A company’s profits are tied to its ability to keep their profits margins high by reducing unnecessary spending and continuing to produce quality results. Many companies are using virtualization platforms to replace their multiple server environments because of the ways that they eliminate wasteful practices and require significantly less capital to operate.
Multiple server environments create a tremendous amount of waste but have been the standard for many businesses because there were no effective alternatives. Each server hosts a single operating system or application. This keeps the information safe from corruption but it also means that the extra space on the server cannot be used to store additional information. These setups also require an influx of capital to purchase, house, store, and maintain the machines. Over multiple servers these costs add up and the wasted space accumulates quickly, costing the company money that it does not need to spend.
Virtualization platforms eliminate the need for a company to purchase multiple servers by condensing operating systems and applications onto a single server. The information stored on the server is kept safe because each application or operating system is stored in its own secure area. If one area is corrupted the other information can still be accessed and used.
Virtualization systems offer tremendous advantages but only if they are properly protected from the problems that are bound to arise. I/O bandwidth quickly becomes clogged due to accelerated fragmentation, competition for shared resources creates conflicts that slow the system and dynamic disks that do not shrink can create wasted space. These problems can be prevented with the installation of a virtualization platform disk optimizer
V-locity 3 is a virtualization platform disk optimizer that is designed to provide virtualization platforms with the best protection against the problems that can occur. Using unique technologies V-locity 3
creates optimal conditions for all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-v hypervisor virtual platforms.
IntelliWrite® technology is used to prevent most fragmentation before it happens. This eliminates the need for a defrag later and keeps the system running smoothly. V-Aware™ detects external resource usage from other virtual machines to eliminate resource contention that can otherwise exist on the same Host Server. Using CogniSAN technology V-locity 3 detects external storage usage on a shared storage system to allow for transparent optimization by not competing with other virtual machines.
Special Virtuual Disk Auto Detection allows any V-locity 3 Guest to conform their optimization settings to the specific virtual disk that the machine is using. Automatic Zeroing of Free space will ease the compaction process by zeroing out unused data blocks on the virtual disk. Storage migration then reclaims the unused free space and improves the VM density to create a more energy efficient platform.
Virtualization platforms help companies compete in their industries by reducing the costs that they face every day with a multiple server environment. To make sure that they are using the full scope of the platform it is important that a company install a virtualization platform disk optimizer. This software, like V-locity 3, gives the company maximum I/O performance and the best return on their investment.
