New Hard Disk Manager Editions Offer Budget-Conscious Companies Unified, Very Cost-Effective Data Management Solutions for Virtual and Physical Environments

IRVINE, Calif. – Feb. 22, 2013 — / — Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, today announced its strengthened business strategy to support small and medium businesses (SMBs) and redefine its current broad portfolio to address SMBs’ backup, recovery and storage maintenance needs through enterprise-level functionality and attractive pricing models. Paragon’s orientation towards SMBs reinforces the company’s commitment to deliver the industry’s most cost-effective solution and most comprehensive feature set available on the market, enabling SMBs to handle all data management tasks on-site and from a single interface.

“The total cost of ownership of a piece of software is crucial for establishments of any size,” says Konstantin Komarov, CEO of Paragon Software Group. “Entrepreneurs want to make a single investment and be sure that their money is being used for a future-proofed product that doesn’t have any gaps in its functionality and that dependably handles all tasks from a single interface. The price structure and the scope of functionality of these new editions are both perfectly tailored to the needs of SMBs that are budget-conscious and have a limited IT administration staff.”

The new Hard Disk Manager 12 Business and Premium Editions are the industry’s most unified and cost-effective software solutions for system administrators, technicians, and IT consultants who need to quickly and easily make changes to the configuration of storage devices without any data loss or downtime. With this single tool suite, administrators can efficiently perform image- and file-based backup, bare-metal recovery to dissimilar hardware, migration, partitioning, and permanent wiping when re- or decommissioning physical servers and workstations.

Business vs Premium Editions
Hard Disk Manager 12 Business Edition is a perfect backup, disaster recovery and data storage maintenance tool for small businesses with up to 100 machines. Along with its extensive data management features for workstations, the Business Edition also supports server OS.

Hard Disk Manager 12 Premium Edition combines all of Paragon’s technologies and expertise in storage lifecycle management, data protection, and sanitization within stand-alone physical and virtual Windows environments. Along with the features included in the Hard Disk Manager 12 Business Edition, the Premium Edition also connects directly to virtual disks, allowing an administrator to manage any virtual disk on the network with the same ease as a direct-attached physical disk. Virtual environments can offer the ideal solution for companies looking to combine advanced tasks around backup and disaster recovery, virtualization and migration, storage management, and optimization. Built into the Premium Edition, Paragon’s ConnectVD technology enables an administrator to partition and manage virtual disks in a “cold” state and without an active hypervisor. In addition, files and operating systems on the virtual disk can be backed up and migrated to other hardware environments.

Both editions come with a flexible technician licensing model that allows the use of Paragon software on workstations and servers. Designed to simplify technicians’ routine tasks, the technician licensing model is free from constraints of time-consuming license agreements subject only to the restriction that the software must not be used on two systems simultaneously.

Price and availability:
Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 Business and Premium Editions are available for $179 and $599, respectively. Paragon offers three different technician licenses: Basic, Standard and Premium. For more information on licensing options:
