Hangin' out with Microsoft

by Michael 24. July 2009 11:18

Last week we were in New Orleans at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference.


Diskeeper Corporation staff met with numerous Microsoft PMs and executives regarding existing and future partnership opportunities. Derek De Vette, who overseas partner relations here at Diskeeper Coporation, met with Becky Lymberis, Senior Marketing Manager, Solutions Marketing. With Small Business Servers (SBS) often tasked to do just about everything under the sun for smaller businesses, they tend to need a great deal of advanced care and maintenance. Becky had this to say about Diskeeper on the Microsoft Facebook site:  

“Diskeeper 2009 defrag products increase the productivity of the workplace and keep business systems always running at their maximum peak performance. Diskeeper is a great application for Small Business Server because it helps prevent crashes, slowdowns and sluggishness, extending the life and enhancing performance of the server—helping small businesses to be more productive. Everyone should check out this solution. It’s one of the most cost effective ways to enhance the performance of your customer’s servers.”

2010, something's going to happen....

The next evolutionary step for defragmenters is coming.



V-locity is here!

by Michael 16. June 2009 06:00

The new virtual platform disk optimizer for Hyper-V platforms is now available for sale and as trialware.

V-locity with InvisiTasking technology installs on both the Windows Server 2008 OS that is running the virtual host and all Windows virtual machines (guests). Each component optimizes its respective Windows OS and performs defragmentation of files and consolidation of free space. This minimizes unnecessary I/O passed from the OS to the disk subsystem and aligns data on the drives for optimal access.

With the proprietary InvisiTasking, V-locity will automatically and invisibly defragment files and consolidate free space on every Windows system it is installed, eliminating unnecessary and excess I/O to restore system performance and reliability for the entire platform. At the same time, V-locity provides a tool to analyze and compact wasted virtual disk space (dynamic disks).

In accordance with most virtualization software products, pricing for V-locity is "per CPU-core" (similar to the traditional per-socket) rather than per operating system. This provides users a fixed cost for their optimization solutions, and makes licensing much easier and more predictable as they 'grow' those platforms.

Get more info about V-locity here.

Future versions are already in the works, including support for VMware's enterprise solutions.



Techworld interviews Diskeeper Corp exec about new technology

by Michael 15. June 2009 06:30

A while back we undertook some interesting research projects. We built some high-tech tools to collect data about Windows behavior during the boot process. After analyzing that data, we realized we had a fantastic opportunity to dramatically improve system boot up for common Windows desktop platforms.

Techworld recently broke the story. You can read about it here.

You'll hear more about this new solution in the coming months as it hits the streets in popular laptop and desktop systems.



Complimentary license for "XP Mode"!

by Michael 22. May 2009 11:34

We are following suit with Microsoft, which is offering an additional complimentary license of Windows XP for users of high end Windows 7 editions. That "feature" is called XP Mode. All of our current and future products (Diskeeper, HyperFast, Undelete) will include an allowance to install a second instance of that licensed software in that XP Mode (virtual Windows XP operating system) as well. We are updating our EULA to "officially" note this, but you heard it hear "officially" as well.

If you are using the Windows 7 RC you can download the XP Mode feature and other requirements to run it here.
