“We were tired of ‘testing’ our networked storage in production. Load DynamiX gives us the insight we need to control our costs and sleep at night knowing our storage will perform in production.”

— Justin Richardson,
Storage Architect,
Go Daddy

Go Daddy uses Load DynamiX to determine an optimal balance of better, faster, and cheaper storage technologies to control costs and optimize service.  They are moving to lower cost storage and boosting performance by integrating flash/SSDs into their storage architecture.

F50 Diversified Manufacturer

Load DynamiX provided this manufacturer with the critical insight needed to optimize the performance and cost-effectiveness of their next generation storage infrastructure while substantially reducing the risk of deploying new technology.

F100 Insurance & Financial Services Company

This F100 Insurance company was able to achieve their storage performance objectives by using Load DynamiX to accurately model their application workloads and determine the system’s breaking points before production deployment.

Case Studies for Storage & Network Technology Vendors

Avere Systems

Load DynamiX enables Avere Systems to achieve significant cost savings when testing their high performance, tiered NAS appliances by automating more functions, enabling simultaneous tests, and isolating problems faster than ever.

“Aggregation of results is our enemy. With Load DynamiX we can trace, track, and compare anything — all the protocol-level details we want.”

— Steve Downer, Director of Test Engineering, Oracle

Exinda

The global supplier of next generation WAN optimization products used to require a half day or more to run a single test case. With the Load DynamiX solution, the same test case now only takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete — a 10x improvement in efficiency.

F5 Networks

The global leader in application delivery uses Load DynamiX to cut their BIG-IP WAN acceleration technology testing time in half. Finally, F5 can scale their test scenarios to realistically simulate customer environments.

Hitachi (formerly BlueArc)

Hitachi was seeking a way to effectively test their storage platforms for real-world scalability. Load DynamiX now handles high-performance load testing for the company while maintaining the connection level required by their highly-scalable platforms.

Riverbed Technology

Load DynamiX enables Riverbed to more effectively test CIFS scalability, extending well beyond the capabilities of in-house tools. Riverbed uses Load DynamiX to perform tests much more easily, faster, and with fewer hardware resources than before.
