Analysis shows VMTurbo Operations Manager increases orders per minute by 23%
(Boston, MA) June 10, 2015 – VMTurbo, the only demand-driven control platform for the software-defined data center, shared the findings from a recent analysis conducted by Principled Technologies. The study found that by executing VMTurbo’s recommendations, such as reallocation of memory and vCPU, and migrating mission-critical VMs to more efficiently leverage available storage resources, orders per minute completed by the application in Principled Technologies’ virtual test environment increased by 23.7%.
“In a virtualized application, every order counts [and] proper resource allocation is critical to achieving top application performance,” the Principled Technologies Report stated. “When you add VMTurbo to your environment, you can see the immediate improvement in performance from the first time you implement the recommended changes. Avoid the pitfalls of poorly allocated VM resources and give your virtualized every advantage by gaining control of your environment at every level.”
During the course of the study, Principled Technologies deployed VMTurbo into a DRS-enabled VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 cluster in order to test its capabilities. This cluster represents a typical unit of deploying mission-critical applications within enterprise datacenters. To create a realistic environment simulating an e-commerce platform, Principled Technologies deployed IIS-based Web servers to process requests from test clients, requesting data from back-end Microsoft SQL servers. VMTurbo recommendations included decreasing vCPU allocation for SQL Server VMs, allocating additional memory to increase performance and moving certain VMs to more responsive storage. Once applied across the board to all units of production deployments, these results illustrate that VMTurbo can provide guaranteed scale-out application performance for the entire enterprise workload.
“Studies have found that the modern online shopper will leave a website if it takes longer than two seconds to load,” said Yuri Rabover, Co-founder and SVP of Product Strategy at VMTurbo. “When the line between success and failure lies in just a few milliseconds of delay in application response time, companies cannot afford to lag in performance. The results of the study validate the importance of Demand-Driven Control in cloud and virtualized environments, and companies using VMTurbo will confidently deliver highly differentiated services to their users.”
