehzad Merchant of Gigamon will explore new approaches to monitoring and management, which leverage a centralized and open approach to enabling pervasive visibility.
