Company Background

Load DynamiX, originally called SwiftTest, was founded to meet the needs of storage technology vendors who were looking for a better way to understand how different applications and workloads affect the performance of their products. These vendors have used the resulting insight to dramatically improve the scalability and reliability of their storage systems.  Today, Load DynamiX is used by every major storage vendor and most storage start-ups.

“Using Load DynamiX has limited our downtime and gives us a huge cost benefit. We’re maximizing the use of the storage arrays and configuring them in the most efficient way.”

— Brian Walker, Principal Architect

Over time, the storage vendors started bringing Load DynamiX into their enterprise accounts to prove the performance capabilities and value of their products.  Due to the increasingly complex nature of the modern data center and the move to Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas), IT organizations needed a solution that helps them optimize the performance, availability and cost-effectiveness of storage infrastructure.  Load DynamiX has extended its products and services to meet the needs of storage architects and storage engineers, who use our solutions to validate the technology vendors’ assertions, ensure infrastructure performance, mitigate risk, and control constantly increasing storage costs.  As a result, Load DynamiX has been growing nearly 100% annually over the last 3 years.
