Paragon Software's Hard Disk Manager Saves Critical IT Resources at Boise State University
IRVINE, CA, Dec 05, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Backup and disaster recovery software developer Paragon Software
Group (PSG) announced that Boise State University's TRiO Educational
Talent Search and TRiO Upward Bound Programs selected Paragon's Hard
Disk Manager (HDM) to save time and resources to deploy and/or
reimage desktop systems.
Boise State University's TRiO Educational Talent Search (ETS) and
Upward Bound programs provide outreach and assistance to
first-generation college bound and low-income students. The programs
maintain ten to twelve off-site classrooms with three to five
computers each, requiring regular reimaging.
After researching a software options, Corey Simpson, IT coordinator
for Boise State University's ETS and Upward Bound program, scheduled
a demonstration of Paragon's HDM.
"We needed to decrease the amount of time we were spending on
reimaging machines," said Simpson. "One of the features I looked for
in a solution was the ability to process multiple restores on the
network -- Paragon was the only vendor offering the features I needed
as well as disk partition and other disk management tools."
Before purchasing a technician's license, the reimaging process took
about three to four hours per machine -- essentially each machine
required a new build. With HDM, the process now requires 30 to 40
"HDM is a time saver that comes with useful tools for added
flexibility," continued Simpson. "It also gives me the ability to
backup a hard drive before reimaging, providing peace of mind that if
it fails I can restore the drive to its original state."
"Paragon HDM is a great alternative to Symantec Ghost or Backup Exec
or Acronis True Image," explains Daniel Eickhoff, director of channel
sales at Paragon. "In fact, 75 percent or our new customers are
switching to Paragon from Symantec or Acronis. Customers choose
Paragon because of our innovative technology, cost-effective
licensing and outstanding US-based technical support."
HDM is a complete solution for image-based backup and disaster
recovery. An available Virtual Server add-on component enables
technicians to back up virtual servers and leverage an existing
virtual environment for instant server recovery.
