Going Virtual - faster and more reliably

by Michael 29. May 2009 04:44

Here is a cool success story I thought I'd share:

"We find Diskeeper to be vital and we use it for our virtual servers (VMware) as well.  We redirect our user desktops and My Documents folders to network shares and have found the response times improved quite a bit after defragging the virtual server.   We also found that it cuts the time needed to perform a P2V (convert physical machines to virtual) by about 90% if the physical server is defragged beforehand.  Case in point, we had a few physical Citrix servers that simply did not want to P2V but simply worked as expected after defrag and very quickly. Thank you Diskeeper."

Complimentary license for "XP Mode"!

by Michael 22. May 2009 11:34

We are following suit with Microsoft, which is offering an additional complimentary license of Windows XP for users of high end Windows 7 editions. That "feature" is called XP Mode. All of our current and future products (Diskeeper, HyperFast, Undelete) will include an allowance to install a second instance of that licensed software in that XP Mode (virtual Windows XP operating system) as well. We are updating our EULA to "officially" note this, but you heard it hear "officially" as well.

If you are using the Windows 7 RC you can download the XP Mode feature and other requirements to run it here.

In the beginning...

by Michael 21. May 2009 11:30

A long time ago in a server room far, far away there was the weekend effort of IT to "backup, reformat, restore". Alternatively one could "squeeze" all the data to the front of the disk/volume after taking the volume offline and running special utlities. This was how fragmentation used to be solved. Eventually defragmentation evolved into online Manual and eventually Scheduled tasks. That lasted for years until it evolved again to Automatic and then invisible Real Time defragmentation, for which Diskeeper 2007 through 2009 stand alone. But it is time to evolve once again, stay tuned for the sequel...
