Executive Summary

Effective integration of a virtual architecture today has a profound impact on business continuity: Better network efficiency, lower operating costs, and more value from your hardware. However, the underlying shared storage and the nature of virtual resource allocation are sensitive to data storage pitfalls. The problem lies in the fact that the Windows file system overlying the virtual layer still stores data proprietarily. The result is fragmentation in which data is stored in several different places causing bottlenecks when it comes time to access it.

Truly realizing the advantages of a virtual platform requires an optimization solution that intelligently handles fragmentation and is wholly compatible with the environment. Read this white paper to learn more about the absolute best practices for establishing optimization for a modern virtual platform. Understanding the solution means real data speeds and eliminated resource bottlenecks without the need for hands-on maintenance. The benefits go on and on:

  • Prevent file fragmentation before it ever occurs
  • Prevent resource bottlenecks
  • Free up space on your servers for increased virtual machine density
  • Lower costs while increasing speed across the VM infrastructure
  • Take your virtualization solution to the next level
