BreakingPoint Shatters Server Load Testing Performance, Generating Hundreds of Thousands of Simultaneous Sessions

Traditional Server Load Testing Tools Require Hundreds of Servers, Software Licenses and Consultants to Equal the Performance of One BreakingPoint Elite

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 07/14/09 -- Software-based server load testing, developed more than a decade ago, no longer fits into today's resiliency testing requirements. BreakingPoint's network processor driven architecture provides realistic network simulation of hundreds of thousands of simultaneous sessions with blended realistic application traffic from one blade, eliminating costly racks of servers and software licenses. Additionally, BreakingPoint's intuitive user-interface and automation features bring much needed ease-of-use to server load testing.

BreakingPoint Elite Load Testing Introduces Ease-of-Use to Server Load Testing

--  BreakingPoint Elite's new testing module, Client Simulator, is a
    dramatically different approach to server load testing that helps
    companies eliminate racks of servers and costly software licenses
    traditionally required for software-based server load testing.
--  BreakingPoint Elite's intuitive user-interface also introduces
    ease-of-use to the server load testing industry, helping to eliminate
    the pain of costly set-up times and consultants.
--  BreakingPoint Elite has transformed server load testing by:
    --  Shattering the previous capabilities for server load testing by
        simulating hundreds of thousands of simultaneous client sessions.
    --  Validating the integrity of server transactions under real-world
        conditions and peak performance, without the need for racks of
        hardware and software license fees.
    --  Allowing companies to easily measure end-to-end performance,
        diagnose application and system bottlenecks and fine-tune them for
        optimal performance.
    --  Simulating 20 Gigabits per Second (Gbps) per blade of Layer 4-7
        blended application traffic and 40 Gbps of Layer 2-3 traffic per
        blade.
    --  Providing comprehensive security testing of servers with
        application fuzzing; simulating malicious or malformed data packets
        to quickly determine performance issues and reveal bugs.
    --  Introducing an innovative architecture that empowers users with
        easily upgradeable testing equipment including monthly software
        enhancements and weekly application protocols and security strikes
        for the most up-to-date server load testing.
--  The high-demand for performance and security testing of application
    servers, cloud computing, server farms and even projects such as the
    National Cyber Range makes BreakingPoint Elite an ideal solution for
    realistic and cost-efficient resiliency testing.
--  In a real-world analysis one BreakingPoint Elite replaces more than 600
    servers used for server load testing. Performing server load testing
    with BreakingPoint Elite can result in substantial cost-savings around
    hardware, software and power consumption.

Commentary

Dennis Cox, CTO & Co-Founder, BreakingPoint Systems

"Using our hardware-based approach, BreakingPoint altered the Layer 2-7 network equipment testing industry. Today, Network Equipment Manufacturers and service providers depend on BreakingPoint Elite to test equipment using realistic application protocols and live security strikes, not to mention eliminate their legacy testing equipment and license fees. Today, BreakingPoint is doing the same for the dormant server load testing market. The main problem with the traditional software-based approach to server load testing is the need for hundreds of servers and hundreds of thousands of dollars in license fees. BreakingPoint Elite's Client Simulator provides more realistic server load testing, while radically decreasing lifetime costs of testing. What we did to the network equipment testing industry we are now doing to the server load testing market."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
