Obtaining Faster File Access
Developed by Condusiv Technologies, Intelligent File Access Acceleration Sequencing
Technology, or I-FAAST, is
an innovative technology that analyzes each individual drive’s performance data,
and makes intelligent decisions about file placement on that drive resulting in
faster file access.
These gains are obtained by, first, the running of specially engineered benchmarks
on disk volumes in order to obtain data about their performance characteristics.
Once this data is learned, commonly used files are placed on the disk by I-FAAST
in a way calculated to maximize speed of access. In addition to those files specified
by I-FAAST, users may also specify specific files that should be so optimized.
File access speed is improved by an average of 10 to 20 percent, and in some cases
can be as high as 80 percent.
Over time, the drive is transparently and automatically monitored for the maintenance
of performance benefits—with no impact on system resources being used. Diskeeper’s
proprietary InvisiTasking technology is utilized for completely transparent operation.
New developments in I-FAAST have resulted in added functionality for the intelligent
and automatic assignment of files to the optimum type of media—a physical hard drive
or a solid state drive. This assignment is based on usage frequency of files and
the availability of media.
I-FAAST file optimization is a unique technology which allows for faster access to commonly used files,
thereby allowing users to get more done in shorter times with their computers.

“We have rolled out the I-FAAST defragmentation on all the drives on the servers,
and are extremely pleased with the improvements. On average we are seeing 10-22%
improvements in disk access from the I-FAAST alone, and defragmentation is taking
much less time once the initial defrag.”
