Hardware performance testing

Imagine investing in high-end disk racks with the expectation of a significant performance boost, only to see lackluster results. Wondering why this happens?

Hardware benchmarking holds the key to your questions. We’ll assist you in determining how well your equipment, including servers, data storage systems, network devices, and load balancers, can support your information system based on the workload.
Before committing to pricey hardware purchases, conducting these tests will provide a clear verdict on whether it’s a necessity or if your money is better spent elsewhere.).

Stats don’t lie

Hardware upgrades or replacements are typically necessary in a minority of cases.
These situations may include hardware limitations, such as insufficient memory, outdated processors, or storage constraints that can’t be efficiently overcome through software adjustments.
In many cases, software optimization can address a significant portion of performance problems, estimated at around 70-80%.
These issues often involve inefficient code, poor database query performance, suboptimal configurations, or bottlenecks that can be resolved through software adjustments.
