Is JKdefrag for Windows a good program for enterprise? Is it safe? Can it be run on a running production server without fear of files becoming closed, unavailable, etc.?

JKdefrag, is something I'm considering to download for use in the production, enterprise-level environment I support. I don't care if it's slower than Diskeeper. If it handles open files gracefully, doesn't cause other apps to slow noticeably, and poses NO RISK AT ALL, I'd really like to try it out - after hours, of course.
I'm looking for a thumbs-up or thumbs-down from someone who has used it with a Windows server OS like Server 2003 to tell me if it has been effective and safe to use in a production environment. I am not looking for Vista or XP experience or advice or conclusions produced from googling product-info websites; I've already done that. The risk level is kind-of high here, and demands more checking than just basic research, which is why successful results on unmonitored workstations is not really helpful here. I need to know if this is safe and robust and can be immediately deployed without downtime or resource hogging or any other event that might draw attention to me! Thx.
