On OS X, traditional backup archives are created at the file level by Apple’s built-in Time Machine and other third-party software that work in a similar fashion. Paragon Snapshot for Mac OS X is the only technology that allows users to create block-level archives of OS X volumes. Recovery from images made with Paragon Snapshot for Mac OS X are up to four times faster than restoring from existing Time Machine backups. Compared to file-level backups, the software also provides a higher compression rate for archived files. Among other advantages, Paragon Snapshot for Mac works 100 percent online while OS X is running, requiring no system restart or reboot. With this Snapshot technology in place, incremental backups will be smaller, because the block-level imaging stores only the blocks that have changed.
Once integrated, Paragon Snapshot will prove invaluable for Mac owners, providing them with an option to elevate and accelerate backup routines. When disaster strikes, Paragon Snapshot for Mac enables hassle-free recovery from snapshot-based backup archives, which is significantly more efficient than recovering from file-level backups. Based upon the company’s industry-proven, cross-platform Universal File System Driver, Paragon Snapshot for Mac OS X supports all popular file systems not natively supported by Mac (e.g., Windows NTFS or Linux ExtFS), thus assuring the safest data imaging and integrity.
Paragon Software provides flexible licensing packages for independent software developers as well as large disaster recovery solution vendors.
