Condusiv Technologies Named "Cool Vendor" by Gartner

Gartner's "Cool Vendor" Report Recognizes Companies Considered to Be Unique, Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2014) - Condusiv™ Technologies , the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses, today announced that it has been recognized in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2014 report by Gartner, Inc.

Emerging vendors offer hypervisor, server and storage administrators fresh answers for their application and storage performance challenges. This research details four companies that provide innovative storage capabilities via new delivery methods and performance management, and looks back at two past Cool Vendors. *

"We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to enable customers to greatly accelerate the power of information to improve business performance without the requirement of adding high priced hardware," said Robert Woolery, CMO of Condusiv Technologies. "Optimizing I/O at the top of the stack is a critical differentiator for V-locity®. V-locity optimizes at the Virtual Machine layer, which allows everything downstream including Virtual Machines, host servers, flash and disk storage to accrue maximum performance benefit while eliminating bottlenecks and delay. Our V-locity, I/O optimization software improves Windows application performance and can overcome the 'I/O blender' effect of server virtualization, thus improving storage throughput and response times while reducing hardware costs."

According to Gartner, IT managers often share common goals, including a need to modernize their server and storage infrastructures, improve quality of service and efficiency, while simultaneously containing costs. New server and storage components, solutions and management tools can help stakeholders build easier-to-manage, more efficient and more available infrastructures. Many organizations are evaluating technologies that will drive efficiency, such as higher-performing and more automated compute and storage, cloud-based solutions, and/or I/O products that allow for proactive problem avoidance and increased resource utilization and optimization. *

The I/O blender effect -- the mixing of I/O streams from VMs down to the hypervisor funneled into storage -- is a common occurrence in server-virtualized environments creating highly randomized I/O patterns penalizing server and storage performance. To overcome this, application, virtualization and storage administrators often treat the problem by using expensive flash technology or overprovision storage using more disk drives and wide striping to increase performance. V-locity cures the performance problem created by the I/O blender effect with its unique ability to optimize I/O as close to the application as possible dramatically reducing the number of I/Os required for any given workload increasing bandwidth from server to network to storage.

Condusiv's V-locity has amassed one of the largest virtualization followings rapidly approaching 2,000 customers delivering 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 in virtual and connected environments.
