 More on MLtek and Other Products Currently Being Developed

MLtek is a company located in the United Kingdom. They create and produce software that better handles problems with IT infrastructure and they do these in unique ways. For example, their best-selling product ArchiverFS is unlike any other archiving software on the market today. It is unique because it does not store your files in a database. Rather they use a share the user creates anywhere on their network.

Benefits

The use of NTFS from beginning to end is what makes their product so much faster, more reliable and offers scalability that is huge. NTFS permissions are also exactly maintained on your folders and files after processing (unlike most database centered products). And you get all the features that you would expect and need in this type of software. This includes the use of shortcuts that are able to be left so users are able to easily recall files without needing help from the IT staff, and since there is no database to store information in, it is a very cost-effective system to use.

Cloud storage

You can even move files over a WAN to a cloud service such as:

  • AWS
  • Azure
  • Google Cloud

This all adds up to a program offering massive scalability at a great price. Customers using this program come from an assortment of background including multi-nationals to local governments, health officials, educational institutions and everything in between. This program not only helps you make the most of your current tier storage, but it can also help with compliance of regulations such as Data Protection as well as the new EU based GDPR requirements.

But this is not the only program that this company has developed. You can click on this link to find out about their other products here but I will still explain them to you.

Process Controller

In Windows, the Process Controller gives the user the ability to specify RAM, CPU and IO priorities for running any windows process. This Process Controller program allows the user to control the processes that are running on your systems. It allows the user to control how the processor time is distributed among all processes that are running – the controller in Windows does not do this. By using this program, the user can set automatically the priorities or processes to run and have them continue in-between reboots as well as process restarts, making the system much more responsive for the user. This is an invaluable tool for Citrix as well as Terminal Server environments.

IP Spider

IP Spider is this company’s new network product for monitoring routes. It performs something that is completely unique in the area of monitoring. Rather than focusing on endpoints, this program is developed to monitor the network routes from end to end.

How this works

The user can add hundreds of “IP addresses” and this IP Spider program will monitor these routes to and from them, notifying the user about any lost connectivity as well as diagnosing precisely where the problem is. IP Spider uses a patented learning engine that recognizes good as well as bad routes and then diagnose where lost connectivity has occurred. This includes lost connectivity down VP tunnels, on the internet, etc.

Beta testing

Several years ago, the company made the decision to stop the development of this product as there were now free options available that offer the same functionality. But recently after revisiting this decision and taking another look at the segment, they made the decision that now is the time to bring this program back, but with support for MS Exchange server as well as file systems. Work began again on CI Search at the end of 2019, and they plan and hope to have a beta release ready for testing by the summer of 2020.

CI Search

Back in 2000, this company developed a search product for content indexing – it was called CI Search. It uses Microsoft’s indexing service and runs on a single central server, and then reaches out to index all content on one or more files servers. It offers end users a single form that is web-based to use to carry out searches of the entire system in only fractions of a second.

Beta release soon
