Turning Data into Answers

Virtual Instruments is the leader in Infrastructure Performance Management for physical, virtual and cloud compute environments. By providing visibility to real-time performance, health and utilization metrics from the VM to the LUN, VirtualWisdom drives improved performance and availability while lowering the total cost of the infrastructure supporting mission critical applications.

The VirtualWisdom platform is composed of a fully integrated combination of software and hardware probes and the VirtualWisdom Platform Appliance running Applied Analytics software.

  • Platform Appliance collects real-time data and correlates VM server, SAN network, and I/O metrics from the Probes, into a complete view of end-to-end system between virtual machines and the storage environment.
  • Hardware-based SAN Performance Probes are the most advanced, high capacity line-rate data inspection and wire-data analysis devices available.
  • Software-based Availability Probes gather switch and VM metrics that are correlated with hardware probe metrics

Load DynamiX Enterprise


The secret weapon for storage architects

The Load DynamiX storage performance analytics solution is comprised of a software application, Load DynamiX Enterprise, and appliances for workload generation and workload acquisition. The solution is used to validate storage infrastructure performance and understand how changes in application workload behavior affect storage performance. It’s an integrated solution for workload acquisition, workload analysis, workload modeling and workload performance analytics.

Load Dynamix Enterprise provides massive scalability and superior realism:

  • Simplified workload analysis, modeling, and performance analytics
  • Workload Generation Appliances emulate the largest production workloads at full wire rate – up to 8M IOPS
  • Workload Sensors capture workload data, analyze that data, enable workload replay in your lab
Load DynamiX Enterprise

Over 40 of the Fortune 100 use VI...and counting.

  • VirtualWisdom gives us the visibility we need to pinpoint and resolve problems in real time—and to identify and prevent issues before they turn into problems.

    Martin Lippert, EVP & Head of MetLife Global Technology & Operations
  • Now our teams are able to proactively mitigate risks in our environment by quickly pinpointing the root cause and identifying priority issues so we can address them immediately, before they can have an impact on service delivery.

    Scott Anderson, VP of Compute Services, HP
  • VirtualWisdom allows you to dig in and understand why applications are behaving as they are, and where potential problems lie…we can make strategic investments based on sound performance information.

    Simon Close, Head of Storage, WM Morrisons
