Fragmentation: Rival of Response Time

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - Maybe computer system response time wasn't always important. Back in the day when they were first invented, computers were somewhat of a novelty and used only for high-end math and science calculations. As they came increasingly into use, however, computers evolved from a novelty into the competitive edge for government agencies and businesses alike -- and at that point the game was on. Response time became paramount.

No surprise, it still is. Response time can mean the difference between making a crucial stock market trade or losing it, between having the results of a vital analysis on time or too late, or making that deal with a new client or letting it slide to the competition. The development of CPUs, memory, storage devices and other elements has always been -- and always will be -- firmly aimed at increasing that almighty factor.

Practically since the beginning, one enemy of response time has been file fragmentation. The more a file is fragmented, the longer it takes to access and the slower the response. Defrag technology was developed early on to combat this menace, and fortunately, Diskeeper Corporation has now brought it to the level of being fully automatic, requiring no scheduling or other extra maintenance. Response time is simply and always kept at maximum.

The key to Diskeeper® software's defrag operation lies in its proprietary InvisiTasking® technology which, along with maximizing response time, also defeats another enemy of company operations: downtime. Utilizing only otherwise-idle system resources, InvisiTasking allows Diskeeper 2009 to defragment consistently, never needing scheduling and never negatively impacting users. Optimum performance and reliability are maintained at all times.

Diskeeper software also saves countless IT hours previously spent in either manually defragmenting or scheduling defragmentation runs. Response time is crucial. With Diskeeper defrag you can always have it -- without the necessity of costly downtime due to fragmentation.
