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.
V-locity® 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, V-locity 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.
