V-locity Reduces I/O to SAN by 61% for 3X faster SQL Report Queries
Bell Mobility had already built a world-class IT infrastructure and now needed a way to stay ahead of the performance demand curve. V-locity proved to be the answer: a software solution that would reduce latency and free up bandwidth to support the increase in traffic that every IT manager knows is coming.
Already leveraging leading virtualization, storage, and networking technologies in its data centers, Bell Mobility's Adam Moore, who is part of the OSS (Operations Support Systems) Integration team, needed a way to improve IOPS and reduce latency.
The team manages a complex environment comprising web servers, file servers, Active Directory, SQL, Citrix farms, and VMs hosted for internal clients. SQL is part of the VMware infrastructure where both off-the-shelf and internally developed applications store their data.
Faced with significant data growth—and a need for faster delivery of that data to meet SLAs with internal customers—Bell Mobility needed an efficient way to gain higher performance while reducing operational overhead—freeing the team to focus on more strategic initiatives.
The team initiated an evaluation of Condusiv's V-locity I/O reduction software on 16 servers. With V-locity's embedded Benefit Analyzer, the team gained reporting functionality that demonstrated a 61% reduction in I/O to the SAN, freeing up bandwidth and enabling data to process 98% faster by eliminating bottlenecks caused by split I/Os.
