DiskTrix Inc is a small software company based in South Carolina. It is owned and operated by Robert Ferraro.
Robert is also founder and owner of PC Aviator Inc (www.pcaviator.com) and also the creator of the MegaSceneryEarth (www.megasceneryearth.com) series of scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator based flight simulations.
UltimateDefrag was first released in 2007 and has been continuously developed and refined for the past 15 years to become the software it is now. When Robert was seeking for ways to improve the performance of resource-intensive photoscenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator, he created UltimateDefrag. Robert knew what needed to be done with the file system to improve the scenery's performance, but there was no solution on the market at the time, and there still isn't, that would optimize the file layout of files on hard drives. As a result, Robert set out to develop software that could optimize the entire file system rather than simply defragment files. (see Defrag 101)
From there, general PC users, gamers, and businesses have purchased and utilized UltimateDefrag to improve the performance of classic platter-based hard drives, which are still the primary storage medium for data on PCs and networks around the world. Traditional platter based hard drives have a low cost per Mb or Gb compared to pricey SSDs, thus they will be around for a long time to come as they expand in size to the point where even 6 to 8 Tb drives are commonly available as the world's data storage needs grow tremendously.
