7:00-7:45 Visibility in the Virtual World
Yury German: Senior System Engineer / Gigamon
With virtualization the network era has entered a new dimension. With more and more network traversing the hypervisor, IT tools used to monitor, analyze and secure the infrastructure face new challenges. How can the tools gain pervasive visibility of virtual machine traffic, and how can they maintain visibility as virtual machines move from one hypervisor to another. To overcome these challenges more and more organizations are turning to Gigamon, a market leader in traffic visibility solutions. With patented Flow Mapping™ technology, Gigamon provides line rate solutions at one, ten, forty and one hundred gigabits per second, and with the GigaVUE-VM fabric node, the same technology has been extended into the virtual network. Attend our session to learn more about visibility in the virtual world.
Yury German has held roles in consulting in financial companies as a Senior Security System Architect. In that role he was responsible for building robust Virtual environments, from the architecture and security perspective. Yury was also responsible for managing the operations of a security managed service company that utilized virtualization environment to have a 99.9% uptime record.
