MLtek is a company that creates software to manage several IT problems in ways that are not complicated and are very cost-effective. The first product developed was ArchiverFS. This is a product that works with storage solutions for files that probably won’t be needed anytime soon.
ArchiverFS has just been released in February in version 3.460. This version adds new features and is in the beta testing stage. If there is anyone interested in beta testing this product contact this company for further information.
File server program
ArchiverFS is a file server program that goes about filing older files in an entirely different way. This is not a program that stores files in a database. Rather, MLtek goes about this problem in a very different way. First it uses a share that can be created anywhere on a company’s network.
Using NTFS from start to finish
It uses NTFS from beginning to end and is the major reason while this solution is so much faster, more reliable and is incredible scalable. Files with NTFS permissions are maintained on all folders and files after they have been processed (unlike most database centered products). This program includes shortcuts that can be left behind so that users are able to recall files without needing to call IT and having them find the file for you. This program also doesn’t need a database to store information about processed files so this makes it extremely costs effective to set up and get it running. You can even migrate files over a WAN to any cloud service such as AWS, Azure or Google Cloud.
What to do with older files
Have you ever sat and wondered why there isn’t a simple yet effective way to work with the years and years’ worth of old files that have built up on your life server? Why do all the solutions currently on the market revolve around using a database to deal with what is a file system issue? Therefore, ArchiverFS is different and works at the file system level giving you a structured way to migrate all your unused and old files to 2nd tier storage, without having to store files, pointers to files and even file metadata in a database.
Making the change to this program adds up to giving you a massive scalability at a price that is incredible. MLtek has customers using this program come from an assortment of backgrounds including multi-dollar multi-nationals to local government departments, health authorities, educational institutions plus everything in between. It will help you make the most of your current storage tier. It will also help you with regulatory compliance such as Data Protection and even the new EU based GDPR requirements.
Lots of features
With this program you will get all these features you will love:
- Reporting function.
- Seamless stubs that can be left in place of any old files once they have been moved.
- Numerous choices allow to control these files being migrated – such conditions as file age, file size, file type, etc.
- Ability to compress files only once they have been archived.
And massive scalability, agent free operation and compatibility with many technologies such as de-duplication as well as DFS.
Subscription licenses available
They have had multiple requests to introduce a subscription-based licensing model for this program. Up until now all licenses were perpetual and worked on a ‘buy once use forever’ basis with annual support renewals. This puts the licensing cost being only a fraction of our competitors and the fact that ArchiverFS already represents a value that is amazing; this model has the effect of front loading a lot of the costs. Being able to offer a subscription based alongside the perpetual licenses gives MLtek the ability to provide a way that spreads the initial cost more evenly over years 2 plus.
Getting grip on file system
So, if your company is struggling to find a simple and cost-effective way to get a grip on your sprawling file system, why not have a look at ArchiverFS? It doesn’t matter if your file system is less that 1TB in size or multiple Petabytes, MLtek can help you bring some order to the chaos as well as:
- Save money on backups by reducing how much data is backed up.
- Cuts you restore time in the event of a bad crash or disaster.
- Helps you ensure compliance with the relevant legislation in your region regarding the retention of information e.g. the Data Protection Act in the United Kingdom.

There next developed product is Process Controller. This program lets you take control of the process by using the processing priority of engine already built into Windows to control how processor time is allocated among all running processes. Using this program, the client can automatically set priorities for running processes have them persist between reboots and process restarts and this makes this system far more responsive to the end user.
Currently they are working on IP Spider that allows you to track IP addresses from start to finish. IP Spider is massively multi-threaded high-fidelity network monitoring solutions. It is designed to use by organizations that absolutely must know not only if their external connections are up, but if they are down, why. Even in the most complex environments it is also capable of identifying exactly where the loss of connectivity occurred within seconds down to the exact hop, even if you are routing over the public internet.
They will be offering all beta sites heavy discounts on IP Spider once it goes on general release in 2018.
