Load DynamiX Storage Validation Solutions Adopted by Tolly Group to Benchmark Performance Superiority of IBM FlexSystem and Sophos Products
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Load DynamiX, the leader in storage infrastructure
performance validation, and Tolly Group, a leading provider of
independent IT product testing and validation services today announced
they have completed two performance validation reports, for IBM (News - Alert)
Corporation and Sophos, that showcase the performance advantages of
their respective products. Using LoadDynamiX storage performance
validation appliances, Tolly recently tested the VM migration and
aggregate network performance of the IBM FlexSystem® Network
Architecture and the VMware Server and VDI client application
performance of the Sophos Antivirus for vShield v1.0.
IBM commissioned the Tolly Group to benchmark the network capacity and
VM migration performance of its IBM Flex System. Testing was conducted
in a fully-loaded IBM Flex Server chassis running a VMware virtualized
environment and compared that solution with a similar configuration
using Cisco (News - Alert) Systems Unified Computing System (UCS).
Sophos commissioned the Tolly Grup to evaluate its Antivirus for
vShield v1.0 solution and compare its performance to two other vShield
offerings: McAfee MOVE Agentless 3.0 and Trend Micro (News - Alert) Deep Security 9.
Tests encompassed a range of VMware ESXi 5.5 and Microsoft Server 2008
virtual server applications including web, database and CIFS file
services. A virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment with 120
Windows 7 enterprise virtual machines on was also evaluated.
"We are seeing a strong trend toward testing the performance of storage
and network products when deployed in virtualized and cloud
infrastructures," said Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group (News - Alert). "With
Load DynamiX storage workload modeling and performance validation
appliances, we can easily create apples-to-apples comparisons of
competitive solutions that will provide a new level of insight for IT
managers. Load DynamiX is the gold standard in the industry for
performance testing and validation and has become invaluable in testing
this new generation of products."
"Load DynamiX is rapidly becoming the performance validation solution of
choice for both technology vendors and IT organizations within the
Global 2000," stated Len Rosenthal, vice-president of marketing, Load
DynamiX. "The Tolly Group's use of Load DynamiX to validate the
performance and scalability of solutions from IBM, Cisco, and Sophos is
further evidence of the versatility and broad adoption of Load DynamiX."
Load DynamiX will be exhibiting their products at EMC (News - Alert) World 2014 in Las
Vegas May 5-8 in booth #642.
