Load DynamiX Performance Validation Appliances Utilized by HP to Validate Superior Performance of HP StoreVirtual VSA Software Defined Storage

Load DynamiX, the leader in storage performance validation, today announced that its workload modeling and load generation solutions were deployed by HP to test and validate industry-leading performance of HP’s new StoreVirtual VSA storage solution running on new Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 based servers.

HP collaborated with Load DynamiX for a deeper understanding of how virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and online transaction processing (OLTP) application workloads would perform on a HP ProLiant Gen9 server running HP StoreVirtual VSA software. Load DynamiX worked with HP to develop OLTP and VDI workloads that would showcase the outstanding performance capabilities of new StoreVirtual VSA software when deployed on the new Xeon processor E5 v3 product family. HP’s results proved that the latest Xeon-based servers demonstrated a 4X storage performance increase for VDI and a 1.8X increase with OLTP workloads as compared to previous generation Intel server processor technology without additional latencies.

The HP StoreVirtual VSA transforms a server’s internal or direct-attached storage into a fully-featured shared storage array without the cost and complexity associated with dedicated storage. StoreVirtual VSA is a hypervisor and hardware agnostic virtual storage appliance optimized for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM, and OpenStack environments.

Load DynamiX offers the only performance validation solution on the market designed to meet the exacting needs of storage and storage network technology vendors. It combines the industry’s deepest and most accurate emulation of networked storage protocols and workloads, with the highest performing load generating appliances, capable of stressing today’s largest networked storage systems.

“The rise of mobile, cloud, social and big data is driving unprecedented performance requirements for next-generation storage platforms,” said Len Rosenthal, vice president of marketing for Load DynamiX. “Leading storage system vendors such as HP must prove that their solutions can reliably deliver the storage performance required of this new generation of virtualized applications. Deploying workload modeling and performance validation solutions are the best way for these vendors to accurately show that their solutions meet these demanding requirements.”

“At HP, we utilize Load DynamiX to help us deliver higher performance and higher-quality storage products,” said Craig Nunes, vice president, storage marketing, HP. “Through our joint efforts, we were able to clearly showcase the performance scalability and advantages of our new StoreVirtual VSA solution based on the newest Intel Xeon E5 v3 based platforms running real-world applications.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
