Coraid Employs Linktropy WAN Emulator for Ethernet SAN Testing
Linktropy Replicates Customer WAN Conditions to Ensure Storage Performance

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 12, 2011)Apposite® Technologies, the leader in easy-to-use, professional-quality network simulation products, today announced that Coraid has selected the Linktropy 7500 PRO WAN emulator for testing its Ethernet SAN products.

Coraid is redefining the fundamental economics of storage with Ethernet SAN solutions that provide enterprises of all sizes with flexible, scale-out, high-performance storage. Using innovative software with commodity, industry standard hardware and Ethernet, Coraid EtherDrive storage arrays enable a scale-out Ethernet SAN architecture that is ideally suited to dynamic high performance computing, video, virtualization and cloud environments.

Coraid selected Apposite’s Linktropy 7500 PRO to simulate customer network conditions. The Linktropy WAN emulation appliances simulate wide-area network bandwidth, latency, loss, congestion, and other impairments to test application performance in the lab. By replicating a wide range of customer network conditions, Coraid can ensure that their storage systems work optimally when deployed by customers for remote replication.

"Linktropy is an invaluable tool for our storage replication testing," said Alan Beltran, Vice President of Engineering at Coraid. "Emulating customer network conditions during the development process tells us how the system will work on real customer networks and avoids surprises when installed in the field."

Apposite offers a complete line of network emulation products. The 7500 PRO model emulates four separate links of up to 1 Gbps each.
