Using Sitekeeper to mitigate the new MS WORD security vulnerability

by Michael 25. May 2006 14:55
The latest security vulnerability to raise eyebrows is the trojan described in Microsoft Security Advisory (919637). Unfortunately the final fix from Microsoft is not scheduled for release until a few weeks from now, though I do commend Microsoft on informing the IT public and offering interim workarounds. Major antivirus firms currently rank the threat of this trojan as "low" and already have updates to detect it, so I'd suggest caution as the workarounds do inhibit user functionality. Read on and I'll present a customizable way to deploy these fixes to select targets...

Defragmenting databases

by Michael 17. May 2006 19:57
In order to squeeze optimal performance out of a database, there are two "layers" that need defragmentation; the database file(s) themselves, and the internal records/indexes within those files. Diskeeper, of course safely and automatically defragments files and free space (yes even live databases). Advanced Diskeeper features like I/O Smart ensure that defragmentation can occur during production without impact to the system. Diskeeper does not offer, nor perform, internal file defragmentation. I've authored several white papers that discuss the internal defragmentation/compaction tools Microsoft offers with their Exchange and SQL products. It is those tools, development by the application vendors, that have the understanding required to address internal fragmentation. You can read up on those white papers in the Knowledge Center. The problem with these free provided tools is they are cumbersome to use and integrate with IT operations. Fortunately there are vendors that have dramatically improved upon the basic scripting tools and offer powerful features so you can avoid the long and often complex coding normally required to operate them. I'd like to introduce you to a couple of great products I'm familiar with and personally recommend.

Learn more about virtualization...

by Michael 9. May 2006 15:01
We recently released a new white paper on Virtualization and Disk Performance. For anyone interested in reading it, visit our Knowledge Center - there is a link on the left of this page to take you there. If you want to learn more about how virtualization works I recommend the video on Microsoft's MSDN site (link below). It's an hour long, but well worth it. http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=163022
