This paper presents the results of a Diskeeper Corporation study that examines the effects of disk fragmentation on virus scan time to verify and measure the magnitude of virus scanning speed improvement.
Tight IT budgets demand that desktop and laptop PCs remain in service well beyond their prime. But as these systems age, performance degrades. The culprit most often is file fragmentation. Download this paper to find out how Diskeeper can help your systems perform longer.
This document will explain the behavior and benefit of implementing Diskeeper defragmentation software with intricate modern hardware technologies such as RAID, NAS and SANs. SANs, NAS devices, corporate servers, and even high end workstations and multimedia-centric desktops characteristically implement multiple physical disk drives in some form of fault tolerant disk striping (RAID).
With continued expansion of organizational storage allocation requirements, the time required for file-based data backup also continues to increase yet the time allotted for this data backup remains constant, exposing a critical issue. Though backup software vendors continue making advancements in technology to speed up the process, disk fragmentation will continue to remain an unresolved issue that must be addressed on the file system level to solve this bottleneck.
In today's environment of bigger disks storing not only larger files but more files than ever before, the effects of fragmentation worsen markedly with each day's use. To keep up with same-day performance degradation, disks must be defragmented in real-time.
Sooner or later, disasters happen to every computer user. They delete important files, on purpose or accidentally. Or they update a document and save it, overwriting the original version. Download this paper to learn how to protect against accidental file erasure.
The size of today’s hard drives boggles the mind. Coupled with this surge in disk capacity is an explosion in file sizes. And multi-MB PowerPoints, MP3s and PDFs litter the hard drive. The problem is that drive I/O speed has not kept up the pace. As a result, it has developed into a serious bottleneck in system performance.
While there is little dispute among IT professionals regarding the impact of disk fragmentation on system performance, no independent guidelines exist to recommend the frequency of defragmentation across an infrastructure. This white paper will outline the results of testing, draw conclusions, and make recommendations regarding managing fragmentation across your infrastructure.

Virtualization does have its dangers, as it incurs greater stress on physical resources. While under utilization of CPU may be a driving factor to virtualize servers, other hardware resources may become overtaxed. Given that a host system has limited ability (depends on application) to page memory used by the guest systems, the most recognized bottleneck to address is physical memory (RAM). Options to programmatically alleviate memory bottlenecks incur performance issues when the disk is re-introduced. Another major component and perhaps less acknowledged is the disk subsystem. In many cases, depending the purpose and application of the guest/virtual systems, the disk bottleneck will be the most significant barrier to performance.
