Gaithersburg, MD (Vocus) August 20, 2008
Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that a record number of businesses are choosing PerfectDisk® 2008 over competitive offerings due to its multiple options for defragmenting disk drives and files, and for its better value. The world's largest enterprises, small businesses and consumers do not wish to be forced into a vendor's particular defrag methodology, such as "automatic" defragmentation that is always running in the background and consuming resources and computer overhead.
While the concept of a defragmentation utility that does not consume any resources sounds intriguing, real-world testing confirms that resources are consumed with so-called "automatic defragging." Any monitoring system in the IT world uses resources to do its job. A defrag utility that monitors users' systems and defrags at certain times is sufficient for some environments, which is why PerfectDisk 2008 includes StealthPatrol™ automatic background processing and Screen Saver defrag. But many organizations will not allow applications that are always running to be placed on their systems, particularly on very busy, mission-critical servers. There is no "idle" time on these systems. For these environments, PerfectDisk 2008 provides exclusive AutoPilot Scheduling™, which allows users to defragment their drives at specific times, and even control CPU and I/O usage through threshold settings. And with PerfectDisk's patented SMARTPlacement™ optimization strategy and exclusive Space Restoration Technology™, PerfectDisk reduces the rate of fragmentation, which a multi-pass defragmenter is unable to do. This more sophisticated defrag technology, along with simpler and more affordable pricing, is leading the market surge to PerfectDisk 2008.
Winner of numerous awards, including Windows IT Pro Editors' Choice award, Windows IT Pro Readers' Choice award, Redmond Magazine's Best of the Best, PC Magazine's Editor's Choice, and top-rated 5 stars from CNET editors and About.com, Raxco's PerfectDisk answers the unique needs of users in the enterprise, SMB and home office environments.
