Microsoft Hyper-V® hypervisor virtualization brings an entire evolution of new benefits to computing – including substantial hardware resource savings, reductions in space and energy, and much more. There are several issues which must be addressed, however, in order for virtual machines to deliver the efficiency and service for which they are intended.
How Are Hyper-V Platforms Optimized?
V-locity’s IntelliWrite® technology automatically prevents the operating system from breaking files into pieces and writing those pieces in a performance-penalized manner. This proactive approach improves performance up to 50% while preventing any impact to advanced storage features like snapshots replication, data deduplication, or thin provisioning growth.
Unnecessary I/Os are eliminated, resulting in faster I/O throughput, and the ability to add VMs without a drop in performance. With IntelliMemory™ caching technology, V-locity also uses RAM cache to greatly improve file reads performance while lowering the number of drive I/Os created. Combined, the additional benefits of these technologies include increased VM density, increased platform reliability, improved application performance, lower operating costs, and increased hardware lifespan.
“We were experiencing longer and longer response times from servers in our Hyper-V environment. After installing V-locity, we’ve noticed a performance increase in the desktops and a large gain in our Hyper-V environment.”
