Keep Windows Servers Running Like New

For Windows® physical servers with local or direct-attached storage (DAS), Diskeeper® 12 Server is an ideal entry-level performance solution. Diskeeper Server proactively prevents performance-robbing fragmentation from occurring to keep servers running like new. Diskeeper® Server’s patented, proactive IntelliWrite® technology prevents split I/Os from being created at the time files are written—reducing the amount of I/O pushed through the server and storage, and resulting in increased productivity and lower costs by extending the useful life of existing hardware.

Proactive and Efficient Server Performance Optimization Where typical defragmentation utilities consume resources to operate and deal with fragmentation only after the performance penalty has already been incurred, Diskeeper is the only proactive solution that solves the problem in real-time while running transparently in the background. Without Diskeeper, files are scattered around a volume instead of written in one place. Diskeeper’s IntelliWrite optimizes writes and subsequent reads by writing data sequentially, reducing seek time and the number of I/Os required to write a file or access it. Keep your Windows servers running like new with Diskeeper Server: Proactively eliminates performance-robbing fragmentation Delivers accelerated I/O performance for Windows servers in local and direct-attached storage (DAS) environments Improves business productivity by ensuring applications run at peak performance Easily deploys across the network via a central management console Operates with true “Set It and Forget It” functionality Extends the life of Windows servers Continuously optimizes without hampering system resources

Diskeeper Server Features Diskeeper’s intelligent resource monitoring, InvisiTasking®, ensures all optimization occurs without hampering system resources, so servers can operate at full production while Diskeeper runs in the background. InvisiTasking monitors resource consumption on a Windows system (disk, memory, network and CPU usage) and uses only resources that are otherwise idle, so Diskeeper runs invisibly with no intrusion on system resources. InvisiTasking monitors volumes for files that are impacting performance and deploys the Instant Defrag™ engine to consolidate the few remaining fragments that were not eliminated by IntelliWrite. With Diskeeper Server, optimization is proactive, continuous and seamless. For IT professionals who need to deploy Diskeeper across multiple servers, the Diskeeper Administration console allows for seamless network deployment. For Windows servers, Diskeeper is the only highly efficient and proactive software for maximum performance—making it the #1 solution for keeping Windows servers running like new. Diskeeper Server contains a toolkit of proactive and highly-efficient technologies: IntelliWrite® I/O Optimization Technology Automatically prevents split I/Os from being generated when a file is typically broken into pieces before write. InvisiTasking® Intelligent Monitoring Technology Allows all background operations within the system to run with zero resource impact on current activities. Instant Defrag™ Engine Immediately defrags newly fragmented files before they can slow performance. Instant Defrag is an engine that consolidates any fragments that were not prevented by IntelliWrite, instantaneously without the need to analyze the drive. Disk Health Monitoring Monitors SMART disk data, checks for critical file system problems, warns of critical problems or an imminent disk failure, generates alerts by e-mail or text messages for 24/7 monitoring. System Monitoring Monitors system environment activities and provides a summary of the statistical data gathered for system performance monitoring. Titan Defrag Engine™ Technology Handles volumes of many terabytes and millions of files. Titan Defrag Engine (TDE) takes only hours to defragment volumes of a few terabytes where other methods take days. TDE is the only technology that can defragment volumes of multi terabytes. 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. Free Space Consolidation Engine Swiftly consolidates free space and tightly integrates with Instant Defrag to handle new fragmentation as soon as it is created. Performance Map® Technology Performance Map gives a quick "at-a-glance" indication of file access performance for each volume. Enhanced Analysis Reports Rich reporting functionality that displays health and performance gains for the system. Reports include: Fragmentation Analysis, Read and Write Access Time Improvement, File and Free Space Performance, and Disk Access I/Os Saved. BOOT-TIME MODE Safely performs Microsoft® recommended defragmentation of critical system files. Network Management Support Easily manage Diskeeper settings and functionality across the network through the Diskeeper Administrator edition or Group Policy.

Hardware Support
Diskeeper Server Edition runs on Windows Server 2003 Web, Windows Server 2003 Standard (x86/ x64), Windows Server 2003 Enterprise (x86/x64), Windows 2003 Datacenter Server, Windows 2003 with Server Appliance Kit, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (x86/x64), Windows Server 2008 Datacenter, Windows HPC Server 2008 and Windows Small Business Server 2011 all editions and all Windows Server 2012 editions (including compatible CPUs from other manufacturers).

Resource Requirements
The disk space requirements for Diskeeper depend on several factors. The Diskeeper installation package is about 60 MB. After the installation is complete, Diskeeper occupies about 45 MB of disk space.

Additional Software Requirements
Diskeeper Server requires .NET 4. If .Net 4 is not installed on your system, Diskeeper will attempt to download and install it for you. A reboot may be required due to the .Net installation.

A Note About Firewalls
As a normal part of its operation, the Diskeeper Service (DkService.exe) acts as a Windows service on your system. If you are running a hardware or software firewall, you may see messages indicating Diskeeper Service is trying to act as a Windows service. These messages are expected; you can safely allow these events. This functionality is designed to allow for support for network operations (e.g. Remote Control) via Diskeeper Administrator.
You may also be notified that Diskeeper is trying to access the Internet. It is important to note that Diskeeper does not access the Internet (except when you specifically use the Check for Updates feature or you opt in to send performance data for analysis), but it does use Windows mechanisms that may trigger these alerts from your firewall. Again, these messages are expected and you can safely allow the events. If networkability or automatic update checking is not required, you can safely disable this.
Stop fragmentation-based lags and crashes on Windows server systems in their tracks – even when demand is at its absolute highest! Lower your operating costs and increase your server performance with Diskeeper Server edition.
