Data Center Testing
Empowered helps ensure your Data Center delivers the performance, availability, security and scalability your application users and customers demand.
Empowered helps Data Center stakeholders:
- Validate Data Center architecture and design, and Data Center switching and storage networking technology choices
- Benchmark performance, availability, security and scalability, and optimize interconnections between physical and virtual servers, and storage
- Verify size, performance and SLAs of connections between Data Centers and DR Sites, and optimize latency and throughput for data replication and failover
- Optimize High Performance Computing Clusters (HPCC) for “Big Data” and Hadoop
- Stress-test to find limits – How many Virtual Machines does your SAN support? Under load? With congestion? When VM migration occurs?
- Plan your migration to the Cloud – Validate the performance and security of your Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud offerings, as a provider, or end customer
