V-locity 3 is designed to improve the performance and efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor virtual platforms automatically, intelligently and transparently. It prevents fragmentation before it can happen, therefore eliminating unnecessary I/Os going down to the storage subsystem.
V-Locity with IntelliWrite elevates the whole approach to solving fragmentation by addressing how files are written to disk. As a result, V-Locity prevents up to 85% of all disk fragmentation, leaving only a small amount to be quickly eliminated by powerful, invisible V-locity defrag engines.
V-locity 3 greatly reduces I/O requests into the storage area, resulting in faster VM and host I/O throughput. This can reduce file read/write/copy times, eliminate resource contention and optimise VM resource usage within a shared storage system. Increased hardware life and lowered operating costs can be achieved with fully automatic and transparent process.
