Paragon Software Group (PSG), a data security and data management solutions company based in Irvine, Calif., has released its Drive Backup 10 Server Edition, which the company says is a comprehensive, cost-effective backup solution that offers disaster recovery and system migration in both physical and virtual environments. The solution is specifically targeted to SMBs.
Drive Backup 10 Server Edition is designed to optimize workload, reduce recovery times and associated costs with migrating or deploying systems, and give IT managers flexibility in managing the continuity of their systems–whether in a physical or virtual environment.
The solution includes Adaptive Restore, which gives the ability to restore to different hardware; competitive offerings, says Paragon, require purchasing this functionality as an add-on module.
“With the growing complexity and associated challenges of managing and protecting data assets, piecemeal approaches to backup miss the mark,” says Deni Connor of Storage Strategies Now. “Paragon’s comprehensive approach to backup tracks well with the needs we see today.”
As the corporate environment continues to embrace virtualization and reap its economic benefits, Paragon Software developed the newest edition of its flagship Drive Backup product to enable and simplify migration to a virtual environment. Drive Backup 10 Server Edition creates an exact duplicate image of the live disk drives on servers or workstations, including the operating system, all files, programs, updates, and databases. Additional new features and benefits include:
- Backup to FTP – Expanded backup capability to include online archiving
- Schedule file backup – Include/exclude file types
- Adaptive Restore – Third generation
- Improved remote management capabilities
- Support for Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7
Drive Backup 10 Server Edition also offers a system boot corrector, ability to create and manage custom scripts, virtual operations to preview tasks before making them live, and a file transfer wizard.
Priced at $499, Drive Backup 10 Server Edition is now available from Paragon Software; visit www.paragon-software.com/business/db-server/ to learn more. Or, to access the company’s forum for Drive Backup users, go to www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=107.
