Citrix Application Performance Management
VeloBit is a provider of high performance, solid state drive caching software. It has recently come out with a new product, the VeloBit HuperCache solution, which is available for VMware and for Citrix XenServer. The SSD caching software now supports a broad range of operating systems and hypervisors, while at the same time helping companies avoid hardware vendor lock-in.
The VeloBit solutions can help IT managers who are looking to get more out of their virtualized environments. The software can increase virtual machine density and accelerate performance of storage, applications and data bases.
A recent study conducted by Demartek showed that the VeloBit Hypercachse can increase performance of VMware by a factor of more than four times. This would make it among the fastest VMware SSD caching software solutions on the market. It was also found to reduce the cost per transaction by over 60 percent when compared to comparable solutions. The solution uses patented algorithms to take advantage of specific qualities of solid state drives.
"Adding support for VMware and Citrix XenServer merely three months after our first product was released demonstrates VeloBit's commitment to rapidly meeting customer needs," said Duncan McCallum, co-founder and CEO of VeloBit, in a statement. "Looking ahead, we will deliver additional solutions for VMware and other virtualization environments in the near future."
