GE originally turned to Load DynamiX to help resolve an important application performance problem. Difficult to resolve I/O performance problem with a highly visible business intelligence application prompted the GE team to search for storage infrastructure performance optimization solutions. They chose Load DynamiX to overcome these challenges. They would then generate that workload with the Load DynamiX 1G Series appliance and apply it to a variety of storage targets from EMC, NetApp and Dell to determine which storage systems and configurations would best support their demanding application workloads. The results of implementing Load DynamiX were standardized storage testing, performance assurance; limits known pre-production and storage purchasing optimized for cost/benefit.
