How Are VMs for the Cloud Optimized?
An absolute requirement for virtual machines in cloud computing is V-locity VM—designed exclusively for virtual machine acceleration. V-locity® VM accelerator increases VM performance up to 50% without the cost of new or additional storage hardware.
Through proprietary IntelliWrite® technology, unneccessary I/Os creation is stopped. This technology prevents the operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance-robbing manner. Unnecessary I/Os are eliminated, resulting in faster VM I/O throughput, and the ability to add VMs without a resulting drop in performance. IntelliMemory™ caching technology increases I/O response time by efficiently using RAM cache. Together, these two technologies effectively increase application performance, accelerate access to file data, reduce I/Os to the disk, increase VM density, increase VM platform reliability, lower operating costs and increase hardware life.
V-locity VM also eliminates resource contention between virtual machines. Within a virtual platform, V- Aware™ technology detects other resource usage and automatically eliminates contention from these resources on the same host server. Within a shared storage system, such as a SAN, CogniSAN® technology detects external resource usage; transparent optimization then occurs without competing with resources needed by other VMs within the same storage infrastructure.
Wasted unused virtual disk space is a thing of the past. IT managers can now choose to either be notified when there are unused data blocks on a virtual drive or opt to automatically reclaim allocated-but-unused data blocks, allowing for more control over virtual disk compaction and space reclamation.
Because of InvisiTasking® technology, all of the tasks performed by V-locity VM have
absolutely no impact on current production—users will only be aware of V-locity
due to the performance increase.
“I used to get constant alerts about high fragmentation before I installed V-locity.
Now I get no alerts about fragmentation. The difference is like night and day.
“V-locity is one of the best piece's of software I have ever purchased. Not only
do I not get alerts but I have noticed a better response time in the high demand

“V-locity immediately went to work after installing it on our guest systems. Without
touching the product, other than to give the view a 'before' image of the disk utilization,
file access times and boot processes were improved within 24 hours and the changes
were noticeable to end-users."
