Diskeeper and TCO

by Anthony 7. October 2009 03:17

I was speaking with one of Diskeeper’s Channel Partners at SMB Nation last weekend during lunch and we were interrupted by a VAR that said he was familiar with Diskeeper but wasn’t sure why it was necessary to install the software on his clients machines.

The Channel Partner I was with did a double-take and politely asked the VAR if he was kidding. (Truthfully he wasn’t all that polite).

So, by request, I will provide a number of facts that will help to  keep your clients systems running smoothly, increasing their TCO.

Extend Your Clients System Life

This is the one investment that pays for itself many times over. Keeping systems fragmentation-free can extend the life of your hardware up to 3 additional years. Even extend- ing system life an additional six months or a year, the savings are phenomenal. The elimination of defrag scheduling and administrator attention saves time and money, while keeping performance at peak levels throughout the day. The Help Desk traffic reduction is wide ranging. Your client’s IT department (if they have one) suddenly has more time to spend on those projects that needed to be finished yesterday.

TGIF at SMB Nation

by Anthony 6. October 2009 03:18

You know you’re in Las Vegas by the flashing lights and non-stop bells and whistles of the slot machines along with the massive scale of buffet offerings.

You know you’re at the Riviera when, as you exit the elevator, you’re given a choice; go right and you’re getting married at the chapel. Go left, you’re getting tattooed.

Left it was -


Jim Locke and the SMBTN boys and girl were on hand and included our promotional materials on their exhibit table. We were also part of their raffle, offering a copy of Diskeeper 2010 (when it becomes available) to a lucky winner.

While Managed Services remained a focus of many of the sessions, VoIP and Social Media solutions were definitely the “next thing” buzz of the show.

And Diskeeper 2010 was teased into every conversation. “When can I get my hands on a copy?” you may ask.

The clock is ticking.


SMB Nation Time

by Anthony 30. September 2009 14:44


It's time for SMB Nation, with Harry Brelsford moving the caravan of VAR's to Las Vegas after 6 years in Seattle and its environs.

This year's event will focus on Windows 7, the impact of social media, SMB VoIP and whatever else comes up during the impromptu hallway meetings that frequently occur.

Will there be a server build party? The real question is; how can you call it a party without a server build?

Jim Locke and the SMBTN group will be on hand and are  sponsoring a couple of pre-day (Friday, Oct 1) training certification events for Trend Micro and Speakeasy.

And we'll be on hand hinting and nudging our upcoming release, Diskeeper 2010. We're planning on shaking things up with this one. Here's something to chew on, "Diskeeper 2010 addresses the cause of fragmentation and prevents up to 85% and more of the fragmentation that has long plagued every hard disk. This technology is unavailable anywhere else, and nothing else comes close." 

Want to find out more? Come see me at the show. I'll be holding the torque wrench during the server build.
