The WorkloadWisdom SNIA / CDMI Storage performance validation solution is designed to assess the maximum capacity and speed of CDMI cloud storage infrastructures, servers and arrays. WorkloadWisdom accomplishes this by emulating up to millions of CDMI 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.
