Paragon Software's Hard Disk Manager Saves Critical IT Resources at Boise State University

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- 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 minutes.

"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.

Highlights

  • Bare-metal restore to dissimilar hardware and instant server recovery to VM
  • Incremental and differential backups
  • Live server migrations (P2P, P2V, V2V, V2P)
  • Wizards and easy scheduling for set-and-forget operations
  • Scripting engine for advanced or unique backup requirements
  • Customizable WinPE and DOS/Linux recovery media
  • Advanced partitioning and automatic partition alignment
  • Highly secure disk wiping algorithms (DoD certified)

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
