V-locity VM Acceleration Software Is a Finalist in the Storage System Software Category; There Were 150 Entries in the 11th Annual Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com Products of the Year Awards; Three Winners -- Gold, Silver and Bronze -- Will Be Announced in Each Category in the February Issue of Storage Magazine and Online at SearchStorage.com
BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - January 22, 2014) - Condusiv™ Technologies, the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses, announces today that its V-locity® VM acceleration software has been selected as a finalist in the Systems Software category of Storage magazine/SearchStorage.com 2013 Products Of The Year.
V-locity VM software optimizes I/O at the virtual machine (VM) layer to reduce I/O traffic and accelerate storage performance without requiring new hardware. Product enhancements include server-side DRAM read caching, which uses available memory to boost performance, a re-architected write optimization engine and an embedded benchmark tool to audit performance.
"We see an in common challenge for the large enterprise. There is strain on their IT infrastructure performance with limited budget to maintain performance needs as result of demand from IOP intensive applications like virtualization, Affordable Healthcare Reform, BYOD, bigger data and cloud transformation. We are very proud to be a finalist as a Storage Product of the year candidate," said Jerry Baldwin, CEO of Condusiv Technologies. "CIOs need business value for their company, the last thing an IT director needs to show his boss is a bill for more disk or hybrid arrays. All other solutions require some type of new hardware which means high CAPEX costs associated with new hardware, soft costs associated with deploying and managing, and increased OPEX costs in energy and floor space. Not only is V-locity 1/10th the cost of the hardware alternative, it deploys in minutes with zero disruption -- no tuning or ongoing management required."
Condusiv Technologies' V-locity VM acceleration software is a 100% software approach to increasing storage performance by 50% or more without new hardware.
By optimizing I/O at the virtual machine layer, V-locity reduces I/O traffic by 50%, providing performance headroom back to the storage subsystem since it is no longer processing superfluous I/O.
This uniquely allows organizations to increase business productivity, literally overnight, without any of the cost and disruption that comes with adding new storage hardware.
This is achieved through two proprietary technology engines. The first is a write optimization engine that eliminates the high percentage of split I/Os sent to storage in a virtualized environment due to the mixing of I/O streams from multiple VMs. The second is a read caching engine that caches hot, common data within available server memory.
V-locity has quickly amassed over 1,600 customers.
