BGV Portfolio Company Load DynamiX Wins Storage Management “Product of the Year” Award By Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com
Ability to ensure storage performance and drive big storage savings leads to Storage Management Tools ‘Product of the Year’ Accolades SANTA CLARA, CA, Feb 19, 2014, — Load DynamiX, the leader in infrastructure performance validation, announced that its storage performance validation solution won the ‘Product of the Year’ Gold award in the Storage Management Tools category by the editors of Storage Magazine / Searchstorage.com. The industry’s first enterprise-focused storage workload modeling and analytics solution won over top-tier solutions from Brocade, Dell, EMC, VMTurbo and Symantec. “The ability of Load DynamiX to generate massive loads to test and stress enterprise storage systems makes it a winner — especially at a time when storage professionals are looking to mitigate risky equipment deployments,” stated the Tech Target judging panel. “Indeed, this is just the sort of product IT professionals were talking about in 2013, when the U.S. government healthcare website was introduced without proper load testing and failed miserably in its debut.” When evaluating the Load DynamiX product suite, the panelists highlighted its broad protocol support, a drag-and-drop user interface and actionable reports that can, in the opinion of one judge, “drive big storage savings and cost reductions.” Load DynamiX helps organizations “avoid over provisioning costly storage infrastructure” by determining in advance “whether a given storage upgrade, component or firmware release will perform and operate properly in a production environment,” another judge said. “When we introduced our products focused on validating the performance of enterprise storage technologies in November of 2013, we knew the timing was right. Enterprises and cloud service providers are migrating to an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model where performance of the shared infrastructure is essential,” said Philippe Vincent, president and CEO of Load DynamiX. “This acknowledgement re-enforces our product direction and belief that storage architects must properly test and evaluate the performance of their storage acquisitions before production implementation.” About Load DynamiX As the leader in infrastructure performance validation, Load DynamiX empowers IT professionals with the insight needed to make intelligent decisions regarding networked storage.
