Automatic Defragmentation: Increase Production With Fewer Resources

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - With today's economy being what it is, it becomes a mandate all across an enterprise to "make due with what you've got." But in fact that's just the bare minimum -- far more desirable would be to obtain even more production with fewer resources. Reorganize workflow so that fewer personnel can actually get more done. Fix up that older machinery so that it works twice as hard. Balance the load on a network so that new computer system purchases can be put off as long as possible.

In theory, defragmentation should allow an enterprise to pursue this path. When files are defragmented, hardware doesn't have to strain under the excessive I/Os needed to retrieve files and hard drive life is lengthened. Faster access allows users to get more work done in less time. It should be, as they say, a "no-brainer."

Unfortunately, however, some sites have implemented scheduled defragmentation over the years and are now wondering why they're still encountering fragmentation-related issues. The answer is simple: scheduled defragmentation can no longer keep up with the fantastic rates of fragmentation occurring in today's computer environments. Due to the necessity of constant uptime for many servers, scheduling is increasingly harder to do. In between scheduled runs (when they can be scheduled) fragmentation continues to build and to impact the system.

Diskeeper Corporation's proprietary InvisiTasking® technology allows defragmentation to occur invisibly, in the background, utilizing resources that would be otherwise idle. Performance and reliability are constantly maximized. No scheduling is ever required and there is never a negative performance hit from defrag. Diskeeper also contains robust technology to specially address the severe fragmentation issues of terabyte drives.
