Windows Fragmentation

Four-day backup using DIS keepers performance software halved LONDON, 30 May 2011 – David Anderson, network manager of Cramlington learning village school, reported as Diskeeper(R) dramatically halved the backup time of the school’s own server. “The school, when the last three OFSTED inspections as outstanding” was evaluated, had the problem that the execution four days each lasted from backups. Symantec BackupExec V12 5, our main backup application, took considerable time because of file fragmentation on the backup. Microsoft Windows 2003 and other free defragmentation tools offered for our large terabyte drives”no adequate level of defragmentation, commented David Anderson. He went on to say: we have tested many products and found the best results with Diskeeper… Diskeeper is not only easy to use, but also reduces the time for our backups in half… The data transfer speed of our backup software has grown from 500 Mbits improved per minute on 1 Gbits per minute. We have installed Diskeeper on MS Windows 2003 servers 10, several SAN drives are each connected to the.

We use an EMC CX3-10 San. Mr. Anderson also noted that there should be no problems with fragmentation according to the support party. According to our contract partners of the support, there should be no problems with fragmentation. Since we have installed Diskeeper, our drive failures have decreased, and we need to replace the no longer so many drives in the SAN as before.

Diskeeper also improved access times.” A recent survey of the existing customers of Diskeeper Corporation Europe showed that over 75% use a SAN solution or plan to use them. The same survey also found that 80% of the participants of the adverse effect of fragmentation on the I/O performance are aware of. Mandeep Birdi, technical presales consultant at Diskeeper Corporation Europe, commented: I think Diskeeper is vital for File server and backup server. Thus from the outset that we prevent more than 85% of the fragmentation, we prevent waiting times for the backup. Our IntelliWrite(R)-Technologie fragmentation prevention also reduced the I/O bottleneck, which has a huge impact on the performance. Thus we reduce not only the backup times and improve also the I/O performance of hard disk within the SAN environment.” About Diskeeper Corporation – Microsoft Gold Certified Partner specialising in system performance and reliability: CIOs, IT managers and system administrators of global Fortune 1000- and Forbes 500 companies rely on the Diskeeper(R) performance software that delivers unprecedented performance and reliability for their business laptops, desktops and servers.
