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 overprovisioning 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 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.”

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
