“It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.” – Bruce Lee
Removing the nonessential is a key element of simplicity and efficiency, yet it is deceptively difficult to accomplish. We need reminding. And then more reminding.
When I get too caught-up in what’s on my desk, in Outlook, on the calendar, I get on the phone with one of our V-locity customers and I remember what we’re doing here. Why I pull into the Condusiv parking lot every day. We hack away at the inessentials, and in doing so, we enable our customers to work better, faster, more efficiently, without buying more hardware to achieve it.
We’re very pleased to announce V-locity version 5. In this release, V-locity is now bundled with the V-locity Management Console, giving IT organizations the visibility, command, and control to optimize applications and maximize users’ efficiency—proactively managing I/O and its impact on performance across the entire environment.
Enterprise-class and cloud-ready, the V-locity Management Console enables seamless deployment and centralized management of V-locity on-premises in a virtual or physical environment, or in the cloud. With central control of assets, configuration, and performance management, admins can deploy V-locity to thousands of VMs and physical servers in just five clicks, manage a large number of licenses, and support various pricing models.
- Central command and control with web-based management from a single pane of glass across geographic locations
- Fast, non-disruptive deployment to even the most complex multi-site and hybrid environments
- Auto-detection of virtual and physical server environments for easy asset and license management
- Flexible pricing options from site licenses, subscription, or perpetual volume licenses
- Single solution for virtual and physical servers
- V-locity alert management with email notifications based on customized I/O performance profiles for any application
- Ongoing performance validation of V-locity for ROI reporting capabilities
No more needle-in-the-haystack approach to troubleshooting. No more contending with a disjointed view of the environment. No more lack of understanding what’s happening from server to network to storage.
Maybe you’ve virtualized, maybe you’ve gone cloud, maybe you’re using VDI to ease management of so many endpoints… whatever the case—in any of these scenarios—the marketing message is always simplification.
And while simplification might be partly real, each of these strategies comes with an inherent problem: I/O. More and more I/O, which leads to serious performance degradation, more hardware to throw at the problem, increasingly formidable data centers, and more hours spent troubleshooting and stressing out. The root of the problem is I/O.
And V-locity is software that dramatically reduces I/O—literally overnight. And now it comes with the V-locity Management Console to make managing complex environments more efficient than ever.
So today I channel Bruce Lee and his thoughts on simplicity, on hacking away at the inessentials. That’s what we’re doing at Condusiv. That’s the vision of V-locity version 5. Enabling organizations to perform faster, better, simpler, happier.
