The digital economy has put greater value on information as a competitive advantage.
The megatrends of virtualization, cloud computing, and bring-your-own device (BYOD)
and the increased use and generation of large digital files are all adding to the
mix as organizations must access, manage, store, analyze, and recover information
to increase revenue.
is has resulted in an unexpected input/output (I/O) explosion — the direct by-product
of virtualization in a digital economy trying to extract value from this compounding
optimizes I/O at the server level to prevent unnecessary I/O operations from getting
into the server, network or shared storage. The result is unprecedented performance
gains from software—no additional hardware required.
The challenge of maintaining the highest possible Service Level Agreement (SLA)
with no overhead in today’s virtual environments has been solved with V-locity:
I/O optimization software that delivers 50% or more improved performance—overnight—no

How can virtual platform performance be maximized?
V-locity 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
Read I/O Optimization – Much of the I/O traffic moving through
the infrastructure shares similar data, yet every byte of that data travels the
entire distance from server to storage and back for every I/O request, even when
it is frequently accessed data. IntelliMemory™ technology addresses
this read request inefficiency by caching the most active data in the server’s available
memory. Should an application require more memory, V-locity serves memory back to
the application to ensure there is never a case of memory starvation or resource
contention. Condusiv Technologies’ self-learning caching algorithms have set the
gold standard for the industry as they are OEM’d by eight of the top ten largest
PC manufacturers in the world.
Write I/O Optimization – V-locity’s IntelliWrite®
technology optimizes I/O write operations, eliminating the performance penalties
associated with the Windows OS, splitting files into pieces and writing each piece
to a different logical location within the SAN or NAS. V-locity is aware of space
allocation and aggregates writes to behave sequentially—requiring less I/O for every
file written. Subsequent reads also benefit, since only minimum I/O is required
to fulfill the request. As a result, only productive I/O requests are processed
across the entire infrastructure, enabling more data to be processed in the same
amount of time.
When only productive I/O traffic is processed through the server, network and storage,
I/Os per second are accelerated, latency is greatly reduced, and more work can be
performed in the same amount of time. This greatly improves the efficiency of all
VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms and physical servers for
V-locity I/O optimization is tailored for virtual environments that leverage a SAN
or NAS as it proactively provides I/O benefit—improving storage performance and
benefiting advanced storage features like snapshots, replication, data deduplication
and thin provisioning. Since V-locity optimizes I/O at the server level, it is complementary
to all SAN and NAS storage systems and media types (e.g., HDD or SSD).
"I was shocked to see after deploying V-locity how much performance increased on
the servers I had hosting disk-intensive operations. This includes our database
server, Exchange server, and terminal servers."
