GoGrid Enables Compuware to Provide Industrys First Free IPv6 Website Performance Comparison Test

  (June 08, 2011)

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2011

In recognition of World IPv6 Day, GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced that Compuware Corporation is using its cloud infrastructure to run the industrys first free IPv6 Website Performance Comparison Test. The free Compuware Gomez IPv6 Website Performance Comparison Test is available here.

With IPv4 addresses in low supply globally, corporations must begin implementing migration plans to handle the new IPv6 protocol and mitigate potential decreased network functionality. GoGrid is currently executing a comprehensive IPv6 roadmap, and the Compuware project is one of the first to leverage GoGrids IPv6 infrastructure.

One of the key enablers for IPv6 adoption is the supporting Internet infrastructure, said Steve Tack, Chief Technology Officer of Compuwares APM Business Unit. With GoGrids IPv6 Cloud, Compuware can help companies that want to easily compare the performance of their IPv4 and IPv6 websites.


The Gomez IPv6 Website Performance Comparison Test also creates a screen capture of the IPv6 and IPv4 pages as presented in an actual browser.

As a cloud infrastructure provider, enabling IPv6 within a cloud environment is an inevitability and we believe that our proof of concept with Compuware clearly demonstrates that we are positioned to grow beyond the limitations of IPv4, said Mark Worsey, CIO of GoGrid. We provision blocks of IP addresses on a daily basis for our customers and by developing interoperability with IPv6, GoGrid is better positioned for scalability and growth.

GoGrid expects to have full IPv6 compatibility for all GoGrid users by the end of 2011.
