How necessary are Defragmentation utilities on Todays Servers and Workstations?

I was told by someone 2 years ago that Defragging on Windows 2003 and XP was unnecessary.

I have recently run the Windows Defragmentation Analyzer on Several Server HD's and the report indicated that they needed Defragging.

Is the investment in products like Diskkeeper justified or necessary?

Thoughts and opinions?

I think defragmentation is necessary regardless of 2003 or xp.  I would recommend Winternals Defrag Manager if you are running a decent network and want this to occur automatically on a schedule.
