Engineering firm Industrial Molds selected Paragon Software Group’s Hard Disk Manager (HDM) Premium over the products of its competitors Symantec, Dell and Acronis for its comprehensive feature set and superior technical support, resulting in the best value in the marketplace. HDM provides fast, easy image-based “Backup and Restore” functionality incorporated with live server snapshots and seamless P2V migration technology.
“For three years I worked on securing the budget for a backup strategy,” explains Ben Spain, IT manager for Industrial Molds. “It took almost losing a server with critical CAD data to facilitate approval.” After three years of thoroughly researching competitive backup products, the decision to go with Paragon’s Hard Disk Manager came quickly. Spain’s deciding factors included cost, features, and quality of technical support. “Paragon was the only backup and disaster recovery software vendor offering the most comprehensive software solution and knowledgeable staff. Hard Disk Manager did everything I needed it to do, providing the best value.”
HDM is powerful image-based backup and disaster recovery software that protects data, minimizes downtime, and lowers data storage and management costs while ensuring business continuity through instant system recovery. Live server migration technology (P2V, V2P, V2V, and P2P) makes conversions easy and enables IT managers to make use of virtual environments for flexible disaster recovery strategies.
