PerfectDisk® 14 Server speeds up physical server processing times and dramatically reduces backup times by reducing the number of unnecessary SCSI commands. Reducing SCSI commands improves I/O throughput and reduces I/O latency bottlenecks.
Thin Provisioned Drive Auto-Detection
PerfectDisk automatically detects thin-provisioned drives in both physical and virtual environments. For drives that are auto-detected as thin-provisioned, PerfectDisk automatically will configure itself so that defrag operations performed on the drive are less likely to fully provision the drive.
Fragmentation Prevention with OptiWrite™
PerfectDisk's OptiWrite™ technology prevents most fragmentation on your drive before it occurs, which prevents your system from slowing down. OptiWrite™ detects when Windows is going to fragment files and intelligently redirects I/O to stop the fragmentation from occurring. System performance is maintained and the need to utilize CPU and Disk I/O resources to defragment files is greatly reduced. Because less defragmentation is needed, there is a direct benefit in the form of energy saved in both CPU usage and in the reading and writing to a disk. It saves users both in energy costs and in the time required to defragment a file system.
Automating Defragmentation - Flexible Unattended Operation
In addition to supporting a robust way to schedule PerfectDisk to run at a specific day/time, including Max Duration, PerfectDisk’s exclusive StealthPatrol™ tab is used to set automatic fragmentation prevention and optimize your system when it isn't busy. Auto-optimization affords you the flexibility to optimize your system when it is idle. Auto-optimization provides the flexibility to not run during certain periods of the day or when a user-defined application is running. No other defrag or optimization utility proves this level of flexibility.
Intelligent Disk Optimization
For the limited fragmentation that can still occur, PerfectDisk's patented SMARTPlacement optimization strategy optimizes disk drives according to your unique usage patterns. SMARTPlacement results in the most consolidated free space available, the elimination of most fragmentation before it occurs, and a reduced rate of fragmentation.
SSD Optimize is an optimization method for SSDs that focuses on free space consolidation without defragmentation of files. Solid State Drives are not affected by file fragmentation like traditional electromechanical disk drives. As such, it will leave files in a fragmented state while consolidating free space into large pieces.
Total disk defragmentation and free space consolidation
PerfectDisk offers the most comprehensive solution for defragmentation by optimizing virtually every file on the system, including the Master File Table (MFT), NTFS metadata files, paging files, directories, and datafiles, and consolidating free space. Multiple defrag methods allow for flexibility in performing file and free space optimization. The Prep for Shrink method (not available in the evaluation version of PerfectDisk) assists in P2V conversions or shrinking disks. Selected Files Defrag allowins defragmenting single files rather than defragmenting the entire drive.
Standard Multi-Terabyte Drive Support
PerfectDisk defragments the very largest disk drives that are prevalent in today's operating environments - drives that range to several terabytes. Support for RAID and Volume Sets enables powerful defragmentation for the largest and most complex environments with large storage arrays and volumes. Because of this design, PerfectDisk not only defragments these large drives, but it does so at up to twice as fast as other defragmenters, consolidates the drives' free space, and uses 80% fewer resources - at no extra cost.
CPU and I/O - Control Resource Throttling
PerfectDisk provides resource throttling capabilities to manage resource usage as efficiently as possible. I/O throttling allows PerfectDisk to run on very busy disks without imposing additional load on the disk. CPU throttling allows you to raise or lower the CPU priority at which it runs. PerfectDisk uses very minimal CPU resources in its standard processing.
Centralized Management and Control
Enterprise management of the PerfectDisk disk defragmentation software is provided by the free PerfectDisk Enterprise Console. The Console can be used to deploy and configure PerfectDisk throughout your enterprise.
