The new appliance is priced on a per-node basis with no data restrictions. The virtual appliance starts at a list price of $10,000 per node and can index and store more than 1 billion messages per day.
The ExtraHop Explore appliance is just one part of the fifth generation of the ExtraHop platform, also released yesterday. New features of the fifth generation platform include the following:
- Open Data Stream for Kafka. This feature uses the Apache Kafka open source message broker for real-time data feeds to support the correlation of multiple data sets while streamlining the distribution of those data sets to multiple destinations.
- Dynamic Discovery. This feature allows for the automatic discovery of any device in the environment, including Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices, understands device dependencies and tracks activity without instrumentation. L2 tunneling enables monitoring and analysis of virtual machine to virtual machine traffic, including virtual L2 segments such as SDN and private cloud. It also expands protocol support for DHCP, Telnet, Kerberos and MSMQ.
- Universal Observation. This feature delivers continuous, comprehensive observation of the IT environment from the highest level to granular, second-by-second detail to help IT identify anomalous and disruptive behavior from any device or user in real time.
- REST API. The new REST API gives users the ability to programmatically use, control and administrate any physical or virtual appliance through any programming language.
- New user interface and user experience features. These new features in version 5.0 are designed to simplify and accelerate the time to exploration and discovery. Key new features include a visual query language, dynamic tables for rapidly building comparisons of any attribute and selective dashboard sharing. New global navigation dynamically guides users through metrics.
