As the creator of the Diskeeper defragmentation and fragmentation prevention software and the founder of Condusiv Technologies Corporation (formerly Diskeeper Corporation), Craig Jensen is an accomplished computer programmer, entrepreneur and author. Created in 1986, Diskeeper is a real time fragmentation solution that has sold over fifty million licenses worldwide. As the chairman of Condusiv Technologies, Craig Jensen continues efforts to improve PC application performance and minimize the effects of disk fragmentation.

Many PC owners may be unaware of what fragmentation actually is, and why defragmentation is important. Disk fragmentation is a natural occurrence that takes place when a file is divided up into pieces in order to fit on the disk. This effect can build up over time since files are constantly being written and deleted, causing slow system speed, random crashes, freezing and many other issues.

Defragmentation is important because it cleans up a PC by finding all the pieces of files and putting them back together. It can be compared to regular house cleaning and is important for the overall health of a PC.

Craig Jensen is a computer programmer who founded Executive Software, later called Diskeeper and now Condusiv Technologies, in 1981. In 1986, Craig Jensen invented Diskeeper, a defragmentation software that functions to make Windows computers work better. Condusiv Technologies now provides several programming products and services to address common software issues in today’s tech world.

In a recent survey, Condusiv Technologies found that of 2,654 IT professionals across Europe and North America, 77% had issues with their I/O since virtualizing. Virtualizing means creating a simulation or virtual version of something, and I/O is input/output, or the relationship between the product and the people using it.

When the I/O performance is too slow, the company is dealing with an I/O bottleneck. Condusiv’s V-locity helps to speed up systems by 50% to 300% by reducing inefficiencies that can slow down performance. This may be the solution for businesses facing the I/O bottleneck issues that arise from virtualizing.
