QualiSystems Validates Critical Virtual Network Assets within Cloud Ecosystems, Accelerating Time to Market, Assuring Performance
Demo at Interop orchestrates and assesses converged private and public cloud infrastructure’s readiness for application delivery before deployment
SANTA CLARA, California, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
QualiSystems [http://www.qualisystems.com ] will conduct a cloud orchestration and
assessment demonstration at Interop Las Vegas, May 7-9, 2013. The demo, including
QualiSystems’ TestShell Framework and Ixia [http://www.ixiacom.com ]‘s IxVM
[http://www.ixiacom.com/products/network_test/applications/ixvm/index.php ], will test the
performance of a hybrid cloud environment operating across private data centers and public
cloud services, including networking, computing, storage, hypervisors, virtual switches,
and virtualized applications to assess its ability to deliver application performance. The
assessment will demonstrate the importance of orchestrating the set-up and testing of
services in several scenarios, namely private, public and hybrid clouds to enable complete
visibility into the network before live deployment.
TestShell, QualiSystems’ comprehensive infrastructure automation software framework,
enables product and service testing before going live to end customers. TestShell assures
that physical and virtualized resources are effectively deployed and configured, and that
tests run smoothly and thoroughly, leaving nothing to chance in real-world deployments.
IxVM, the software-based implementation of Ixia’s test platform, provides complete
Layer 2 to Layer 7 traffic generation and analysis for virtualized environments. Used with
the Ixia IxNetwork
[http://www.ixiacom.com/products/network_test/applications/ixnetwork/index.php ] solution,
it is specifically designed to test virtualized assets including virtual switches,
hypervisors and virtual appliances and environments.
With cloud infrastructure
[http://www.qualisystems.com/site/content/t11.asp?Sid=83&Pid=715 ], accurate testing is
even more critical. The cloud itself consists of computing, services, storage and
networking components, which must interoperate smoothly to guarantee high performance.
Moreover, when greater amounts of data are stored in the cloud; applications require
querying and transaction of data in different locations, further elevating the amount of
data transferred. It is therefore critical that network reliability and application
delivery be thoroughly tested before made operational for customers.
“Ixia is a trusted and valued partner of QualiSystems and we welcome the opportunity
to include it in the demo alongside TestShell,” said Alex Henthorn-Iwane, vice-president
of marketing at QualiSystems. “Effective test assembly and assurance that all aspects of
the cloud function properly is critical before in-service deployment is completed.
QualiSystems has built up a base of experience working with service providers, network
equipment vendors and data center operators to confirm functionality and bring services to
