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.
An enormous amount of I/O traffic is completely unnecessary—and the problem is exacerbated in virtual environments. Facing performance bottlenecks, organizations respond by investing in more hardware—trying to solve performance issues reactively, rather than applying an efficient approach. By optimizing I/O at the source, before it gets pushed through the server, network and storage, performance issues are eliminated across the infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of hardware.
DymaxIO™ uniquely addresses the unnecessary I/O patterns of reads and writes by aggregating data on writes to perform sequentially while caching reads on available server memory without contention to the application. As a result, DymaxIO boosts application performance by 50% or more by (1) maximizing the efficiency of every single I/O from write requests that leave the server and (2) caching the most active data from read requests using available server memory.
How Are Hyper-V Platforms Optimized?
DymaxIO’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, DymaxIO 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 Condusiv’s software, we’ve noticed a performance increase in the desktops and a large gain in our Hyper-V environment.”
— António Soares, Responsável Fertagus-Travessia do Tejo. Transportes S.A.
You may create an online account and download a 30-day evaluation of DymaxIO. For best results, install DymaxIO on ALL VMs on a single host. For evaluation on 10+ systems/VMs, we recommend you contact sales to speak with a Solution Specialist to get set up with the management console for faster deployment.

“Typically, IT professionals respond to application performance issues by reactively buying more hardware. Without the luxury of a padded budget, we needed to find a way to improve performance on the hardware infrastructure we already have. It saved us from having to make a heavy investment in SSDs or do a complete rip and replace of our entire hardware infrastructure. To this day, I still can’t believe software is doing this.”
R. Ortiz, IT Manager, ASL Marketing
“I have used Diskeeper since it was first introduced. It has always worked well in keeping my drive defragged for the fastest response times for all of my apps. Thank you again for this fine piece of software.”
Philip Baldwin, NVQB
“The Undelete software that we use on all our Regional Servers is undoubtedly worth every penny. It
has saved our Techs numerous hours in restoring files inadvertently deleted as opposed to having to
restore from backup tape.”
Michael Lucas, Gancom (Division of Gannet Fleming)
“Undelete saves backup restores when someone accidentally deletes a file from a Windows share. We store tapes off site so Undelete can save a big delay for file restores of that type. Undelete does what it says on the box – really – and it works nicely as a network recycle bin.”
Glenn Edwards, Infrastructure Analyst, Itron
“I have been using Diskeeper for many years, it is installed as a routine on all servers, networked clients, SHO and any other computer. It has never presented any problem and has always demonstrated improved drive performance in both servers and clients. With each new release Condusiv does not merely provide “window dressing”, they actually improve the product with the objective of making it easier to use, more reliable, more effective and easier to use.”
