There is a more important factor than system reliability when operating a data center? Probably not. Finally, there is no data center, but instead an expensive failure without this aspect. System reliability is so essential that entire industries have arisen to ensure it. RAID systems are a safe solution to the problem of hard disk failures. One disk fails, data is stored as one or more others. A failover system is used for mission-critical systems. This starts another system server or network outage and is then ready for use. However, despite all modern backup and failure solutions, it is in the nature of Windows file systems, to fragment.
This process is not counteracted, can cause problems for users, networks and all companies and are in fact already doing it. Fragmentation is a calculated, each Windows operating system its own weakness. It was deliberately created, to Disk space to use more efficiently. The downside is that fragmented files on the entire hard disk are distributed. Each disk drive used anywhere for any purpose, including RAID, mirror systems, or backup, is exposed to the resulting harmful effects. In the computer science field, it is no news that fragmentation affects performance. Perhaps less well known, however, is the impact of fragmentation on system reliability.
From startup to shut down, a fragmented hard drive can cause problems with almost every Windows activity at the system level. One main reason is that the Windows operating system continually accesses the hard disk-based swap file. Thus, reliable functioning of the hard drive is essential for reliable system operation. The paging file fragmentation problems can cause that is no longer enough virtual memory available, and also data loss can have. In addition, a highly fragmented master can File table (NTFS, the Windows file system, used file allocation table, also file allocation table called) further slow the already long startup process of a Windows based computer.
