Diskeeper's New Architecture - a blog for the IT professional.

by Michael 17. May 2007 17:35
Foreword: I've attempted to minimize the techno-jargon as much as possible in this blog to make it more readable, but note that there are still a few terms that may be confusing. Wikipedia or Webopedia are good sources if you need a better or more thorough definition. In previous years there have always been three major components to Diskeeper. One was the User Interfaces of which there are two - a graphical one (GUI), and a command line version (CLI). The second component was the defragmentation "engines" of which there were also more than one. A defrag engine was the executable that was responsible for consolidating file and free space fragments. It can in several forms, DfrgNTFS.exe, DfrgFAT.exe, DfrgNTFS1.exe (TVE and/or I-FAAST) were the "online" defragmentation engines. AutoNTFS.exe and AutoFAT.exe were the bootime defrag engines. You'll note that Windows names their built-in defragmenters similarly as that code was based off of technology we provided them in the mid-late 90's. The third piece is the Diskeeper Service (DKservice.exe.) which was responsible for scheduling defragmentation, handling the communication between the engines and the UI, as well as various other communication means (e.g. Check for Updates, Remote Control request from other computers, etc...)

Diskeeper and Windows Home Server

by Michael 15. May 2007 14:27
Today Microsoft announced Diskeeper's planned support for Windows Home Server. You can read more about it here or here. Windows Home Server will help families with multiple PCs easily centralize, share and protect their digital pictures, music, documents and videos. It simplifies a family's life, connects their digital devices and experiences, and will grow with their needs. "We are pleased to work with Diskeeper to help provide maximum system performance and reliability possible to Windows Home Server customers," said Steven VanRoekel, director of Windows Server Solutions at Microsoft. "Diskeeper has worked with Microsoft since Windows NT. It's great to see them extend their expertise to our new platform for the home." Diskeeper Corp is one of the orginal 8 software companies to support Microsoft's new consumer-oriented server system. As a "headless" operating system, the automatic, hands-off design of Diskeeper will be a big asset to maintaining optimum performance on a system that is sure to store large quantities of data. If you are beta testing Windows Home Server today, you can trial Diskeeper Server for the time being. An official Diskeeper release at a consumer-friendly price will be available in the near future. I'll post a release announcement on the blog when that is available.

by Michael 4. May 2007 17:40
Diskeeper 2007 took second place in Storage Management Software in the eWEEK "Channel Products of the Year". This was rated by Resellers based on 4 areas: familiarity with product, profit potential of the product to the channel, opportunity the product presents for associated sales, and overall market impact of the product. It's nice to get this kind of recognition for our company's efforts to support the channel. It's been a major committment, especially in the last few years, and has been a large factor in our current growth and expansion. Speaking of channel support, several of our Channel Reps and I will be at the QLogic Fusion event in San Diego next week. If you are a Reseller attending this show, stop by our booth!
