Veloxum™ Corporation, a performance management company, today announced that they have signed an agreement with Europe’s largest independent technology solutions provider, SCC, to deliver service, support and distribution of Veloxum’s optimization products, such as Veloxum for Enterprise, throughout the European market.
SCC provides products and services to help customers optimize their core IT investments. Veloxum selected SCC to distribute its Veloxum for Enterprise optimization product, with its patent-pending Active Continuous Optimization (ACO) process, due to SCC’s unparalleled position in the European Enterprise space, technology and virtualization experience, and track record of cost saving technology solutions implementation.
“As more and more of our Enterprise customers throughout Europe are rapidly moving their enterprise infrastructures to a virtualized model, they need to implement powerful, next generation virtualization and optimization tools to realize the significant cost and performance improvements that are possible. We are very delighted to have identified, and be the first UK reseller to work with, a leader such as Veloxum and utilize their ACO-based virtualization management solution on behalf of our clients. This gives SCC unparalleled abilities to rapidly and continuously manage their complex, distributed systems throughout Europe and the rest of the world,” Rhys Sharp, CTO at SCC.
Veloxum actively and continuously optimizes server infrastructure, maximizing performance and increasing workload density by as much as 50 percent. Veloxum’s product, Veloxum for Enterprise, enables its users to optimize both physical and virtual operating system (OS) settings — allowing enterprises to realize the full performance and workload density 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.
“SCC’s deep technology experience and relationships in the Virtualization space make them an outstanding partner for Veloxum as we work to bring significant cost savings and exceptional performance to customers throughout Europe. Our partnership with SCC will enable companies and other major organizations there to quickly leverage the powerfully increased virtualization efficiency and reduced TCO provided by Veloxum’s ACO-process products,” Kevin Cornell, Chief Executive Officer of Veloxum.
ACO-powered Veloxum optimization for physical and virtualized server infrastructure
Many organizations invested heavily in virtualization projects in order to achieve cost savings from reduced server expenditures. But without continuous tuning of server platforms and the applications they run, it is difficult to achieve these results with adequate performance. Veloxum actively and continuously tunes server settings to deliver both optimum performance and workload densities.
Veloxum’s ACO uses patent-pending algorithms to calculate the optimum server configuration settings that improve all aspects of performance. Veloxum then automatically implements and logs these new configurations, and acts as a continuous ‘tune-up’ service to keep configurations optimized, without requiring any user intervention or a specialist’s skills. What this means for the customer is that they can both increase performance and guest-to-host density, running a greater number of VMware instances without increasing physical server count. This leads to a dramatic cost savings in terms of deferred capital expenditure on new hardware and a 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.
