Saisei does Network Performance Enforcement that delivers visibility and control of the network traffic in a different way. Engineers know that DiffServ QoS model doesn’t work like the books say. The complexity of the classify/police/rewrite/queueing model is high and dropping IP packets for traffic shaping is the “least worst” option. And traffic shaping reliably across firewalls, routers and switches simply doesn’t happen in real life.
In this sponsored show, we talk with Bill Beckett about Saisei FlowCommand that uses a flow-based software architecture and advanced algorithms to inspect huge numbers (up to 5 million) of TCP flows across a device and groom the packet flows so that packets are not dropped. Incredibly, the current software supports up to 1 billion external hosts.
Traffic control needs visibility. Instead of guessing at packets and performance, Saisei FlowCommand delivers an interface that binds the data from the inspection engine into usable information. Like any graphical interface, the proof is in the demonstration so check out this video to get a taste:
Control without Packet Loss
In some ways, Saisei FlowCommand provides the quality of service solution that I have always looked for. Each flow is inspected and groomed individually using deep algorithms that almost completely prevent packet loss in the network. Saisei claims that this can double the real throughput on a network link because it removes the requirement to reserve capacity for periods of heavy traffic and ensuring that all data is useful data instead of retransmission, duplicated packets or even wasted ACK sequences.
The product overview can be found at Saisei Products. The Saisei library includes videos of Saisei eliminating timeouts and retransmissions and the policies that Saisei can manage; and Intel and HP app notes. Request a personal demo to see it in your network.
