Load DynamiX extends its virtual series workload generation appliances

Load DynamiX has announced new versions of its industry-leading Load DynamiX Virtual (LDX-V) Series storage performance validation solutions: Load DynamiX LDX-V Standard and LDX-V Plus.

The company also announced multiple improvements across its product portfolio to assist and support storage architects and engineers in software-defined data centers.

LDX-V products augment the Load DynamiX traditional workload generation solutions with a lower cost, more flexible deployment model to facilitate broader performance and functional testing capabilities at both storage vendors and IT organizations. The LDX-V series now allows for accurate load testing of less performance-intensive storage systems using any x86-based server platform, which will lower the cost of storage performance validation.

Supporting VMware ESXi 5.1 and above, multiple LDX-V instances can be deployed on the same host or distributed across a number of hosts. LDX-V works with Load DynamiX Enterprise 5.0, and has the same software GUI, workflow, statistics, projects and API used by Load DynamiX physical appliances to test File, Block, and Object/Cloud storage systems deployed on IP networks. The new product benefits include:

Load DynamiX is a storage performance analytics innovator, providing unique insight into application workload performance that empowers data storage professionals to optimize costs and assure performance by more intelligently deploying and troubleshooting storage infrastructure. The combination of advanced workload analysis and modeling software with extreme workload generation appliances give IT professionals the ability to cost-effectively validate and stress today´s most complex physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to its limits.
