One-Step Process Simplifies Migration to Faster SSDs
IRVINE, Calif., March 17, 2011 – Paragon Software Group (PSG), the leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, announced today that it is now shipping Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 2.0. According to an IDC Outlook report last year, shipments of solid state disk drives (SSDs) are expected to grow 14 percent per year with a compounded annual growth rate of 54 percent through 2013. As people take advantage of the drives’ better access time, read/write speeds, and resistance to physical shock from drops, the challenge becomes moving massive amounts of data, applications and the operating system to a smaller SSD format.
Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 2.0 meets this challenge by providing an intuitive wizard designed to simplify the migration process for SSDs. Paragon Migrate OS to SSD automatically downsizes the source system volume, if needed; auto-aligns the copied system partition; and provides intelligent selection of specific files for migration to smaller SSDs — all without rebooting the system.
“A little over a year ago, we began seeing system migration issues emerging around new SSD and 3TB drives,” said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. “We designed our one-step migration wizard to quickly and easily provide a smooth migration process regardless of the operating system or size of the drives.”
Key features and benefits of Paragon Migrate OS to SSD include the following:
- Upgraded file exclusion technology increases migration speed up to 10 times faster
- Simplicity and convenience of a one-step wizard
- Automatic partitions resize capability (resolving issues migrating from HDD to a smaller SSD)
- Automatic partition alignment awareness
- Microsoft Reserved Partition awareness (resolving issues surrounding complete visibility of 3TB-drive space)
- File exclusion/selection capability
- Hot copy, without system restart
- Smooth migration process regardless of the operating system
