Diskeeper TV

by Michael 31. January 2008 20:23
OK, I know this sound ridiculous but let me explain; and NO, this is not a 30 minute TV show about defrag. Diskeeper TV will be a series of short video clips on a variety of subjects that relate to system performance and the role Diskeeper plays. The purpose is really to shortcut reading a manual or white paper to find out some information - quickly. We want to bring you content in a fast and easily digestible manner. 12 page white papers, 3 pages of install notes, 2 more pages of How-To's and Best Practices aren't fun to read - and they pile up. Sure, sometimes these things are necessary, and we aren't replacing that either, but we hope this new format helps you out. I have to say that we're also doing this to have some fun - we're a bunch of marketing/PR guys with time to kill. And, while we aren't taking ourselves seriously (in the light-hearted spirit of this project) the topics will be all business. We've started the site here, with a few "general" videos to get the ball rolling. We have a few more clips in the works for the next few weeks, but after that we want to here from you want specific topics you'd like covered in a 1-2 minute video clip. The topic covered can be as technical as you request or as basic as needed. We'll try to accommodate every comment. Please let us know by commenting here in the blog!

Computer Outlook Interview on Windows Home Server

by Michael 31. January 2008 14:24
John Iasiuolo, host of Computer Outlook, interviewed Joel Sider, a Senior Product Manager, this past Monday (1/28/08) about the new Windows Home Server (WHS) system. The interview discusses the basic purpose of Home Server, who it was built for, computer-heterogeneous support (i.e. Mac's), some of the Add-In applications available (both free and commercial), such as tools that help you publish your own websites, to hosting your own blog, to performance apps like Diskeeper. Joel wraps up the interview with info on where he expects to see the Home Server ecosystem evolve in the future. If you are new to what Windows Home Server is all about or simply curious (and have an hour to kill) this podcast can give you a good overview of what this technology can offer. Listen to it here. The podcast can be downloaded from here.

New Software Release Now Available

by Michael 30. January 2008 13:42
We've just released a new version of Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks (DPAN) for use by corporate IT professionals. It's a free tool that can be installed on any supported Windows OS connected to a network (Windows-based Domain is highly recommended). From that single point you can select other networked systems and scan them for fragmentation and disk performance statistics. It provides specific details on each system as well as a high-level aggregation of systems into performance ranges. While this functionality is already available in Diskeeper 2008 Administrator, it is now available in a free product. Here's a list of just some of the additions in the new DPAN: Create custom groups for easy management Select systems to scan through the Active Directory or IP Addresses Run scheduled reports and have the results automatically e-mailed to you Export performance reports to a portable and sort-able format (CSV) MSSQL database storage Go to the downloads page to get it.

Diskeeper's new CEO

by Michael 27. January 2008 18:12
Diskeeper Corporation announced Lisa Terrenzi as its new Chief Executive Officer. She was promoted by Founder and Chairman, Craig Jensen. "Lisa has been indispensable to the success of Diskeeper Corporation," notes Mr. Jensen. "Under her leadership in 2007, the company achieved the highest-ever sales in its 26 year history. She is a competent executive who more than earned the promotion." A 17-year company veteran, Ms. Terrenzi began in accounts receivable as a customer accounts manager. Known for her zeal and enthusiasm for people, she rapidly rose up the organization's ranks to oversee its R&D division, later developed its strategic alliances area and eventually became Deputy CEO and a member of the Board of Directors. Mr. Jensen will continue to oversee the company's strategic focus as the Chairman of the Board of Directors while overseeing expansion operations into the Asian Pacific region.

Diskeeper and M.O.M. - Field Testers Needed!

by Michael 19. January 2008 22:22
If you use Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 (MOM) - now known as System Center Operations Manager 2007(SCOM) in its latest iteration, and are interested in testing Diskeeper support for this systems management product, please contact our Field Test Manager at qtesting@diskeeper.com. To enter into the field test group we request that you be a Diskeeper volume license customer and ideally can manage Diskeeper client software from a "production" MOM server already in use to manage other applications/systems. The systems [servers] running the Diskeeper software do not need to be used in production though. The field test is slated to begin in Q1 2008. Participating Field testers will have early access to a certified MOM-supported version of Diskeeper (i.e. the Management Pack and Diskeeper software).
