AppositeÂ® Technologies, the industry leader in application performance testing over wide area networks (WAN), has announced the release of NetropyÂ® 10G4, adding to Apposite´s family of award-winning WAN emulators, the company said.
The Netropy 10G4 offers eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and can support wire rate traffic up to 80 Gbps in a single chassis.
Datacenter architects are adding more and more 10 gigabit links between sites to ensure sufficient bandwidth to support storage networks and application servers. However, the distance between datacenter sites can have a huge impact on application throughput and responsiveness, due to latency and packet loss of the network.
The Netropy 10G4 allows cloud application developers and datacenter architects to simulate multiple 10 Gigabit network links in their lab before going live. By emulating the real network conditions, they can experiment with traffic management policies and optimize application performance.
The Netropy 10G4 is also ideal for multi-user testing. By taking advantage of Apposite´s unique engine-locking capabilities, four separate users can each run their own, independent tests on a dedicated pair of 10 Gbps ports, providing a highly compact and cost-effective alternative to purchasing multiple emulators.
Apposite Technologies´ award-winning WAN emulation products provide IT professionals with high precision tools for benchmarking the performance of applications across wide area networks. Distinguished by industry-best ease-of-use and unmatched value, Apposite´s Linktropy and Netropy appliances inform critical decisions impacting bandwidth investment, application deployment, and end-user satisfaction. Apposite´s network emulation products are used by enterprises, network application developers, government and military organizations, and telecoms carriers around the world.
