Ixia Data Center Test: Demonstrating and Delivering Value

 

Ixia solutions and assessment services deliver the critical insights needed to justify and optimize investments in data center clouds. Ixia helps enterprises define strategies for virtualization and convergence, evaluate and select equipment, and fine-tune data center designs and configurations to meet application and business objectives. Our comprehensive data center test solutions include:

 

 

Virtualization, Storage, and Compute

 

  • Measuring capacity/performance of NAS, SAN, and DCB systems

  • Verifying performance/robustness of virtualized network and server tiers

  • Determining peak sustainable compute capacity of virtual server infrastructure

 

Switching Fabric

 

  • Testing the reliability and scalability of switch fabrics

  • Ensuring seamless OAM in and between data-centers

  • Facilitating IPv6 migration: 6rd, NAT64, Dual-Stack, DHCPv6

 

Application Delivery and Security

 

  • Optimizing delivery of consumer and business applications

  • Validating end-to-end user QoE for each target application

  • Testing security effectiveness and robustness of virtual and physical infrastructures

 

A consolidated compute and storage network achieves significant cost-performance advantages over multi-fabric networks. Standard block and file access protocols leveraging InfiniBand RDMA result in high-performance storage access. Mellanox adapters support SCSI, iSCSI, NFS and FCoIB protocols.

 

Ixia simulates different systems and technologies within and surrounding the data center, as well as the supported clients and applications – at scale. The ability to model and test the end-to-end infrastructure provides insights into "what if" scenarios to help predict and mitigate the impact of problematic conditions – high latency, hacker attempts, network impairments – on applications.
