Figuring out which storage system is the most cost-effective for your different application workloads has never been easier. Understanding how far your storage investments can stretch and still meet performance requirements should be priority one. What happens when unexpected events occur, when you have not adequately planned for scale? This is where WorkloadWisdom comes in. Regardless of which storage technology you use (FC, iSCSI, NFS, SMB, Object, Cloud), WorkloadWisdom validates workload performance, using your own production workload data, and assures software updates and changes will not degrade your production deployments. WorkloadWisdom will quickly become your most valuable pre-production asset.
WorkloadWisdom has the same powerful features our Load DynamiX Enterprise customers are familiar with wrapped in an updated user interface that simplifies the workload performance testing process. More data and faster access to results across an easy-to-share, collaborative framework for enterprise storage professionals.
Example of imported production application workloads with immediate user visualizations to understand and gain control over workload behaviors and placements directly from SMBv3 workloads.
The example screen shot below compares latency on Flash targets with various loads to help predict how high performance Flash storage will support application growth.
Analyze performance via simple, customizable graphical outputs. In this screenshot, you can see the variability of the performance of the tested application. WorkloadWisdom collects thousands of metrics every second, analyzes the relevant workload data, and offers extensive charting and reporting capabilities. The most useful results typically include the charts on latency, throughput and IOPS that enable the visual analysis of performance data resulting from different load parameters, access patterns, data content types and configuration changes.
Our Workload Generators are capable of emulating extreme, complex traffic loads. They offer detailed performance emulation of storage protocols that provide rich, accurate representations of workloads across File, Block and Object / Cloud storage.
Lower your testing costs by unifying storage validation processes with a solution capable of generating millions of IOPS from a single 2U platform.
Consider using our virtual generator, offering an aggregate 4Gbps throughput for fully functional testing on less performance intensive IP networks.
WorkloadWisdom offers better insight into how workload behavior affects storage system performance than traditional approaches (including freeware tools), including:
“WorkloadWisdom is like Iometer on steroids! I can test 5 different storage arrays simultaneously, configure a base workload and test it, and then change the attributes on a workload and test again. I’m so much more efficient using WorkloadWisdom – I’ll never go back to freeware tools again.”
