The new bundle delivers powerful features, such as single push management, which allows execution of migration and deployment processes across hundreds of machines simultaneously.

Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery (BDR) technology, today announced a new Windows 8 Migration and Deployment bundle designed to eliminate the time and headaches associated with migrating to the Windows 8 operating system. Now available at a special promotion price through the end of September, the bundle features the Paragon Hard Disk Manager (HDM) 14 “Technician’s Edition” combined with the company’s Deployment Manager 11 offering to provide a time-saving solution for IT managers and Paragon Pure Channel partners.

“IT managers constantly wrestle with the challenges of technology changes across their IT landscape, and many of them now are facing Windows 8 migration,” said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group Corporation. “The reality is, not all Windows 8 migration and deployment tools are keeping up with today’s requirements, and that’s why we’re introducing the bundle – to give our channel partners and customers a solution that is proven to help them effectively transition to the new operating system with minimal time and effort.”

According to industry reports, Windows 8 is now running on more than 14 percent of the world’s desktop and notebook systems, and the adoption rate has been on the rise in recent months. The Paragon Windows 8 Migration and Deployment bundle addresses IT managers’ points of pain by offering an end-to end solution to their migration needs. With the industry’s most complete array of disk imaging, migration, system optimization and disk utilities, the new bundle also delivers powerful features, such as single push management, which allows execution of migration and deployment processes across hundreds of machines simultaneously.

HDM14 provides customers the ability to quickly image an existing system and deploy that image on a new or different hard disk drive, solid state disk or other Windows 8 hardware device. The bundle’s key features and functions include:

  • Copy/restore to dissimilar sector size
  • Copy or restore contents of a 512-byte hard disk to a 4k hard disk with no additional user actions
  • Automatic partition alignment
  • Separate OS and data or different types of data by splitting one partition into two different partitions of the same type and file system, thus providing for more effective data organization and safety
  • Increase free space on one partition by taking available, unallocated space from other partitions
  • Repair system boot problems due to human error, program error or a boot virus activity under Linux or WinPE
  • Successfully clone, migrate or restore a 64-bit Windows system configured to the uEFI-based boot mode
  • Fix uEFI related boot problems, and more

According to Robert DeVault, IT Supervisor with MC Assemblies, “The previous migration solution we used lacked the latest functionality and support needed to successfully image and deploy Windows 8 machines. Now, with Paragon offering us the ability to image straight from a boot disk, our migration initiative is on the fast track and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”

Special Bundle Pricing

Now through the end of September, with any Paragon HDM Standard Technical License, customers can add full enterprise-class deployment capabilities including single push management for only $5 per deployment.
