Load DynamiX, a provider of storage infrastructure performance validation, has raised a $12 million funding round led by HighBar Partners. The company’s product line provides deep storage infrastructure insight that enables IT managers and architects to optimize the performance, availability and cost of their networked storage infrastructures. Previously focusing specifically on storage and network technology vendors, Load DynamiX last year expanded its focus to include enterprise IT and cloud service provider organizations. Its last financing was a $7.25 million Series B round that was completed in September 2012. As part of the new deal, HighBar's Rohit Malhotra has joined Load DynamiX's Board of Directors.
