This major storage technology vendor contains multi-petabyte scale-out NAS storage systems for information storage and distribution. This customer perspective requires and flexibility to easily set up a wide variety of scenarios. Combine this need to change configurations and complete test cycles quickly, with the requirement for millions of TCP connections and GB of traffic per second, and the users will have a big headache. The Load DynamiX 1G Series is a high-performance load-generating system designed for comprehensive storage network testing. Results were immediately realized with a 5-to-1 port reduction after using Load DynamiX to generate the equivalent traffic. Under equal workload, a single Load DynamiX interface is now the same as 5-6 previous interfaces or 5 ports on their old 2U client machines.
