Condusiv Technologies on Monday launched the latest version of its V-Locity software, which aims to speed up VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines without adding new storage hardware.
The company, formerly known as Diskeeper, is aiming to derive 30 percent of its revenue from V-Locity 4. Today, V-Locity accounts for 10 percent of sales.
V-Locity 4 is designed to speed up the read and write process at the service to boost virtual machine performance. Condusiv is claiming a 50 percent improvement on response times. The upshot is that more virtual machines can be crammed onto a server by minimizing bottlenecks.
For Condusiv, V-Locity 4 could position the company well in networked storage environments.
According to the company, the latest V-Locity includes:
- A new user interface.
- A technology called IntelliWrite that prevents Windows from breaking files into pieces and then writing them again.
- V-Aware, which detects external resource usage from virtual machines.
- Technology called CogniSAN to optimize VMs.
The base pricing tier for V-Locity 4 is 2-9 cores. The per core price at this level is $269. The minimum configuration would be 2 core with a list price of $538. Most systems would have at least 4 cores and equate to a list price of $1,076.
