V-locity® is an I/O reduction and caching software solution that increases application performance in virtual, physical and cloud environments by 50%-300% without the cost of additional hardware.
By optimising I/O at the Windows OS level (virtual or physical server) - as close to the application as possible - V-locity dramatically reduces the number of I/Os required for any given workload, thus reducing latency and increasing bandwidth from server to network to storage.
In addition to physical and cloud infrastructures, V-locity significantly improves the efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms by optimising reads and writes, allowing more data to be packaged into each I/O request while also caching frequently accessed data within available server memory. The result? Unprecedented application performance gains from a 100% software approach.
IntelliMemory Intelligent Caching Technology
IntelliWrite technology automatically prevents the underlying operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance-penalised manner. This means fewer I/O operations that can result in up to a 50% increase in performance.
IntelliMemory Intelligent Caching Technology automatically caches read requests on idle server resources, thus eliminating unnecessary I/O operations and reducing latency.
Performance Benefit Analyzer
The Performance Benefit Analyzer helps to document the performance benefits V-locity is delivering. It analyses your current system performance and compares these results to those after using V-locity. A detailed report shows specific improvements and benefits to your system.
CogniSAN technology detects external resource usage within a shared storage system and delivers transparent optimisation by not competing for resources utilised by other applications over the same storage infrastructure. It does this without intrusions into the SAN-layer operations.
InvisiTasking technology ensures V-locity operations have zero resource impact on current production.
V-Aware Technology (not available on V-locity Server)
V-Aware technology detects external resource usage from other virtual machines on the virtual platform and helps to eliminates resource contention.
