Network-aware application performance and security assurance solutions provider, cPacket Networks has worked with AWS to integrate with its AWS Gateway Load Balancer service. AWS’ new service makes it easy to deploy, scale, and manage third-party virtual appliances. The company’s solutions also integrate with the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Traffic Mirroring service.
Better network traffic visibility
AWS’ GWLB aims to provide a fault tolerant, transparent, and horizontally scalable service with separation of security and user domains. It enables users to decouple virtual appliances, such as the cPacket cCloud suite including cVu-V packet broker, cStor-V packet capture, and cClear-V analytics, from everything else running in the Virtual Private Cloud. It also offers them as a separate, highly reliable, highly scalable appliance-as-a-service.
cPacket cVu-V is a multi-cloud virtual packet broker supporting both in-line and traffic-mirroring modes in the cloud. GWLB, with ingress routing, front-ends the cVu-V providing seamless network intelligence, security delivery, and brokering services to cloud-native tools. The integrated solution also allows network packet data to be delivered effectively and securely in north-south directions across the internet, availability zones, and VPCs. Paola Moretto, VP of System Engineering, cPacket Networks, said,
“cPacket’s cCloud solution enables our customers to realize their cloud migration plan and gain the visibility they need. The tight integration with AWS Gateway Load Balancer allows us to offer turn-key solutions that greatly simplify IT operations.”
