Paragon Software Debuts Enhanced Backup Solution for Mid-sized Businesses
Paragon Software Group, a maker of data security and storage management products for PCs, servers and networks, has brought to market a new backup solution for disaster recovery and system migration that supports both physical and virtual settings.
The solution, dubbed Drive Backup 10 Server Edition, is aimed at customers in the mid-sized business market. The package is priced at $499.
Tom Fedro, Paragon president, said that Paragon's channel partners will benefit from the new solution.
"Our resellers have been telling us that they need an affordable, all-inclusive solution for their larger corporate customers, and Drive Backup 10 Server Edition fits the bill perfectly," said Fedro.
The company expects the new product will expand the vendor's reach beyond its traditional focus on the SMB segment to larger businesses.
"Historically, Paragon Software has been very strong in the SMB space," Fedro said.
"The debut of Drive Backup 10 Server Edition takes us to the next level as our software can now scale to larger customers, with more advanced features and a lower price point than competing offerings."
The Drive Backup 10 Server Edition is intended to reduce recovery times and costs for migrating or deploying systems while providing IT managers with flexibility in managing system continuity.
The solution includes Paragon's Adaptive Restore, which allows users to migrate a Windows-based system to a different hardware platform, either physical or virtual. It also features expanded backup capabilities, improved remote management, a system boot corrector, the ability to create and manage custom scripts, virtual operations to preview tasks and a file transfer wizard.
Paragon said that the product simplifies migration to a virtual environment by creating a duplicate image of the live disk drives on servers or workstations, including the operating system, files, programs, updates and databases.
