Paragon Software Group Unveils Paragon Protect & Restore for Centralized Backup and Disaster Recovery of Virtual and Physical Servers

Tight Integration With Hypervisors for Agentless Backups, VM Replications and Seamless Restores

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2013) -  Storage, backup and recovery leader, Paragon Software Group (PSG), announced the launch of Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR), featuring centralized remote management of physical and virtual machines. The software provides agentless backup of virtual servers and workstations through a tight integration with VMware vSphere (Microsoft Hyper-V coming soon). PPR additionally supports agent-based backup of physical Windows® machines and other hypervisor clients.

"PPR is highly scalable from 1 to 1000s of servers and perfect for businesses backing up in a virtual, physical or mixed environment," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. "Our goal was to develop a backup and disaster recovery solution that offers comprehensive data protection, a fast recovery process and excellent technical support, all delivered at a reasonable price point; early adopters of the product are telling us we succeeded."

"We are particularly excited for our channel partners, as Paragon Protect & Restore will allow them to engage larger companies, get more services involved, and maximize their profits by taking advantage of Paragon's aggressive reseller discounts," adds Daniel Eickhoff, director of channel sales at Paragon Software Group.

Key Paragon Protect & Restore features

  • Integrates tightly with hypervisors (VMware ESX now, Hyper-V with next version) allowing agentless backup, replication and fast restore of client machines in seconds
  • Provides agent-based option to safeguard physical machines and other hypervisor clients
  • Offers fast incremental backups and flexible scheduling options
  • Offers primary local storage and secondary archive storage (local, network storage and SFTP/FTP currently available -- Amazon and other cloud storage options coming soon) via a two-tier backup storage infrastructure
  • Provides detailed reporting and monitoring views

Paragon Protect & Restore comes with Paragon's Adaptive Restore, which supports seamless recovery to completely different hardware, also known as hardware-independent restore (HIR). Further, PPR incorporates Paragon's proven UFSD technology, which enables the software to be aware of what type of data resides inside of backup images and for fast access to granular recovery options.

Backups of physical and virtual machines can be managed from multiple management consoles, or a central location. The product's distributed architecture allows flexible scalability and accommodates environments of different sizes and configurations. A unified installation package includes all components of the product, which can be installed all on one machine, or be deployed across several machines from the management console, according to needs.

Additional features scheduled for upcoming releases include Microsoft Hyper-V support, Dedupe and Granular Recovery for Exchange. For more information, visit http://www.paragon-software.com/medium-large-business/protect-and-restore/index.html.
