Important advantages: faster data throughput for virtual storage and host-I/O increased density of virtual storage platform reliability improved elimination of resource conflicts increased optimized resource utilization of virtual memory within a shared storage system hardware – lifetime lower operating costs all operations take place fully automatically and transparently new features: V-aware recognizes the external resource use by other virtual machines on the virtual platform and resolves resource conflicts, which would otherwise exist on the same host server. In a question-answer forum Gary Kelly was the first to reply. CogniSAN detects the external resource usage within a common system of storage such as SAN and enables transparent optimization by does not will compete for resources through other virtual Storage within the same storage infrastructure to be used. Important: CogniSAN accomplished this without any disruption of operations at the SAN layer. (Source: Rick Garcia CBS). Automatic recovery of disk space this powerful engine eliminates unused data blocks on virtual hard disks and facilitates the virtual disk compaction. “You also ensures that a VMotion (VMware) or live migration (Microsoft) virtual disk migration hard disk on-the-fly” condense. The automatic space recovery takes place online and requires no maintenance window.
V-locity 3-everyone its optimization settings can adapt special autodetect of virtual hard disks so that the type of virtual hard disk/functions that are used by the virtual memory, such as dynamic/thin slabs and linked clones, to achieve maximum performance. Components and system requirements consists of two core components: V-locity 3 guest can be installed on all Windows virtual machines. V-locity 3 host agent can on each Windows virtual machine on VMware ESX/ESXi or be installed directly via the Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor. The host needs a Windows 2008 (R2) server with VMware ESX and ESXi, Hyper-V function and server versions 4.0 or later. Guest supports the following operating systems: Windows XP (requires SP2), Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (or R2). V-locity 3 was developed for significant performance and efficiency of all VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V platforms.
