Gaithersburg, MD (Vocus) September 3, 2008
Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that PerfectDisk® 2008 Server contains support for Microsoft's Hyper-V™. Hyper-V, which provides server virtualization and consolidation, is part of Windows Server® 2008. PerfectDisk 2008 Server achieved Microsoft's Windows Server 2008 certification earlier this year. Microsoft® certification ensures that third-party software applications operating on Windows Server 2008 meet specific technical requirements.
Server virtualization, also known as hardware virtualization, can provide substantial economic benefits to organizations by enabling multiple operating systems to run on a single physical machine as virtual machines. With Windows Server 2008, everything needed to support server virtualization is available as an integral feature of the operating system as Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V.
PerfectDisk 2008 helps leverage virtual environments by maximizing performance across the virtual environment. Its exclusive Space Restoration Technology™ provides single-pass free space consolidation in addition to PerfectDisk's patented SMARTPlacement™ optimization strategy to provide optimal performance in virtual environments.
