V-locity® 6.0 is I/O reduction software that improves throughput and reduces latency on existing systems for 50-300% faster application performance.
V-locity solves the two big I/O inefficiencies in virtual environments that rob 50% of bandwidth from VM (virtual machine) to storage with I/O that is increasingly smaller, more fractured, and more random over time, which penalizes performance with death by a thousand cuts on both flash or spindles (Video: The Two Silent Killers of VM Performance). V-locity is the only way to optimize I/O performance by solving these inefficiencies with software intelligence that ensures files are written and subsequently read from flash or disk in a contiguous, sequential fashion for the fastest performance possible and also serves the smallest, most random I/O from available DRAM which further reduces I/O to storage.

V-locity is most commonly used by virtualized organizations to address their most I/O intensive workloads as its effectiveness scales with workload intensity. This typically means applications running on top of SQL/Oracle/SAP, ERP, VDI, EHR/EMR (MEDITECH), OLTP, Business Intelligence (BI) apps, CRM, Exchange, SharePoint, file servers, backup, and more.
Whether it's a client facing application whereby users are complaining about sluggish performance during peak load, or a back office batch job or report that is taking too long to complete, V-locity improves business efficiency without the high cost or disruption of new hardware.

V-locity is bundled with its own Benefit Analyzer™ that provides a before-and-after performance comparison to validate performance gains prior to purchase. All key metrics needed to establish a "proof of performance" are report-ready, showing metrics based on real-world use:
- % of write I/O reduced to storage
- % of read I/O reduced to storage
- Workload comparisons
- Processing times per GB
- I/O response time
- I/Os per second
