Poor application performance was impacting every business unit, causing user complaints of excessive lag, email problems, and slow query times.
Creative Office Pavilion comprises a team of designers, architects, and project managers who work with massive drawings, PowerPoints, and database files. When application latency began to plague IT, the team needed a seamless solution to get business back on track— delivering the best possible experience to their users, with applications running at peak performance.
According to Robert Del Vecchio, IT Infrastructure Manager, his primary challenge was to “get data to his users quicker, without sluggishness.” Robert and the team were spending a disproportionate amount of time on server and storage health checks. “We were spending so much time troubleshooting, there was little time left for R&D or discovering new technologies,” he explains.
Finding V-locity was a “happy accident,” according to Robert—the result of searching online for SQL and application performance. After evaluating V-locity in a test environment, Robert’s team saw immediate improvement. “Not only did we see performance increase right away, I was no longer running to every server doing health checks constantly.” “To top it off,” he adds, “running V-locity was seamless. I just checked the logs occasionally to make sure it was doing what it should, and that was it.” After testing, Robert and team were convinced. “We deployed V-locity on every server in our VMware cluster to maintain the SAN because of the amount of traffic we have.” He continues, “We’re not a gigantic enterprise, but we’re big enough that we need this technology to keep us up and running efficiently.”
Creative Office Pavilion has been running V-locity over a year, giving Robert more than sufficient time to observe not only its impact on application and storage performance, but on deferring investment in additional hardware.
