Apposite Technologies today announced its virtual WAN emulator, NetropyVE™, the world’s first scalable network emulator for virtualized test environments. Apposite will be demonstrating the new product at its booth #1648 at Dell Technologies World 2018, The Venetian, Las Vegas, from April 30 through May 3.
NetropyVE allows application and network development teams to quickly and accurately turn up virtual WAN paths for thousands of virtual machines (VMs) and easily test how workloads will behave from different locations. Every virtual machine can be assigned a unique WAN access profile, and then controlled to insert latency, jitter, packet loss, and congestion — which allows enterprises to determine application and network limitations and behavior. Many dev teams run their tests in the cloud or private datacenters where they do not have the ability to install an appliance. With NetropyVE, it is now possible to install WAN emulation between virtual resources.
“Our customers tell us that the number one reason major cloud migration projects fail is due to lack of testing prior to launch; and there is a lack of awareness of the migration tools needed for these projects,” said Neal Roche, CEO of Apposite Technologies. “Network Emulators, such as NetropyVE, allow teams to quickly emulate the conditions in the cloud networks to validate how legacy applications will perform before transitioning to cloud.”
“By building test cases using if/then scenarios over hundreds of VMs, NetropyVE can help determine application resource and storage locations, workload provisioning, and even planning deployments and relocation,” concluded Roche.
NetropyVE runs on VMware VSphere ESXi or KVM, and is available immediately.
