Boost Virtual Infrastructure performance up to 50% with V-locity 4

Make Virtual Machines Faster with the updated V-locity 4 https://i2.wp.com/www2.sofsol.co.nz/images/sofsol.png
V-locity 4 increases performance up to 50% without the cost of new or additional storage hardware. V-locity enormously improves the efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms by optimizing reads and writes for increased bandwidth to VMs, eliminating application bottlenecks and enabling more VMs on a single, physical server. V-locity I/O optimization is specifically tailored for virtual environments, leveraging a SAN or NAS as it proactively provides I/O benefit without negatively impacting advanced storage features like snapshots, replication, data deduplication and thin provisioning.

Customer Pain Points

V-locity helps solve the following known performance problems on virtual platforms:

  • Slow I/O response time
  • Slow application performance
  • I/O bottlenecks as the number of VMs increases
  • Adding hardware to increase performance
  • Adding hardware to increase VM density
  • Resource contention as workloads increase

The primary barriers to performance on a virtual platform are:

Unnecessary I/Os. – The Windows operating system generates unnecessary I/O operations by breaking a single file into several pieces upon write. As each piece requires additional operations on the storage layer, the net result is an I/O penalty incurred for every write and subsequent read.

I/O bottlenecks. – Without proactively addressing the most frequently accessed data on the server side, that data must travel the full distance between server and storage, increasing latency and stealing storage bandwidth.

V-locity 4 VM accelerator is a virtual storage and application performance software that overcomes these barriers with proactive, high-performance I/O optimization for virtualized environments. V-locity operates transparently and automatically, delivering additional speed without the cost of new or additional storage hardware or impacting IT staff.

As a first step, V-locity eliminates unnecessary I/Os caused by the operating system breaking apart files upon write, which also penalizes subsequent reads. File coherency at the server level via V-locity enormously improves the efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms for increased bandwidth. V-locity I/O optimization is specifically tailored for virtual environments that leverage a SAN or NAS as it proactively provides I/O benefit without negatively impacting advanced storage features like snapshots, replication, data deduplication and thin provisioning.

Second, V-locity further reduces I/O bottlenecks by intelligently caching frequently used files, thus eliminating unnecessary I/O traffic and improving performance by up to 50%. V-locity provides faster I/O throughput for VMs and physical server hosts, increased VM density and optimized VM resource usage within a shared storage system. V-locity also improves storage resource utilization, thereby reducing or postponing additional storage hardware expenditures, without compromising business productivity.

What makes V-locity 4 so effective is its powerful toolkit of proactive technologies, including IntelliWrite, V-Aware, CogniSAN, InvisiTasking and the new IntelliMemory RAM caching technology.

  • IntelliWrite technology automatically prevents the operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance-penalized manner. This proactive approach improves performance up to 50% or more while preventing any negative impact to snapshots, replication, data deduplication or thin provisioning growth. As this proactive approach happens at the server level, the network and shared storage simply has less I/O operations to transfer and process.
  • IntelliMemory intelligent caching technology boosts active data, improving I/O response time up to 50% or more while also eliminating unnecessary I/O operations from getting into the network or storage.
  • V-Aware technology detects external resource usage from other virtual machines on the virtual platform and eliminates any resource contention that might slow performance.
  • CogniSAN technology detects external resource usage within a shared storage system, such as a SAN, and allows for transparent optimization by not competing for resources utilized by other VMs over the same storage infrastructure. It does this without intruding upon any SAN-layer operations.
  • InvisiTasking technology allows all the V-locity 4 “background” operations within the VM to run with zero resource impact on current production.

Pricing

V-locity is priced by the number of CPU cores in the host system (i.e. a system with a Dual Core Processor needs 2 licenses, a system with two Dual Core Processors needs 4 licenses), however the Core count is cumulative over an organisations total number of hosts being licensed. List pricing starts at $409.76 plus GST per core for 2-9 cores ($368.78 plus GST Reseller buy), with discounted options available for Government and Academic/Charitable organisations. Maintenance is an optional additional purchase. Full pricing available at sales for full pricing details or to get a quote.
