Achieve End-to-End Network Visibility
A lot of application traffic flows across both the Software-Defined Network and non-SDN infrastructure. NetBrain’s A/B path calculator provides visibility for any application path end-to-end, so you can troubleshoot application performance issues much faster.
Manage SDN and Traditional Networks in a Single View
SDN is most often installed in a “brownfield” deployment, connecting to the existing non-SDN infrastructure. NetBrain maps the physical and logical connections both within the SDN network as well as its interconnections with the legacy network. You get a single, centralized view of your entire network end to end.
Decode SDN Design on a Map
To effectively manage any new technology, you must understand the underlying configuration and design intent. With NetBrain, you can turn on or off different layers of data on the map to examine both the SDN and non-SDN network from different perspectives (e.g., design, physical location, security policy).
Get Real-Time Analytics to Resolve Problems Faster
Before you can troubleshoot your Software-Defined Networking infrastructure, you must understand what’s actually going on. Executable Runbooks automatically analyze the design and diagnose performance of the SDN network in real time. You can even automate “level-0” diagnostics, triggered by an event.
Auto-Trigger a Diagnosis From the SDN Controller
When you’re responding to an incident, every minute counts. A NetBrain diagnosis can be triggered at the moment an event occurs, so all the information you need is waiting for you. For example, when the SDN controller picks up a problem, NetBrain can map the problem area instantly.
