The Load DynamiX Enterprise 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.
The Load DynamiX Enterprise product suite was purpose-built to simplify the life of the storage professional
Why you should use Load DynamiX Enterprise
CUT STORAGE COSTS UP TO 60%
Stop unnecessarily over-provisioning storage
Predict how your storage will perform in production
Capture and replay your workloads in the lab
Load DynamiX Enterprise
Load DynamiX Enterprise is a software application that analyzes production storage workloads, models workloads, creates what-if testing scenarios, and produces workload performance analytics. It enables workload visibility into storage infrastructure by working with Workload Sensors, the Workload Data Importer, and Workload Generation Appliances. Load DynamiX Enterprise allows you to:
Until now, there have been two ways of doing workload modeling, quickly with terrible realism, or slowly and painfully with better realism. For the first time, you can now do incredibly realistic models quickly and programmatically. What used to take days or weeks can now be done in an hour or two. The Workload Data Importer model ingests files directly from your production array and builds the performance model for you. Or, with VirtualWisdom Performance Probes, storage teams can deliver even greater realism to the Data Importer, through capture of many more metrics.
Load DynamiX Workload Generation and Workload Acquisition Appliances
Purpose-built Load DynamiX Enterprise workload generation appliances generate massive traffic loads that can test the performance and scalability limits of any file, block or object storage system in pre-production environments. The 2U appliances and Virtual Series version are used to generate traffic based on workload models and access patterns configured by Load DynamiX Enterprise software.
Load DynamiX Enterprise offers the widest breadth of File, Block and Object protocol emulation in the industry. The product suite allows users to build realistic SAN, NAS and Object workloads at scale to test storage networks, unified storage, and switching fabrics. The Load DynamiX Enterprise solution empowers IT managers to replicate all major real world use-cases involving mixtures of file, block and object protocols generated simultaneously from a single interface.
Become the data center hero
Workload Modeling Simulate the I/O profiles of your production environment. When creating a workload model, users start by characterizing their existing or planned application workloads. For situations where an existing production environment can serve as reference, a precise workload model can be automatically derived from production storage systems.
Performance Profiling Fully characterize performance of arrays under wide variety of load parameters. This methodology provides storage teams with a map of the behavior of the storage system – making it easy to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the array and which workload attributes most directly affect performance.
