I have a RAID server running Windows Server 2003 and routinely run defrag.exe on it. I usually have it set to run as a scheduled task in the middle of the night with the options set to quit if it runs longer than 2 hours andto only run if the system is idle.
There are other products that may have more features but the built-in version works and you can't beat the price.

The built in one is just fine and as reliable as it gets. If you schedule though I wouldn't do it at the same time as a backup.

If you want a bit more performance and features try the trial of Diskeeper.
