BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - June 10, 2014) - Condusiv Technologies, the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses, today announced the release of a new product addition to the V-locity family, V-locity Endpoint. V-locity Endpoint expands Condusiv's I/O optimization software platform from virtualized Windows servers to Windows PCs. V-locity Endpoint alleviates the issue of performance degradation on a Windows PC by caching "hot data" within available system memory and preventing performance-robbing fragmentation in real-time at the OS level before files are written to disk. V-locity Endpoint is true "Set It and Forget It"
"Many of the techniques we innovated to reduce I/O to disk and solid-state drives in virtual environments are equally relevant to Windows PCs. While everyone knows the frustration of a Windows PC becoming progressively slower over time, not everyone realizes that this can be reversed with a simple software solution: V-locity Endpoint leverages patented DRAM caching and patented fragmentation prevention to not only keep PCs running like new, but in fact, run better than new. As a result, organizations get more productivity from employees, more life from existing hardware, and reduce persistent help desk calls that hamper IT staff productivity," said Craig Jensen, CEO of Condusiv Technologies.
V-locity employs a proprietary software engine to alleviate the problem of the "I/O Blender Effect" in virtual environments by sequentializing otherwise random traffic from VMs to the host, V-locity Endpoint employs the same engine, IntelliWrite
"The Windows built-in defragmentation utility only deals with the problem after the fact -- after the data has already been stored in a performance-penalized state. Not to mention, since nearly all computer resources are used to run the defragmentation process, administrators have to schedule disk maintenance after hours. But nearly all corporate laptops and desktops are turned off during the night, so the issue of performance degradation keeps getting worse. V-locity Endpoint comes to the aid of IT administrators by keeping their fleet of laptops and desktops running like new without having to schedule any disk maintenance. And, with the addition of DRAM caching, users will find their laptops and PCs running even better than new," said Jensen.
While CPU performance has been doubling every 18 months, disk performance has remained relatively flat for years. With the growing performance gap between CPU and disk drives, system administrators can ill afford to ignore the one performance degradation issue that hampers a PC the most -- file fragmentation. V-locity Endpoint offers the only proprietary solution to prevent fragmentation from occurring and does so in real-time with near zero overhead since all optimizations occur using only idle resources.
"I'm happy to say that V-locity Endpoint not only brings a new era of performance optimization to hard disk drives, but to solid-state drives as well. Users of solid-state drives (SSDs) find their SSD no longer holds to its manufactured performance spec the longer it is used. While an SSD should not normally be defragmented, fragmentation prevention has enormous benefits. Our HyperFast
V-locity Endpoint Features
®DRAM caching technology reduces I/Os to disk by intelligently caching active data within available system memory.
®write optimization technology prevents fragmentation from occurring so files are written in an optimal, sequential state.
®intelligent monitoring technology ensures all "background" operations within the system run with zero resource impact on current activities since only idle resources are used. It also accounts for remote access to local drives.
- Instant Defrag
™monitors and fixes fragmented files that are known to cause performance problems that were not caught by IntelliWrite in real-time.
®technology for SSDs makes writing the SSD faster without causing excessive SSD wear
®technology speeds boot times by strategically moving files into sequential order on hard drives to minimize the number of I/O requests and random I/Os during the boot process.
- Enhanced reporting displays health and performance gains for the system. Reports include: Before/After Benefit Analyzer report, Recent activity report, and 7-day history
- A central management console that can deploy V-locity Endpoint to hundreds of PCs over the network within minutes

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
