Paragon Software, Irvine, Calif., just released its new Drive Backup 9 Server data protection software.
Drive Backup 9.0 Server provides complete system backup and recovery for Windows servers and desktops. It backs up data to any type of media, including Blu-ray disks, while other applications are running, or users can schedule backups.
New with version 9 is the ability for users to specify certain documents, music, videos or e-mail files.
It also includes Paragon's new Professional Adaptive Restore technology that allows customers to restore operating systems and data on any type of hardware, including virtual machines.
Customers can now also create a bootable USB flash drive that can be used to boot a PC and perform operations directly from the flash drive in case of operating system corruption or boot problems.
Also new is Windows Blue Screen Support, which allows tasks to be executed in the Windows blue screen mode so that bootable media is not needed for modifying system partitions.
Pricing for the software starts at $299 per server.
