New Diskeeper 2009 Bringing Servers to the Next Level of Performance

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - December 18, 2008) - Diskeeper Corporation today announced the release of new Diskeeper® 2009 Server edition. Packed with performance enhancing technologies, it offers faster application boot times, reduced power consumption for green computing initiatives and extended hardware life for tighter budgets.

All of this takes place in real time on even the busiest systems thanks to Diskeeper's proprietary InvisiTasking® processing technology.

Faster Application Boot Times

To accommodate the ever-increasing demands for faster file access speeds, Diskeeper includes I-FAAST® 2.0 (Intelligent File Access Acceleration Sequencing Technology). This squeezes 10% - 80% more speed out of the drive for the most commonly accessed files. This is on top of the notable gains found from standard real time defragmentation(1).

Green Computing

By defragmenting in real time, computing is now made permanently efficient -- due to the drives no longer having to work overtime searching through thousands of fragmented files. The implementation of Diskeeper routinely sees back-up times and anti-virus scans cut in half. This results in wattage and energy savings due to the reduction in power consumption(2).

Extended Hardware Life for Tighter Budgets

By increasing reliability, Diskeeper can extend the life of Windows® servers by an additional 1 - 2 years. This prevents unnecessary hardware upgrades that place undue pressure on tight IT budgets.

Zero Maintenance and Zero Overhead with InvisiTasking

It is this processing technology which truly sets Diskeeper apart from any product on the market. InvisiTasking prevents a defragmentation background process from ever interfering with application and operating system use of computer resources. Instead of letting the operating system scheduler allocate the entire computer system to each process, InvisiTasking empowers the system to allocate its various resources (CPU, memory, disk, and network) separately to the process that needs each one. This allows overlapping use of separate resources -- not just reducing system overhead, but eliminating it altogether. This means that when Diskeeper performs its operations, the server retains optimum performance and efficiency at all times -- Period.

Diskeeper 2009 Server Key Features:

--  Real-Time Defragmentation automatically handles performance-robbing
    fragmentation as it occurs to maintain system performance at top speed
    while reducing backup times and lowering boot times and eliminating the
    need for scheduling or manual defrag.
--  New! InvisiTasking technology advances ensure no resource conflict
    whatsoever while performing vital real time defrag operations allowing
    Diskeeper to consolidate files even faster on busy systems.
--  New! I-FAAST 2.0 (Intelligent File Access Acceleration Sequencing
    Technology) boosts access speeds for your most frequently used files (by an
    additional 10% - 80%).
--  Terabyte Volume Engine™ ensures optimum performance on unlimited
    sized drive volumes containing many thousands of fragmented files.
--  New! Powerful Free Space Defragmentation Engine has been enhanced to
    increase file-write performance.
--  Low Free Space Defrag Engine increases ability to effectively utilize
    existing storage and retrieve files faster -- even when you have less than
    1% free space.
--  New! MOM integration(3). Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) allows
    monitoring and management of computers interconnected by networks.
    Diskeeper provides MOM with numerous alerts, reports and the ability to
    manage and control product settings and configurations.
--  Frag Shield® 2.0 boosts reliability by automatically preventing
    crash-inducing fragmentation of critical system files.

Notes:

(1) Fragmentation: a condition caused by users writing, deleting and resizing their computer files on the hard drive. This causes files to be become scattered or "fragmented" into many pieces. The more fragmented these pieces of information are in, the longer it takes the computer to read them. Fragmentation is a major cause of performance degradation on servers. A "defragmenter" is a software program that consolidates all such files into one location, resulting in instant access of user's files and increased overall system performance and reliability.
