Ovum Analyst Firm Highlights Condusiv Technologies V-locity VM Accelerator as One of the Quickest, Easiest, and Most Cost-Efficient Ways to Improve VM Performance

Ovum's Report Is Available to Ovum Clients on Its Research Database, or by Contacting Condusiv Technologies

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - January 28, 2014) - Condusiv ™ Technologies, the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses has today announced that Ovum, a leader in providing clients with independent and objective analysis that enables them to make better business and technology decisions, has published an "On the Radar" report on Condusiv Technologies entitled, Providing improved performance from virtualized environments. The report is available to Ovum clients through Ovum's research database and through Condusiv Technologies at: http://learn.condusiv.com/rs/condusivtechnologies/images/WP_Ovum_On_the_Radar_Condusiv_V-locity.pdf

"Ovum believes there is a need for increased performance of many medium and large VM farms. The problem with the Microsoft Windows operating system is that it is not optimized for virtual environments, and as a result suffers from performance problems due to the way I/O operations are managed," said Roy Illsley, Ovum's Principle Analyst, Software - IT Solutions. "Condusiv has recognized this weakness and has developed a simple, non-intrusive solution to accelerating VM performance by correctly matching the I/O read and write operations to the required pattern for the workload. Ovum believes V-locity® may be one of the most innovative technologies in 2014 that can enable CIOs to improve productivity by reducing ongoing storage costs. This is particularly significant because traditional approaches to improved performance are mostly hardware-driven, resulting in increased capital and operational costs as well as being more disruptive to deploy. Ovum considers V-locity to be one of the quickest, easiest, and most cost-efficient ways to improve VM performance."

"On the Radar" is part of Ovum's series of research notes that highlights up-and-coming vendors that bring innovative ideas, products, or business models to their markets. They bear watching for their impact on markets and could be suitable for certain enterprise and public sector IT organizations.

"Our V-locity VM acceleration software is a 100% software approach to increasing storage performance by 50% or more without new hardware. CIOs need business value for their company, the last thing an IT director needs to show his boss is a bill for more disk or hybrid arrays," said Jerry Baldwin, Condusiv Chief Executive Officer. "Most solutions require some type of new hardware which means high CAPEX costs associated with new hardware, soft costs associated with deploying and managing, and increased OPEX costs in energy and floor space. V-locity is 1/10th the cost of the hardware alternative, it deploys in minutes with zero disruption - requiring no tuning or ongoing management. We are proud to have quickly amassed over 1,600 V-locity VM enterprise customers and to be recognized by Ovum."

The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale.
