Preparing for Growth: Diskeeper Expands Download Bandwith

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 6, 2006 -- Diskeeper® Corporation, makers of the number one automatic defragmenter for Windows®, is leveraging Akamai Technologies Inc.®, the leading global service provider for accelerating content and business processes online, to accommodate the influx of download traffic expected for its forthcoming 2007 defragmenter release.

"Twice we've been surprised by the demand for Diskeeper with our new version releases," notes Jeff Medina, Diskeeper's VP for eBusiness. "Not this year. Having just surpassed 22 million licenses sold, we know to expect a web rush and overly prepared our ability to support a global launch and ensure increased completed downloads by going with Akamai."

Internet traffic conditions and high loads during periods of peak demand can dramatically impact software download speed and reliability. Akamai's Electronic Software Delivery leverages the power of the globally distributed EdgePlatform to maximize performance for users and provide capacity for the largest surges in traffic. The company was chosen to ensure Diskeeper's web visitors and down-loaders would be well serviced during peak traffic periods and major version releases.
