Defrag Helps Busy System Administrators Start the New Year Right

Disk defrag software streamlines overall network performance.

Disk fragmentation is a fundamental reason system and network components run poorly and problems arise when expanding a network

Disk fragmentation can masquerade as hundreds of small problems leading system administrators feeling fragmented themselves. However, the release of Diskeeper® 2008 Administrator offers an alternative to duct tape fixes on a machine by machine basis with whole network defrag via push installation and management of Diskeeper 2008 Professional, Pro Premier, Server or enterprise server with policy-based management.

Designed from the ground up to deliver a full value comprehensive network solution, the software allows interactive control from a remote machine and can display real-time details about Automatic Defragmentation, the health of your volumes, the idle resources that the program uses to accelerate volume performance, and other useful defragmentation information.

"Disk fragmentation is a fundamental reason system and network components run poorly and problems arise when expanding a network," says Dr. Mark Lurie, owner of Quality Assurance Lab, a hardware and software testing lab that specializes in network component compatibility and performance. "You cannot truly exploit cutting edge hardware and fully optimized component interaction without aggressive, automatic disk defragmentation."

Automatic or continuous defragmentation operates in the background, "on the fly," handling fragmentation almost as quickly as it happens. A recent CNET reviewer probably summed up the comparison of manual (or scheduled) defragmentation to automatic defrag best by saying, "manually defragmentation becomes as necessary as a dial-up modem."

Installing automatic disk defrag software allows system administrators to act less reactively to daily fires that can be caused by fragmentation, and once again manage the network as a network. At this level of operation, overall network performance is monitored and managed with long-term, cost-effective solutions that create adequate expansion within budget.

For systems administrators who desire a single-point analysis of systems requiring defragmentation attention, Diskeeper offers a free, stand-alone utility that detects and reports fragmentation-related performance loss on networked systems. The new Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks™ (DPAN), included with the 2008 Administrator software, provides real-time performance updates with high-level visual graphs and detailed fragmentation data on-demand or via email automatically.

Diskeeper 2008 sets an entirely new standard in performance and reliability, eliminating the need for scheduling or administrator supervision. Just install and the disk defrag software automatically takes care of the rest -- with no intrusion on system resources, no slows, no drains. It is the perfect solution for keeping every system on your network operating in peak condition 24/7.
