Condusiv Technologies Releases V-locity 4 VM Acceleration Software for Up to 50 Percent Performance Improvement of All VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V Virtual Platforms
New V-locity 4 VM acceleration software optimizes reads and writes, enabling faster
applications and more VMs on a single, physical server without adding any additional
Burbank, Calif., December 10, 2012 – Condusiv™ Technologies,
formerly Diskeeper Corporation, the leader in high-performance software optimizing
technology, people and businesses, today announced the release of V-Locity®
4, application performance and virtual storage software for virtualized environments
including all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms.
V-locity 4 acceleration software allows
IT organizations to go substantially faster in virtualized environments without
the cost of new or additional storage hardware.
By optimizing reads and writes at the server,
V-locity 4 boosts Virtual Machine (VM) performance up to 50% for faster
response times and improved I/Os per second eliminating application bottlenecks
and enabling more VMs on a single, physical server. Because VMs share server and
storage resources, the only way to get the full value of virtualization and protect
CAPEX investment is by improving I/O response time while increasing bandwidth to
the VM without adding additional hardware.
Moreover, by solving the I/O bottlenecks at the source proactively and transparently,
customers can just install V-locity 4 and continue to experience performance improvements
without any further efforts.
"The Condusiv V-locity product has consistently increased the performance of our
VMs. These noted performance gains are even more readily apparent to me and our
other administrators through our usage of the new Benefit Analyzer functionality
built into the newest V-locity 4.0 product. This functionality not only allows us
to more easily generate reports that visually show the benefits of the product to
ourselves, it also provides us with great documentation for demonstrating the benefit
of V-locity 4.0 to our managerial staff. For example, one of our Remote Desktop
Session host servers experienced a 190% improvement in normalized I/Os per second
while latency was reduced by 190% as well. We particularly like the IntelliWrite
functionality of V-locity 4.0," said Bryan Stephens, Technology Services Specialist,
Information Technology, Angelo State University Member, Texas Tech University System
V-locity 4 VM acceleration software is a ground-breaking solution for NAS and SAN
network storage applications. Condusiv Technologies will guarantee a minimum of
25% performance boost on virtual machines, OR THE SOFTWARE IS FREE!

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.
"Applications, mobile devices and Big Data are creating tremendous amounts of data.
This explosion of data has also created an I/O explosion. While virtualization provides
our customers with the agility and scalability required to meet increasing data
challenges and helps with cost savings, it is aggravating the I/O bottleneck problem.
Unless organizations address these I/O challenges, they won't be able to realize
the full value of their virtualization investment," said Jerry Baldwin, CEO of Condusiv
Technologies. "V-locity 4 with IntelliMemory and IntelliWrite technology eliminates
unnecessary I/O and bottlenecks at the source, improving performance by up to 50%
on all VM platforms enabling more VMs on a single physical server without additional
CAPEX hardware cost".
New proactive technology:
IntelliMemory™ RAM caching technology. Reduces I/O bottlenecks by intelligently
caching active data, thus eliminating unnecessary I/O traffic and improving performance
by up to 50%.
IntelliWrite® technology automatically prevents the Windows
operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance
penalized manner. This proactive approach improves performance while preventing
any negative impact to advanced SAN/NAS features like snapshots replication, data
deduplication or thin provisioning growth.
Redesigned User Interface: Completely redesigned UI for ease of use and product
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.
V-locity 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.
V-locity includes a Benefit Analyzer feature that helps deliver a before and after
performance comparison for V-locity allowing a user to validate with supervisors
and stakeholders the key benefits the product brings to the business.
V-locity 4 installs on all Windows virtual machines and supports:
Windows XP (requires SP2), Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8,
Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (or R2) and Windows Server 2012
