Alibaba Cloud Computing selected Spirent Communications for its holistic approach to data center and cloud computing testing. In 2009, Alibaba Group established Alibaba Cloud Computing with the mission of building an advanced data-centric cloud computing service platform.

Alibaba Cloud Computing used Spirent TestCenter™ to conduct a large scale test of its data center and cloud services infrastructure. Specifically, Spirent TestCenter was used to validate the performance of routers and switches in a large-scale cloud environment, as well as conduct Layer 4-7 application testing.

“Cloud services providers are concerned about the user quality of experience,” said Gene Zhang, vice president, Asia at Spirent Communications. “Alibaba’s decision to conduct comprehensive testing before delivering cloud computing services is a sound business decision since it provides the required empirical data to determine the required service levels Alibaba expects of cloud service solutions. By leveraging Spirent’s holistic cloud computing test solution, Alibaba will enable its customers to leverage the business benefits of elastic computing.”

Spirent offers the industry’s first holistic, end-to-end solution to validate tomorrow’s data centers’ and cloud infrastructures’ performance, availability, security and scalability (PASS). The Spirent PASS methodology includes both physical and virtual appliances specifically designed to test services and infrastructure between any points in the cloud environment.
