Success Story: East-West Traffic Visibility Enabled by Flowmon Probes

One of the largest banks in the world is using Flowmon thanks to probe’s wide L2 and tunneling protocols support including Overlay Transport Virtualization.

One of the top 10 largest banks in the world chose Flowmon because of its OTV (Overlay Transport Virtualization) monitoring functionality and ability to provide deep insight into the network traffic. The customer operates virtualized and geographically dispersed data centers and is using OTV to overcome challenges of providing high availability while keeping operational costs low. Flowmon was the only solution customer found on the market which supported such feature. Flowmon provides enterprises with the most agile flow data exporters in the world by supporting high speed networks (up to 100G links) and various L2 & tunneling protocols.

Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV) is Cisco technology for interconnecting geographically distributed datacenters. OTV is transport agnostic and works on IPv4 running network. It encapsulates src and dst MAC address in an IP packet using Ethernet over GRE tunnel. OTV allows to simply connect and extended infrastructure with additional data center while preserves failure isolation between data centers.
