NEW Unified Site Licensing Streamlines Purchase and Administration for SMBs; Offers a Single SKU for Centrally Managed BDR, Replication, and Deduplication

IRVINE, CA – April 22, 2015 — / — Paragon Software Group, a leader in hard disk management and backup & disaster recovery (BDR) technology, today announced Paragon’s Protect & Restore Unified Site License, a disruptive new licensing model designed to take the time and hassle out of BDR sales for channel partners while also streamlining the purchase and administration process for their small to midsize business (SMB) customers.

Now available exclusively to Paragon’s North American channel partners, the Unified Site License is anchored by the award-winning Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR) BDR solution, which offers robust, high performance backup and recovery capabilities for physical servers, virtual hosts and workstations; all in a single centrally managed solution.

Selling is simplified for the reseller as pricing is tiered according to the number of employees an end user company has. A single SKU covers all servers, virtual machines and workstations for backup, recovery and replication — along with best in class de-duplication at no additional cost. The SMB site license can scale to thousands of systems over time and begins with options that are packaged in 4 tiers – 1 to 10 seats, 11 to 25 seats, 26 to 50 seats or 51 to 100 seats starting at only $999. One and three-year license options are also available.

“Paragon’s new PPR Unified Site License is not only a game changer for our SMB customers, but it also offers a disruptive sales model for our business,” said John Prat, Information Systems Consultant for California Office Systems, a leading technology provider located in Southern California. “Now we can sell a unified solution for physical servers, VM hosts and client workstations, making it easier than ever for our customers to purchase the right BDR technology for their organization.”

PPR is ideal for IT professionals who manage infrastructures of all sizes – from one server to thousands – and offers agent-based and agentless data protection options, along with no-hassle, set-it-and-forget-it configuration and operation.

“PPR gives our partners and their customers the best in BDR technology, packed conveniently in a centrally managed, user friendly solution,” said Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corp. “Now SMBs can take advantage of PPR’s enterprise-class features and functionality, delivered in a game-changing and money-saving site license that is priced according to the size of their business. At the same time, our resellers appreciate the simplified, streamlined pricing, which leads to stronger profits and revenue.”

With the award-winning PPR solution, SMBs also benefit from:

  • Minimized backup windows and a smaller storage footprint
  • Storage requirements reduced by up to 80 percent via PPR’s powerful deduplication engine
  • Leveraging virtual machines for robust and cost-effective disaster recovery strategies
  • Lower total cost of ownership from the time implementation begins and for many years to follow
