Measure capacity and improve performance of virtualized environments using real-world attacks and authentic user behavior
Virtualization promises cost savings and improved IT capabilities for many businesses, but for every story of cost savings there is one about server sprawl and management nightmares. Businesses must pinpoint and remediate these problems to improve performance, measure capacity, and ensure resilience to attack and load for their virtualized infrastructures.
But the traditional approach of over-provisioning IT resources to guarantee adequate performance does not work in virtualized environments. So how do you validate your virtualized infrastructure using real-world conditions without investing in an expensive test infrastructure to generate sufficient traffic volume?
By subjecting virtual servers and application delivery infrastructures to a range of high-stress conditions, BreakingPoint Actionable Security Intelligence (ASI) solutions and BreakingPoint Data Center Resiliency Lab deliver unsurpassed visibility into the performance, security, and capacity of virtualized infrastructures. BreakingPoint enables you to blend real application traffic with live security attacks, protocol fuzzing, and massive user volume, so you can understand in detail how security attacks, malformed traffic, and application interactions will affect the capacity and performance of virtualized infrastructures in the real world.
With BreakingPoint, you can:
- Configure virtualized environments for optimal performance and capacity
- Gain confidence that virtualized applications will deliver the best end-user experience even under peak load or attack
- Improve capacity planning decisions to rightsize virtualized infrastructures and meet business needs cost-effectively
- Eliminate the complexity and wasted time of traditional testing approaches that employ multiple tools and incompatible interfaces
