ACO-powered Veloxum optimization for physical and virtualized server infrastructure
Many organizations have invested heavily in desktop virtualization projects in order to achieve the cost savings presented to them as part of an ROI model. But without continuous tuning of the server platforms that they run on, 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 server-based 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 Veloxum means for the customer is that they can increase the number of virtual desktop clients per host, running a greater number of client 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. In addition, better running servers mean less time spend by IT personnel chasing problems. Veloxum customers typically see a return on investment period of less than 6 months.
Veloxum supports most major 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.
