Data volumes continue to grow. More companies are consolidating and virtualizing their IT infrastructures and far more demand is placed on storage performance. But one aspect that often gets overlooked is the role SAN disk defragmenting plays in improving performance. In particular, companies overlook the performance degradation due to file system fragmentation within a SAN. How are companies addressing this? Some simply ignore the issue, believing that because of the inherently high performance of SANs, defragmenting offers little or no benefit. Find out what's really at stake and what the real issues are. The facts may surprise you!
