Raxco is Microsoft Gold Partner (again) for 2011

We know there are options out there to defrag a computer other than PerfectDisk. Now, when you just want to defrag a file (or files) rather than an entire drive, or defrag metadata, or defrag Exchange, or defrag SQL, there are fewer options. If you want to defrag system files or effectively defrag Windows 7, the options narrow again. Perform intelligent vSphere defrag and Hyper-V defrag to efficiently improve vSphere performance and Hyper-V performance? Your choices really narrow.

Yes, for the best disk defrag you can get, it’s not quite as easy as some would want you to believe. For your hard disk…your data, your pictures, your movies, your work, your life, you can be cavalier — or careful. And if you need a little help and guidance along the way, not many are going to answer the phone, talk to you and help you.

This is some of the thought process and mentality we have here as we do the necessary work — research, testing, multiple environments, new technology review and more to ensure we deliver the best defrag tool possible.

We recently received notification from Microsoft that, for the 12 consecutive year, we are a Microsoft Gold Partner for 2011. There are various tasks we need to do to receive this status from Microsoft. Most significantly, we put our defrag and performance applications through Microsoft’s certification process. This takes time, money and resources but is well worth it, as it ensures our products meet Microsoft’s highest standards for execution and compatibility with various Windows operating systems. There are multiple tests Microsoft puts the applications through to ensure proper behavior and ensure proper user and operating system interaction. All of this is important for home consumers as well as businesses and large enterprises. It does not supplant an individual’s or an organization’s other due diligence and testing, of course. But it is one piece of the entire puzzle and provides some level of comfort and assurance of quality.

So, we are pleased to be recognized again by Microsoft. More importantly, this means our customers are assured of software that has been tested and certified by Microsoft in its labs.

Here’s an excerpt of the letter we received from Microsoft:

Dear Raxco,
