Hello, my name is Dan Chilton, and I am a Solutions Performance Engineer here in the Workload Engineering team at NetApp. You might have run into me on the Flying Through Clouds blog series. We recently wrapped that project up and the technical report is published.
The Workload Engineering team is starting a new technical blog series to discuss storage performance at NetApp called “Performance Perspectives”. It will include findings from the Performance Engineering groups at NetApp and give you a look behind the curtains at NetApp performance. The Performance Engineering teams are certainly focused on developing and testing their respective products. Throughout the entire release cycle, they are regularly evaluating performance through a series of benchmark testing. My team, the Workload Engineering team focus is primarily on solution performance testing.
Our focus includes:
As you can see we stay busy. The goal of this blog is to teach by sharing our experiences found by measuring and optimizing solutions performance. It will also showcase some of the performance peaks achieved in benchmark testing and performance proof-points obtained for NetApp solutions. We hope that you, our customers and partners, can rely on us as a trusted partner evidenced by our passion about performance. If you like, leave us a comment with your “performance perspective”.
