MIMIC Simulator Promotion

We are happy to announce a special promotion for our loyal
customers to upgrade their MIMIC Simulator license.

With this promotion, you can upgrade your current MIMIC Simulator
to any higher number of agent license at 50% of the cost.

For example, to upgrade -
MIMIC Professional (250 Agents) license:
To MIMIC Campus (500 Agents) - $2,500 (Normally $5,000)
To MIMIC Enterprise (1000 Agents) - $4,000 (Normally $8,000)

That is only $10 per device for 250 more devices or
$5.33 per device for 750 more devices.

Now you can upgrade your MIMIC Simulator up to 100,000 agents at a
much lower price. You can test the scalability of your management
application beyond previous limits.

This promotion is valid until September 15th, 2014.
Your MIMIC license needs to be under a valid support contract.

MIMIC NetFlow Simulator recreates Smurf DDOS attack

FYI, we have recently posted a demo video to our video library to
show how MIMIC NetFlow Simulator generates flows simulating
a Smurf DDOS attack, with Plixer's Scrutinizer showing the problem.

OpenNMS discovers 500 simulated devices

MIMIC SNMP Simulator simulates 500 devices, and we discover them with
OpenNMS on a 4-CPU virtual machine with 12GB RAM, with this precise inventory

first router = 1
second level routers that connect to first router = 17
third level switches that connect to second level routers = 82
fourth level end systems of phones, Windows and printers = 400

A 16GB RAM VM is not enough for OpenNMS to discover 1000 simulated
devices.  With MIMIC, you can easily test scalability of your NMS
deployment.

Dynamic IPMI simulation

FYI, we recently have added to our library this video to demonstrate
MIMIC IPMI Simulator changing a Cisco HCS simulation in real-time:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb8VY8_JVYk

As anyone who has had to deal with static sensors, it is hard to change
them on demand. In the video, we are changing a temperature sensor
at deterministic points in time to specific values. Try that with a blow
torch!

Who to blame when your "smart" appliances do not work

Samsung recently had a data center outage, causing one frustrated
customer of their "smart" TV to reverse engineer why their TV would not
work despite a fully functioning Internet connection:

Having a single point of failure for your "smart" appliance may be just
an inconvenience in the case of TV service, but likely would have bigger
repercussions for energy, health, food, industrial and defense sectors.






MIMIC Web Simulator is particularly suited to simulate scenarios for
disaster recovery. Debug your web services applications before your
customers have to.
