The next generation of our well-received PerfectStorm 10/40GbE platform is available now. PerfectStorm 100GbE is the world’s only native 100GbE testing platform, far ahead of other test solutions, the closest of which offers just 10GbE native interface support. The new platform comes to market at the right time, as equipment sales of 100GbE are ramping in Service Provider and Enteprise Data Center.
PerfectStorm™ is Ixia's latest testing platform that modularly-scales to nearly a terabit of application traffic in a single, integrated system. It generates stateful applications and malicious traffic that simulate millions of real-world end-user environments to test and validate infrastructure, a single device, or an entire system.
PerfectStorm's complex application workloads make it simple to simulate realistic data, video, voice, storage, and network traffic to ensure high-performing and secure data center infrastructure.
Customer Key Benefits
The architectural breakthrough of the PerfectStorm family adopts the technology innovations built around Ixia’s Xcellon-Ultra™ and BreakingPoint® Firestorm™ hardware families, resulting in a revolutionary converged solution with optimal flexibility and performance, to meet the requirements of today’s and future next-generation networks.
A single, integrated system equipped with 12 PerfectStorm blades, allows control of application traffic to nearly a terabit, up to 720 million concurrent connections, and new TCP connections rates of up to 24 Million. The hardware-based acceleration supports massive encryption levels with up to 240Gbps of SSL traffic and 480Gbps of IPsec traffic per system. The system uses inline field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for enhanced accuracy pertaining to latency measurements with a resolution of 10ns.
PerfectStorm Hardware Elements
Generating traffic at 80Gbps per blade and 960Gbps per XGS12 chassis, PerfectStorm load modules are the industry's most scalable for testing converged multi-play services, application delivery, and network security platforms for both wired and wireless networks:
The PerfectStorm Fusion variant seamlessly unifies the IxLoad and BreakingPoint software applications into a single, more powerful system - one that can validate every element of the data center to ensure the secure delivery of mission-critical applications.
