BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - March 03, 2014) - Condusiv™ Technologies, the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses, today announced the release of V-locity® version 5 I/O reduction and caching software that boosts application performance from virtual or physical server to storage without additional hardware. V-locity version 5 delivers midsize to large enterprise customers up to 2 or 3 times performance gains on their most I/O intensive applications, allowing them to achieve far more productivity from the infrastructure they already have.
According to IDC, data has exploded with 75X growth of files over ten years. At Symposium 2013, Gartner expected to see 25X I/O growth every two years. With hardware performance growing an optimistic 8X over ten years, it's clear that hardware is not cost efficiently keeping up with the growth of I/O as organizations quickly find themselves in an unsustainable business model of buying more and more server and storage hardware for increased performance. This growing performance chasm has created a conundrum for organizations on how they will bridge this challenge without losing more and more of their IT budget to hardware in a Software Defined Everything World.
In the latest "On the Radar" technology brief from leading analyst firm, Ovum, it was stated, "Ovum believes V-locity may be one of the most innovative technologies in 2014 that can enable CIOs to improve productivity while reducing ongoing storage costs."
V-locity version 5 is an I/O optimization software solution that increases application performance in virtual, physical and cloud environments by 50% or more, with many customers seeing 2 to 3 times performance gain without the cost of additional hardware.
"With V-locity, we've seen a 157% decrease in I/O to the SAN. The result is processing times on some of the larger files went from 5 minutes to 1 minute," said Giuseppe Debari, Network Manager, Myron Corporation, one of the largest multinational companies that manufactures and distributes promotional products.
"After deploying V-locity, we experienced 80-90% improvement for SQL, email and CRM. Sluggishness and performance issues just don't exist anymore. There is no longer a need to replace or upgrade our SAN architecture," said Robert Del Vecchio, IT Infrastructure Manager, Creative Office Pavilion, one of the nation's leading workplace consultants and office furniture dealers.
By optimizing I/O as close to the application as possible, at the Windows OS level, V-locity dramatically reduces the number of I/Os required for any given workload, thereby reducing latency and increasing bandwidth from server to network to storage. In addition to physical and cloud infrastructures, V-locity significantly improves the efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual platforms by optimizing reads and writes, allowing more data to be packaged into each I/O request while also caching frequently accessed data within available server memory. The result? Unprecedented application performance gains from a 100% software approach.
"Our customers reflect nearly every vertical including thousands of global enterprises, government agencies, independent software vendors (ISVs), and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide; we have identified the healthcare space as one of our fastest growing verticals. The quality of patient care depends on the ability to quickly load and process medical records. With some of the largest health organizations using V-locity, they have doubled and even tripled the performance of their EMR/EHR without adding additional hardware to achieve those increased levels of productivity," said Jerry Baldwin, Condusiv CEO. "V-locity's performance contribution can be seen as a dramatic business differentiator that delivers quantifiable business value by extending the efficiency of existing CAPEX investments while giving CIOs more control over their budget to invest in new innovation and bottom line growth."

Overcoming performance barriers with proven, patented IP
IntelliMemory™ Read I/O Optimization
Reduces I/O bottlenecks by intelligently caching active data.
Based on usage and time, V-locity's self-learning, application-aware intelligence caches data ahead of time on available server DRAM. Server-side caching eliminates unnecessary I/O on the storage layer and greatly improves response time by 50% or more.
Automatically prevents the Windows operating system from breaking files into multiple pieces and writing those pieces in a performance penalized manner. By optimizing random I/O traffic to behave sequentially, this proactive approach improves application performance by reducing the I/O requirement for any given workload.
V-locity includes a Benefit Analyzer feature that delivers a before and after performance comparison so users can validate performance before purchase commitment and share the report with supervisors and stakeholders to validate business value.

V-locity installs on all Windows virtual machines and supports Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (or R2) and Windows Server 2012 (or R2)
