Diskeeper has long been a popular compliment for design and engineering software systems, including by the the most popular design and enginerring software company itself:

“Diskeeper indeed provided the ROI we expected. We are very satisfied. I have been using your product on my personal desktop and at work for the past few versions. It always proved to be a valuable product for transparent defrag and overall performance. 

Prior to installing Diskeeper our systems were almost unresponsive. This easy deployment was done right away as Diskeeper was much needed. It is a fine product that we rely upon.  It was reported to me that the automatic defrag did not take any visible resources or produce any slower performance which was really appreciated. 

The automatic defrag also helped overall performance greatly on the files sytem access. One of the folders has millions of files in it with no subfolders and it was almost inaccessible before the Diskeeper implementation due to the fragmentation level being very high”

Two Benefits of V-locity on Virtual Platforms

by karen 16. August 2011 03:36

A major concern with virtual guest operating systems in a virtualized environment is the possible resource contention introduced as each virtual guest operates independent of the others.

With respect to storage, Diskeeper Corporation’s V-locity 3.0 virtual platform disk optimizer mitigates over-utilization in two ways:

First, each V-locity Guest installation coordinates resource scheduling with a centrally installed V-locity Host Agent.  These guests automatically discover the V-locity Host Agent following installation. Once connected together in this fashion, V-locity Guests cooperate to complete each of their defragmentation tasks in a manner most efficient to the virtual server's resources as a whole.  

Second, the automatic zeroing of free space feature ensures that unused space on virtual drives is zeroed out and compacted in such a way that when a virtual guest is migrated to a different virtual server via VMotion, only the allocated data is transferred.  This speeds up the VMotion process and decreases the load on the shared storage subsystem.

RainWorx specializes in Online Auction Software.  Our hosted web sites are mostly our Auction Software customers.  As such, every auction listing (for each customer, on each server) has one or more images associated, so we have a very high volume of images being uploaded which could potentially create a lot of fragmentation.

A Wildcat Success

by karen 25. July 2011 05:52

I can verify that Diskeeper has kept fragmentation in check across our Windows environment. We have been using Diskeeper in our environment for almost two years with good results.  We started with version 2010, and installed it on all of our Windows servers, both physical and virtual, server 2003 and 2008 R2 - over 800 machines in all. 

That first version of Diskeeper generated some impressive numbers across our environment – 33 million files defragmented, 947 million fragments prevented\eliminated (we were over 1 billion at one point there), and 21.6% performance increase on defragmented files. 

Not having to worry about the fragmentation on all of our many servers has saved us a lot of management headache.

Major Performance Improvement after Running Diskeeper on DFS server

by karen 4. May 2011 05:53

“We are now running Diskeeper 2011 EnterpriseServer on our a DFS server which houses all our corporate documents. This server has about 500GB of files and was heavily fragmented prior to installing Diskeeper. 

“Users were experiencing latency issues, login delays (roaming profiles) and sometimes apps would freeze upon saving to that server. After running Diskeeper for a few weeks, there was a major performance improvement. We went from getting several calls a week prior to the Diskeeper install, down to a couple of calls a month. 

“The other server is a backup repository that houses our SQL backups, BackupExec files and other archived info. This server has over 10TB of storage. Since running Diskeeper, the overall performance of the server and backup times improved greatly.”

Instant Defrag Makes JAWS Software 5 Times More Accessible

by karen 26. April 2011 03:02

"I am a blind reseller and consultant for people with special needs/vision impaired who use JAWS, the Windows screen reading software. I have been very pleasantly surprised with the new version 2011 of Diskeeper. It works great with our screen reading technology!Diskeeper’s Instant Defrag makes JAWS as much as 5 times more accessible.  It is very cool!I appreciate the fact that your software engineers took the time to make Diskeeper usable by blind people.  A very pretty user interface doesn’t matter to us, but when you design the product to make it usable for people with special needs, this definitely does matter.

Diskeeper works very well with no adjustments required.  The Instant Defrag, IntelliWrite, InvisiTasking and Efficient Mode are all enabled by default when we install the software. It works easily and well.I have been recommending Diskeeper to JAWS users from Portland, Maine to Perth, Australia!"
