Title

The Impact of Logical and Physical Fragmentation in a Virtual Environment (Raxco) 

Location

MPR A 

Time

10:40 

Notes

Fragmentation is a normal byproduct of the Windows file system, but there is a great deal of misunderstanding with respect to what it really is and its impact. This presentation debunks the myths, describes the differences between logical and physical fragmentation,  and explains the impact both have on real and virtual system performance. We examine the implications of fragmentation in a virtual environment where there is competition for finite resources between guests, and between the guests and the host. The presentation addresses issues with both ESX and Hyper-V virtualization platforms and offers solutions to minimizing the potential for conflicts and maximizing virtual I/O throughput.
