The new Diskeeper® 15 Server expands its patented fragmentation prevention technology beyond Windows® physical servers with local storage and direct-attached storage (DAS) to now include storage area networks (SAN), representing the industry’s first real-time fragmentation solution for SAN storage. Diskeeper Server doesn’t "defrag" SAN systems or compete with RAID controllers for block management, but rather prevents fragmentation from occurring at the logical disk software layer in the Windows file system to keep physical servers and SAN storage running like new. Organizations who have virtualized should consider V-locity®.
Read the blog: Is Fragmentation Robbing SAN Performance?
"As Condusiv demonstrates, the level of fragmentation of the logical disk inflates the IOPS requirement for any given workload with a surplus of small, fractured I/O. While part of the performance problem can be hidden behind high performance flash, a high fragmented environment wastes much of the investment in flash." – George Crump, Sr Analyst, Storage Switzerland (read the full article)
Proactive and Efficient Server Performance Optimization
Where typical defragmentation utilities consume resources to operate and deal with fragmentation only after the performance penalty has already been incurred, Diskeeper 15 is the only proactive solution that solves the problem in real-time while running transparently in the background. Without Diskeeper 15, files are scattered around a volume instead of written in one place. Diskeeper’s IntelliWrite optimizes writes and subsequent reads by writing data sequentially, reducing seek time and the number of I/Os required to write a file or access it.
Keep your Windows servers and storage running like new with Diskeeper 15 Server:
- Proactively eliminates performance-robbing fragmentation
- Delivers accelerated I/O performance for Windows servers with local, direct-attached storage (DAS) or storage area network (SAN) environments
- Improves business productivity by ensuring applications run at peak performance
- Easily deploys across the network via a central management console
- Operates with true "Set It and Forget It®" functionality
- Extends the life of Windows servers and associated storage
- Continuous optimization without hampering system resources by using only available, idle resources
