The New Best Practice of SAN TAPs


The New Best Practice of SAN TAPs
"Reduce Troubleshooting From Days To Minutes"

Is your Fibre Channel SAN infrastructure TAP'd? With your most mission critical applications running on your FC SAN and the growing use of virtualization, there has never been a greater need for comprehensive, real-time insight into your SAN infrastructure. Despite attempts by some vendors to provide limited features such as port mirroring, these practices are inadequate as they fail to see lower level interactions or provide full visibility into sessions that exceed bandwidth demands.

With all of the recent advancements in the datacenter, designing a cabling infrastructure that provides visibility into the SAN has remained fairly stagnant...until now.

The revolutionary breakthrough offered by fiber-optic network TAPs (Traffic Access Points) are being broadly adopted by enterprise datacenters across the globe as end users now depend on this inexpensive, non-intrusive and effective way of gaining full performance and utilization visibility of their SAN infrastructures.

Join David Bartoletti, Senior Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group, Andrew Varley, Business Director of Splice, and Alex D'Anna, Director of Solutions Consulting, Virtual Instrument as they explain how such simple devices have enabled complex IT environments to reduce their SAN troubleshooting times from days to minutes.
