New York, NY (PRWEB) April 6, 2007
Driven by strong demand from small and medium-sized businesses, Shunra today announced its Shunra VE SMB Edition network simulation product. Shunra VE SMB Edition is a software version of the company's award-winning enterprise-scale Shunra VE hardware solution. It simulates a point-to-point network link, enabling users to test the performance of critical business applications under existing and/or projected network conditions - without the risk, cost, or logistical complexity of testing over the production WAN. With Shunra VE SMB Edition, users see exactly how applications perform at remote end users' desktops, and can find and fix problems as well as determine network capacity requirements - all before rollout into production. Shunra VE SMB Edition is used by companies such as Alcon, Digital Harbor, go2call, GFI, Flarion, Tetra Pak, The Carphone Warehouse, and the US Peace Corps. A free trial version of Shunra VE SMB Edition is available at: http://www.shunra.com/shunra_ve_smb_free_trial.
"Small and medium-sized businesses have the same network-related application performance problems as large enterprises, but they lack the products to test and solve these problems," said Thomas Charlton, Shunra's CEO. "The launch of Shunra VE SMB Edition was driven by strong demand from smaller enterprises for a version of our best-in-class network simulation software technology that is tailored to meet their specific needs. Shunra VE SMB Edition provides these businesses with the right solution at the right price. It enables them to test application performance over the network and ensure service levels to remote end users -- before rollout -- and thus avoid post-deployment performance problems, troubleshooting and project overrun costs."
Shunra VE SMB Edition is designed and priced specifically for small and medium-sized businesses. The software is easy to deploy and use, and does not require any ramp-up time or training. It can be installed on a client, server, or on a dual NIC PC to act as a router-based WAN simulator. Shunra VE SMB Edition simulates all the impairments that characterize a typical production network, including latency, packet loss, jitter, router queue management algorithms, and bandwidth constraints up to 10 Mbps. All tests are fully customizable, repeatable, and can be automated.
Shunra VE SMB Edition also includes Shunra's unique VE Network Catcher technology which captures and replays production network conditions, enabling users to easily recreate a network environment that is as true-to-life as possible. Furthermore, Shunra VE SMB Edition delivers easy-to-read reports that clearly identify the root causes of application and network performance problems.
In addition to Shunra VE SMB Edition, Shunra's network simulation product family includes Shunra VE, its flagship solution for large enterprises. Used by companies such as Elizabeth Arden, Halliburton, Hilton, Mary Kay, Shell, Toyota and Washington Mutual, Shunra VE simulates a global network environment in the pre-deployment lab so that users can test the performance of applications and infrastructure under a wide variety of network impairments, topologies and technologies, as if they were running in a real production environment. The family also includes Shunra VE Desktop Standard Edition, which is a PC-based standalone network simulation software application for developers, and Shunra VE Desktop Professional Edition, a software-based client/server solution for multiple users in the development team.
"With Shunra VE SMB Edition, we round out our family of software and hardware network simulation products. We now deliver the full range of network simulation solutions needed to support the application lifecycle at any organization -- from small businesses to multinational enterprises. None of our competitors have either the breadth or the depth of software and hardware solutions we have, which reinforces, yet again, our leadership of the industry," stated Charlton.
