Server Performance with PerfectDisk

Raxco Software, the pioneer in disk defragmentation software for virtual environments, announced today that Infrasys has chosen the PerfectDisk vSphere Bundle and PerfectDisk Server to improve server virtualization performance of its clients' IT environments. With offices in England and Northern Ireland, Infrasys acts as an IT and business consultant to some of the United Kingdom's largest companies, with responsibility for maintaining and enhancing companies' infrastructures and virtualization environments.

Infrasys manages over 1,000 physical servers and hundreds of virtual machines for its customers, as well as its own cloud offering. Prior to selecting the PerfectDisk solutions, Infrasys used the Windows built-in defragmentation tool, which proved to have severe limitations. With PerfectDisk, fragmentation has been virtually eliminated, disk latency has been significantly reduced and overall server and virtualization performance has improved considerably. Infrasys also anticipates the reduced performance degradation will likely lead to less need for replacement hardware, resulting in additional savings.

"Using PerfectDisk has allowed us to virtually eliminate fragmentation on our physical and virtual servers," said Alex Livingstone, project manager at Infrasys. "This helps maintain the performance desired when commissioning servers and has also removed fragmentation as a potential issue for troubleshooting storage or server performance issues. PerfectDisk's tight integration with VMware vSphere gives us the confidence that our applications, which are run by our staff of IT engineers, will not be negatively impacted."

"We're happy Infrasys has chosen PerfectDisk to meet the challenges of performance optimization for its clients," said Joe Abusamra, vice president of operations at Raxco Software. "As service providers such as Infrasys implement virtualization and cloud computing solutions, more and more of them are turning to PerfectDisk to ensure they are maximizing the benefits of these technologies."
