EMC data center integration partner AdvizeX wanted to prove that a proposed next generation storage solution. The challenge was to provide critical insight needed to ensure the performance and cost-effectiveness of the next generation storage solution while substantially reducing the risk of deploying new technology. To run the performance validation, Load DynamiX software and hardware were used in conjunction with professional services. A test project was created that implemented the desired workload, including the writing of 24 files of 100MB each to the cluster, which were read by 10 clients each. There were 50 files in each of the 10 subdirectories. Emulate the insurance company's application workloads and generate worst case loading that was successfully run against the proposed clustered NAS solution.
