One Tool Benefitting All Applications

It's Very Rare to Find a Tool That Benefits All Applications -- Fragmentation Prevention Is One

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) -  If you think about it, one element that benefits everything is not easy to find. A factor that benefits all life forms in nature, for example, would be water. In mechanics, it might be lubricating oil. In building, it might be a measuring tape. It takes a bit of looking, though, to boil things down enough to be that basic.

In the field of computers, the process becomes even more difficult, simply because there is so much specialized activity. Databases, graphics programs, spreadsheets -- each has their own particular requirement relating to what will help them perform better. Of course there are the obvious ones such as power, but beyond that, what one tool could benefit all applications being run?

One basic barrier to performance across an entire system is file fragmentation. If not properly addressed, fragmentation fractures every file and free space into pieces, causing extra I/O traffic for every file accessed. Not only is performance -- and therefore company productivity -- heavily affected, but so is hardware reliability; the toll taken on hard drives can mean shortening drive life by 50 percent or more.

The key word in the address of fragmentation, especially today, is "properly." There are certainly improper ways to address fragmentation, such as with scheduled defragmentation. Because so many systems and applications must remain up and running 24X7, there is little time for such scheduling. And in between the defrag runs that can be scheduled, fragmentation continues to be a serious problem.

The proper way to address today's fragmentation is to prevent it before it even happens.

Utilizing a new revolutionary technology called IntelliWrite fragmentation prevention, Diskeeper® 2010 intelligently writes files to the disk to prevent up to 85 percent of fragmentation from occurring. Coupled with superior defragmentation technology, Diskeeper 2010 delivers a complete performance solution for every Windows system at every site, and goes far beyond what defragmentation alone can achieve. Significant savings are also achieved by reducing energy consumption and cooling -- even more than is done with conventional defragmentation.

If there is one tool that benefits all applications -- it is certainly Diskeeper 2010.
