VMETER SQM - QOS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE FOR APPLE VIDEO SANS

If you're running I/O-intensive video operations like playout or post-production with HD video, you may be looking for ways to increase the performance of your Apple SAN - without it, frame drops can occur interrupting streaming operations likeplayout and ingest.

Adding more RAID is one method for increasing SAN bandwidth, but it's an expensive, brute-forceway to improve performance. Vicom offers a simple, cost-effective alternative: install Vmeter SQMT software to manage quality of service on your SAN. Vmirror effectively increases SAN I/O capacity and ensures each client receives sufficient I/O bandwidth to meet its application needs.

Vmeter SQM Software

Installed on SAN-attached clients, Vmeter SQM raises the overall performance of Apple SANs by controlling the I/O access rates of attached workstations. When high-priority processes such as playout are running, Vmeter SQM ensures sufficient streaming bandwidth is available by "throttling" lower-priority SAN client access rates.The result: dramatic SAN performance improvement - as much as three times higher than with RAID system(s) alone.


Installed on SAN-attached Apple workstations, Vmeter SQM:
 •
Boosts SAN performance by as much as 3:1 through simple addition of software
 •
Ensures bandwidth is continuously available for all high-priority processes
 •
Dynamically limits workstation I/O demands according to preset levels
 •
Provides easy bandwidth monitoring
 •
Simplifies SAN capacity planning
 •
Works with or without Apple XSAN


Vmeter SQM software is shipped with Vmirror 4G appliances and is also available as a standalone application under single-unit and multi-client software site licenses. Please consult your Vicom reseller or Vicom sales representative for additional information.
