What is Newskeeper?

by Michael 19. May 2009 07:36

Newskeeper is a monthly/bi-monthly print magazine published by Diskeeper Corporation. We mail it out to enterprise customers quite regularly.

It contains technical info and articles that help IT professionals better understand and use our solutions.

You can read the latest version here. A highlight in this issue is an interview with the Technical Manager (George Dzieciol) for many of our products, including the eponymous Diskeeper. In it he talks about the Titan Defrag Engine, the driving technology behind the Diskeeper 2009 EnterpriseServer edition.

Not Just Another Pretty Sticker:

The current issue of Redmond Mag has an 18 page pullout from Microsoft about the value of their Windows Server certification program. In it is a highlight about the benefits we've seen by routinely certifying Diskeeper. Achieving certification certainly results in a better experience for customers. 

Centrify Corp, one of the other products highlighted posted the pullout as a pdf on their site. You can read it here.

I found the back page Microsoft ad amusing. Is it just me or is that a photo-chop of Marc Cuban yelling at an NBA ref?



At a computer trade show near you?

Diskeeper has a booth at both the Microsoft Tech Ed trade show this week in Los Angeles, and the Interop show next week in Las Vegas. If you are attending, stop by and pick up a cool comic book, some software, and maybe even catch a sneak peak presentation of a brand new software product.



Move over Comma Separated Values, there's a new acronym in town

by Michael 4. May 2009 10:58

John Savill (formerly of and currently of Windows IT Pro's "FAQ for Windows" just added a new topic on defragmenting Clustered Shared Volumes (CSV). As if IT doesn't have enough 3-letter acronyms already, CSV is a major feature in the upcoming 2008 Server R2 releases (aka Windows 7 Server).

CSV allows write access to a given VHD from more than just the one host node, and quite a few other enterprise-virtualization necessities. CSV is the backbone technology that allows for the new "Live Migration" feature. R2 is a major step forward to making Microsoft's virtualization solution more "enterprise-worthy", and a major step forward to supporting VDI on Hyper-V.  

Here is a link on setting up and using CSV
