I stopped by the Diskeeper booth yesterday to catch up on their latest defragmentation and file recovery products. I spoke with Daylen Farkas, VP of channel and consumer sales, who mentioned that a new version of Undelete--their file recovery and application--will be available soon.
"Undelete 2009 should be available in Q3 2008, and will include a number of new features," says Farkas. "We're adding our invisitasking technology to the Undelete product family, as well as the ability to perform cross-network deletions, all driven by an enhanced user interface."
Farkas also discussed Diskeeper's Intelligent File Access Acceleration Sequencing Technology (I-FAAST), which is available in certain Diskeeper disk defrgamentation products.
"I-FAAST learns about the disk performance and file access of a given system, then relies on this information to speed up file access," says Farkas. "I-FAAST takes usage patterns into account, then incorporates that information into the background defrag processes.
I also asked Farkas about Diskeeper's continued expansion into China, which began with the opening of a new Diskeeper office in Hong Kong last month. Diskeeper already has a distribution network in place in the region, but Farkas says that the new office should help the company build market share and presence in the fast-growing asian market.
