Diskeeper 2008 With InvisTasking Technology » read source
Most IT professionals know the impact of disk defragmentation on a system and use some type of defragmenter software, but current operating systems and larger application sizes, along with the proliferation of multimedia files used in business and the need for larger storage systems for archiving, require advanced defrag technology that defragments in real-time. Real-time defrag software, like Diskeeper 2008 that uses InvisTasking,TM delivers tangible financial benefits because it eliminates performance degradation that occurs with fragmentation build up inherent in manual or scheduled defrag.
Diskeeper offers four core points that will help persuade upper management that investing in next generation disk defragmenter software produces tangible benefits. Disk defragmentation is not just a technical issue it is a core business issue, an enormous robber of productivity. The math is simple: 120 employees losing just 4 minutes per day is an aggregate productivity loss of 2,080 hours, the exact equivalent of one full-time employee. InvisiTasking's true transparent, background processing technology allows Diskeeper 2008 to defragment your computer in real-time, eliminating the need for cumbersome maintenance operations. You’ll never need to log in to your Windows Home Server to manage fragmentation again.
Advanced background processing technology, called InvisiTasking operates transparently, handling fragmentation as it occurs, keeping system speed and reliability at a constant maximum. Fragmentation taxes hard drives by increasing the disk head movement when accessing fragmented files, shortening the life of the hard drive. Diskeeper 2008 elevates system performance, debugging fragmentation-based problems as they occur, without ever compromising vital system resources, even when the whole family is connected to the computer.
Keeping files defragmented in real time reduces the amount of disk head movement and increases hardware longevity. Some companies that use disk defragmenter software have kept their systems in service up to a full year longer than originally planned stretching their IT budgets and freeing up systems administrators' time. Fragmentation of files make backups more difficult and increases backup time. Delays in the backup process can mean that some files don't get backed up during the scheduled backup window leaving them vulnerable to loss. File fragmentation also jeopardizes the integrity of the files, making them more susceptible to corruption.
Next generation real time defragmentation management provides complete centralized management of defrag operations for all machines on a network, including installation, configuration, monitoring, updating, email reports and alerts and more. This relieves network managers of reactive maintenance and actually allows them to "manage" the network. Real-time defragmentation software keeps drives free of fragmentation so when backup occurs, transfer rates are at an optimum level and because fragmentation occurs on the fly, files are less vulnerable to corruption.
Although CIOs may be aware of the problems caused by fragmented hard drives and files, this awareness tends not to receive the attention it may well deserve when it comes time to prioritize funds for purchasing future systems. However, business value is derived from having machines up and running to support business units, and fragmented files can be a factor in hardware upgrades as well as degraded server, desktop/laptop, and application performance. The problem of degraded system performance and the resulting business unit impacts can be addressed with file defragmentation software.
