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 Problem:

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.

The Solution:

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.

The Requirements:

Change the network conditions centrally for each site or group of users so that they can experience how their applications will perform in the Azure UK and Switzerland regions. It must be possible to quickly disable the test networks should application performance be unacceptable.

“As we are going out to customer sites, we need a small professionally developed portable appliance that allows us to adopt a ‘more plug & play approach’, quickly setting up the required test environment and the NE-ONE Professional meets this need. It is proving very beneficial as it enables us to conduct our proof-of-concept tests very quickly at the customer site. We can implement our tests and report the results rapidly, helping the client determine the best solution for their environment”.
