Diskeeper 2010 Administrator edition released

by Michael 15. January 2010 05:48

Diskeeper 2010 Administrator is now complete and available for broad use. You can download trialware from here. For customers previously using the Release Candidate (RC), you can go to your Diskeeper Account page and download your full licensed version. We made numerous user experience enhancements from the RC.

One improved UI example is the new start page:

The new major feature in Diskeeper 2010 Administrator is the “at-a-glance” network-wide overview of disk performance and system health. This network performance dashboard includes access for more details on noted issues and ability to directly initiate tasks such as remote control, deployment, and configuration to quickly remedy the situation. The Dashboard provides important customizable alerts on systems that have:

• Low free space

• Severe file fragmentation

• Extreme paging file or meta data fragmentation

• Failures to defragment or where Diskeeper is not operational

• Product activation expiration

• Diskeeper updates available for installation

The "alerts" are now available for both computers with Diskeeper and those without it. As with prior versions of Diskeeper Administrator, "reports" continue to be available for both systems without and without Diskeeper.

Ops Manager (both MOM and SCOM) Management Packs are included with the Diskeeper Administrator full version. If you require a trial of this solution, please contact our Corporate Sales dept.

Have You Implemented A SAN Solution For Your Clients?

by Anthony 28. October 2009 04:37

Have you added or thought about adding a SAN solution to your customer’s existing systems? Read the following from a recent white paper:

“SAN defragmenting offers an alternative to costly hardware costs incurred by adding drives. Why? While SANs offer extremely efficient and high-performing data storage, it is not their job to address file system-level fragmentation. No matter how efficient data retrieval can be, and how much physical disk limitations can be mitigated, the added overhead on the operating system retrieving the file is beyond the scope of SAN technology, and is impacted by file fragmentation.

How are companies addressing this? Some simply ignore the issue, believing that because of the inherently high performance of SANs, defragmenting offers little or no benefit.

Others assume that SAN or virtualization vendors address the issue with features within their offerings. However, while some SAN vendors offer tools that work within their proprietary SAN file systems, none of these tools address local disk file fragmentation.

These wrong assumptions cause many to simply ignore the problem – a tactic that is not an option in today’s business environment. Companies need to defragment their SAN to achieve a noticeable improvement in system performance.”

And read the following SAN testimonial:

“Do I consider Diskeeper a vital tool on our network? Without a doubt.

I have been in situations in years past where large SAN arrays failed due to file system corruption. Once at that point, recovering info from the actual units is pointless and all you can do is pray that the Backup Administrators did their job. Since those times I have made it a point to ensure that the file system fragmentation is kept to a minimum, with the added bonus of being able to detect initial corruption earlier.

After running Diskeeper on various servers in multiple configurations, I never had to worry about file system performance degradation. That in itself makes the product worthwhile. It is also why I make sure that we renew our licenses each year.

Sometimes the hallmark of a software is how often you use it. With Diskeeper, its hallmark is that it does a fantastic job after setting it once and letting Diskeeper do what it does best, without further user interaction.”

Are you a VAR, System Integrator with a VL customer that’s on the fence about upgrading their site’s 2008 Diskeeper copies to 2009?

I recommend giving our Sales Managers a call.

They’re experts at working with you and your customers to find solutions that benefit all.

Would a conference call with one of our technical staff help? How about a copy of the latest trialware? Or DPAN (Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks)? A testimonial or two from our customers?

Let us know. We’ll take care of it.
