"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." – Arthur C. Clarke
That "magic" is what our advertising team likes to embellish when describing InvisiTasking – please forgive them their marketing indulgences. 🙂
Speaking of Arthur C. Clarke, many know he was actively involved in scientific research projects such as SETI. For those of you running [email protected] or similar ([email protected], GIMPS, etc…) the new enhancements in InvisiTasking, included in Diskeeper 2009, allow it to work seamlessly with these idle-resource volunteer computing applications. See an earlier blog for some background. No adjustments, with either program, are now needed to run these two types of programs together. You can volunteer your unused PC resources for a good cause here.
While InvisiTasking performed extremely well on very busy servers, see this white paper, the improvements to InvisiTasking now allow defragmentation on even the most heavily used 24/7/365 server systems.
In a nutshell, InvisiTasking has been enhanced to leverage those idle resources more effectively, while still maintaining that invisibility that has revolutionized defragmentation technology.
