V-locity VM Features
V-locity VM enormously improves the efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms
by optimizing writes for increased bandwidth to the VM. V-locity VM 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.
- New! IntelliMemory™ Caching Technology
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.
- Improved! IntelliWrite® technology
IntelliWrite 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.
- New! Performance Benefit Analyzer
The Performance Benefits Analyzer helps document the performance benefits of V-locity. The benefit analyzer
looks at your current system performance, then compares these results to those after using V-locity
to provide a detailed report showing specific improvements and benefits to your system.
- V-Aware® technology
V-Aware detects external resource usage from other virtual machines on the virtual platform and eliminates
resource contention that might slow performance.
- CogniSAN® technology
CogniSAN 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. And it does this without intruding in any way into SAN-layer operations.
- InvisiTasking® technology
InvisiTaksing allows all the V-locity "background" operations within the VM to run with zero resource
impact on current production.
- Set It and Forget It®
Automatic and real-time operation.
V-locity VM also offers advanced methods that allow storage devices to reclaim unused space. This includes
trim and unmap support, as well as automatic zeroing of free space to make compaction easy – online,
automatically. It can also be used to reclaim space during storage migration, taking full advantage
of storage features and performance.
