The product addresses increase in partition alignment problems associated with virtualization, 4K advance format HDDs and SSDs
PAT 3.0 is a user-friendly software utility designed to automatically determine if a drive’s partitions are misaligned, and then properly realign all existing partitions, including boot partitions (and any data they contain) to 4K sector boundaries.
“Over the past year, we have seen a steady interest from home users and small businesses for our alignment technology,” said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. “Not only do we expect that trend to continue, we also anticipate that every company from mid-enterprise to the Fortune 1000 firms will encounter alignment issues as they migrate to virtual environments and 4K Advance Format hard drives.”
The solution is included in Paragon’s mainstream products such as Hard Disk manager and Partition Manager. It is available as an add-on feature for Virtualization Manager.
PAT 3.0 can be downloaded as standalone software for $29.95.
