With traditional storage infrastructure you setup your I/O generator of choice with a given workload profile, point it to some LUNs and let it rip. Hyperconverged testing requires a large-scale approach where many VMs (often 10-64) simultaneously apply that workload across multiple vDisks, at the same time… not to mention collecting all of that data when the task finishes. This type of approach is…Read More
