Our Score: 82%
What is V-locity?

If you are not satisfied with the product, you can get your money back in 90 days. Download a 30-day trial to understand if the application is suitable for your needs before investing your money.
V-locity resolves the two main I/O issues in virtual environments that take up 50% of bandwidth from virtual machine (VM). This scenario affects the performance of both spindle and flash storage systems. V-locity is a transparent software solution that resolves this issue with clean and large contiguous writes and reads. As a result, more payload is provided with every I/O operation.
On top of that, V-locity reduces I/O to storage by caching hot reads from available DRAM. Nothing needs to be assigned for cache since V-locity automatically adjusts to what is unused. Most consumers serve 50% of their read traffic if at least 4GB of memory is free during peak operation. However, if a system is short on memory, the product’s caching engine entirely backs off.
Product Quality Score:
- Easy license and asset management across a wide array of locations and environments
- Fast deployment even in complex environments
- Ongoing performance validation
- Support for different license models (subscription-based, enterprise site licenses, or perpetual)
List of Benefits
In our WonderFox reviews the software has been distinguished with our Great User Experience Award and Rising Star of 2017 Award:
V-locity is ideal for virtualized organizations that have intensive I/O workloads as it scales easily with workload intensity. This means you can use it for applications running backup, file servers, SharePoint, Exchange, CRM, business intelligence apps, OLTP, EHR/EMR (MEDITECH), VDI, ERP, SQL/Oracle/SAP, and more.
V-locity is recommended for both client-facing applications where performance is sluggish during peak load as well as back office reports and batch jobs that take a long time to complete. The product enhances efficiency without being expensive and does not cause disruption in performance. Another advantage is V-locity has almost-zero overhead which means there is negligible impact on compute resources.
A major highlight of V-locity is it quantifies the time saved from its improvements. The product displays a time-saved dashboard that tells you the ROI you gain by deploying it. You can download a 30-day trial to learn how much time V-locity can help to save on your most complex application. In addition, you can also download the free I/O assessment tool to learn which systems are affected by I/O issues that V-locity can help to resolve.
V-locity comes with a web-based Management Console that enables effortless deployment and management of the application in the cloud or on-premises in a physical or virtual environment. You get central control and command of configuration, licenses, assets, and performance management. As a result, you can deploy V-locity to thousands of physical servers and VMs in just a few clicks, utilize the web-based interface to manage all licenses, and support different pricing models.
