cPacket Networks Acquires Solarflare’s SolarCapture Appliance Business
Joint Solution Provides cPacket Customers with 40Gbps Visibility into High Speed Critical Networks and Retrospective Analysis of Operational and Security Issues
cPacket Networks, a leading provider of nextgeneration network performance monitoring and packet broker solutions, has entered into an agreement with Solarflare to acquire the company’s SolarCapture® Appliance business.
Solarflare’s SolarCapture Appliance business provides network traffic capture capability for a variety of IT NetOps and SecOps applications including compliance, service-levelagreement monitoring, performance monitoring, security analytics, network forensics, and record keeping. Now an integral part of cPacket’s cStor (integrated packetforensics for advanced real-time-analytics) product-line, the combined solution
provides 100-percent lossless capture for speeds up to 40Gbps.
“Making the SolarCapture Appliance technology a permanent addition to our cStor product family enables us to extend our high-performance analytics offerings to our customers and deepen our reach into financial-services and similar demanding industries. This will allow our customers to take advantage of new capabilities with feature, performance, and cost benefits cPacket offers,” said Brendan O’Flaherty, CEO of cPacket Networks.
“A year ago, Solarflare entered into a development partnership with cPacket to respond to our customers’ requests for a best-in-class capture appliance platform with advanced analytics and GUIs,” said Russell Stern, CEO of Solarflare. “As the partnership evolved, we concluded that our customers will be better served by the transfer of our SolarCapture appliance business to cPacket. This agreement will allow Solarflare to
continue our focus on transforming the way applications use networks.”
