  • 1. Simulating Live Cyber Attacks and ApplicationTraffic to Measure Private Cloud Resiliency
  • 2. Agenda•  Benefits of Private Cloud Deployment: An Introduction to Global Pharmaceutical Company, Pharma Inc.•  Legacy Testing & Risks•  Steps to Testing and Measuring Private Cloud Resiliency•  Demonstration•  Lessons Learned and Results 2
  • 3. Case Study: Pharma Inc.•  A top pharmaceutical organization was interested in testing the resiliency of its private cloud applications.•  Goals: •  Perform low cost, advanced research •  Build a higher performing network that was resilient to attack and massive user load •  Understand capacity of current infrastructure and plan for growth •  Validate network equipment devices and systems 3
  • 4. Challenges of Measuring ResiliencyCloud computing is marked by constant evolution. •  Application protocol updates •  Advanced Persistent ThreatsFunctional testing is necessary, but not sufficient. •  Require enormous test infrastructure to generate traffic volume. •  Test with stateless traffic. •  Require add-on testing products to simulate security attacks and malformed traffic. 4
  • 5. 3 Steps to Measuring Private Cloud Resiliency1.  Functional Testing2.  Enhance Functional Testing with Load3.  Testing Performance and Security Under Load 5
  • 6. Functional Testing 6
  • 7. Enhance Functional Testing with Load 7
  • 8. Testing Performance and Security Under Load 8
  • 9. Demonstration 9
  • 10. Lessons Learned1.  Functional testing is not sufficient •  Organizations must test and measure performance and security under real world conditions to validate their cloud infrastructure •  Infrastructure must be tested at extreme current and future load, not in a sterile environment to determine capacity2.  Enhance functional testing with load •  Growing application traffic can put a strain on network infrastructures •  Organizations must know how their network will perform with their unique mix application traffic3.  Testing both performance and security •  Security and performance testing cannot be performed in isolation •  Live security attacks and malformed packets must be used to validate security and identify vulnerabilities 10
  • 11. Pharma Inc. Results•  Precise analysis of resiliency and capacity under real world conditions allowed Pharma Inc. to optimize their private cloud deployment with: •  Improved ability to plan for production rollout •  Insight to improve performance of cloud applications and address critical security vulnerabilities •  Reduction of planned load testing investment by 80% 11
