From SDS to HyperConvergence: Gridstore Expands Product Line

Gridstore, a vendor known for its software-defined storage (SDS) offering especially designed for the Microsoft Hyper-V environment, today announced that it is extending its storage solution into the HyperConvergence category. The company’s storage offerings don’t disappear by any means and users can still buy just the storage alone but now they can essentially buy the entire IT in a box by opting for the HyperConverged Appliance(s). By doing so they will not need anything else to run the applications.

All that has changed in the hands of Oracle.

We here in the Taneja Group lab often need to generate a large number of Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPs), and we have found one of the best ways to do this is with the Load DynamiX Appliance. However, often the charts that it generates aren’t in the form we need for a specific task, so I would like to share with you the steps we take take in the lab to create custom Excel charts using Load DynamiX data.
