Data has been called “the new currency,” “the new raw material of business,” and even “the new oil.” More than ever, organizations understand the value of the data they collect and generate, and rely on mission-critical information systems to drive sales, build relationships and advance their businesses. Data loss represents the greatest risk to modern organizations, and companies now talk about “business continuity” when they discuss downtime. More often than not, disaster has less to do with the destruction of brick and mortar than the inability to maintain access to data and applications, although for businesses without the right backup and recovery solutions, the two can go hand in hand.
Despite these shifting concerns and sensibilities, many organizations are still relying on antiquated approaches to backup and recovery systems. Whether recovery means simply being able to restore a file inadvertently deleted by a user or a site-destroying event, modern backup systems that eschew file-based approaches provide clear advantages to businesses of all sizes.
This paper examines the advantages of image-based backup and recovery solutions over legacy file-based systems, and explores ways that multi-tiered backup can ensure business continuity in a variety of situations. Specifically, Paragon’s Protect & Restore, arguably the most user-friendly and robust solution among image-based backup providers, offers unique benefits and unsurpassed opportunities for channel partners who deploy it for their clients.
20 Years of Paragon and a Fresh Approach to Backup and DR: Paragon Software Group has spent the last 20 years developing software to support the data security and storage management needs of businesses of all sizes. More recently, it has also begun expanding its portfolio of mobile productivity and reference software, further reinforcing its position as a premier provider of business solutions.
Over Paragon’s 20 years of creating innovative solutions for everything from multicasting to continuous data protection, the company has developed unparalleled expertise in disk- and file-based backup and DR, as well as system virtualization, deployment, and hard disk management. Countless OEMs and other technology partners license Paragon file system and imaging tools, while a rapidly growing cadre of businesses, from SMBs to Fortune 500 companies, is relying on data protection solutions by Paragon Software.
Leaving File-Based Backup in the Dust: All of this experience has left Paragon uniquely positioned to develop the most robust, user-friendly, comprehensive backup and recovery solution in the market. Providing performance, granularity and utility that legacy file-based backup systems can’t match, Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR) also offers single-console control of remote, virtual and physical backups that is unique among its image-based competitors.“PPR is arguably the most user-friendly and robust image-based backup solution", says CRN.
