Windows NTFS, Linux File Systems on the Rise with Mac Users: Five Percent of macOS Users Work with at Least Three Incompatible File Systems
Promotion Dates:
Paragon Software Group, the cross-platform technology leader in innovative mobile device and embedded system solutions, reports that Paragon UFSD (Universal File System Driver) Value Pack– a bundle of five essential cross-platform tools providing access to non-native file systems — has been installed by five percent of Paragon NTFS for Mac users, showing that every 20 macOS users work with at least three incompatible file system standards, demonstrating increasing market demand for cross-platform products. Previously available as licensing-based technology to consumer electronics manufacturers, in September, 2016 Paragon’s UFSD technology became available for the first time as a bundle pack targeted at individual users. Judging from installation data recorded during the first two months of availability, five percent of customers upgraded from NTFS for Mac 14 to UFSD Value Pack, a clear sign that five percent of macOS users work with at least three incompatible file system standards. Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes NTFS for Mac, ExtFS for Mac, HFS+ for Windows, ExtFS for Windows, and NTFS-HFS Converter. The UFSD Value Pack has been developed to instantly solve compatibility issues for users working with multiple file systems. The Pack comes with a lifetime free upgrade guarantee for just $49.95 — a savings of nearly $100 compared to purchasing each tool separately. For existing Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, ExtFS for Mac 10, or HFS+ for Windows 11 customers, the UFSD Value Pack is available for only $19.95. “I use the UFSD Value Pack personally and professionally. Personally, I have dual-boot laptops and desktops, and need to transfer information between the two systems as I work on different tasks. Professionally, I use Paragon products to transfer information from older hard drives onto new equipment, or recover information from damaged or unusable machines,” says John Hall, UFSD Value Pack user. “Paragon provides a single source for all major file systems – NTFS, HFS, and Ext3.  Having a single solution is important, so I have a single installation or upgrade, one place to contact for any issues, and a consistent approach.” Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes essential tools required for unprecedented high-performance read and write access to NTFS, HFS+, and ExtFS partitions from macOS or Windows-based systems, at the same time delivering lower CPU load and power consumption. With Paragon UFSD Value Pack installed, dual-boot users can easily write files to NTFS-formatted USB flash drives, SSDs, or traditional hard drives, and copy data to NAS-based storage from a macOS-based computer. Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes: Paragon NTFS for Mac® 14: Full, ultra-fast read/write access to NTFS partitions under macOS. Paragon ExtFS for Mac® 10: Full read/write access to Ext2/3/4 partitions under macOS with data transfer rate comparable to native file system performance. The same driver also checks, repairs, creates, and formats Ext2/3/4 volumes. Paragon HFS+ for Windows® 11: The only solution with full access to HFS+ partitions on disks of any type (GPT, MBR), with higher transfer rates than native HFS file-system performance. Paragon ExtFS for Windows®: Fast and transparent access to Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 partitions under Windows; read and write support for LVM (Logical Volume Management). Paragon NTFS-HFS Converter: Convert NTFS volumes to HFS+ and vice-versa, with a backup option. Lifetime free upgrade guarantee: Free upgrades for all included tools delivered directly to the user’s personal MyParagon account, plus free online support. Under licensing agreements, Paragon’s UFSD technology have already been successfully embedded into tens of millions devices worldwide by the industry’s major manufacturers such as Cisco, Dell, HP, Western Digital, ASUS, Seagate, Toshiba, Belkin, LG Electronics, Logitech, Buffalo, Netgear, Acer, EMC, Siemens, D-Link, Lenovo, and many others to provide non-native storage expandability. Fast and rock-solid read and write access to external storage via USB in embedded devices allows customers use standard USB HDDs and flash-drives formatted under Windows (NTFS) or macOS X (HFS+) without the need to reformat them. UFSD can be integrated into embedded devices to access the exFAT file system, which is required for SD XC support (SD Cards exceeding 32GB) following the SD Alliance storage standards. Easily customisable, Paragon’s technology makes external storage in embedded devices cross-compatible like never before, opening multiple options to users. For example, in contrast to the open source FUSE/NTFS3G-based file system drivers, Paragon UFSD™ NTFS driver is implemented at the kernel-level, resulting in a significantly improved read/write performance. Availability: Paragon UFSD Value Pack is available for $49.95 and can be downloaded from https://www.paragon-software.com/home/ufsd-value-pack/ A lifetime free upgrade guarantee for four key bundled products is included. For existing Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, ExtFS for Mac 10 and HFS+ for Windows 11 customers, the UFSD Value Pack is available for just $19.95. For purchasers of Paragon NTFS for Mac 12, the UFSD Value Pack is available for $24.95.

Axcient Launches Fusion Trade-Up Program
Promotion Dates:
Axcient, the industry-recognized leader in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS),  announced a Fusion trade-up program that lets channel partners offer enhanced protection to their clients with virtualized environments. The trade-up program gives partners in the Axcient Continuity Partner Program (CPP) the ability to transition their clients from existing physical and virtual Axcient appliances to the appliance-less Fusion disaster recovery and data protection service. Partners are eligible to receive up to a 100 percent trade-up credit based on environment size, retention requirements and recovery time objectives (RTOs). “Axcient is and always has been a channel-focused company,” said Justin Moore, CEO of Axcient. “This new trade-up promotion showcases Axcient’s commitment to enable our partners to deliver better service for their clients with best-of-breed data protection and disaster recovery solutions at an attractive price-point.” Based on ongoing partner feedback, providing simpler and more cost-effective ways to protect their clients’ virtualized environments was a key driver behind Fusion. While on-premises appliances were often necessary to achieve desired recovery point objectives (RPOs) for end-clients with limited network bandwidth, Fusion’s efficient WAN-optimized design completely eliminates that need. By eliminating the local appliance, Fusion makes it easier for partners to deploy, manage and scale services at their clients’ locations. In addition to announcing the trade-up program, Axcient is rolling out new partner sales and marketing tools, collateral and an Axcient Certified Expert (ACE) curriculum to make it easier for partners to market, sell and support Fusion, accessible through the Axcient Partner Portal. Partner Quotes “A large part of the clients we service already have redundancy and continuity built into their primary data centers, which greatly diminishes the value of DRaaS solutions that require an onsite appliance,” said Ryan Lakin, President of IronEdge Group. “With Axcient’s new transition path to Fusion, we can seamlessly move our clients onto an entirely cloud-based disaster recovery service that scales and performs at levels well above every other DRaaS offering on the market. This is a great example of Axcient’s ongoing commitment to the partner channel and further solidifies their leadership position within the MSP community.” “Many of our clients have offices with limited bandwidth, making it difficult to use purely cloud-based data protection and disaster recovery solutions,” said Dan Gross, VP of Operations at Rock Solid Technology Solutions. “We typically had to use a physical appliance to meet our clients’ recovery point objectives, and it would take anywhere from days to even weeks before their data was synchronized with the cloud. With Axcient Fusion, we can protect our clients’ applications and data with RPOs of just minutes—all without purchasing, installing or maintaining any additional hardware.”

Impartner Kicks off 2017 With Launch of Definitive Guide to Starting a Channel and Accelerating Sales
Promotion Dates:
Global SaaS Partner Relationship Management Leader Impartner  released the definitive guide on starting a channel to help emerging companies tap into the incredible power of an indirect channel to immediately impact sales. Titled The Ultimate Field Guide to Building a Channel, the eBook is written by top channel strategist and thought leader, Theresa Caragol, president of TCC consulting, and provides comprehensive, actionable information for channel chiefs on how to ensure they are moving into the channel for the right reasons, taking the appropriate steps to get started, and deploying the right initiatives early on to ensure long-term sustainable success. According to Impartner Chief Marketing Officer Dave R Taylor, the company created the guide in response to the explosive number of fast-growing SaaS companies that are struggling to find top sales talent and racing to understand the channel and how it can help them continue their growth trajectory. Building a direct team is prohibitive to scaling your business, Taylor said. It's expensive and time intensive, with a substantial lag between effort and effect. If you didn't start building your team for Q1 2017 growth in October of last year, you are already behind the game. The indirect channel provides a plug-and-play scenario with an immediate impact on sales, once you have your program up and running, and this guide is intended to help you move quickly. Author Caragol agrees the time is now for fast burgeoning, cloud-based companies to expand their sales with the channel, given SaaS solutions are growing five times faster than on premise technologies. This guide is designed to help fast-growing companies explore and achieve the right first time success in building a channel for their business, Caragol said. Click here to get your complimentary copy of the guide and learn more about how an indirect channel — and technologies like Impartner's PRM solutions — can help accelerate sales.
