A Diskeeper story? Yes, something does come to mind:

by Colleen Toumayan 25. August 2009 10:16

Our Executive Vice President had a 3-year old Dell computer that had probably never been defragmented.  It had only 512MB of RAM and when I worked on it, it was EXTREMELY slow.  To open up MS Word had to take 10-15 seconds or more.   I installed Diskeeper Professional and let him know what I did to speed up his PC.  Much to my surprise he called me back a day later and thanked me for speeding up his PC.  He said it was quicker and the applications he opened were more responsive.   I hung up the phone in amazement. Usually the only time a user calls is when they have a problem, not to tell you how well something is working.  Obviously Diskeeper made quite an impact on him and his PC!

by Derek 18. August 2009 10:48


Anyone can perform a network migration WITH downtime. WITHOUT downtime is another story.  If you’d like to find out how, check out The Network Migration Workbook: Zero Downtime Migration Strategies for Microsoft Networks by prominent Reseller and technical author, Karl Palachuk. Amongst the best practices in use is the full implementation of Diskeeper.

We maintain many networks and knowing Diskeeper has our back gives us peace of mind. Our installation checklist is really only comprised of monitoring the installation while the technician eats a pastry, then verifying that a few default settings. It is set-it-and-forget-it at its best.   We use and have recommend Diskeeper exclusively for over 15 years. We know it is the best of breed tool for maintaining optimal drive performance and health on all of our client servers and workstations.” -Karl Palachuck

No more delays in business critical ERP apps

by Colleen Toumayan 12. August 2009 05:47
Great customer success:

“Diskeeper is vital; it helps our business with what we consider preventative maintenance.  We also feel that this software keeps our server and our server apps running smoothly and efficiently as we have 50 users who require simultaneous access to our data for operation of our facilities.  I run Diskeeper on my primary ERP server which is our business critical application.  We saw within the first day, that previous delays in processing data had decreased.  Our current ERP, called Eagle, was installed and implemented about 2.5 years ago and is made by a company called DMS (now owned by AFS).  This server is one of four we run Diskeeper on.  Since we are food warehousing company, we chose an application that was built specifically for our industry.  Also as we are a company that ships and processes orders 24 hours a day, 6 days a week, being able to run at optimal performance is always crucial for us. “

Most Annoying Industry Buzzwords

by Derek 7. August 2009 08:35

On a humorous note: I just returned from CompTIA’s Breakaway Conference in Vegas (Computing Technical Industry Association). While there, they published the results of a membership survey question which asked, “What is the most annoying industry buzzword?

The results were as follows:

1.       Value prop

2.       Paradigm shift

I would be amazed to see what would come up if they asked for the most annoying acronyms! Any takers?

the times they are a changin'

Here is a sample screenshot from an upcoming new Diskeeper release:

This graph works like the InvisiTasking graph (updates a measurement every second), but I can't tell you what it's measuring just yet (had to scratch that part out).

You won't have to wait much longer though...
