X-Ray is a comprehensive hyperconverged infrastructure assessment solution, enabling organizations to evaluate the architectural differences between hyperconverged infrastructures, automating the analysis of consistent application performance and reliability, with scenarios that negatively affect those applications.
As an example, X-Ray can help analyse the impact on your application performance of taking many disk snapshots, or of when node failures in existing mission-critical application cluster occurs.
Packaged as a VM, X-Ray uses realistic workloads paired with real-world scenarios to simulate various workflows and events that typically occur during datacenter infrastructures.
