Description: V-locity Server - (v. 6) - license - academic, volume - 25-49 licenses - Win
Mfr Part #: 43103004
V-locity is I/O reduction software, that enables solving the tough application performance problems on virtual servers. Virtual environments suffer from two big I/O inefficiencies, that unnecessarily tax workloads with a surplus of tiny randomized writes and reads, that steal bandwidth from VM (virtual machine) to storage. This "death by a thousand cuts" scenario results in sluggish system performance regardless of the storage media being used.
- Enables solving the tough application performance problems
- Latency and throughput dramatically improved
- True "set and forget" management
- Compatible with all SAN/NAS systems
- Easily deploy to multiple servers with just a few clicks
- "Time saved" reporting dashboard to validate benefits
- Enterprise-wide visibility into I/O performance health from the OS to storage
- V-locity - automated read and write I/O optimization
IntelliWrite prevents small, fractured I/O and sequentializes I/O streams by understanding when the OS is about to break a file into pieces. IntelliMemory is a server-side DRAM read caching engine, that leverages idle, available DRAM to target I/O, that penalizes storage performance the small, random I/O. IntelliMemory's behavioral analytics engine makes the optimal use of DRAM for caching by collecting usage data and I/O characteristics across a wide range of data points. By servicing I/O at the top of the technology stack from the fast storage media possible, organizations reduce latency and further reduce the amount of I/O to storage, complementing the I/O reduction from IntelliWrite.
- Target applications
V-locity is commonly used to address an organization's I/O intensive applications as its effectiveness scales with workload intensity. This typically means applications running on top, file servers, and backup. Whether it's a client-facing application whereby users are complaining about sluggish performance or a back-office batch job, that is taking too long to complete, V-locity improves business efficiency without disruption.
- V-locity's "time saved" dashboard
V-locity demonstrates the value, provided to any one VM or group of VMs by displaying the "time saved" from I/O reduction over any period of time. See what percentage of write traffic is eliminated from displacing many small writes with fewer contiguous writes. See the percentage of read traffic, cached in idle DRAM instead of being served from storage. V-locity displays the number of read and write I/Os eliminated to storage and shows the actual "time saved" benefit on all systems, so the value is easily quantifiable and never in question.
