Corvil Announces the World’s Highest Performance Streaming Analytics Solution for Wire Data

New Corvil 8400 achieves record benchmark of 60Gbps sustained real-time HTTP transaction analysis for best-in-class IT Operations Analytics, Threat Detection, and Business Intelligence.

DUBLIN, IRELAND – July 12, 2016 - Corvil today announced its new flagship streaming analytics solution, the Corvil 8400, the industry’s first 80Gbps streaming analytics appliance for wire data. With this new appliance, Corvil establishes an industry leading performance benchmark of 60Gbps sustained L2-L7 streaming analysis of HTTP transactions. This enables clients to attain transparency, optimization, and cyber-threat detection across the most demanding enterprise environments and web scale applications. With this level of performance in a single 2U appliance, clients can consolidate their infrastructure and services instrumentation through greater aggregation driving lower cost and complexity across data center environments.

The new performance benchmark represents a fifty percent improvement in performance from the prior record benchmark of 40Gbps sustained wire data streaming analysis achieved by the Corvil 7450 platform.

In a recent research report, Gartner predicted "it is wire data - radically rethought and used in new ways - that will prove to be the most critical source of data for availability and performance management over the next five years."1

Corvil wire data analytics uniquely extracts IT, security and business relevant information from packet data flowing in the network and transforms it into operational intelligence that is used to assure and safeguard critical business services and applications.

The Corvil 8400 is based on an innovative streaming analytics architecture which supports both real-time streaming analysis of packet data and optional packet data capture. Corvil supports both smart triggered packet capture or continuous packet capture to local storage on the appliance. This powerful architecture allows Corvil to support live and retrospective wire data analytics use cases where real-time monitoring, alerting and retrospective forensics of the source packet data can be done simultaneously, in a single appliance without compromise.

“We believe that the data flowing in the network is more valuable than the network itself. Corvil was the first company to empower customers to tap into this value with the introduction of our unique streaming analytics platform for wire data. Corvil has always been the price performance leader in this space. We are delighted to continue that tradition today with another industry first. Our new 80Gbps flagship appliance, the Corvil 8400, sets a new industry benchmark for performance and scale married with the best-in-class wire data analytics for IT, Security and Business intelligence,” says Donal Byrne, CEO of Corvil.

The Corvil 8400 software defined appliance is comprised of high performance bare metal hardware optimized to run Corvil’s modular streaming analytics platform for best price, performance and reliability combined. The Corvil 8400 bare metal hardware engine support two 40Gbps ports for a total of 80Gbps input data analysis and capture. Highlights include support for:

  • 80Gbps line rate bursts for all packet size profiles
  • 60Gbps sustained L2-L7 streaming analytics for HTTP applications
  • 200 – 300TB of local storage capacity with data compression
  • 2U form factor

Corvil is showcasing its latest security and IT operations analytics software on its new appliance platform at Cisco Live located in the Mandalay Bay Convention Resort, Las Vegas on July 12-14. Corvil invites attendees to Booth #929 to see first-hand the power of the Corvil approach and understand how the data flowing in the network can be tapped by the network team and delivered as a service to IT, Security and Business operations team to revolutionize the delivery and security of critical services and applications.

The Corvil 8400 is currently in early availability and will be generally available in August. More information on the Corvil 8400 platform is available on the Corvil site:
