Alleviating Network and DPI Bottlenecks with ‘Local Caches’

In a recent interview, Ariana Lynn, Principal Analyst at The Fast Mode spoke to JB Baker, VP of Product at ScaleFlux on the impact of traffic visibility on modern IP networks. JB joins us in a series of discussions with leading networking, analytics and cybersecurity companies, assessing the need for traffic filtering technologies that can deliver real-time, granular application awareness. The series explores how advanced analytics power various network functions amidst the rapid growth in traffic and applications. 

Ariana: How do your solutions and products fulfill the demands of today’s networks?

JB: ScaleFlux’s products and solutions help reduce data movement between the application nodes (or compute nodes) and the data lakes, contributing to alleviating network and DPI bottlenecks that can add latency and reduce the efficiency of the application nodes. ScaleFlux’s products enable the application nodes to store larger working sets of data, or “local caches,” in a cost-effective manner. This reduces the need to refresh the local cache by retrieving additional data from the remote storage arrays.

Ariana: How important is traffic visibility for your suite of solutions and products?
