New Condusiv Diskeeper 16 Adds Miles to Existing Windows Servers and Storage

Condusiv Technologies, today, added new touches to its Diskeeper defragging software to help IT make the most of existing servers, storage and PCs. The new Diskeeper 16 has been updated with DRAM caching that replaces traditional defragmentation and helps improve performance for corporate and enterprise applications such as Microsoft SQL Server databases.

Instead of "defragging," Diskeeper 16 works to ensure large, clean, contiguous data writes from Windows, so fragmentation is no longer an issue for HDDs or SSDs. The company says this eliminates the "death by a thousand cuts" scenario of small, tiny data writes that inflates I/Os per second, robs throughput and shortens the lifespan of HDDs and SSDs.

By improving performance of existing servers and storage with HDDs and SSDs, Diskeeper 16 helps IT postpone the purchase of new systems and upgrades to flash.

Diskeeper 16 improves Windows system performance with new dynamic memory caching, which uses idle DRAM to serve hot data reads without causing memory starvation or resource contention.

Diskeeper has been in the automatic disk defragmenting space since 1986 with over 100 million licenses sold. But with the continued frustration of Windows systems becoming progressively slower over time, Condusiv recognized the need for a comprehensive storage performance tool.

The software is available in professional and server editions:

  • Diskeeper 16 Professional for Endpoints for corporate laptops and desktops. The company says the latest PCMark benchmarking tests demonstrate that Diskeeper 16 increases the performance of Windows 10 PCs by 73 percent in the Microsoft Office Productivity Suite tests, launches common applications 93 percent faster and boosts the Storage Bandwidth test by 31 percent with a mere 4GB of idle, unused DRAM leveraged for cache.
  • Diskeeper 16 Server to improve performance of physical server system performance of I/O intensive applications such as SQL Server.
The new software comes with a 90-day, money-back guarantee.   A free 30-day software trial download is available at Diskeeper 16 is also available immediately from Condusiv and its network of resellers and solution providers.
