Condusiv® Technologies, the world leader in software-only storage performance solutions for virtual and physical server environments, today announced that its V-locity I/O reduction software has been named a Computer Technology Review Most Valuable Product (MVP) 2015 Award winner. Following a meticulous review by the Computer Technology Review (CTR) editorial team across comprehensive criteria that included product innovation, functionality, and affordability, V-locity stood out in the Data Storage category for its ability to greatly reduce I/O overhead in virtual environments.
V-locity effectively eliminates the “performance penalty” from mixing uncoordinated, contentious and disruptive I/O streams from multiple virtual machines—known as the “I/O blender” effect, which is further exacerbated by Windows free space allocation inefficiencies that fractures I/O into increasingly smaller chunks. By sequentializing I/O patterns and caching active data from available server DRAM, customer research has shown that users experience 50-300% faster application performance gains on their heaviest workloads—with no additional hardware needed.
“We have identified a select group of innovative technology solutions that represent the standout leaders in their respective categories—solutions which we think should be at the top of every IT professional’s evaluation shortlist,” said Kim Kay, Associate Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, WestWorldWide, LLC, publishers of Computer Technology Review and IT Security Journal. “We congratulate Condusiv on its well-deserved 2015 CTR MVP Award win.”
“We are honored to have been named a recipient of the Computer Technology Review 2015 MVP Award based on the numerous strengths of our V-locity I/O reduction software,” said Brian Morin, senior vice president, global marketing, Condusiv Technologies. “This tremendous honor serves as additional validation that V-locity provides our customers with dramatically faster application performance gains from a 100% software solution. Our customers experience unprecedented boosts in application performance, typically doubling or tripling the productivity of applications on their existing infrastructure.”
Performance bottlenecks from I/O inefficiencies increasingly plague enterprises with an expensive and unsustainable business model of reactively buying more flash or spindles to satisfy application performance challenges. V-locity eliminates this issue with software intelligence that addresses the problem of increasingly smaller, more fractured, and random I/O that penalizes application performance the most.
