ClearSight Networks, a worldwide provider of award-winning application and analysis tools for today’s dynamic networks, today announced that it has significantly expanded the capabilities of its market-leading network capture appliance, the Network Time Machine (NTM), with the introduction of version 6.5. Leveraging ClearSight’s expertise and experience in protocol analysis and data collection technologies, the company has developed Atlas, a time-based, historical analysis tool to capture, index, and archive all network traffic, and store it in a large RAID-based storage system. In addition, ClearSight announced the availability of NTM Distributed with multi-user capabilities, allowing for up to four simultaneous users to access a single NTM probe.

With Atlas, the enhanced NTM platform now has the ability to analyze and categorize all Ethernet network traffic, and provides for a quick and easy way to retrieve key statistics and information from this data. In addition, unlike some competitive offerings, the NTM uses enterprise class SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drive technologies on the backend, as well as a RAID storage controller on the front end, providing unparalleled levels of performance and data protection. The Premium2, ClearSight's highest performing NTM, is equipped with two quad Core CPUs -- or eight processors -- and over 4 terabytes of storage. There are also 13 and 44 terabyte versions.

"The NTM dramatically simplifies the approach to network troubleshooting," said Sam Li, CEO and cofounder, ClearSight Networks. "With advanced functionality and features, including the ability to monitor network data in real time while continuously capturing every single packet, our new NTM delivers industry-leading expertise to troubleshooting network environments, accelerating time to root-cause identification and problem resolution. With NTM, users can ensure the health and reliability of their networks by pinpointing problems and bottlenecks that competing solutions can not even see."

With the bandwidth requirements of network users growing at unprecedented rates, the use of long term network capture appliances in conjunction with more traditional troubleshooting and monitoring tools is quickly becoming an IT best practice. The NTM has integrated the ClearSight Analyzer product with the capture appliance, providing network engineers and administrators with data mining and protocol analysis capabilities in a single best-of-breed tool.

"NTT Marketing Act is an operating arm of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone, the largest carrier in Japan, and we have been using the ClearSight NTM product for nearly two years," said Hidezou Shinbo, Section Manager, NTT Marketing Act. "Before we deployed the NTMs to our sites in Tokyo and Osaka, we found it difficult to pinpoint the cause of network issues, particularly those experienced by our teleconference service customers. The ClearSight NTM, however, enables us to determine the source of these problems, whether it is on the user, system, or network side. This capability has enabled NTT to exceed the service level agreements that we have set with our customers."

NTM 6.5 and the Atlas option are currently shipping. Pricing for the NTM begins at $33,700 and $5,000 for the Atlas module.
