Calgary, AB (PRWEB) October 21, 2014
Less than one year since the launch of the company’s record-breaking crowdfunding campaign, GNS3 Technologies is pleased to announce the world’s first free multi-vendor network simulation tool. The GNS3 software provides a virtual environment to design, test and optimize networks without having to purchase a single piece of hardware, eliminating the need for expensive physical testing and configuration labs. One in every five network professionals in the world uses the GNS3 software at leading organizations such as Walmart, Exxon, Twitter, AT&T, NASA and the US Department of Defense.
“GNS3 has saved Auvik a great deal of time, money, and frustration,” said Marc Morin, CEO of Auvik Networks. "To make sure our network management software works flawlessly out in the real world, we need to continually test our product against a wide variety of possible network configurations. GNS3 helped us create a product we know will be practical and relevant to our customers.”
GNS3 is also launching a collaborative community and social platform for network professionals – the “GNS3 Jungle.” The GNS3 Jungle is a central hub for troubleshooting network design and will offer network vendors and service providers the ability to promote products and services. Vendors will have access to an audience of over two million network professionals who represent approximately $250 billion in annual spending on network equipment and services. Several active beta customers who are using GNS3 Jungle have already experienced positive feedback and uptake within the community.
“Our biggest asset is our community, therefore we want to continue providing our users with the software for free. In addition, we want to provide relevant content and media to assist them in their decision-making and purchasing process,” said Stephen Guppy, CEO of GNS3. “Our initial beta customers have seen a tremendous response in engaging with millions of network professionals using GNS3. We are looking forward to working with more vendors in the coming months.”
