We installed Veloxum on a number of servers and found that we got an average of 30 percent more server utilization
Palo Alto, CA (Vocus) November 30, 2010
Veloxum™ Corporation, a performance management company, today announced that Brooklyn, NY–based Maimonides Medical Center has achieved major efficiency increases and cost reductions using Veloxum for VMware to tune its enterprise servers.
Approaching the user limit of its virtualized infrastructure, Maimonides deployed Veloxum with Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) throughout the data center to optimize its complex virtualized infrastructure configuration settings. By selecting Veloxum for enterprise-wide server optimization, Maimonides saved more than $200,000 by significantly increasing utilization of its existing VMware servers and eliminating unnecessary purchases of additional servers. As a result, Veloxum is now a standard part of the medical center’s virtualization plans.
“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. “Using Veloxum, we saved more than $120,000 on hardware in the first year alone by better using what we already purchased. Veloxum paid for itself in only a few months.”
In addition to reduced capital expenditures (CAPEX), Maimonides also saved approximately $100,000 in ongoing operating expense (OPEX) that would have been required by other solutions for installation and maintenance. That’s because Veloxum does not require additional specialists for implementation.
“We are delighted that such an important medical center as Maimonides selected Veloxum to realize the full power and capacity of their entire virtual enterprise,” said Kevin Cornell, CEO of Veloxum. “Helping customers like Maimonides achieve dramatic reductions in their CAPEX and OPEX spending is not only extremely gratifying, it also reinforces our ability to positively impact the potential of virtual environments.”
Maimonides has experienced many other benefits with Veloxum ACO. “We found that the constantly optimized environment ensured that the software did not run into resource issues, crashed less often, and provided a more responsive end-user experience,” said Sandu. “Veloxum allows me to keep both my users – doctors – and the CFO happy. A product does not get much better than that.”
Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) sets Veloxum apart from other server and application monitoring-only tools
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 settings, requiring active performance and capacity tuning. Without this, workload densities fall and virtualization costs soar. Veloxum created its comprehensive enterprise server optimization solution, Active Continuous Optimization (ACO), to solve this problem by automatically tuning server performance and maximizing server capacity.
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.
Veloxum’s optimization software utilizes its patent-pending Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) process to attack causes of underutilization. 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 and their associated energy, cooling, and data-center footprint costs.
Veloxum solutions provide IT management with the ability to analyze their complete physical and virtual environments, and automatically take action to correct underutilization 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.
In addition to VMware, Veloxum also 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.
