Diskeeper 2008 HomeServer - Keep Your Disks Running at Top Speed

Page content

Introduction

Diskeeper 2008 HomeServer is designed to keep up with monster hard drives of 500GB, 750GB, and even 1TB which are becoming fairly common. Applications and data increasingly need that kind of storage capacity, especially in this age of digital media (music, podcasts, and so on). Digital photos don’t make the heavy demands on storage that video and audio do, but they make up for it in sheer volume. Add to that the various members of your family who all want to share these interesting data files with each other and friends plus the everyday documents and spreadsheets you use. With all that demand on storage you’ll find you need the efficient management of resources found in products like Windows Home Server (WHS).

Diskeeper 2008 HomeServer integrates easily with the WHS and keeps the central networked storage on a home network humming along smoothly. Typically, these audio/video files that require data streamed in real-time need to have the disks serving up data without delays. However, as they are used more and more, these storage devices get fragmented and can introduce delays in their access.That shows up in slowing down performance.

It would be really nice to have defragmentation accomplished transparently while keeping the data transfer to and from storage devices tuned up to optimal levels. Diskeeper 2008 HomeServer does just that. Significant performance improvements can be expected.
