SwiftTest Collaborates with EMC for Storage Workload Modeling
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
SwiftTest, the leader in infrastructure
performance validation, today announced its inclusion in the EMC (News - Alert)®
Technology Partner Program. The integration between the SwiftTest
workload modeling and performance validation solution and EMC's VNX®,
VNXe® and Isilon® products enables users to
accelerate the deployment of new storage infrastructure while ensuring
maximum application performance.
Offering a robust performance validation solution across file, block and
object storage, SwiftTest can stress storage infrastructure to its
limits with highly accurate workload models that scale to any data
center requirement. The innovative solution allows storage architects to
emulate their specific application workloads based on I/O profiles,
including metadata operations, and fully test their storage systems and
new storage technologies before they are deployed into production.
"We are delighted to join the EMC Technology Partner Program and are
excited to work with our mutual customers to help them evolve toward a
more efficient deployment process," said Kalen Kimm, business
development director at SwiftTest. "By integrating SwiftTest with EMC
olutions, IT organizations can more efficiently acquire and size their
storage infrastructure based on actual performance requirements."
A SwiftTest performance validation solution is an integral part of
building a cost-effective storage infrastructure that can maximize the
performance and availability of the latest EMC storage technologies.
Leading EMC integration partner Advizex recently used SwiftTest to
ensure its proposed Isilon storage deployment would deploy smoothly
without any performance degradations to its end users. "Our client's
production environment is very complex with strict response time
requirements," said vice president of technology solutions Paul
Timmerman at Advizex. "By first emulating their production workload in
the SwiftTest environment, we were able to detect application
bottlenecks and drive performance numbers that far exceeded
expectations. Our normal testing cycle was reduced from 60 days to less
than two weeks."
The EMC Technology Partner Program enables SwiftTest to offer its
workload modeling and storage performance validation products to help
mutual customers rightsize their storage infrastructure and align
purchases with actual application requirements.
"EMC is pleased that SwiftTest joined the EMC Technology Partner Program
to demonstrate their commitment to helping customers evaluate
infrastructure systems against their requirements for cloud, big data
analytics and security," said Carl Shanahan, EMC Technology Partner
Program Manager. "With SwiftTest, customers considering EMC's open,
extensible storage platforms are able to quickly and accurately model
workload scenarios and obtain performance data to confirm their
infrastructure plans. We look forward to working with SwiftTest to
ensure that our mutual customers have the highest level of support to
speed their information infrastructure initiatives."
As the leader in storage performance validation, SwiftTest empowers
storage professionals with the insight needed to make intelligent
decisions regarding networked storage. By accurately characterizing and
emulating real-world application behavior, SwiftTest optimizes the
overall performance, availability, and cost of storage infrastructure.
The combination of advanced workload modeling and performance validation
software with extreme load-generating appliances give storage and
network engineers the ability to cost-effectively stress storage systems
to their limits. Visit www.swifttest.com
