22 Technical Considerations for Evaluating a Defragmentation Solution for Enterprise Workstations
sponsored by Diskeeper Corporation

Ultimately the purpose of eliminating fragmentation from a computer system is to increase performance. The benefit can range from incremental improvements to resolving situations where fragmentation has built up to such a severe degree that applications and systems cease to function. 

Cleaning up existing fragmentation through defragmentation is an excellent way to improve file read performance for files. However, that process does not natively improve file write performance. Rather than allowing files to fragment when written, the revolutionary IntelliWrite™ technology found exclusively in Diskeeper prevents most fragmentation from occurring in the first place. 

Often overlooked, but just as significant as file fragmentation, is free space fragmentation. Fragmented free space will inevitably increase the likelihood and degree of fragmentation of data and system files and slow write performance. Diskeeper has advanced solutions to consolidate space into a small handful of very large segments in order to maximize the effectiveness of IntelliWrite and file-write performance.
