New Diskeeper Tech Report Exposes Fragmentation Myths in Modern Storage Environments

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - Diskeeper Corporation, innovators in performance and reliability technologies®, today announced the release of a new white paper detailing how preventing fragmentation is vital for modern storage technologies.

The paper details that no matter what the underlying storage subsystems are, they are separate from the local disk file system where fragmentation is still very much an issue, causing the operating system to generate and pass along, far more I/Os than are necessary. No matter how one stores data, solving file fragmentation is as essential for peak system performance and reliability as it ever was.

Due to the significant complexity and extent of software and hardware used in modern storage environments, there are many misconceptions regarding the continuing need for a solution for fragmentation. Today's storage technologies are stretched to their performance limit with increased demands for data storage, bandwidth and faster disk I/O, so maintaining a stable machine at peak performance is essential and the fact remains that the disk still is the weak link.

The whitepaper outlines the fact that new storage technologies have definitely improved storage performance, flexibility and manageability, but they do not solve issues generated at the file system level, such as file fragmentation. The need to optimize virtual disks, SAN, RAID, NAS, HHD and SSD devices continues today, just as it has in the past.

As storage solutions have evolved, so have solutions to address fragmentation. New Diskeeper® 2010 with IntelliWrite™ is only way to prevent fragmentation before it happens. It is the ultimate solution to maximize the performance and reliability of modern storage solutions.
