What is Application Dock?
Application Dock™ is a Virtual Machine (VM) environment for hosting analytics applications that consume network packet data. Hosted applications can analyze real-time traffic at line-rate. Or, using Playback, they can analyze recorded traffic for back-in-time analysis.
Deploying analytics tools in software delivers far greater flexibility at much lower cost than deploying hardware-based analytics appliances. Analytics functions can be deployed quickly to wherever they are needed on the network. Analytics tools can be spun up as needed. And there are no costly roll-out and integration projects.
