Paragon Protect & Restore

Advanced backup and disaster recovery for virtual and physical servers and workstations, with centralized management for SMBs and medium-to-large enterprises.

Paragon Protect & Restore provides fast backup and best-in-class recovery capabilities. It ties in seamlessly with hypervisors for agentless backups, VM replication and instant restores. The central management console allows the user to configure backup and retention policies, storage locations, and perform restores, all conveniently from one console.



Agentless backup of online and offline VMs

Significantly enhances backup performance, while minimizing the load on target machines and the hypervisor during the process.

Agentless replication of online and offline VMs

Replication provides the best RTO, as it utilizes clones (replicas) of target machines on a certain ESX datastore.

Agent-based backup of physical machines, other hypervisor clients and fault-tolerant virtual machines

An agent on each target machine interacts with the backup server and performs backup tasks.

Flexible scheduling mechanism for near CDP

Protection policies can be scheduled from every few minutes to hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly.

Full and incremental backups

Enables a complete backup cycle for protected images that is optimized for speed and resource efficiency.


Significantly reduces backup storage footprint.
