A new era begins tomorrow, as we release a new family of products that we believe represents the broadest and most comprehensive offering ever by a disk defragmentation provider. With this launch, users can now ensure maximum performance and availability across their Windows environments -- PCs and laptops, servers, VMware workstation and servers, Exchange servers and even Windows Home Server systems -- enterprises, small- and medium-sized businesses, and home consumers.
With this launch, we address the requests and needs of thousands of our users and have enhanced and improved many aspects of the product, and added new products or PerfectDisk components. To be released tomorrow:
- PerfectDisk 2008 Professional
- PerfectDisk 2008 Server
- PerfectDisk 2008 for VMware Workstation
- PerfectDisk 2008 for VMware Server
- PerfectDisk 2008 for Exchange
- PerfectDisk 2008 for Windows Home Server
From the land of Hollywood, we've heard that the new demands of the 21st century demand defragmentation programs run continuously. As I've pointed out here before, that's really a coverup for the lack of being able to completely defragment all files and completely consolidate free space in a single pass. And that's what some of the world's largest companies have told us -- their environments demand the flexibility to schedule when "always-on" defragmenting is not an option. But just to make sure, you can have it your way - whatever that way is -- as we introduce StealthPatrol unattended background disk defragmentation. Combine this with our exclusive AutoPilot Scheduling, with flexible scheduling options according to your specific requirements, and you have the most complete, flexible and automated disk defragmentation software available -- and you maintain complete control.
