While age-old disaster recovery (DR) questions and concerns linger, the recent market changes are set to dramatically impact the DR capabilities and budgets of modern businesses. Majority of the businesses today are hosting mixed physical and virtual computing environments, creating a need for a single product to manage the entire spectrum of backup and disaster recovery (BDR) initiatives. Spearheading the new developments and technological advancements arising in the disaster recovery space is Paragon Software that provides state-of-the-art solutions for BDR markets to alleviate the security concerns of business data.

Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR) is Paragon’s flagship all-in-one offering for physical systems, VMware and Hyper-V, which has broken the barrier of world-class innovation in the BDR market, making enterprise-class features available to the more budget-conscious small to midsize market. Among its features is the patent-pending Paragon Image Transfer Engine, which captures full and incremental backups and replicas of critical enterprise systems and data. PPR integrates with VMware APIs and reduces the size of all virtual machine backup images, resulting in minimal backup windows. The result is that business data is never at risk of being lost or unprotected. “In fact, our proprietary PPR backups and replica snapshots consume as little as one-tenth the storage space of similar solutions,” extols Tom Fedro, President and CEO of Paragon Software Group Corporation.

Certified as the best server backup software, PPR captures the top spot in the professional support category, while also earning the highest possible ratings across other server backup software categories.

Paragon’s comprehensive BDR solutions, address the challenges of today’s complex mixed environments with a full range of features, serving as a single, centralized solution to simplify and strengthen BDR.
The company bundles multiple key features into a single product including backup and recovery, deduplication, virtualization, replication, disk cloning, migration, advanced partitioning, deployment/re-deployment, secure disk wiping, and more.

Right across their value chain, Paragon offers a unique unified site licensing model that allows customers to purchase a single SKU and product that will work with all of their physical servers, virtual hosts, and even critical workstations. “With this game-changing approach to licensing we are able to provide our solutions at no additional cost,” states Fedro. The company also offers Hard Disk Manager (HDM) platform, which provides IT managers and technicians with a bootable flash drive that handles almost every disk management and system lifecycle tasks.

“With our proven solutions, we have shown our customers a minimum cost savings of at least 25 percent per year when compared to their current provider,” says Fedro. Recently, a hospital in the Phoenix metro area was overwhelmed with multiple BDR products for their 40 physical servers and virtual hosts. As their existing products were up for renewal, they chose PPR because of its robustness and ease of use. With PPR, they could integrate, manage, and maintain all their systems within a single platform across the entire organization. “We were able to deliver a better, more comprehensive solution for all their physical and virtual systems that saved them over 40 percent on their overall BDR investment while eliminating the burden of managing multiple vendors,” says Fedro.

Paragon’s success is driven by a strong commitment to providing go-to-market partners with the necessary resources, investments, and deliverables to enable them to effectively meet their goals. “With our simple licensing approach, we make it easy for our customers to enjoy peace of mind without the typical BDR vendor management headaches; With Paragon, One Product, One SKU covers your entire company. Along with our superior technology, this is an important value proposition that, we take great pride in,” concludes Fedro.
