New Diskeeper 9.0 Improves Backup Performance


BURBANK, CA -- 12/23/2004 -- Executive Software® has announced the release of a new white paper that documents the elimination of excessive wait time for backup by using its new Diskeeper® 9.0, the most popular defragmentation utility for Windows. Executive Software has found that the time required to back up data from a typical hard drive volume can be decreased, and the backup data transfer rate increased, by defragmenting the volume prior to backup.

This study shows improvements in backup times up to 67%, which is less than one-third of the time for the fragmented case. Similarly, backup data transfer rates increased by as much as 190% over that for the fragmented state -- nearly 3 times faster.

With continued expansion of organizational storage allocation requirements, the time required for file-based data backup also continues to increase, yet the time allotted for this data backup remains constant, exposing a critical issue. Though backup software vendors continue making advancements in technology to speed up the process, disk fragmentation will continue to remain an unresolved issue that must be addressed on the file system level to solve this bottleneck.

According to Michael Materie, Diskeeper Product Manager, “One element that even System Administrators with the largest of IT budgets are confounded to add to their programs is more time. Diskeeper’s industry-leading combination of fast defragmentation and resource-friendly processing is the most cost-effective and-time saving solution in a business’ files backup strategy.”

Diskeeper 9.0 is now available for sale and can be purchased through your favorite reseller. More information on Diskeeper 9.0 is available at The white paper is available at: ion.pdf
