How to Optimize VMware Platforms
Expressly developed for virtual platform optimization,
V-locity® VM accelerator
is the sole solution for optimizing VMware platform performance. Requiring little to no manual intervention, V-locity VM maximizes application I/O performance and storage utilization transparently, automatically and cost effectively.
IntelliWrite® uses proprietary technology that automatically prevents the operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance penalizing manner. Due to this proactive approach, unnecessary I/Os are eliminated, VM throughput is faster, and VMs can be consistently added with no negative performance impact. With the inclusion of IntelliMemory caching technology, V-locity VM significantly improves virtual platform performance and I/O response time by using the RAM cache efficiently. These two performance technologies result in additional benefits including increased hardware life, increased VM density, faster application performance, reduced I/O activity, faster file access, lower operating costs and increased platform reliability.
Defragmentation contention between virtual machines is also eliminated by V-locity VM, through the utilization of V-Aware technology. On the same host server, V-Aware detects and automatically eliminates defragmentation resource contention between vitual machines. CogniSAN technology works within a shared resource system, such as a SAN, to detect external resource usage. Without competing with resources needed by other VMs within the same storage infrastructure, transparent optimization then occurs.
To eliminate wasted unused disk space, the Space Reclamation Engine offers both notification of unused drive data blocks, as well as the zeroing out of unused virtual drive data blocks for easy compaction of virtual disks. When VMware’s Storage vMotion is utilized, disk compaction can be done on the fly when virtual disk migration is performed across physical hosts.
InvisiTasking® technology means that all V-locity VM tasks in no way impact current production. The only performance effect on users will be a positive one.
"For peak performance of Guest OSes running Windows, VMware recommends Best Practice
maintenance with V-locity virtual platform optimizer, a VMReady solution." - VMware
As referenced in VMware KB article Defragmenting a Disk: "Defragmenting a disk is
required to address problems encountered with an operating system as a result of
file system fragmentation. Fragmentation problems result in slow operating system
performance." Note: This is Guest-specific.

"We're running VMWare ESX and V-locity was deployed shortly after the purchase.
I can honestly say that we have reduced our overhead maintenance by 90-95%. Introducing
IntelliWrite made a great product even better. I love the fact that I don't even
know it's there...these products prevent defragmentation without any performance
