Load DynamiX capabilities and a conversation with an existing customer, the company decided to go with a Load DynamiX professional services engagement. A suite of test projects was co-created that benchmarked performance under representative workload parameters, and provided "What if" analysis that showed performance under 2X, 3X and 4X loads. Confirmation of which storage arrays would offer the best performance today, and critical insight into storage headroom when increasing data loads.
