CRITICALITY OF CLOUD NETWORKS
Fifty percent of the applications running in public cloud environments will be considered mission-critical by organizations that use them. *Gartner”7 Elements for creating a pragmatic enterprise cloud strategy,”Gregor Petri, 3June2019
As the use of cloud services has become pervasive, cloud networking has been elevated to the fourth most significant challenge to cloud adoption. It is so significant that 50% of organizations cite cloud networking challenges as a primary inhibitor to cloud applications. *Gartner”How to use the internet for cloud connectivity without performance disasters,”Bjarne Munch, Padraig Byrne, 17July2019
By year-end 2021, 70% of large enterprises will rely solely on the internet for their WAN connectivity for small and remote branch office, which is twice the 35% in 2017. *Gartner”How to interconnect with azure, aws and google backbones,”Bjarne Munch, et al, 25March2020
NE-ONE Software Defined Test Networks
Replicate Complete Cloud Networks
A Software Defined-Test Network allows you to create the same cloud based network experiences in which to test drive applications under varying performance levels helping you to increase the accuracy of your testing and make informed decisions before making any commitment:
- Run your real applications over one or more test networks to predict cloud performance across a highly-distributed application infrastructure
- Identify the type of network conditions that impact application performance
- Repeat tests time and time again
- Determine which cloud providers meet your requirements

Example Use Case
Microsoft Azure Cloud Migration Pre Deployment Testing
The company would like to move applications hosted in the Madrid Data Centre but they are concerned about networked application performance as there isn’t a local Azure region and the applications will be hosting further away from the users.

Install the NE-ONE Professional X2 Network Emulator at the Madrid DC so that it is inline as a bridge between the remote sites and servers. Use the NE-ONE’ Professional’s multi-link feature to create three test networks and assign to each site using the site’s IP Address. Dynamically disable the test networks should the performance be unacceptable using the NE-ONE’s Web GUI.
