Oct. 3, 2011 - PRLog -- To maintain a profitable company it is important that the company's leaders do all that they can to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of the company's processes. Doing this results in faster turnaround on projects and reduces the costs associated with operating the business. Many companies are using virtualization platforms to improve their efficacy and reduce the amount of money they spend on outdated multiple server environments.

Multiple server environments have been used for years as companies' business management systems but by default they create a tremendous amount of waste. Each server is used to host a single application or operating system that the company uses. This keeps the information safe from corruption but also means that the extra space on the server is not used to store additional information. This space accumulates across the servers and creates inefficiencies.

Multiple server environments also create excess expenses due to the costs of the servers. Each server requires a company to supply it with power, store in a safe place and maintain the machine in addition to the purchase price. In an environment with many servers these costs can add up quickly.

Virtualization platforms eliminate the need for a company to purchase multiple servers. The information is condensed onto a single machine to eliminate the buildup of excess space and the costs associated with using multiple machines. The information stored on the virtual server is kept safe because each application or operating system is stored in its own secure area. If one area is corrupted the others can still be used and will not be affected.

Virtualization platforms are not without problems. Continuous unnecessary I/O generation clogs bandwidth, competition for shared resources can create conflicts that slow the system and space can be wasted when dynamic disks do not shrink when data are deleted. These problems cause the virtual platform to operate more slowly and limit their efficiency.

V-locity 3 is a virtualization platform disk optimizer that is designed to provide virtualization platforms with the best protection against the problems that can occur. Using unique technologies V-locity 3 creates optimal conditions on all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-v hypervisor virtual platforms.

IntelliWrite(r) technology is used to prevent most fragmentation before it happens. This eliminates the need for a later defrag process and keeps the system running smoothly. V-Aware(tm) detects external resource usage from other virtual machines to eliminate resource contention that can otherwise exist on the same Host Server. Using CogniSAN technology V-locity 3 will detect external storage usage on a shared storage system and allow for transparent optimization because it does not compete with other virtual machines.

Automatic zeroing of free space is an online process that zeroes out unused data blocks on virtual disks and makes virtual disk compaction easy. Using storage migration on a virtual platform can reclaim unused free space to improve VM Density and energy efficiency. Special Virtual Disk Auto Detection allows each V-locity Guest the ability to conform its optimization settings to the type of virtual disk that the machine is using.

Virtualization platforms improve a company's bottom line by eliminating the excesses of multiple server environments. Improving speed and efficiency are key aspects of improving business operations and reducing the overhead costs required to establish the business management system leaves more money in the budget for other priorities. Protecting a virtualization platform is critical to its ability to perform and there is no better way to protect it than by installing V-locity 3.
