Today Microsoft announced (old link https://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2007/may07/05-15WHSNewHardwarePR.mspx) Diskeeper’s planned support for Windows Home Server. Windows Home Server will help families with multiple PCs easily centralize, share and protect their digital pictures, music, documents and videos. It simplifies a family’s life, connects their digital devices and experiences, and will grow with their needs. “We are pleased to work with Diskeeper to help provide maximum system performance and reliability possible to Windows Home Server customers,” said Steven VanRoekel, director of Windows Server Solutions at Microsoft. “Diskeeper has worked with Microsoft since Windows NT. It’s great to see them extend their expertise to our new platform for the home.” Diskeeper Corp is one of the orginal 8 software companies to support Microsoft’s new consumer-oriented server system. As a “headless” operating system, the automatic, hands-off design of Diskeeper will be a big asset to maintaining optimum performance on a system that is sure to store large quantities of data. If you are beta testing Windows Home Server today, you can trial Diskeeper Server for the time being. An official Diskeeper release at a consumer-friendly price will be available in the near future. I’ll post a release announcement on the blog when that is available.
