Validating Data Center Microsegmentation
Virtualization took marketing’s microsegmentation concept and applied it to modern data centers, using a collection of virtual machines or containers to segment data centers by their meaningful workloads. With workloads classified by the specific functions they serve (like web, application, database, services workloads), organizations can specify security measures relevant to each workload type. But data center operators are finding that testing the security and performance of these specialized workloads is difficult. This document will help you understand the challenges of testing data center segmentation and how Ixia's BreakingPoint Virtual Edition (VE) can help.
