Shunra, a provider of application and network performance assurance solutions, announced that Microsoft Technology Centers (MTC) is expanding its alliance with Shunra, and has selected Shunra Virtual Enterprise (Shunra VE) for its U.S. and European centers. Used by the MTCs as an integral part of proof of concept engagements, Shunra VE now gives MTC enterprise customers the ability to test their distributed applications under production network conditions. This enables MTC customers to accurately determine how their applications will perform at their remote locations prior to deployment, as well as test scalability and migration issues.

Shunra VE is a highly flexible solution that creates an accurate replica of any production network environment including the network, remote locations and network traffic. With Shunra VE, users can safely test the functionality, performance, scalability and robustness of applications and infrastructure under a near limitless variety of current and future real-world network conditions, and discover and resolve problems before deployment in the production environment.

Microsoft Technology Centers provide facilities and resources to enterprise customers primarily in the finance, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, public sector and government industries. These companies use the MTCs when they need to efficiently envision, architect, and demonstrate a secure, customized solution based on Microsoft and technologies from companies such as Dell, F5, EMC, HP, Unisys, and Shunra prior to deployment in their own IT environment.
