Apposite Technologies Announces 10G4 High Density 10 Gbps Network Emulator for Datacenter Migration Projects
Netropy® 10G4 helps datacenters validate traffic management policies and optimize application performance over multiple 10 Gbps WAN links with 80 Gbps capacity
LOS ANGELES — (August 15, 2017) – Apposite® Technologies, the industry leader in application performance testing over wide area networks (WAN), today announced the release of Netropy® 10G4, adding to Apposite’s family of award-winning WAN emulators. 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.
“Datacenters managers are constantly judging how much extra bandwidth they require to support new services or migration projects,” said Neal Roche, CEO of Apposite Technologies. “We help them answer the question: how will legacy applications perform when migrated to a remote datacenter?”
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 will be exhibiting at VM World in Las Vegas, August 27-30 at booth # 1813.
