Spirent Communications, the leader in networks, devices and applications testing solutions, today unveiled Spirent Velocity, a virtual lab environment that helps validate Software Defined Networks (SDN) / Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies and deployments. Selected as the Best of Interop 2014 Finalist in the Cloud category, Spirent Velocity helps accelerate time to market and reduce expenses associated with traditional virtual and physical test beds.
For SDN/NFV technologies, predicting how networks, applications and security devices perform is a significant challenge since there are multiple elements involved, from the network layer through the compute and application layers. Spirent Velocity allows users to quickly set-up a predictable and repeatable virtualized test fabric to a desired deployment architecture, including choice of hypervisors, guest operating systems, reference server setup, NFV and other network elements such as SDN controllers and switches.
Spirent Velocity’s cloud-based design seamlessly incorporates the Spirent TestCenter Virtual and Spirent Avalanche Virtual test appliances, simplifying setting-up and running test cases using a database of methodologies for testing performance, availability, security and scale (PASS) of SDN/NFV. The cloud-based framework lets test engineers utilize physical and virtual test products of their choice on the platform, including other various test appliances or open source tools, to take advantage of existing investments and resources.
“With its cloud-based design, Spirent Velocity provides our customers a new platform to test a new generation of virtualized devices,” said Patrick Johnson, vice president of Cloud and Virtual Solutions at Spirent Communication. “With Spirent Velocity, enterprises, service providers and network equipment manufacturers are able to build out a predictable and repeatable virtual test environment that ensures they qualify their systems for performance and scalability with confidence, while minimizing the investment needed in test equipment or expertise.”

In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
