The Key to Total System Stability

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2008) - If there is a common primary goal amongst 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.

Today, fragmentation must be addressed automatically, so that maximum performance and reliability are always maintained without the need for scheduling and maintenance time windows. These are the crucial factors provided by Diskeeper Corporation with InvisiTasking® technology.

"I've had servers crash and desktops slow to a crawl due to heavy fragmentation," said Brad Parker, Desktop Support Specialist with Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in San Francisco, California. "Since I implemented Diskeeper®, the network from servers down to the desktops has never been so stable."

"I've also noticed the benefit of few system resources taken up due to the InvisiTasking," Parker added.

Diskeeper Corporation's proprietary InvisiTasking technology allows Diskeeper to defrag whenever otherwise-idle resources are available. Files are constantly defragmented, there is never negative performance hits because of defrag runs, and scheduling is never required. Your systems are always at their top speed -- and their most energy-efficient.

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.

"I've been using Diskeeper since Windows NT 4 and I consider it a requirement," Parker concluded. "For those who don't defrag, they are only living on the edge of disaster."
