Paragon Protect & Restore Solution Outshines Industry Leaders Across Storage Utilization, Resource Utilization, Deduplication and Support for Exchange and Complex Virtual Machine Environments
IRVINE, CA – October 30, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery (BDR), today announced its Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR) BDR software solution outperformed competing alternatives by a wide margin in benchmark analyses conducted by openBench Labs, an independent IT industry source providing evaluation and certification of IT products and services.
Just released by openBench and now available as a complimentary download on the Paragon website, the two-part analysis reveals that PPR offers clear BDR advantages to organizations in need of robust data protection. PPR ranked highest in the areas of storage and resource utilization, deduplication and support for Microsoft Exchange and complex virtual server environments.
openBench’s conclusions indicate that PPR utilizes a fraction of the storage of competing solutions, with agentless backup of an average SQL Server virtual machine (VM) only consuming 10% of the storage used by BE2014 and other BDR alternatives when de-duplication is employed. Without a SQL Server agent, PPR created the smallest full backup image of all BDR solutions tested using deduplication. And without deduplication, agentless PPR incremental backups were only 12% of the size of a leading BDR vendor’s incremental image, and agentless full VM backups were 63.5% smaller than BE2014.
Other key findings of the analyses in openBench’s robust test environment* include:

“From performance and value, to resource and cost savings, along with functionality in VM and Exchange email environments, PPR continues to lead the market in the areas that matter most to IT leaders and CIOs,” said Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corporation. “While other BDR solutions might have bigger marketing budgets behind them, they fall far short of PPR when evaluated in rigorous test environments. We’d like to thank openBench for shedding light on the value that PPR brings to the table.”
Optimized for SMBs and mid-enterprise markets with a focus on ease of use and ease of implementation, BDR effectively protects data spanning physical, virtual and hybrid server environments. Earlier this year, Paragon announced that PPR earned a 9.83 out of 10 points possible in TopTenReview’s 2014 ranking of Best Server Backup Software. In addition, PPR tied with a leading global brand to capture the top spot in the professional support category, while also earning the highest possible ratings across three other server backup software categories including recovery and restoration, management tools and resource management.
