GLENDALE, CA, September 23, 2019 — Condusiv Technologies announced that its V-locity I/O reduction software has been verified as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that enhance Workspace, Networking and Analytics solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq): CTXS. V-locity, an innovative and dynamic alternative to costly hardware overhauls, has completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, providing confidence in joint solution efficiency and value.
Verified Performance Improvements of 50 Percent or More
To obtain the Citrix Ready status, IOMeter benchmark tests the industry standard tool for testing I/O performance were run on a Windows 10 system powered by Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. The tests determined that drastic improvements were made with Condusiv’s V-locity software compared to the alternative.
With V-locity enabled, performance rates improved around 50 percent on average and even up to 90 percent in some cases. In one test case, IOps (I/O per second) increased from 2,903 to 5,525; this results in speed and a more efficient rate of production. The workload (amount of data read/written) increased from 169GB to 273GB, meaning 60 percent more work was being done in the same amount of time.
The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and results-driven solutions that can enhance Citrix environments and increase productivity. Customers can be confident that V-locity has successfully passed an exhaustive series of tests established by Citrix. The V-locity technology works effectively with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and can provide customers with 50 percent or more faster performance gain (at a minimum) on their heaviest workloads. V-locity allows customers to “set it and forget it,” meaning that once it is installed, systems will instantly improve.
“It’s important to remember that most I/O performance issues are caused by the operating system, particularly in the Windows environment. When compared to a hardware upgrade, the software solutions Condusiv offers are far more effective-both in terms of cost and result-in increasing overall system performance,” said Jim D’Arezzo, Condusiv CEO. “We offer customers intelligent solutions that now combine our V-locity with Citrix Virtual Desktop. We are proud to partner with Citrix Systems and look forward to continuing to work with the trusted partners in the Citrix Ready ecosystem.”
