Today’s Weekly Show is a sponsored podcast with Ixia, which is well known for its visibility, testing, and security products. In this episode, we talk about CloudLens, a product to provide access to packet data for security, monitoring, and visibility in the public cloud.
Because network infrastructure belongs to the cloud provider, you can’t just plug in a tap and start capturing packets like you would on your premises network.
Instead, a CloudLens agent runs in a container in the customer’s instance, grabs the packets, and passes them along to other tools for analysis. A management service can coordinate and manage multiple agents as the solution scales up.
Our guests for today’s conversation are Recep Ozdag, Vice President for Network Visibility; Kris Raney, Senior Architect, Cloud and Virtualization; and Murali Allada, Principal Software Engineer.
We talk about how you can use CloudLens to route your public cloud traffic to other analysis tools, such as security or performance monitoring tools. We also talk about how CloudLens is deployed in the cloud, what’s different compared to a premises network deployment, and more.
