VMware® virtualization is a thorough progression
in computing benefits. Such benefits include substantial reductions in hardware
resources, considerable space and energy savings, and much more. Moving to cloud
computing with VMware virtualization of desktops, applications and servers allows
for greater efficiency and agility while retaining control and freedom of choice.
An enormous amount of I/O traffic is completely unnecessary—and the problem is exacerbated
in virtual environments. Facing performance bottlenecks, organizations respond by
investing in more hardware—trying to solve performance issues reactively, rather
than applying an efficient approach. By optimizing I/O at the source, before it
gets pushed through the server, network and storage, performance issues are eliminated
across the infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of hardware.
uniquely addresses the unnecessary I/O patterns of reads and writes by aggregating
data on writes to perform sequentially while caching reads on available server memory
without contention to the application. As a result, V-locity boosts application
performance by 50% or more by (1) maximizing the efficiency of every single I/O
from write requests that leave the server and (2) caching the most active data from
read requests using available server memory.

How to Optimize VMware Platforms
Expressly developed for virtual platform optimization,
V-locity I/O optimization software is the sole solution for optimizing
VMware platform performance. Requiring little to no manual intervention, V-locity
maximizes application I/O performance and storage utilization transparently,
automatically and cost effectively.
"For peak performance of Guest OSs running Windows, VMware recommends Best Practice
maintenance with V-locity virtual platform optimizer, a VMware-ready solution."
"We're running VMWare ESX and V-locity was deployed shortly after the purchase.
We have reduced our overhead maintenance by 90-95%. V-locity prevents a significant
amount of I/O and greatly improves performance."
