Request ROI Analysis
For an IT department, division or organization, ROI is probably the most significant
index of effectiveness, both for personnel and equipment. When it comes to computing,
ROI must measure hardware and software—but most importantly, how they are utilized
together to increase productivity and the bottom line.
A serious detriment to ROI of computing systems can be issues with I/O bottlenecks caused by fragmentation
— the splitting of files into pieces (fragments) across a drive. Fragmentation drastically
slows all processes, anywhere on a network. Fragmentation affects both physical
and virtual drives.
This prime barrier to system performance has a substantial ROI impact on hardware,
process speed and performance, user productivity and IT hours and overtime.
ROI is impacted in terms of both time and money. From a business standpoint, however,
time is always measured in money; the faster a task is performed, the more profitable
it is for the company. From the standpoint of hardware, the longer it lasts, but
better and more sound the investment.

The Substantial ROI from Full-System Optimization
Because of its completely transparent and non-obtrusive operation,
software begins positively impacting ROI right from the beginning. Because of Diskeeper’s
InvisiTasking® technology, there is zero negative performance impact while Diskeeper
operates, which means IT staff can be fully utilized elsewhere. IT hours are drastically
cut, both from having to tackle fragmentation-related tasks and performance issues
Because of performance being maximized, hardware life is extended and reliability
is greatly increased. Energy savings also occur as processing time is reduced.
The most significant ROI impact from Diskeeper, however, is felt at the level of
system performance; it is a continuous benefit. Since processes complete more rapidly,
more work can be performed in less time. User productivity is greatly increased
as well. Overall there is a very positive effect on the corporate bottom line.
In that many sites are implementing virtualization technology today, it is equally
important to realize comparable ROI benefits from virtual platforms. The solution
for virtual drive fragmentation is
V-locity® 3 virtual platform disk optimizer.
With V-locity, unnecessary I/Os are eliminated, resulting in faster VM and host
I/O throughput, and the ability to add VMs without a resulting drop in performance.
The considerable investment made in virtualization technology is thus fully realized.
Employing both of these solutions throughout an entire enterprise means an appreciable
ROI for a company’s total IT budget.
"Diskeeper indeed provided the ROI we expected. We are very satisfied."
- Marc-Andre Cabana, Autodesk
"I do not have time for a ‘high maintenance’ piece of software that eats up large
chunks of my time on a daily basis. Diskeeper works; it tells me that my disks are
no longer fragmented, and it causes me no new headaches or concerns. That is the
best ROI that I have going for me."
- Dave Galbo, AL Hansen Manufacturing
"Our ROI has been in productivity savings. The IT staff does not have to run utility
and maintenance programs to keep the servers optimized and running smoothly as when
new. This saves us at least 20 IT hours per month. Likewise, because of the continuous
optimization of the user programs on the servers, our users have experienced a 99.97%
uptime over the past 12 months."
- Mark A. Gainer, Banker Steel Company
