Paragon Software releases Hard Disk Manager 15 Preview – a complete data management tool for physical and virtual storage with maximum flexibility for SMBs and enterprises

Test the latest backup technology for 90 days, free of charge now!

  

FREIBURG, Germany,  September 18 , 2014 — Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery, today released a free 90-day trial of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Preview, a complete data management solution with flexible physical and virtual backup formats for businesses. HDM 15 supports the right backup formats for a variety of tasks including archiving or virtualization. Unlike traditional backup methods, HDM 15 supports a wide range of virtual disk formats, making it ideal for use with virtual machines. The Connect VD (Virtual Drive) feature allows IT administrators to set the partitioning and editing of virtual data media in just the same way they would with regular physical hard disks. VD backup features now provide the full set of backup tools, including file complement, incremental backup and others.

  

New major features include:

·         Virtual container replaces the previous backup archive

·         Recovery Media Builder 3.0

·         Easy virtualization

·         MS Hyper-V backup

·         Incremental, differential and file-based backups to virtual containers

  

The new backup technology lets users create backups directly in the form of virtual disks in the format they need (VMDK/VHD/VHDX) and, if necessary, later use the P2V Adjust Assistant feature to adapt backups for use with VMware Workstation or other virtualization software. If you create regular incremental backups, for instance, each of these increments can be used as the basis for a virtual machine at any time. No matter what you’re using – Oracle VirtualBox, Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual PC or VMware Workstation – Hard Disk Manager 15 can handle the virtual disk formats these hypervisors use, and will also create backups directly in the formats you need. In addition, you’ll still have the full range of backup operation functions, including incremental backup, file-based backup, additional file backup, differential backup, and more. If you’re focusing more on archiving and want your backup containers to take up as little storage space as possible, then the Paragon Virtual Hard Disk Format (pVHD) is the right choice for you:  high compression rates and a network-friendly structure allow exceptionally efficient use of storage and speed up backup operations in the network  by up to 10 times.

  

 

Availability:

A free 90-day evaluation of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Preview is available at http://www.paragon-software.com/landing-pages/hdm15-preview/index.html. The commercial version of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 is scheduled for release in fall 2014 and will offer a free 30-day evaluation period.

Paragon Software secures two new major OEM partners for its Universal File System Driver technology

Global Agreements with Kingston Digital Inc. and ZTE Corporation Boost Paragon Software’s OEM Presence in Worldwide Mobile Device Market and Underscore Its Strength and Innovation in Embedded System Driver Technology

 

Irvine, CA, September 9, 2014 –  Paragon Software Group , a leader in data protection and embedded cross-platform file-access technology, today announced it has secured agreements with leading technology manufacturers Kingston Digital Inc. and ZTE Corporation. Paragon’s  Universal File System Driver (UFSD)solutions have been licensed by both companies to fuel mobile product initiatives, allowing them to deliver upon the promise of high performance and interoperability for their customers.

As mobile device usage continues its explosive growth, with a recent study revealing that greater than 50 percent of online time is now spent on mobile platforms, interest in Paragon’s UFSD driver technology is on the rise in the OEM market, according to Tom Fedro, President of Paragon Software Group Corporation.

“Paragon's Universal File System Drivers, including our exFAT and NTFS for Android offerings, play an important role in supporting our tier one OEMs’ efforts in the mobility market by ensuring high performance and complete interoperability with storage media of all kinds,” said Fedro. “We are very excited to have Kingston Digital and ZTE join our long list of OEM clients leveraging Paragon technology to deliver a powerful, uncompromising user experience."
 

ZTE Corporation, a publicly listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has licensed Paragon’s exFAT/NTFS for Android driver solutions for use with select mobile phones that use microSD cards. Paragon’s software enables these Android-based mobile phones to support 64GB, 128GB and larger microSD cards that are formatted to the exFAT or NTFS file system.

 “This capacity boost is critical because, without Paragon UFSD drivers, users would be limited to a maximum of only 32GB of storage per card, missing out on 50 percent or more of valuable storage space to support today’s more data-intensive content, such as video and graphics,” said Fedro.
 

Kingston Digital Inc., the world's largest independent manufacturer of memory products, is leveraging Paragon UFSD technology as part of an innovative new approach to storage for mobile devices. Many mobile products lack support for SD cards or USB drives, so storage options are limited; the Kingston MobileLite Wireless family of media readers fills this market void. These WiFi media streamers incorporate Paragon's embedded exFAT and NTFS for Linux drivers, allowing mobile device owners to free up storage capacity on their devices by easily offloading content to an SDXC flash card or USB drive, which they can access later.

Paragon Software’s Pure Channel Program gains momentum as backup and recovery leader redefines industry’s approach to IT channel strategy

Innovative Channel Program Delivers Record Revenue Growth and Close Ratios of More Than 40 Percent for Participating Resellers and Managed Service Providers

 

Irvine, CA, August 13, 2014 – Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery (BDR), today announced record revenue growthfor the first half of 2014, besting last year’s number by 86 percent for the same period. Due primarily to this year’s launch of the company’s new Pure Channel partner program, this growth is being driven by the significant increase in the number of new opportunities registered by partners. In addition, the channel partners, resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) participating in Pure Channel are experiencing close ratios of well over 40 percent on the almost 500 new customer opportunities passed on to them through the program.

 

Focused on helping resellers simplify sales cycles and achieve profitable growth, Pure Channel represents a major overhaul to the company’s previous channel program. It stands out in the market because it eliminates the need for traditional revenue commitments, certifications and contracts. The program is built around Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR), the company’s industry-leading, image-based BDR product. PPR is optimized for small and midsize business and mid-enterprise markets and designed for physical, virtual and hybrid server environments.

 

"With Pure Channel, our goal is simple: to help our resellers and MSPs grow their businesses profitably. We’ve made it our commitment to do everything we can to be the most effective vendor on their line cards; the growth and opportunities we’ve delivered to date through the program this year – far outpacing the results of 2013 – are just the beginning," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group Corp.

 

Paragon’s “Pure Profit” Strategy Appeals to the Channel

Pure Channel features a high-impact “Pure Profit” strategy grounded in what Paragon calls “POP” (Paragon Opportunity Protection), which eliminates minimum revenue and tech training requirements,

guarantees 30 percent margin protection and streamlines sales cycles with the industry’s fastest online deal registration and transaction processes. In addition, unlike traditional, multi-tiered partner programs, Pure Channel allows resellers and MSPs to opt into one of only two Pure Channel partner levels: Pure Platinum or Pure Gold.

 

Pure Channel offers great value to Paragon resellers, according to Ron Belensky, Corporate Sales Trainer and Coach, MicroAge. “Pure Channel not only sets up our sales team for success, but also offers a refreshing and streamlined alternative to traditional BDR partner programs,” said Belensky. “Paragon has gone above and beyond to support our sales efforts by being easy to do business with and demonstrating their commitment to helping us reach our goals.”

 

Bob Ballard, President of Logisoft Computer Products, LLC, agrees.“With Paragon Software’s new Pure Channel program, it’s never been easier to register opportunities, get 30 percent protected margins and be more profitable selling data protection," said Ballard.

 

As part of the Pure Channel program, the company offers monthly webinars to drive partner enablement, with topics ranging from product and sales training to technical tips, business building, customer experience and more. Pure Channel also includes a number of additional go-to-market enhancements including leads, spiffs and dedicated technical support managers for select partners.

 

Award-Winning BDR Solution

In July, Paragon announced that PPR earned a 9.83 out of 10 points possible in TopTenReview’s 2014 ranking of Best Server Backup Software. In addition, PPR tied with a leading global brand to capture the top spot in the professional support category, while also earning the highest possible ratings across three other server backup software categories including recovery and restoration, management tools and resource management.

Paragon Software announces new Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14 Hyper-V Preview for SMBs and enterprises


FREIBURG, Germany , June 23, 2014 — Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection and backup and disaster recovery, today announced the launch of free Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14 Hyper-V Preview for IT administrators of small and medium-size businesses seeking a reliable tool to handle the full IT management cycle, including protection of virtual machines hosted by Microsoft Hyper-V. Unlike traditional backup tools, designed to work with physical machines, Paragon’s solution can operate at the virtualization layer, employing MS VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to provide agentless backup and restore of any guest machine of Hyper-V. Paragon’s tool does not require an agent on a target virtual machine to create its point-in-time copy, including its configuration, operating system, apps, etc. This approach significantly enhances the backup performance, while minimizing the load on target machines and the hypervisor during the process. Besides, there is no need to provide credentials for every guest to do backups.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14 Hyper-V Preview protects entire virtual machines (online or offline) registered on a local Hyper-V host, where the product is installed. Hyper-V guest machines can be backed up directly to pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive), VMDK, VHD, or VHDX virtual containers. If using VHD or VHDX as the target backup format, the user can attach the resulting backup image to an existing virtual machine of Hyper-V and the operating system will be launched successfully. If using pVHD, there will be available additional options, like high-level compression, encryption, or image splitting. Resulting virtual containers can be stored on a local disk (mounted/unmounted), a mapped network share, or by UNC path.
In case of a disaster recovery, HDM 14 Hyper-V Preview enables businesses to restore a previously backed up virtual machine to a new location according to a certain time stamp (if several are available). Users also are presented with the option to retrieve certain files from virtual containers through Connect VD and File Transfer Wizard.

To support external hosts with their guest machines, users are required to upgrade to Paragon Protect & Restore.

 


Key Features:


• Operates at the virtualization layer, employing MS VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to agentlessly protect Hyper-V guests
• Backs up entire virtual machines (online/offline) hosted by Hyper-V (Windows, Linux, etc.)
• Backs up directly to virtual containers (pVHD, VMDK, VHD, VHDX)
• Provides wide backup destination: a local disk (mounted/unmounted), a mapped network share, or a UNC path
• If using pVHD, additional options are available, like high-level compression, encryption, or image splitting
• Restores a previously backed up virtual machine to a new location according to a certain time stamp
• Allows granular file-level recovery through File Transfer Wizard

• Hyper-V Incremental Backup wizard

 


System requirements:


• Windows 8.1 with Hyper-V role
• Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V role
• Windows Server 2012 R1/R2 with Hyper-V role

  

Availability:


Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14 Hyper-V is a preview of a full-fledged commercial product and it is available to all SMBs for free download till August 31st, 2014 at: http://www.paragon-software.com/small-business/hdm-hyper-v/

Backups can be made to a hard disk, to the network or an optical (CD/DVD/Blu-ray) drive. The Backup Capsule feature is especially useful on notebook computers as it stores backups in a separate and hidden partition of the hard disk, where it cannot be accidentally accessed or deleted.
With more than 20 years of development expertise, Paragon Backup & Recovery 2014 Free edition offers users a rich set of features they can trust, meeting the highest standards and guaranteeing the PC’s safety.

 

New in June 2014 release:


• WinPE in Recovery Media Builder

 

New and updated features in Paragon Backup & Recovery 2014 Free Edition:


• WinPE Recovery Media Builder now available in the Express Launcher
• Windows 8.1 (32/64-bit) support (older versions back to Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4 are still supported)
• Complete UEFI support
• Windows Storage Spaces support
• Back up changes since the full, or the latest incremental image. Several incremental chains may be based on one full image, provided each contains the changed data for a particular backup object(s). pVHD-based incremental imaging works much faster, especially when the backup is stored in the network.
• Restore entire hard disks, separate partitions, or specified files and folders from pVHD (available under both, the WinPE based and the Linux-based recovery media)
• Restore contents of a 512-byte hard disk to a 4K hard disk with no additional actions by the user

New Paragon QNX Driver Embedded enables car owners to exchange data between embedded infotainment systems and digital assistants running all types of operating systems

Data Exchange Between QNX-based Media Centers and Laptops, Tablets and Desktop PCs Made Easy. The Largest Selection of Additional Cross-platform Tools for Users of Incompatible Consumer Electronics on Android, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux Available at Paragon Portal

 

FREIBURG, Germany, April 24, 2014 – Paragon Software Group (PSG), the cross-platform technology leader in innovative mobile device and embedded system solutions, announces the release of Paragon QNX Driver Embedded, the software solving compatibility and interoperability issues between QNX-based in-car infotainment systems and storage devices running on other operating systems, including Windows and Mac OS X. Paragon QNX Driver Embedded is targeted, foremost, towards middleware developers in the automotive industry who want to make the car owner's experience as convenient as possible. 

 

Paragon QNX Driver Embedded enables the sharing of multimedia data between QNX-based media centers and other digital media players and recorders, as well as with laptops, tablets and desktop computers, regardless of which file system they use – ExFAT, NTFS or HFS+. The new technology solves data exchange issues related to use of modern storage devices (for example, SDXC memory cards formatted as ExFAT) and USB external storage (e.g. portable USB hard disks). Paragon QNX Driver Embedded is a file system driver easily integrated into the QNX storage management system with a 10% to 20% better performance than that of the built-in QNX file system drivers (e.g. FAT32), depending on the file system type.

 

Paragon QNX Driver Embedded is based on the company’s proprietary UFSD cross-platform technology that enables any device to communicate and gain access to storage media regardless of file system type. Already installed in millions of devices, Paragon’s cross-platform tools provide the highest data throughput speeds possible — equivalent to, or exceeding, native performance. Paragon Software’s portal hosts a comprehensive line of essential tools for users of multiple devices on Android, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux who seek to solve incompatibility issues.

 

Paragon QNX Driver Embedded supports:

• QNX 6.5 and QNX 6.5 SP1
• ARM, x86 platforms
• ExFAT, NTFS, HFS+ file systems
• File system check & repair utilities
• Module size: FS driver – 200 KB for ExFAT, 800 KB for combo (NTFS, HFS+, ExFAT)

 

 

Availability:


The technology is available for licensing. For more details about the new solution and evaluation options, please visit the company’s web site: www.paragon-drivers.com/qnx-driver-embedded/ or contact technology@paragon-software.com
