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

Creates scalable, extensible and configurable test and evaluation environment

For Immediate Release: October 1, 2009 -- 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:

MIMIC Simulator 10.00 is available immediately from Gambit.
