Paragon Drive Backup 11 is a reliable, high-performance, imaging software solution designed for workstation and server data protection and comprehensive business continuity. With the new upgrade, Paragon enhances the Drive Backup product family with the ability to exclude database applications on servers, thereby avoiding potential data inconsistencies when multiple backup procedures and products are implemented within the operating environment.
Further, Paragon Drive Backup 11 now supports the creation of incremental images, in addition to the traditional full-system images, of hard drives and partitions. Incremental images save IT administrative time and space on backup storage.
For virtual environments, Paragon's ConnectVD technology directly connects to offline ESX based virtual hard disks and performs all major backup-and-restore operations on the virtual storage platform. Since more than one virtual hard drive can be connected simultaneously to Paragon Drive Backup 11 Server, backups of multiple volumes can be accomplished as easily as backups of physical devices.
"For well over a decade now IT administrators have incorporated Paragon's Drive Backup software into their disaster recovery and business continuity plans," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. "With this new version of Drive Backup, Paragon jumps to the head of the class in providing small- to mid-enterprise businesses a complete solution at a very competitive price point."
Drive Backup 11 features application-level exclude for servers, incremental imaging, updated P2V copy and P2V restore, Adaptive Restore 3.0, Oracle Virtual Box 4 support, ability to Connect VD with non-destructive and snapshot mode, 2.2+ TB hard-disk drive support, USB 3.0 support, encrypted backup, Paragon WinPE Boot Media Builder wizard, latest Linux boot medium based on Suse 11.4 support, asynchronous writing functionality for increased backup speed, backup- status email notification, and file-level exclude for data migration to smaller disk space.
Available editions of Paragon Drive Backup 11 include DB 11 Workstation, DB 11 Server, and DB 11 Small Business Server.
