Fragmentation: Stealing Those Precious IT Resources

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2009) - In today's economy, saving every dollar possible is vital. In company expenditures, this manifests as finding the best deals on equipment, supplies and raw materials. For human resources, it plays out in utilizing the least number of personnel to accomplish the most amount of work. And in IT, it translates to the most intelligent deployment of system resources, as well as allocation of IT personnel hours to the most important and vital projects.

It's not just the economic situation impacting IT these days -- it is also the fact of systems having to remain up and running as much as possible. Having to take a system off line to utilize resources for maintenance not only directly impedes production, but also robs valuable IT hours from projects that will actually help the company make money.

File fragmentation is the number one culprit for stealing resources in this regard. Traditional methods have dictated scheduling defrags, something that's becoming harder and harder to do with dedicated systems. Because available times to schedule defrag have become so rare, IT personnel must work that much harder to get defrag done, even having to resort to manual defrags for which they must be present. And because defrag is performed less often, fragmentation continues to build and to impact system performance and reliability.

Into the teeth of this major problem of fragmentation, for many enterprises, flies Diskeeper® software with InvisiTasking® technology.

InvisiTasking allows Diskeeper to defragment whenever otherwise-idle resources are available -- meaning that drives are constantly kept defragmented and running at maximum performance. Scheduling is never required, and there is never a negative performance hit from defragmentation.
