The WorkloadWisdom Block Storage performance validation solution provides coverage for all widely supported Block storage protocols – Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCoE, and in OpenStack deployments, Cinder.
The solution is designed to assess the maximum capacity and speed of shared Block storage infrastructures, servers and arrays. WorkloadWisdom generates highly stressful and realistic requests to the storage systems. We then measure the performance, scalability, and response times of the systems in handling these requests, and verify the integrity of the stored Blocks’ contents.
Almost all SAN storage vendors avoid SAN problems by using Virtual Instruments internally to help validate block storage performance and scalability in their test, development, and performance engineering labs.
