PerfectDisk vSphere

PerfectDisk® vSphere improves performance on virtualized Windows Servers and is supported on Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 and 2012 R2 guests. PerfectDisk vSphere provides all of the features found in PerfectDisk® Server and includes Virtual Awareness Technology for maximum uptime.

Virtualization Awareness allows file system optimization to take place without the contention for resources that normally takes place with automatic background defragmentation. This ensures that optimizations run dynamically without supervision or intervention, while never negatively impacting performance.

The MEDITECH Event Scheduler must be properly configured to notify PerfectDisk of files approaching the FAL limit so PerfectDisk can exclude these files from defragmentation operations.

Consult with your MEDITECH Technical Account Manager (TAM) or MEDITECH Integrator PRIOR to installing PerfectDisk on any FS or other servers where high FAL limits are of concern to ensure the MEDITECH Event Scheduler has been configured correctly.

VMware Disk I/O Performance Enhancement Advice

vmware recommends defragDisk latency and I/O contention are the Achilles heels of virtualized systems. Due to a lack of understanding of the root cause of disk latency, many debate or are completely unaware of the need to defragment virtualized systems but VMware has finally put an end to that debate.

How To Improve Slow VMware Performance

improve slow vmwareVirtualization delivers great benefits for IT shops; however, it is plagued with the same performance issues that affect physical servers. These problems arise from the fact that in virtualized systems there are multiple instances of Windows server competing for the resources on a single host and multiple hosts connected to a SAN.
