The (PerfectDisk) differentiators are important to us – optimization of physical server drives, virtual awareness to ensure there are no bottlenecks between guest VMs, and automatic defragmentation and compaction of Exchange data stores.
Gaithersburg, MD (Vocus) August 17, 2010
Raxco Software, the pioneer in disk defragmentation software for virtual environments, announced today that the Royal River Casino and Hotel has chosen several PerfectDisk® components to defragment its physical servers, vSphere environment and Exchange server. The Royal River Casino and Hotel, located in Flandreau, SD, with over 250 Windows® users and over 40 servers, serves over 70,000 guests annually.
Prior to using PerfectDisk, the Royal River Casino and Hotel spent 1 to 4 hours manually defragmenting each server. Exchange servers were only defragmented “after hours” to avoid disruption to email users. The result was that all servers were defragmented only irregularly, resulting in non-optimal server performance. With PerfectDisk 11 Server, the PerfectDisk 11 vSphere Bundle, and PerfectDisk 11 Exchange, defragmentation across all physical and virtual servers is now performed automatically.
“With the PerfectDisk set of products, defragmentation across all our servers – physical and vSphere - has been put on autopilot so we’re assured it gets done,” said Mark Kenyon, IT director at Royal River Casino and Hotel. “The differentiators are important to us – optimization of physical server drives, virtual awareness to ensure there are no bottlenecks between guest VMs, and automatic defragmentation and compaction of Exchange data stores.”
“We’re pleased to have the Royal River Casino and Hotel as a PerfectDisk user,” said Joe Abusamra, vice president of operations at Raxco Software. “With businesses of all sizes now moving to virtual environments, we’re happy to be able to provide a set of solutions for all SMB servers, including vSphere and Exchange, to help these businesses operate more efficiently.”
