Ixia, a global provider of converged IP network test solutions, today announced that Dell has selected the company as one of its key partners for performance testing on its PowerEdge server line.
Dell’s PowerEdge series includes the large-scale blade servers used by service providers and enterprises for virtualized data centers, which require extensive benchmarking and testing.
Dell chose Ixia’s platform because of its ability to match the scale, performance, and flexibility necessary to test large rack servers.
Ixia’s solutions thoroughly test high-capacity virtualized data center networks and storage infrastructures by addressing key challenges, such as service availability, infrastructure elasticity and provisioning, capacity, end-to-end application and services delivery, and performance across all layers.
As enterprises migrate their data and applications to the cloud, and leverage virtualized server infrastructures, it is essential to measure application performance through all stages — on-premise physical servers, virtual machines, and eventually a fully-hosted cloud.
