The end-to-end virtualization visibility Veloxum provides allows users to not only understand where performance issues occurred, but how Veloxum’s optimization helped to fix them, said Nick Gerasimatos, CEO for Elastic Sky Inc.
Scotts Valley, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 22, 2011
Veloxum™ Corporation, a performance management company, today announced the addition of significant new reporting and monitoring capabilities to their Veloxum for Enterprise product, allowing customers to more easily and powerfully track the “before-and-after” of the performance and utilization improvements enabled by ACO-powered Veloxum optimization for physical and virtualized server infrastructure.
With these enhancements, Veloxum now consolidates optimization, monitoring, and reporting into one package and provides a special API for integration of the Veloxum optimization solution into existing Enterprise reporting packages. This provides the ability to monitor and report on the status of performance metrics for virtual host and guest OS Veloxum-optimized environments, with the same capabilities for supported applications, such as the “Microsoft stack”, Outlook, Exchange and SharePoint.
“The addition of Veloxum’s new reporting capabilities to their already existing optimization technology provide a real asset to IT organizations,” said Nick Gerasimatos, CEO for Elastic Sky Inc., a virtualization consulting company to large corporations like American Express, Wells Fargo and LPL Financial. “The end-to-end virtualization visibility Veloxum provides allows users to not only understand where performance issues occurred, but how Veloxum’s optimization helped to fix them. The monitoring penetrates into the operating systems and provides cross-platform, holistic views of OS metrics through multiple-layers of virtualization, both host and guests.”
Veloxum actively and continuously optimizes the server infrastructure, maximizing performance and increasing workload density as much as 50 percent. Veloxum’s VMware solution, Veloxum for Enterprise, is an out-of-band solution that uses the existing systems and tunes the various components within manufacturer supported settings.
“Veloxum’s physical and virtual enterprise environment optimization application lets customers tune their operating system and application settings continually and automatically to fix the capacity and performance issues that can cost companies unforeseen amounts of time and money each year,” said Kevin Cornell, CEO of Veloxum. “Our new reporting and monitoring capabilities go a step further by allowing IT-to-C-suite customers to more closely observe and report on the performance improvements gained with Veloxum, all while potentially saving millions of dollars in unnecessary CAPEX and OPEX spending.”
“This reporting capability allows IT personnel to show their organizations the benefits of virtualization and optimization dollars spent within the data-center,” concluded Gerasimatos.
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.
Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) sets Veloxum apart from other server and application monitoring-only tools
Many organizations have invested heavily in virtualization projects in order to achieve the cost savings presented to them as part of an ROI model. But without continuous tuning of server platforms to the applications they are running, it is difficult to achieve these results. Veloxum actively and continuously tunes server settings to deliver optimum performance and virtual-to-physical densities.
Veloxum’s ACO uses patent-pending algorithms to calculate the optimum server configuration settings that improve all aspects of performance. Veloxum then implements and logs these new optimal configurations, and acts as a continuous ‘tune-up’ service to configure elements automatically without requiring any user intervention or specialist skills.
What this means for the customer is that they can increase guest to host density, running a greater number of VMware instances without increasing physical server capacity. This leads to dramatic cost savings in terms of deferred capital expenditure on new hardware and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the areas of support, maintenance, powering and cooling requirements. Veloxum customers typically see a Return on Investment period of less than 6 months.
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.
