Such out of tune parameters are creating a significant drag on ROI for many large organizations.
Scotts Valley, CA (Vocus) November 17, 2010
Veloxum™ Corporation, a performance management company, today announced Veloxum for VMWare. Veloxum for VMWare actively and continuously optimizes the VMware infrastructure, maximizing performance and increasing workload density as much as 50 percent. Veloxum for VMWare is an out-of-band solution that uses the existing systems and tunes the various components within manufacturer supported settings.
As the first Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) infrastructure solution for virtual environments, Veloxum transforms the process of optimizing complex virtualized infrastructure configuration settings and allowing enterprises to realize the full potential of their IT infrastructure. As a result, customers are already achieving up to 50 percent more utilization per server. The bottom line: annual savings of $300K to $500K for every $1 million spent on virtualization by major IT organizations.
Today, IT organizations are facing an unfolding crisis that limits their ability to deliver the workload densities and ROI promised by virtualization. Virtualized environments contain hundreds of interrelated setting that require active performance and capacity tuning. Without this, workload densities fall and virtualization costs soar.
Because of this problem many enterprises operate at 30 to 50 percent below full utilization. This translates to millions of dollars in unnecessary investment simply because enterprises are not squeezing the most utilization out of their existing servers. Veloxum created its comprehensive enterprise server optimization solution to solve this problem by automatically tuning server performance and maximizing server capacity.
“Data center virtualization is one of IT’s top priorities because of its promise to save money through better server utilization. But if these servers are not continuously and correctly tuned, these efforts can be compromised through poor performance and reduced workload densities,” said Kevin Cornell, CEO of Veloxum. “Such out of tune parameters are creating a significant drag on ROI for many large organizations.”
Veloxum’s ACO-driven software improves enterprise performance —in some cases generating 50 percent more server utilization— by targeting and tuning the heart of the server, the operating system. This maximizes the efficient use of all server and client components that depend upon OS interaction, including applications, databases, CPU, memory, network and storage. Veloxum’s ACO solution provides a significant alternative to adding servers, upgrading bandwidth or simply tolerating declining application performance. ACO makes it possible for customers to realize the total cost savings of virtualization by fully and continuously tuning their ever-changing virtual environment.
“For years, the industry has been losing billions of dollars based on its belief that such an active optimization solution was not possible,” said Cornell. “This has become a major sore point for IT through the C-suite. We’ve created our ACO application so you can tune your servers for better performance just like you tune your car for better MPG, and reduce your IT’s Total Cost of Ownership.”
Dozens of organizations are currently realizing the benefits of Veloxum ACO, including Maimonides Medical Center. “We installed Veloxum on a number of servers and found that we got an average of 30 percent more server utilization,” said Gabriel Sandu, Senior Director of Technical Services at Maimonides Medical Center. “With Veloxum, we saved more than $120K on hardware in the first year by better using what we already had. Veloxum paid for itself in only a few months.”
Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) sets Veloxum apart from other server and application monitoring-only tools
Veloxum for VMWare utilizes the patent-pending Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) process to attack causes of under utilization. The ACO process unlocks the potential of existing server infrastructures to increase the efficiency of already installed systems, improving application performance across the enterprise without costly hardware upgrades or lowered guest densities.
Veloxum solutions provide IT management with the option to analyze their complete physical and virtual environments, and automatically take action to correct under-utilization and poor performance. Unlike other enterprise optimization or VIO solutions, ACO can implement powerful optimization recommendations manually with the push of a button, or automatically so that organizations can realize maximum optimization benefits and cost savings without hiring additional staff.
Veloxum supports most enterprise platforms, including Linux, AIX, SUN and Windows OS with supplied OS modules, and optimizes popular applications such as Exchange, SharePoint, SQLserver, Lotus Notes and Oracle.
“Beyond the tremendous green computing benefits, our solution enables IT organizations to dramatically reduce CAPEX and OPEX spending, and simultaneously improve performance,” said Cornell. “With Veloxum, customer IT departments have a compelling and active solution to continuously and cost-effectively capture the full power and capacity of their entire virtual enterprise -- in other words, get what you paid for.”
