Preventing Fragmentation: The Answer to System Stability

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - If there is a common primary goal among all system administrators, it is probably "to keep the system up and running." Such a goal has many ramifications, including keeping hardware and software debugged, making sure all upgrades and updates are in place and keeping users functioning and happy. Because technology is such an integral part of companies today, a stable system greatly contributes to a secure, prospering enterprise. It is therefore of benefit to IT personnel everywhere to fully address blocks to that stability.

Such issues -- things that normally make system administrators flinch at their very mention -- include slowing of access, disk errors, network performance problems, lengthened or aborted backups, and similar factors. These issues all have one common cause, however.

That cause would be file fragmentation which is the crippling malady that affects performance and reliability on all systems. Because hard drives have to work so much harder to access fragmented files, speed and access are greatly reduced and hardware life is shortened by as much as 50 percent. Scheduled defrag is no longer adequate in today's frantic environments. In between scheduled runs, fragmentation builds up to compound and impact overall system stability.

When fragmentation is completely addressed, as it is with Diskeeper® performance software, fragmentation's impact is virtually reduced to nothing.

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.

Hard drive life can be extended by 1 to 3 years, meaning costly refreshes and upgrades can be postponed. Help desk calls are cut because users aren't complaining; IT time can be spent on higher priorities.

Best of all, your systems are always at their top speed -- and their best stability.
