activePDF Documents Big Performance Improvements for Its Servers With Raxco Software's PerfectDisk

Intelligent Disk Defragmentation Provides Key Benefits to Leading PDF Tool Provider

GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwire - August 14, 2007) - Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that activePDF® has selected PerfectDisk® to provide automated disk defragmentation of its servers to improve their performance. activePDF, which provides automated document management solutions, has over 13,000 customers and over 40,000 installed licenses worldwide.

activePDF has realized a significant return on investment with its purchase of PerfectDisk, as previously slow-performing and sluggish servers are now performing like new, with over 30% performance improvements. In particular, activePDF's Exchange and SQL servers are now much more responsive, which is critical as the company strives to keep its employees as productive as possible. "In particular, PerfectDisk's Space Restoration Technology™, which provides total free space consolidation, and its SMARTPlacement™ optimization of the drives, set the product apart from the competition," said Tory Gilbert, IT Manager at activePDF. "We looked at other defragmenters, but only PerfectDisk provided the thorough defragmentation we needed."

"activePDF is a great example of a small company that can achieve enormous performance and productivity gains easily and inexpensively from PerfectDisk," said Joe Abusamra, vice president of operations at Raxco Software. "We're happy to have them join the fast-growing list of small companies around the world benefiting from PerfectDisk."
