New Tests Show Diskeeper 2009 Powers Servers With Unprecedented Speed and Reliability

Saving Time for System Administrators

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - Diskeeper Corporation, innovators in performance and reliability technologies, today announced new testing on Diskeeper® 2009 Server edition demonstrating extraordinary performance gains for enterprise servers. Since the release of new Diskeeper 2009, system administrator's reports are pouring in exclaiming improved conditions across their networks.

Today's servers are stretched to their performance limit with increased demands for data storage, bandwidth and faster disk I/O, so maintaining a stable machine at peak performance is essential. Server performance was tested in these three key areas: file back-ups, antivirus scans, and I/O reads. Across all tests, the improvement after defragmentation was substantial.

With Diskeeper 2009 Server installed, file backups experienced a dramatic 2.7X reduction in time used and a 379% improvement in data transfer rate, starting at 1,372 MB/min and after defragmentation skyrocketing to 6,570 MB/min. Antivirus scans were improved by 35% and the read I/O per second metric showed a 24% improvement.

Diskeeper 2009 Server edition enables Windows™ servers to run at their maximum potential. By reducing the time spent on common operations, increasing performance and improving system reliability, systems administrators have truly done their job of maintaining network efficiency. In fact, thousands of IT pros wouldn't consider running their servers without Diskeeper.

"The higher speed of the server with no drain on system resources has enabled faster backups, anti-virus scans and user access to files and databases," says Dennis Cass, US Army CONUS. "The fully automated functions make it much easier to keep a system/server up and running at peak performance with little to no need for the user or IT people to get involved."

With the advent of the propriety InvisiTasking® technology, 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. InvisiTasking monitors resource use and ensures only idle, untapped resources are used to solve fragmentation so servers can be defragmented quickly, even during the heaviest traffic times, without ever being slowed down by resource conflicts.

"The disk issues we were experiencing have gone away once Diskeeper was loaded on the system," said Louis Walker, IT Manager at Vestcom. "With Diskeeper's InvisiTasking we have noticed a smaller amount of system resources being used. The disk I/Os have gotten faster because of decreased seek times associated with a non-fragmented drive."

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.
