Last week, network visibility vendor WildPackets rolled out its WatchPoint 3.0 solution, providing a distributed Big Data network monitoring solution. With WatchPoint 3.0, an enterprise can capture and store granular network data for up to a year in order to optimize networks and troubleshoot issues.
WildPackets CEO Tim McCreery explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that WatchPoint runs in the browser with a dashboard that automatically connects to the remote sensor for data.
WatchPoint 3.0 release improves on its predecessors by an order of magnitude in terms of scale and speed. It delivers those gains via an integrated HP Vertica database, the data backend of the WatchPoint 3.0 solution.
