How Are Hyper-V Platforms Optimized?
The only solution for complete optimization of Hyper-V platform performance is the "V-locity® VM accelerator – designed exclusively for virtual platform optimization. V-locity VM increases VM performance up to 50% without the cost of new or additional storage hardware. V-locity allows for automatic real-time operations for true "Set It and Forget It"® management.
IntelliWrite® technology automatically prevents the operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance penalized manner. This proactive approach improves performance up to 50% while preventing any impact to advanced storage features like snapshots replication, data deduplication or thin provisioning growth. Unnecessary I/Os are eliminated, resulting in faster I/O throughput, and the ability to add VMs without a resulting drop in performance. With the inclusion of IntelliMemory™ caching technology, V-locity VM also uses RAM cache to greatly improve file reads performance, while lowering the number of drive I/Os created. Combined, the additional benefits of these technologies include increased VM density, increased platform reliability, improved application performance, lower operating costs and increased hardware lifespan.
V-locity VM also eliminates defragmentation resource contention between virtual machines. Within a virtual platform, V-Aware® technology detects other resource usage and automatically eliminates defragmentation resource contention between VMs. Within a shared storage system, such as a SAN, CogniSAN® technology detects external resource usage; allowing for transparent optimization to occur without competing with resources needed by other VMs within the same storage infrastructure.
Wasted unused disk space can now be reclaimed quickly and easily. The Space Reclamation Engine within V-locity VM can now use advanced storage thin provisioning commands (i.e. SCSI UNMAP), to reclaim allocated-but-unused thin provisioned free space. The ability to stay thin using the thin reclamation functionality will provide administrators with an easy and automated method for maximizing storage capacity utilization by reclaiming fine-grained physical storage blocks that are no longer being used by the file system.
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 increased application performance and file access speeds.
"V-locity works great. It‘s easy to install and then it just runs. It keeps my
Hyper-V VMs from fragmenting and I never have to worry about it. It is true set-it-and-forget-it
— George Griffin, IT Director

"In our Hyper-V environment, we were starting to have a longer response time from
our servers, mainly our file servers. After installing V-locity we've noticed a
performance increase in the desktops and a large gain in our Hyper-V environment.
V-locity is easy to maintain and to support"
