Virtual Instruments to Highlight Storage Infrastructure Performance Monitoring and Validation Solutions at Hitachi NEXT 2017 and Storage Developer Conferences

San Jose, Calif., September 7, 2017Virtual Instruments, the leader in application-centric infrastructure performance management, announced today its upcoming participation at the Storage Developer Conference and Hitachi NEXT 2017 events later this month. Virtual Instruments will lead two presentations on storage array testing best practices at the Storage Developer Conference, taking place in Santa Clara, CA from September 11-14, 2017, and will showcase and demo its storage performance validation and analytics solution, Load DynamiX Enterprise, during the conference as well.

Virtual Instruments will also be exhibiting and showcasing both its VirtualWisdom Infrastructure Performance Monitoring platform and its Load DynamiX Enterprise performance validation solution at Hitachi NEXT 2017, taking place in Las Vegas from September 18-20, 2017.

An integrated solution for workload acquisition, analysis and modeling, Virtual Instruments’ Load DynamiX Enterprise is a vendor-neutral analytics platform used to simulate, test and validate real-world customer workloads on vendor arrays—to validate that performance requirements are met before purchase and deployments. The platform is also extensively used by the QA and Performance Engineering teams of nearly every storage vendor to improve product quality and ensure scalability.

Peter Murray, Principal Systems Engineer at Virtual Instruments, will be presenting two sessions focused on storage array testing at the Storage Developer Conference, with the first session highlighting best practices for testing modern solid state storage arrays, and the second session discussing the implementation of those storage arrays in production environments. Murray is a member of the Technical Council of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), the organizers of the Storage Developer Conference.
