"In 2013 CIO's require improved IT performance. They can no longer afford to spend 70% to 80% of their funds refreshing and expanding existing systems. They need to be able to shift a big chunk of their budgets into growth initiatives--IT projects and programs that open new markets and new business," said Jerry Baldwin, CEO of Condusiv Technologies. "V-locity Server is leading the shift from hardware to software in solving performance issues in the enterprise. The result is business critical legacy applications that are accelerated by 50% or more while saving organizations up to 80 cents on the dollar since all that speed is delivered without disruptive and expensive new hardware."
There are two performance barriers at work:
- Windows generates unnecessary I/O traffic by splitting files upon write, which also impacts subsequent reads
- Frequently-accessed data unnecessarily travels the full distance from server to storage and back on every I/O request.
These two behaviors create an enormous amount of unnecessary I/O that prevents data and applications from performing at peak operation.
When a system services many simultaneous requests from a number of disparate data access points, I/O bottlenecks occur. This problem is compounded by the above read and write inefficiencies resulting in an unwelcome increase in overhead that reduces server, network and storage performance. In today's data-driven environment, there is an even greater need for cost-effective bandwidth or I/O capacity that can only be achieved through proactive software optimization.As a first step to I/O optimization, V-locity Server eliminates nearly all unnecessary I/O operations at the operating system level when writing a file, which in turn eliminates all unnecessary I/O operations on subsequent reads. As a second step, V-locity Server caches frequently accessed data within available server memory without resource contention to the application to keep read requests from traveling the full distance to storage and back. With V-locity at the top of the technology stack, optimizing I/O at the point of origin, this means only productive I/O is pushed through the server, network and storage. This approach to I/O optimization compliments technologies that may already be running to promote IOPS or latency reduction, including SSDs, flash cards, SAS, etc., and provides tremendous benefit from the top-down. And since I/O is optimized at the source, V-locity Server is network storage agnostic, providing benefits to advanced storage features like snapshots, replication, thin provisioning and deduplication. "V-locity is like nitro for your storage. My web applications are faster; my databases respond quicker and backups transfer faster. With V-locity optimizing our environment, the amount of workload we were able to process in the same amount of time jumped 89%," said Carlo Piccini, Oracle and Affinium DBA, Bell Canada.
