“Truly dynamic ‘Leader’ companies that are managing their infrastructure with an automated, holistic process and trusted software are gaining the most from their investment in virtualization technologies,” Dick Csaplar, Senior Analyst, Aberdeen Research

Veloxum ™ Corporation, a performance management company, today announced that its Active Continuous Optimization (ACO)-based Veloxum for Enterprise product, which provides users with up to 50 percent more capacity and performance per server, demonstrates the recommended practices found in the Aberdeen Group’s research report Managing Virtualized Applications: Optimizing Dynamic Infrastructures published April 12, 2011.

Aberdeen’s report states that ‘active and automatic optimization of the virtualization infrastructure provides significant and measurable operational benefits’ and that ‘leaders’ in the performance of their virtualized infrastructure are twice as likely to utilize such automated software management of their virtualized servers and storage.’ According to the report, ‘companies who define the metrics they want to manage, collect and analyze that data in real-time, have a pre-defined plan for dealing with foreseeable issues and allow their virtualization management software to automatically make the required changes have a much higher density of applications on their servers and experience significant reductions in application downtime.’

“Truly dynamic ‘Leader’ companies that are managing their infrastructure with an automated, holistic process and trusted software are gaining the most from their investment in virtualization technologies,” said Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst and author of the study. “Veloxum’s ACO capability makes them one of the few companies that have everything in place for such forward thinking companies to make this vision a reality today.”

Veloxum actively and continuously optimizes server infrastructure, maximizing performance and increasing workload density by as much as 50 percent. Veloxum’s VMware solution, Veloxum for Enterprise, enables its users to optimize complex virtual server operating system (OS) settings — allowing enterprises to realize the full potential of their IT infrastructure. This maximizes the efficient use of all server and client components that depend upon OS interaction, including applications, databases, CPU, memory, network and storage.

“Aberdeen’s study confirms the importance of the move toward active, continuous optimization by IT leaders who are looking to realize the full potential and cost savings of their virtual infrastructure,” said Kevin Cornell, CEO of Veloxum. “Veloxum’s physical and virtual enterprise environment optimization application allows these IT leaders a proven methodology to tune their operating system and application settings to fix the capacity and performance issues that can cost companies unforeseen amounts of time and money each year.”

Maimonides Medical Center, a New York-based Veloxum client featured in Aberdeen’s report, has achieved major efficiency increases and cost reductions using Veloxum for VMware to tune its enterprise servers. Selecting Veloxum for its 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.”
