EMC Isilon ICAP Scalability and  Qualification

A First to Market Solution to Qualify ICAP Scaling for EMC Isilon

Superna has developed an ICAP Anti Virus scanning platform that simulates 100's to 1000's of end users reading, writing, file based content that needs to be scanned.  As file based content grows, there is a need to scan larger and larger volumes of file based content using the Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP)  a lightweight HTTP-like protocol specified in RFC 3507 which is used to extend transparent proxy servers, thereby freeing up resources and standardizing the way in which new features are implemented (source: Internet Content Adaptation Protocol - Wikipedia).

Service Features:

  • The service assists Software AV vendors validate performance of their ICAP enabled products
  • Delivers scalability test report on the performance of the AV engine under various load configurations
  • Verifies interoperability with the market leading NAS solution from EMC on the Isilon platform

The testbed that is set up is shown below.  This has been successfully executed with security and virus scanning software solutions.
