Backup and disaster recovery software developer Paragon Software Group (PSG) announced that Boise State University's TRiO Educational Talent Search and TRiO Upward Bound Programs selected Paragon's Hard Disk Manager (HDM) to save time and resources to deploy and/or reimage desktop systems.
Boise State University's TRiO Educational Talent Search (ETS) and Upward Bound programs provide outreach and assistance to first-generation college bound and low-income students. The programs maintain ten to twelve off-site classrooms with three to five computers each, requiring regular reimaging.
After researching a software options, Corey Simpson, IT coordinator for Boise State University's ETS and Upward Bound program, scheduled a demonstration of Paragon's HDM.
"We needed to decrease the amount of time we were spending on reimaging machines," said Simpson. "One of the features I looked for in a solution was the ability to process multiple restores on the network -- Paragon was the only vendor offering the features I needed as well as disk partition and other disk management tools."
Before purchasing a technician's license, the reimaging process took about three to four hours per machine -- essentially each machine required a new build. With HDM, the process now requires 30 to 40 minutes.
"HDM is a time saver that comes with useful tools for added flexibility," continued Simpson. "It also gives me the ability to backup a hard drive before reimaging, providing peace of mind that if it fails I can restore the drive to its original state."
"Paragon HDM is a great alternative to Symantec Ghost or Backup Exec or Acronis True Image," explains Daniel Eickhoff, director of channel sales at Paragon. "In fact, 75 percent or our new customers are switching to Paragon from Symantec or Acronis. Customers choose Paragon because of our innovative technology, cost-effective licensing and outstanding US-based technical support."
