Tolly Group Validates Superior Capabilities of Overland Storage
SnapScale X2 Clustered NAS Using SwiftTest Performance Validation Suite
“As networked storage becomes an even more critical part of big data and cloud-based infrastructures, storage equipment vendors must deliver dramatically increased performance products that are cost-effective for the enterprise data center,” said
By offering a comprehensive solution that validates performance across file, block and object storage, SwiftTest allows organizations to stress storage infrastructure to its limits with highly accurate, real-world application workloads. SwiftTest offers a pre-configured test platform, protocol test suites, and test content based on industry standard workloads. Fully customizable workloads enable any enterprise production network to repeatedly test and validate their specific workloads to determine the best storage products to meet performance and scalability requirements.
The first such industry standard test was performed with the Overland Storage SnapScale X2 Clustered NAS storage system. Overland Storage wanted to demonstrate that multiple SnapScale X2 nodes can work together seamlessly and spread processing power reliably to increase performance and bandwidth without limits. In order to validate this expected behavior, Tolly and SwiftTest collaborated on a series of tests that evaluated the SnapScale X2 platform in sequential and random read/write test scenarios. The tests validated that the SnapScale X2 can easily scale to 50 nodes, thus increasing overall NAS capacity and performance simultaneously, while maintaining management simplicity.
