A sampling of both Virtual Instruments authored and industry authored content about the definition of workloads and the value in understanding workload behavior.
Drag and drop your workload data for uploading into WorkloadCentral. WorkloadCentral recommends a set of policies to analyze the data with, based on the file type regardless of whether it came from a specific storage array or management tool.
Visually analyze your workload profiles in an easy to understand graphical format that displays all of the key workload I/O metrics for the time period of your choosing.
See highly realistic simulations of your workloads in an easy to edit workload model. This model can be used as a baseline for your current production environment or as the basis for what-if analysis to see how changes in workload behavior will impact future storage performance on a variety of storage platforms.
The Workload Library serves two main purposes. First, for new ‘greenfield’ deployments, it’s often useful to begin your workload modeling with an existing workload model. WorkloadCentral comes with pre-built workload models for:
Secondly, the Workload Library is useful for sharing workload models with other industry peers, cloud service providers and with your storage vendors.
Once you’ve used WorkloadCentral to profile your workload, you can use Load DynamiX Enterprise products or services to:
WorkloadCentral is simple to use. You can browse the site and Workload Library at any time. If you want to upload data for analysis or download a workload you will need to register by going to: WorkloadCentral
Today’s complex infrastructures make it difficult to understand application workloads and their interrelationships with your storage infrastructure. WorkloadCentral is a free cloud-based storage workload analysis service, based on the Load DynamiX Enterprise workload analysis and modeling application. It’s designed for storage professionals to better understand how applications are interacting with their production storage infrastructure.
