Object Storage


The WorkloadWisdom Object Storage performance validation solution provides coverage for three widely supported object storage protocols – Amazon S3, OpenStack Swift, and SNIA CDMI.

The solution is designed to assess the maximum capacity and speed of object storage infrastructures, servers and arrays. WorkloadWisdom emulates up to millions of S3, Swift, and CDMI clients generating highly stressful and realistic requests to the servers. We then measure the performance, scalability, and response times of the servers in handling these requests, and verify the integrity of the stored objects’ contents.

Users have the ability to fine tune the definition of the HTTP request header and request body of each request, as well as content-encoding and transfer-encoding controls, so they can simulate a huge variety of object storage clients.
