Raxco Software announced that PerfectDisk 2008 Server contains support for Microsoft’s Hyper-V. Hyper-V, which provides server virtualization and consolidation, is part of Windows Server 2008. PerfectDisk 2008 Server achieved Microsoft’s Windows Server 2008 certification earlier this year. Microsoft certification ensures that third-party software applications operating on Windows Server 2008 meet specific technical requirements.
Server virtualization, also known as hardware virtualization, can provide substantial economic benefits to organizations by enabling multiple operating systems to run on a single physical machine as virtual machines. With Windows Server 2008, everything needed to support server virtualization is available as an integral feature of the operating system as Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V.
PerfectDisk 2008 helps leverage virtual environments by maximizing performance across the virtual environment. Its exclusive Space Restoration Technology provides single-pass free space consolidation in addition to PerfectDisk’s patented SMARTPlacement optimization strategy to provide optimal performance in virtual environments.
PerfectDisk 2008’s Hyper-V support reinforces PerfectDisk’s support for virtualization environments. Together with PerfectDisk 2008 for VMware and the PerfectDisk 2008 for VMware ESX Bundle, the PerfectDisk 2008 family of products provides the most comprehensive defragmentation solutions for today’s virtual environments
“Fragmentation in Hyper-V environments poses significant performance obstacles to organizations implementing this new technology,” said Greg Hayes, manager of technical operations at Raxco Software. “As usual, PerfectDisk is at the forefront of providing robust yet easy-to-use solutions for this challenge with complete defragmentation and free space consolidation that is critical to virtual machines.”
