We @ Tweakbytes.com are very pleased to announce our Diskeeper 16 Professional New Year 2018 Giveaway We again would like to thank Condusiv Technologies for their kind generosity for sponsoring the licenses for this giveaway. Overview Condusiv Technologies Diskeeper is the pre-emptive solution to the problem of fragmentation. Imagine a system that doesn't fragment data on the hard disk and requires no I/Os to handle fragmentation. Clean disks enables servers, workstation and laptops to operate at optimum speed, reliability and efficiency over time. Disks that are uncluttered by fragmentation can last years longer due to reduced drive wear, easing the strain on tight IT budgets and reducing total cost of ownership for hardware investments. Diskeeper has been the undisputed leader in keeping Windows systems running like new. Now, the introduction of Diskeeper 16 with DRAM caching builds on the powerful legacy of Diskeeper with this release that goes well beyond just keeping Windows systems running like new but actually guarantees to fix your worst performing physical servers or Windows PCs with faster than new performance or your money back for 90 days --no questions asked as assured by Condusiv Technologies! Diskeeper 16 with DRAM Caching Diskeeper 16's newest patented engine ensures large, clean, contiguous writes from Windows so fragmentation is no longer an issue for HDDs or SSDs. This eliminates the "death by a thousand cuts" scenario of small, tiny writes that inflates I/Os per second, robs throughput, and shortens the lifespan of HDDs and SSDs alike. Diskeeper 16 delivers dramatic improvements to Windows system performance with the new addition of dynamic memory caching --using idle DRAM to serve hot reads without creating an issue of memory starvation or resource contention. Diskeeper 16 - Now with RAM caching to speed up Windows computers Condusiv I/O reduction Software Overview Diskeeper 16 with Write and Read Optimizations Conventional/typical defragmentation utilities consume resources to operate and deal with fragmentation only after performance penalty has been incurred. Diskeeper 16's proactive solution solves the problem in real-time while running transparently in the background, eliminating fragmentation issues from occurring on HDDs, SSDs and SAN storage systems while also eliminating the IOPS inflation from many small writes and reads. Why Windows Built-in Defrag is Not Good Enough Why Fragmentation is Still a Problem with SSDs The real genius in Diskeeper's newest engine is that nothing has to be allocated for cache. Diskeeper dynamically uses only what is idle and available at any given moment and throttles according to the need of the application. If memory is "under-provisioned" and the application asks for more memory, the caching engine throttles back entirely. However, with as little as 3GB of available DRAM, latency is reduced by an average of 40% on production workloads. The net effect of both eliminated fragmentation and DRAM caching offloads a minimum of 30% of the I/O traffic on most workloads on commonly configured systems. Diskeeper has been developed to be transparent, "install-set-and-forget" software that operates with near zero overhead as a lightweight file system driver. Space Reclamation with Diskeeper: How It Works DISKEEPER 16 PRO FEATURES IntelliWrite® write I/O optimization technology prevents files from being fractured and broken apart into pieces, with each piece requiring its own I/O operation before being written to disk or SSD in a non-sequential manner. IntelliMemory® read I/O optimization technology intelligently caches active data from read requests using idle memory. InvisiTasking® intelligent monitoring technology allows all “background” operations within the system to run with near-zero resource impact on current activities. Benefit Reporting dashboard displays the dashboard reporting shows the actual "time saved" benefit on every system so the value is easily quantifiable and never in question. It also fragments eliminated and what that means to percentage of write and read I/O reduction and how much I/O time was saved on that system due to writing and reading files in sequential state as opposed to fragmented state. Also shows the percentage of all read traffic that is cached from the idle DRAM and what that means to time saved by serving reads from DRAM instead of the underlying storage device. See displays for free space consolidated and total I/Os removed from both read and write optimization and total time saved for any given period of time. I/O Performance Monitoring reveals key performance metrics like IOPS, throughput and latency. It reveals the amount of workloads processed on the local system for any given time period. It also provides very important memory usage information like the total physical memory and minimum/maximum/average of available memory and how much of that was used for cache. This helps administrators fine tune memory allocations to get the most from the IntelliMemory DRAM caching engine. If there is no sufficient available DRAM, users are not getting the best performance possible from Diskeeper. Analytics provides an hour-by-hour view form any time period to understand what is exactly is happening on the local system related to key metrics like workloads, read/write percentage, IOPS, throughput, I/O response time and benefits like write I/O reduction from IntelliWrite and read I/O reduction from IntelliMemory. Instant Defrag™ technology has been enhanced to monitor volumes to resolve critically fragmented files in real-time that are known to cause performance problems, making it SAN-friendly. This feature is turned off in the event of solid-state drives. HyperBoot® File Access Technology strategically moves files into a sequential order that minimizes the number of I/O request during the boot process. HyperFast® SSD Optimizer Technology produces faster performance in solid-state drives running on Microsoft operating systems. The HyperFast feature includes TRIM functionality and is enabled only if a solid-state drive is recognized. Terabyte Volume Engine® Technology engineered to rapidly defragment volumes with hundreds of thousands of files. Efficient Mode in addition to an extensive defrag mode, Efficient Mode offers the greatest net gain in system I/O resource savings ever available. It immediately targets and eliminates only fragmentation that directly affects system performance that is on the system before Diskeeper was installed since Diskeeper automatically prevents any new fragmentation after installation. Free Space Consolidation Engine swiftly consolidates free space and tightly integrates with Instant Defrag to handle new fragmentation as soon as it is created. Network Management Support ensures easy management of Diskeeper 16 settings and functionality across the network through the Diskeeper 16 Administrator edition or Group Policy. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS 250MB of available hard drive space. IntelliMemory caching requires a minimum of 3GB of memory on the system and at least 1.5GB of idle, available memory before caching will initiate.
