Increasing that Ever-Precious Response Time

It’s interesting that “response time” becomes such an important factor when it comes to machinery. Perhaps it’s because we’re constantly looking for that speed that, simply as humans, we could never achieve. We could never step off a line and go from zero to sixty in four seconds–hence high-performance cars are constantly tweaked to do so. Similarly, an office clerk could never retrieve a client file in less than a second–and we are constantly fiddling with our computers to shave off any extra time.

In addition to the technological leaps that hardware has gone through to achieve such dizzying speeds, there have also been great advances in the optimization of software to get it to perform faster. And then there are also highly sophisticated developments in defrag technology, such as those made by Diskeeper Corporation.

One such development is Diskeeper Corporation’s proprietary I-FAAST (Intelligent File Access Sequencing Technology) feature, available exclusively in select editions of the famous Diskeeper defragmenter. I-FAAST actually accelerates access to most-used files, beyond that of systems when they were new. Actively learning about each system’s disk performance and file access patterns, I-FAAST then uses this data to accelerate file access where it’s most needed. It automatically adapts itself to changing usage patterns and works seamlessly as part of the background defrag process.

“I-FAAST is a fantastic tool in making my life easier,” said Brian Kirston of Bonita Springs, Florida. “Using Diskeeper has always assisted me in the maintenance of my computer; therefore my work is more efficient.”

“My own system is running much faster now than without Diskeeper Pro Premier, which includes the I-FAAST feature,” agreed Mark Bergkvist of PC Choice, a Value Added Reseller in West Chester, Pennsylvania. “With Diskeeper I am able to accomplish more things in a day than I was without it. Files are found, opened and saved much quicker and easier. Getting my work done quicker makes me a much more productive person.”

With its proprietary InvisiTasking technology, Diskeeper’s operations, including I-FAAST, are performed in the background, utilizing only otherwise-idle resources. Scheduling is never required, there is never a negative performance hit from defrag activities, and response time is always maximized.

So in addition to fast hardware and the ultimate in defragmentation, I-FAAST brings yet another tool to increasing that ever-important response time.
