Ixia has announced CloudStorm 25GE, designed as the first cloud-scale, high density application delivery and network security test platform specially designed for hyperscale data centers, enterprises and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs).

The platform adopts 25Gbps technology to satisfy growing bandwidth demands while ensuring high-quality application delivery and mitigating security risks.

An all encrypted world may not be far away. According to Gartner, “through 2019, more than 80% of enterprises' web traffic will be encrypted.” The scale of traffic continues to grow at an exponential rate along with the move to cloud architectures and growth of IoT.

To keep pace, network equipment manufacturers must develop solutions to meet these growing requirements, and hyperscale data center operators and enterprises are grappling with the need to strike the right balance between efficiency, performance and security.

CloudStorm 25GE is a new platform for testing converged multi-play services, application delivery, and network security. It helps NEMs shorten their development cycles, as well as enterprises and data center operators to mitigate security risks and deliver high end-user application performance.

“The growth of encryption combined with the development of greater Ethernet speeds requires test solutions that can support this evolution,” Ixia VP of product management Sunil Kalidindi said.

“The 25GE support on the CloudStorm platform offers network equipment manufacturers, enterprises and hyperscale data center operators the single unified verification tool they need to ensure that they can validate the performance of their products, services and infrastructure and serve their customers now and in the future.”
