The Load DynamiX Enterprise OpenStack Storage performance validation solution provides coverage for two widely supported OpenStack storage protocols – Swift and Cinder, and we’re closely tracking the progress of Manila certification. Testing for both Swift and Cinder is supported on a Ceph storage platform, via LIO for Cinder and RGW for Swift. Many Ceph users have engaged us for Ceph OpenStack performance validation.
The solution is designed to assess the maximum capacity and speed of object and block storage infrastructures, servers and arrays. Load DynamiX Enterprise emulates up to millions of Swift and Cinder clients generating highly stressful and realistic requests to the servers. We then measure the performance, scalability, and response times of the servers in handling these requests, and verify the integrity of the stored contents.
Save millions of dollars and avert performance risks by testing OpenStack storage systems
