AutoPilot

Put Your NT/2000 System On STEROIDS!

Are your users complaining about slow response times?

No budget for a hardware upgrade?

Having performance problems on your Exchange Servers?

 

AutoPilot® is a Breakthrough Automatic Win NT/2000 Performance Tuner!

 

Instant results
F
or instance, we have seen busy Exchange Servers' performance go up to 40 percent.

 

Product Features
There are only three categories of software based performance enhancement tools: disk-related utilities like defraggers, memory- related like caching/RAM disks and third are automated tuning tools.

AutoPilot® is the first automated tuner for NT/2000. And it is a great solution for busy systems! Tuners are basically 'expert systems' that can make intelligent and instant decisions to improve performance.

AutoPilot® is being developed by people that come from a supercomputer background and are trained to squeeze the last cycle out of systems. AutoPilot® is an excellent example of a highly sophisticated and advanced neural network that is able to look at the hardware, NT/2000 and the applications running. Then AutoPilot® improves performance in real-time. We also have found that users tell us their systems run more stable.

Ever wondered why NT/2000 systems does not scale like Unix/Risc? Well, successful Unix platforms have hard- and software come from one and the same vendor. In other words, the different flavors of Unix are optimized for their specific hardware. In the case of Microsoft and Intel, it's not that easy. NT/2000 and the Intel Chips are not aware of each other. In short, Microsoft and Intel cannot optimize their respective platforms for each other!

It took a third party like AutoPilot® to get these two together. AutoPilot® looks directly into the Pentium chip and into NT/2000, and matches the two up better than any of them can individually. The results can be pretty good. But pictures say more than words. Have a look at this industry benchmark, this was run on a 4-way SMP P6 with 256Meg RAM. Red is the baseline, blue is tuned with AutoPilot®. With 44 clients performance is TWICE as fast.

"Continuing improvements in performance and reliability are key areas of interest for customers. Autopilot® delivers a solution that strives to improve horsepower and throughput by alleviating bottlenecks." said Bob O'Brien lead product manager, BackOffice, Microsoft Corp.

 

Product Benefits

Increased performance and scalability
More throughput at a fraction of the cost of any other performance upgrade
Effortless. 'Install and forget'
Extends the life of your hardware investment
Works as well on a single CPU NT Workstation as on SMP machines
Plug and Play - No modifications required - No patches, no changes in hardware or applications either. AutoPilot® comes in two flavors, one for NT and one for W2K. On both platforms it will squeeze maximum power out of the combination of the hardware, applications and the OS. No more time wasted with painful and time consuming baselining and tinkering with parameters. With AutoPilot® on your systems you will be SURE that you get the maximum out of that box.
