Last week DinamiQs launched its new Virtual memory Extender. The Virtual Memory Extender or VME enables administrators to run with low memory on desktops, laptops, virtual servers and/or Virtual desktops.
One of the traditional issues with running ever more Virtual Machines on server platforms is the fast increase of CPU power (ie Moore's Law) versus the slower increase in available memory on these platforms. Where CPU utilization in many cases remains relatively low, memory boundaries are reached early on, especially in the light of more demanding Operating Systems.
DinamiQs solves this memory issue through its Virtual Memory Extender (VME), an advanced technology that enhances the Windows memory manager in Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 servers by basically extending the memory of these servers transparantly onto the local or central disk subsystem. Use of the technology also leverages the speed of intelligent storage subsystems by offloading applications to that subsystem in a sequentially organised page file, allowing for fast retrieval of applications when needed.
