iTrinegy Pitches IT Transformation

By Doug Barney

iTrinegy may be best known for its network emulation tools that include the ability to fully emulate a cloud apps before you actually commit to it. Now the company wants to do far more, and its ambition is no less than to support wide-scale IT transformation.

The approach is to consolidate the core iTrinegy offers into a single system that in turn will help IT migrate applications to where they are best suited – in many cases the cloud. The new integrated suite “will provide any company considering a major data center rationalization or continuing their migration of networked applications into a virtualized or cloud environment, with a complete toolset to understand where the problems are in their existing environment and ensure applications will work in the new production environment,” the company said.

This is all encompassed in the iTrinegy Transformation Suite, which lets shops test their cloud transformation before they embark on them. “The tools will allow clients to test in an accurate replication of their production environment, to ensure that mission-critical applications will work across all types of network infrastructure and technologies. As importantly, the tools also help to accurately demonstrate how end-users or customers will experience the new changes on their chosen devices,” the company said.

iTrinegy already offered core capabilities in what it calls ‘Cloud in a Box.’ This is based on a

network emulation appliance that can be used for proof of concept for cloud apps. It directly mimics your on-premises environment in the cloud to see how that infrastructure will perform in the hands of a service provider. Large shops can use the appliance to suss out potential providers, and MSPs can use it to demonstrate how exactly their apps will perform on their network.

The 'Cloud in a Box' is a pre-deployment service that does much the same thing, letting customers themselves see precisely how their applications will behave in the cloud, and test apps against multiple cloud providers. The service will detail issues with the network that could negatively impact the app running in the cloud.

The vendor says customers nudged it in this direction. “We were increasingly being brought into a customer site after their applications have been moved to the new network (Cloud) to look at performance issues, Experience shows that applications that have been developed for a LAN can be very poor performing when moved to a WAN type environment like the Cloud,” said Frank Puranik, Product Director at iTrinegy. “When spending money it's smart to know exactly what will happen to your business applications prior to actual deployment, as retrospective remedial actions can cost companies hundreds or even thousands of pounds and damage reputations. Now we can de-risk these Cloud moves in advance and so ensure the transition goes smoothly.”

iTrinegy argues that many IT shops just wing it when moving to the cloud, that pre-deployment testing was too hard and too expensive since shops had to build a physical facsimile of their current network. 'Cloud in a box,’ as a service, is a virtual representation of that network.
