The industry is transitioning to distributed architectures which drive a demand for higher speeds as data rates continue to increase. To accommodate, the modern data center is transitioning from traditional scale-up architectures to bandwidth intensive scale-out architectures while data center inter-connect addresses the needs of edge computing.
Within distributed storage environments like these, the amount of cross-sectional bandwidth consists of petabytes of information. When data is stored within the cloud, it needs to be replicated up to 10 times or more to ensure redundancy and integrity, but in the continual struggle to guarantee expedient access to data, network latency remains a constant bottleneck that dramatically affects business operations.
Apposite Technologies line of network emulation products help storage manufacturers and architects understand and address these problems before it’s too late. Our award-winning test solutions allow users to easily emulate a functional production network prior to going live. With our intuitive and friendly web-based GUI, these test networks can be deployed in seconds and configured to emulate network impairments, like latency, packet loss, and congestion. By killing application performance in a pre-deployment setting, users can identify issues early, validate network and device performance, and understand the experience of their end-users.
Pre-deployment testing is worth it and you can’t guarantee reliability until you do.
