  1. 1. SHUNRA VE - WAN Emulation Solution Shunra Virtual Enterprise Know exactly how your business applications and network services will perform for remote end users before rollout! Recreate Any Production Network In Minutes Shunra VE is the only WAN Shunra Virtual Enterprise (VE) delivers a highly robust, comprehensive WAN Emulation solution Emulation solution that that creates a virtual network environment in your pre-deployment lab. It delivers a powerful, enables you to: flexible and easy way to test the performance of your application and network equipment under a wide variety of network impairments – exactly as if they were running in a real world production » Easily integrate with your environment. automated HP LoadRunner testing environment. Using Shunra VE you will understand the impact that the network and applications have on each other’s performance and on the remote end-users’ experiences, as well as uncover and resolve » Conduct business transaction production-related problems – before rollout. analysis, using an open API for use by third party testing tools. Shunra VE provides a wide range of graphically rich reports and drill-down analysis capabilities. These help you isolate and resolve the root causes of network and application problems early, and » Know exactly how new determine whether any modifications to the application, network, or infrastructure are needed. or updated application or network services will perform Shunra VE gives you the information you need to make informed decisions – throughout the for remote end users – application development lifecycle - and ensure service levels to remote end-users are achieved. throughout the development Eliminate the Need to Deploy Load Generators Remotely lifecycle. Up until now, load testing tools have had a major blind spot – the network. Since the primary aim » Eliminate phased rollouts to is to focus on application performance, the network often takes a back seat. Shunra provides a remote end users and avoid a solution that is HP-Certified and the only one of its kind – VE Desktop for HP Software. We now fix-as-you-go approach. offer HP LoadRunner and HP Performance Center customers with a WAN emulation option to » Troubleshoot post-production test network impairments over the WAN while load testing. Adding WAN emulation to your HP problems and verify resolution, LoadRunner purchase can save you time and money on deployment of remote load generators. quickly and easily. Build a bridge between application performance and network efficiency, with accurate, reliable, and repeatable results! Shunra Virtual Enterprise is ideal for: Infrastructure Projects Testing Projects » Data center or server consolidation » Pre-deployment testing for enterprise » Network and server capacity planning applications such as Oracle, SAP and Microsoft » Application rollouts » Vendor equipment evaluations » VoIP testing » Exposing issues with application code » Virtualization » Post-deployment troubleshooting » WAN optimization » Wireless/cellular and satellite network testing » Active directory deployments » eCommerce and internet testing » Email migrations » Application offshoring » Website testing » Network performance change » Disaster recovery and business continuity control management
  2. 2. SHUNRA VE - WAN Emulation Solution The Shunra VE Appliance combines high performance hardware Flexible Network Modeling & Design with easy-to-use, innovative software. This creates a powerful WAN The Shunra VE network appliance is controlled through a highly emulation solution that includes detailed reports and root cause intuitive and easy-to-use Microsoft Visio®-based modeler. The analysis. Shunra VE is extremely easy to install, configure, and use. It modeler gives you complete flexibility to create any network also seamlessly integrates with your existing infrastructure and lab topology, any way you want. environment. VE Appliance for WAN Emulation At the heart of Shunra VE is a high performance, scalable network appliance that functions as a bridge or router. It changes the speed at which network traffic travels through the network, exposing data packets to the same network impairments to which they would be subjected to on the wide area network. Shunra VE Modeler Once you’ve created your network model, you simply press the play button to activate your test scenario. At this point, any application, network service or infrastructure connected to the appliance will behave as if it were subjected to the conditions defined in the model. You will immediately “see and feel” exactly how remote end-users The STN appliance limits bandwidth and impairs multiple traffic flows using 10/100 Mbps and 1 Gbps Ethernet interfaces. will experience your application under production conditions! You can edit any network parameter at any time, to create current, Shunra’s STA is the market’s first Network Processor- future, worst case or “what-if” scenarios. You can also replay or based WAN Emulation solution providing both reconfigure these scenarios over and over again to try out alternative wire speed performance and deep packet inspection solutions, verify problem resolution, and compare performance (DPI) capabilities. among different versions or technologies. What VMware does for the data center, Shunra does for the production network. Scott Moore, President - Loadtester Inc. Capture & Replay Production Network Conditions The STA appliance limits bandwidth and impairs multiple traffic flows using 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ethernet interfaces. Shunra VE’s network recording software captures and imports production network conditions, such as latency, jitter and packet loss, directly into your network model. When the Shunra VE “Sub-second transaction execution is absolutely critical in application replays these recordings it recreates the exact same electronic foreign exchange trading, and Shunra VE helps us conditions that exist on the production network so that you can test consistently ensure optimal performance for our users before we your applications under the most real life conditions possible. deploy the platform in production. Recreate & Troubleshoot Post-Deployment Problems Using Shunra VE during the development process to understand Shunra VE is also ideal for troubleshooting production problems and optimize performance in such a demanding environment that occurred in the past. Since Shunra VE stores 30 days worth of – before deployment – provides strategic value to our business. production network conditions, you can simply rewind the recording Without Shunra VE we would feel like we were flying blind.” to the time that the problem occurred and see what happened with the network at that time. With this information you can easily identify Hotspot FX – leading online foreign the source of performance problems – whether in the application or exchange trading marketplace the network and verify the resolution.
  3. 3. SHUNRA VE - WAN Emulation Solution Predict Application Performance for Multiple Deep Analysis & Comprehensive Reports Remote End-Users With every test, Shunra VE provides detailed drill-down analysis VE Predictor evaluates the end-user experience by launching tests and graphically rich diagnostic reports on application and network that include network emulation and end-user load to determine performance. These reports tell you exactly where and when you will if new, modified or existing applications will meet service level have performance problems – in the network or the application. objectives at remote locations. VE Profiler evaluates application network sensitivity. This tool allows users to easily launch test that Shunra VE provides reports and analysis on: determine the application’s sensitivities and breaking points within » Application performance and availability over the network varied network and user load conditions. » Application performance thresholds against a range and combination of network conditions » Individual transaction performance measurements Use VE Predictor to predict transaction response across multiple locations.
