New Technology Boosts System Performance

New InvisiTasking™ Technology Keeps Computers Running Consistently at Maximum Performance, Driving the Success of Any Business for Years to Come

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- Any successful business person knows that when it comes to making a sound investment, proper research is an absolute must. Only after carefully weighing the pros and cons of the investment in question, can a suitable decision be made. Of course, evaluating a software investment is no different, and with regard to defrag software especially, the incorrect choice can significantly affect the system performance of your servers and workstations in the future.

Now, what exactly is defragmentation (defrag)? To understand, we must first cover its opposite -- fragmentation. Fragmentation can be defined as whole files that are broken up into numerous pieces and scattered to various locations on the hard drive. Fragmentation also occurs through the wiping out of continuous free space across the hard drive. Although unknown to some, fragmentation builds up on a computer every single time you use it.

Inevitably, as time goes on, we find that our computers mysteriously begin to gradually slowdown and even freeze completely -- wasting our time and backlogging our workload.

Of course, you don't have to take my word for it. Check out Windows IT Pro's "The Impact of Disk Fragmentation" whitepaper, by Joe Kinsella.

To remedy this fragmentation, you need software. Defrag software is fairly inexpensive and clearly gets the job done, taking your computers through a "fountain of youth" of sorts, restoring them to their initial functionality and system performance and then some.

In fact, software such as Diskeeper 2007 by Diskeeper Corporation (www.diskeeper.com), with its InvisiTasking technology, is truly automatic and rids your computers of fragmentation on-the-fly as it occurs, while only using idle resources.

Our systems cost money and we work hard for it. For most of us, a sudden computer crash would be disastrous. The additional time and money necessary for repairs can sometimes be irreplaceable.

We owe it to ourselves to install defrag software. It will help us make up for time lost in the past, and ensure the maximized and constant system performance of our servers and workstations for years to come.
