Ixia, provider of converged IP and wireless network test solutions, will unveil IxLoad-VM – a solution for testing virtualized data centers and their infrastructures – at VMWorld 2011.
IxLoad-VM measures the quality and capacity of cloud data center components, applications, and networks to deliver effective cloud-based services. Ixia will use IxLoad-VM and other Ixia products to demonstrate the testing of a fully virtualized data center with virtual security elements, virtual router/switch nodes, and actual web infrastructure.
The IxLoad-VM solution assesses application performance across the virtualized data center in conjunction with IxNetwork-VM, which assesses layer 2/3 network performance in virtual environments.
The combination of Ixia’s virtualized test solutions provide the essential tools to ensure that cloud service will perform with high availability and security, allowing enterprises and cloud providers to independently validate service level agreements (SLAs). Ixia’s virtual tools isolate portions of the virtual data center to pinpoint security flaws, performance bottlenecks, and operational issues.
