Access Files Faster New Whitepaper Documents Diskeeper Speeds Server File Access up to 30%

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - Diskeeper Corporation, innovators in performance and reliability technologies, today announced the release of a new whitepaper that shows Diskeeper® 2009 improves server performance. The paper, "The Impact of Disk Fragmentation on Servers," by David Chernicoff of Windows IT Pro, tests the effects of fragmentation on typical storage related tasks such as file copy and file access. "The single, consistent result that appears in all of our tests is that defragmented server drives using Diskeeper deliver better performance," said Mr. Chernicoff.

Tests conducted on Windows Server 2008 showed file copy improved up to 45% and file access time experienced improvements upwards of 30% with Diskeeper 2009 Server edition installed. The evidence is clear, "Defragmented disks are a significant time saver for common user tasks," said Mr. Chernicoff.

File copy and file access are the most basic tasks done by a server, but speed and performance of these tasks are critical to overall server operation. The negative effects that fragmentation can have on these tasks are devastating; creating problems such as slowdowns, freezes, and complete crashes as fragmentation steadily corrupts system performance. Tests have shown these issues directly affect the company's bottom line.

"Given how often these types of tasks are performed in most business environments, the value of defragmentation cannot be understated," said Mr. Chernicoff. "As shown in these tests, basic data manipulation is much faster on defragmented storage."

Diskeeper 2009 Server edition enables Windows® servers to perform at their peak. By reducing the time spent on common server operations such as file copy and file access, system administrators can save time, increase performance and experience a near immediate ROI.

Diskeeper 2009 is truly in a class of its own, as it is the only defragmenter to operate in real-time, completely invisibly in the background with the advent of the proprietary technology InvisiTasking®. InvisiTasking monitors resource use and ensures only idle, untapped resource are used to solve fragmentation so servers can be defragmented quickly, even during the heaviest traffic times, without being slowed down by resource conflicts.

"To prevent file fragmentation, the best methodology is an ongoing background file defragmentation process, the benefits of which are clearly demonstrated by this test," said Mr. Chernicoff. "Diskeeper is the only true server defragmentation software that runs silently in the background, continually improving performance."

The server class Diskeeper 2009 editions include Diskeeper Server, Diskeeper EnterpriseServer and Diskeeper Administrator. Download free trialware at www.diskeeper.com. For volume licensing discounts, call 800-829-6468 or your favorite reseller.
