Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Paragon Software Group, a leader in hard disk management, backup and disaster recovery (BDR) technology, today announced the Hard Disk Manager (HDM) 15 IT Essentials Toolkit. With this disruptive all-in-one solution, IT resellers now have an offering that ensures their customers’ business-critical workstations and servers stay up, running and available 24/7.
Now available exclusively through the Paragon Pure Channel network of reseller partners across North America, the new toolkit is robust, easy to use and effectively takes care of numerous repetitive tasks that, up to now, required multiple point products with varying interfaces from several vendors. Using the HDM 15 Toolkit’s bootable flash drive, organizations of all sizes, from small to midsize businesses (SMB) to large-scale enterprises, can now optimize their time managing IT tasks with a single solution that can do it all including:
- Imaging and Deployment: Designed for both servers and workstations, the toolkit easily creates and executes an imaging and deployment process for Windows-based systems. SMBs can upgrade storage with minimal impact on business activities and make use of fast copy/clone functionality to expedite migration to new hard disk drives, solid state drives (SSD) or to different hardware configurations.
- Migration and Virtualization: The toolkit makes it easy to move applications and operating systems to new hardware, allowing the migration of Windows systems from practically any source to any target. In addition, it streamlines processes for virtualizing a running system, copying existing virtual machines and adapting them for use with a different hypervisor (e.g. from VMware Workstation to Microsoft Hyper-V) or virtualizing a physical server before retiring it.
- Partitioning and Disk Optimization: Advanced partitioning functions help make optimal use of all available hard disk space. Whether preparing a hard disk for use with multiple operating systems or redistributing storage space across several different partitions, the HDM 15 Toolkit allows top performance from SSDs and hard disks with 4k sectors and RAID volumes by way of automatic partition alignment. An advanced mode provides precise analysis and repair tools, allowing users to fix boot problems or quickly analyze their hard drive’s status.
- Secure Data Destruction: When retiring an old hard drive, Paragon’s military-grade wiping algorithms will protect and free up storage space to ensure data is permanently deleted.
“The New HDM 15 IT Essentials Toolkit offers a goldmine of functionality. Being able to provide a complete solution that scales to the enterprise and is priced starting at only $399 helps position iT1 Source as a trusted advisor to the IT professionals who count on us to help keep their networks optimized. Paragon’s new site licensing model has also made positioning and selling the right solution easy and ultimately, lets our customers get more value for their IT dollars,” said Zim Jackson, Partner Programs Manager, iT1 Source, a national full-service technology solution provider.
The launch of the new toolkit follows Paragon’s April introduction of its new Unified Site License, which simplifies selling for the reseller through pricing that is tiered according to the number of employees an end user company has.
“Today, more than ever, resellers gain a competitive edge by providing measurable value,” said Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corp. “Our full-featured HDM 15 IT Essentials Toolkit was designed with that idea in mind, delivering a comprehensive feature set in a single solution with a simple user interface and streamlined pricing. The result is a powerful combination for our partners and their customers.”
