Hyper-V users who are looking to standardize their virtual and non-virtual environments just got a little help. (formerly Vnunet) is reporting that European firm Diskeeper has just launched a new platform designed to optimize storage for environments running Hyper-V with Windows Server 2008.

The product, dubbed V-locity, was created to boost performance by getting rid of fragmentation in virtual environments, and is currently exclusive to Hyper-V. Microsoft director of virtualization products Dai Vu told the following:

“Disk defragmentation can be worse in virtualized environments because physical drives serve multiple operating systems and applications. Partners such as Diskeeper offer a familiar approach to optimizing I/O performance, and broaden the portfolio of products that customers need as they deploy Microsoft virtualization solutions in the enterprise.”

The product is available as a 30-day free trial, and more information can be found via the Diskeeper website here.
