Diskeeper® data performance software is the market and technology leader and has been for over a quarter century. In fact, over 90% of all defrag products sold are Diskeeper. It’s on site at more than 90% of all Fortune 1000 companies and over 40 million licenses have been sold. But the product has never stopped being innovated to meet the needs of contemporary business. And Diskeeper 2011 is a new and revolutionary turn of events for any IT manager interested in true efficiency. Why? The answer comes down to a concept: increase efficiency and reduce waste.
Taiichi Ohno, a visionary pioneer in the field of efficiency, defined waste broadly as “any human activity which absorbs resources but creates no value”. This concept, though simple, has had profound repercussions throughout all modern industry. The idea is based on creating a need-driven flow that generates higher effective throughput without the margins of waste typical of industry. Newly released Diskeeper 2011 forwards this spirit of efficiency.
Some legacy habits dictate that defragmentation, (making contiguous files that have been written in pieces and scattered randomly across a disk), be scheduled to occur after hours and without regard to the priority of importance of the files involved. For some, this method is so ingrained that completely obsolete methods of defrag—the freebie built-in for example—have attempted to be used in the corporate environment (which they were never intended for in the first place).
Allowing a system to fragment, is allowing a system to not only absorb resources to do work that has no value, but actually impedes other work from getting done. This is true waste. Worse, attempting to use these antiquated methods will now create human and system resource conflicts and as many IT managers have found they are resource intensive, won’t defrag free space, require administrative time (must be scheduled off production times) and in the end, don’t get the job done anyway.
In contrast, Diskeeper 2011 has evolved the concept of efficiency to maximize system productivity throughput through an entire set of technical innovations:
- Fragmentation prevention through the use of IntelliWrite® technology causes files to be written to disk contiguously up to 85% of the time.
- InvisiTasking® technology ensures zero resource conflicts when defrag is active.
- Instant Defrag™ technology detects and handles immediately the fragmentation of demand-driven files.
- Efficient Mode handles only what is necessary for optimum efficiency.
