Amazon S3


The WorkloadWisdom Amazon S3 Storage performance validation solution is designed to assess the maximum capacity and speed of S3 object storage infrastructures, servers and arrays.

WorkloadWisdom accomplishes this by emulating up to millions of S3 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.
