Diskeeper now certified for Hyper-V

If you are virtualizing with WIndows Server 2008 and Hyper-V, you can now add Diskeeper to the very short list of products that support Hyper-V, according to a press release shown on Market Watch. This is good news for those virtualizing. Here is the text of the release, if you don’t want to link over:
BURBANK, Calif., Aug 12, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Diskeeper Corporation today announced that its flagship Diskeeper(C) 2008 automatic defragmenter achieved Certified for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V status from Microsoft. Diskeeper 2008 is one of the first three applications, out of 175 applications currently certified for Windows Server 2008, to earn the Hyper V designation.
"Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V is an excellent option for corporations looking to save power and space, ease provisioning efforts and achieve full hardware utilization through virtualization. We’ve been an innovative early adopter, worked closely with Microsoft’s developers since the advent of Windows NT and were pleased to do so as well with Hyper-V," said Michael Materie, Diskeeper product manager at Diskeeper Corp.
All systems suffer from file fragmentation. Servers suffer even more so due to their heavy multi-user traffic. And virtual servers yet further since fragmentation takes place on three separate levels–the virtual, the physical disk and the mapping in between them. Without a professional grade defragmenter designed to address the virtual issues, server performance is going to crawl to a slow.
Thanks to recent developments in transparent processing technology (known as InvisiTasking(R), defragmentation of such systems with Diskeeper 2008 has now become a fully automated process. This speeds up server response time, ensures the level of virtual disk performance is optimal and saves time by taking the guesswork out of defragmenting. With this new approach, Diskeeper 2008 has become an indispensable tool to the system administrator.
"After independent testing, we found that Diskeeper’s automatic defragmenter not only exploits Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V capabilities but also is designed to meet mission-critical expectations in a virtualized environment," said Eric Jewett, Windows Server Marketing group product manager at Microsoft.

I am definitely a fan of Diskeeper and need to get a copy for my new desktop, which is running Windows Server 2008. The built in defragger for Windows is just not good enough. While it does sometimes require a boot time defrag to get things back to great shape, I have found that Diskeeper is up to the task. Congratulations guys for taking it to the next step.
Peace and Grace,
