What Diskeeper is all about
As the IT environment becomes more complex, performance bottlenecks in the underlying infrastructure can seriously affect an entire site’s productivity. Diskeeper® 2011 data performance technology brings a critical efficiency boost to IT sites that is constant, automatic and cost-effective. It proactively prevents up to 85% of all fragmentation (scattered file fragments randomly stored across the hard drive) before it can even occur and instantly defrags the rest.
Key Diskeeper business features:
IntelliWrite® technology. Dramatically improves system response no other solution can touch. At the deepest level of system activity, files are written in pieces and scattered around the disk, creating a profound waste of system resources and progressively accumulating I/O bottlenecks. IntelliWrite prevents this fragmentation before it can happen by writing files contiguously. IntelliWrite is the only technology that can prevent fragmentation on thin provisioned disks without requiring movement of any data and consequent increases in thin provisioned storage.
NEW! InvisiTasking® technology. The most intelligent and adaptive background processing technology ever available has been improved to use even more idle system resources faster, so Diskeeper can maintain performance on even the largest and busiest systems with zero resource conflicts.
NEW! Instant Defrag™ engine. For the first time ever, no newly fragmented files can slow performance, because Instant Defrag immediately defrags those files before they can be read. Instant Defrag is a new intelligence that understands how your files are used and ensures they never have to be read in pieces. Combined with IntelliWrite, every system runs at peak performance 24/7 regardless of workload. No system has ever been able to do this before!
NEW! Efficient Mode. In addition to an extensive defragmentation mode, Efficient Mode offers the greatest net gain in system I/O resource savings ever available. It is smart enough to know what fragmentation is a problem and immediately targets and eliminates fragmentation that directly affects system performance.
NEW! Free space consolidation engine. This new and advanced engine swiftly consolidates free space and tightly integrates with Instant Defrag to handle new fragmentation as soon as it is created.
The Titan Defrag Engine™ technology, which runs on volumes of 60GB or greater is the only solution capable of handling volumes of many terabytes and millions of files. Titan Defrag Engine takes only hours to defragment volumes of a few terabytes where other methods take days, if they can function at all. Exclusive to Diskeeper EnterpriseServer, the Titan Defrag Engine is the only technology that can defragment volumes of 10-20+ terabytes.
Terabyte Volume Engine® technology. The only defrag technology with the necessary horsepower to eliminate the rapid fragmentation build-up occurring in high-traffic system volumes handling millions of files.
I-FAAST® (Intelligent File Access Acceleration Sequencing Technology) improves file access and creation on an average of 10-20% beyond the benefits gained with defragmentation alone, by optimizing placement of your most frequently accessed data.
