Slow-running applications on SQL were causing user productivity issues and infrastructure performance needed to be optimized before implementing VDI.
As Victor Community Support Services readied themselves for a virtual desktop deployment, they needed to optimize their infrastructure performance to avoid unnecessary slowdowns that would impact user productivity. Little did they know, V-locity would optimize their environment so significantly that they were able to reduce the I/O requirement from virtual server to storage by nearly 50% on their heaviest workloads.
“Even when we added what equates to three times the workload with our new VDI implementation, the IOPS demand from storage didn’t increase three-fold because of what V-locity is doing to reduce write I/O and read I/O at the VM layer. It’s been truly impressive. We call it the ‘V-locity effect.’”
“With V-locity and Nimble Storage together, it’s like having lightning performance at both ends of the spectrum,” commented Jamie Rabenstein, Information Technology Manager.
“Our financial team used to spend 30 minutes running a report in Great Plains sitting on SQL,” said Rabenstein. “The very next time they ran it after implementing V-locity, it only took 10 minutes. Every time after that, it has only taken 3 minutes due to V-locity’s self-learning algorithms. It’s been a lifesaver for them.”
"Now we roll out the V-locity red carpet for all of our systems,” added Rabenstein. “To not do that would be too painful for me to imagine. It truly can milk the hardware for everything it has. Anyone that needs low latency and high throughput loads should be using it.”
