New V-locity 3 Virtual Platform Disk Optimizer Released at VMworld

by Colleen Toumayan 31. August 2011 02:20

Cures Pains from I/O Bottlenecks, Slow VMs, Slow Migration, Resource Conflicts, 

Wasted Storage Space and Slow Backup Speeds

Diskeeper Corporation announced at VMworld the release of new V-locity® 3 virtual platform disk optimizer for VMware®

V-locity 3 delivers invisible background optimization to give maximum I/O performance on virtual servers. 

V-locity 3 now has full integration with VMware ESXi as well as existing support for other platforms such as ESX, and Microsoft Hyper-V™. Other developments include V-Aware™ technology which detects external resource usage from other virtual machines on the virtual platform and eliminates resource contention that would otherwise exist on the same Host Server. New CogniSAN™ technology detects external resource usage within a shared storage system, such as a SAN, and allows for transparent optimization by never competing for resources utilized by other VMs over the same storage infrastructure. CogniSAN does this without intruding in any way into SAN-layer operations. Lastly is the new automatic zeroing of free space which is a powerful engine that zeros out unused data blocks on virtual disks and makes virtual disk compaction easy.

Diskeeper has long been a popular compliment for design and engineering software systems, including by the the most popular design and enginerring software company itself:

“Diskeeper indeed provided the ROI we expected. We are very satisfied. I have been using your product on my personal desktop and at work for the past few versions. It always proved to be a valuable product for transparent defrag and overall performance. 

Prior to installing Diskeeper our systems were almost unresponsive. This easy deployment was done right away as Diskeeper was much needed. It is a fine product that we rely upon.  It was reported to me that the automatic defrag did not take any visible resources or produce any slower performance which was really appreciated. 

The automatic defrag also helped overall performance greatly on the files sytem access. One of the folders has millions of files in it with no subfolders and it was almost inaccessible before the Diskeeper implementation due to the fragmentation level being very high”

by Michael 17. August 2011 08:52

Diskeeper Corporation has teamed up with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd for the global launch of ExpressCache™ intelligent SSD caching technology. Samsung is the first OEM to announce public deployment of ExpressCache, premiering it in their new Series 7 GAMER notebook PC at the World Cyber Games (WCG) in Germany.

"There is a huge, measurable performance boost with ExpressCache technology installed in Samsung''s new Series 7 GAMER notebook PC," notes Diskeeper EVP for Technology, Mr. Paul Raphael. "While the top gamers will be the first to experience it, anyone with high performance computing needs can benefit from ExpressCache technology implementation. We''re thrilled to have the privilege and opportunity to launch it worldwide with Samsung first."

ExpressCache intelligent SSD caching technology is licensed to OEMs to provide PC users with significant reduction in boot times and lightning fast launches of application and frequently accessed data files. This software technology coupled with a small Solid State Drive (SSD) and HDD provides the look, feel and responsiveness of pure SSD systems, at a fraction of the cost. By placing it in the Samsung Series 7 GAMER, ExpressCache delivers incredible performance even for the most demanding applications and games:

"With the Series 7 GAMER we have delivered a notebook PC offering the ultimate performance and incredible gaming features," said Kyuho Uhm, Senior Vice President of the IT Solutions Business at Samsung Electronics. "The market for specialized gaming products is extremely discerning, so it is a challenge to provide a gaming notebook PC that can compete with desktop PCs. Despite all the challenges, we have created a product of the highest standard that appeals directly to gamers'' true passions, which can be met at the turn of a dial to deliver optimum performance for a wide variety of different activities."

Two Benefits of V-locity on Virtual Platforms

by karen 16. August 2011 03:36

A major concern with virtual guest operating systems in a virtualized environment is the possible resource contention introduced as each virtual guest operates independent of the others.

With respect to storage, Diskeeper Corporation’s V-locity 3.0 virtual platform disk optimizer mitigates over-utilization in two ways:

First, each V-locity Guest installation coordinates resource scheduling with a centrally installed V-locity Host Agent.  These guests automatically discover the V-locity Host Agent following installation. Once connected together in this fashion, V-locity Guests cooperate to complete each of their defragmentation tasks in a manner most efficient to the virtual server's resources as a whole.  

Second, the automatic zeroing of free space feature ensures that unused space on virtual drives is zeroed out and compacted in such a way that when a virtual guest is migrated to a different virtual server via VMotion, only the allocated data is transferred.  This speeds up the VMotion process and decreases the load on the shared storage subsystem.

RainWorx specializes in Online Auction Software.  Our hosted web sites are mostly our Auction Software customers.  As such, every auction listing (for each customer, on each server) has one or more images associated, so we have a very high volume of images being uploaded which could potentially create a lot of fragmentation.
