iTrinegy Announces Reseller Partnership with Spirent Communications for Enhanced Enterprise and Cloud Environment Testing
‘iTrinegy gives Spirent the capability to offer Enterprises and Cloud Service Providers a high-end combined testing package for ensuring networked application deployments.’
Cambridge UK and Reno, Nevada, USA - 9th November, 2011 — For Enterprises and Service providers the new iTrinegy-Spirent partnership creates a compelling solution: iTrinegy’s Enterprise grade network emulation technology combined with Spirent Communications’ networks and applications performance testing solution, creates a truly first class networked Application Testing offering. As a result organisations can now have a complete picture of how any changes in IT infrastructure will impact everyday business applications prior to actual deployment.
“By combining Spirent’s industry leading real world performance testing capabilities with iTrinegy’s accurate network emulation, enterprises can assess the readiness of any new application, system upgrade or configuration change without putting the production network at risk,” said David Hill, vice president of EMEA at Spirent. “This is a win-win partnership for our enterprises and cloud service provider customers.
Testing and de-risking the performance of applications is essential in today’s multi-network environments and requires uninterrupted visibility across an entire networked application delivery mechanism, from a data centre or virtual server right across the network and into the client services right to an end user’s own device and browser. Spirent’s addition of iTrinegy network emulators to their market leading network and application performance solution ensures that, regardless of the scale of any virtualization, consolidation, Cloud or similar deployment, their customers will gain peace of mind and assurances that such changes will work. Why? Because, they were able to conduct highly realistic application performance tests showing any pitfalls that may cause problems and so increase costs prior to actual implementation.
Graham Wood, Business Development Director, iTrinegy commented "We are really excited to be working with Spirent who have an impressive global track record in helping companies to de-risk and evaluate today’s changing technologies. Spirent gains our enterprise strength network emulation technology and we gain the opportunity to increase market traction. In the end it’s our customers who are the winners. We’re looking forward to a successful partnership.”
iTrinegy’s network emulation technology brings the ability to replicate even the most complex multi-path, multi-site network environments in minutes. It is already relied upon by major organisations such as Capita, Thomson Reuters, US Army, Starbucks, Sky, Vodafone and IBM.
iTrinegy’s Award winning network emulators provide visibility of how applications will work and perform in any target network such as high latency WANs, Satellite, Wireless networks (3G, WiFi, WiMAX), LTE (G4), QoS-based networks (i.e. MultiProtocol Label Switching, or MPLS), Radio over IP (RoIP) and Routed networks. Their use early in the implementation lifecyle will reduce the need for painful and expensive retrospective application fixing, re-coding or re-designing.
