Gambit's MIMIC Simulator Provides New Server Simulation Capabilities for Troubleshooting Web, Mail, Wireless Management Applications


Gambit Communications is releasing a new tool, MIMIC Server Simulator. It is designed to create an entire test infrastructure for Enterprise Application testing and evaluation. It simulates thousands of Servers (Web, WMI, HTTP, XML based) along with networking devices like routers and switches.

Nashua, NH, October 02, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Gambit Communications, a leading provider of network and SNMP simulation tools, today announced MIMIC Server Simulator, a new solution to create a complete virtual infrastructure with servers and networking devices. This functionality is part of the new release of Gambit's MIMIC Simulator Suite 10.00.

MIMIC Server Simulator simulates Web (HTTP), WMI (WBEM), Mail (SMTP), DNS and many other servers to test and evaluate how well enterprise applications work with the entire infrastructure. This extends MIMIC's network environment simulation capabilities. MIMIC Server Simulator is the newest addition to the MIMIC® Simulator Suite.

"The MIMIC Server Simulator really rounds out Gambit's solution for Enterprise
Application testing," said Jim Frey, research director at Enterprise Management Associates. "More and more management tools and suites are bringing together network and systems management into combined solutions, and those technology providers need the ability to simulate the complex, mixed environments where their products will be put to use. Already the leader for SNMP simulation and test, Gambit's MIMIC suite becomes much more powerful when adding the ability to simulate large numbers of servers in parallel with many multiple network elements -- all under varying operational conditions and states."

"Our server management solution, ServerIR, uses both SNMP and WMI to monitor servers. It is designed to handle large scale infrastructures with thousands of servers. Obviously, we need to be able to verify the scalability of our solution and test the performance impact of new features prior to deployment on customer premises" said David Kaufman, Founder and President of ISaccountable. "With the addition of the server simulator to Gambit's MIMIC Simulator Suite, we can now exercise product scalability with minimal investment of time or equipment. We are looking forward to leveraging the new MIMIC version 10.00 capabilities."

MIMIC Server Simulator simulates thousands of servers to easily test, develop and demo client applications. MIMIC Server Simulator, along with MIMIC SNMP Simulator enables you to create a virtual lab with up to 20,000 servers along with networking devices. MIMIC Simulator 10.00's new offering includes:

* Server Simulator
- Simulates server farms for testing and training of Web based management
applications, Load balancers for Web servers, Mail applications, DNS and File Transfer clients.
- Allows testing with thousands of servers having different IP or IPv6 addresses.
- User-friendly graphical interface allows easy and intuitive setup of the test
environment.
- Simulates servers as if they are located at geographically separate locations or countries.
- Add delays or drop packets to create remote or bad links.

* IPMI multi-session support: Now the IPMI module fully supports multiple
simultaneous sessions.
* Telnet Terminal length support:MIMIC negotiates terminal length with the Telnet server to show the command output correctly no matter what terminal size the user has.

Availability
MIMIC Simulator 10.00 is available immediately from Gambit.
