Openstack Swift


The WorkloadWisdom OpenStack Swift Storage performance validation solution is designed to assess the maximum capacity and speed of Swift object storage infrastructures, servers and arrays.

WorkloadWisdom emulates up to millions of Swift clients generating highly stressful and realistic requests to the servers. We measure the performance, scalability, and response times of the servers in handling these requests, and verify the integrity of the stored contents.
