Share Article

Diskeeper Corporation is proud to announce that its defragmentation software Diskeeper® 2008 was one of the first three applications, out of 175 applications currently certified for Windows Server 2008, to earn the Hyper-V designation. Diskeeper also recently started a partnership with VMware, the pioneer of virtualisation technology.

Virtualization marks the next evolution in data storage technology. Consolidation makes cost-effective sense by reducing management overhead and creating more efficient hardware utilization. But it does have a weak link: virtual disks are uniquely susceptible to fragmentation and its capsizing effects.

Because of the inter-communication between virtual disks and the host systems, server virtualization actually compounds fragmentation. This accelerated build-up leads to severe problems such as freezes, hangs, crashes and even system failures.

Defragmentation of VMware and Hyper-V hosted Windows operating systems ensures optimized I/O traffic is generated by every virtual machine increasing performance and reliability for the entire infrastructure.

"After independent testing, we found that Diskeeper's automatic defragmenter not only exploits Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V capabilities but also is designed to meet mission-critical expectations in a virtualized environment," said Eric Jewett, Windows Server Marketing group product manager at Microsoft.

Diskeeper's revolutionary technology, InvisiTasking™, transparently fixes fragmentation as it occurs, whenever idle resources are available, thus maintaining peak system performance and eliminating computer slow downs. Diskeeper handles crippling levels of file fragmentation, solving millions of fragments across multiple virtual machines, even on systems with as little as 1% free space available.
