New Paragon Virtualization Manager 12 Professional Solves All Virtualization Challenges Efficiently and Quickly!

New – fastest and safest partitioning engine for all virtual management tasks. Any type of migration (P2V, V2V, V2P and P2P), including migration from 2TB+ physical drive to a smaller virtual drive.

FREIBURG, Germany, April 23rd 2012Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, announces the release of Paragon Virtualization Manager 12 Professional. Paragon Software’s extensive research into the virtualization and data management markets found that even competent virtualization adopters had common problems with virtualization and data management. The new 12th version of Virtualization Manager Professional has been developed to solve all migration and virtual management challenges, making any type of migration or virtualization task easier and more convenient for even inexperienced users.

Migrate your PC system to a virtual environment (P2V) or vice versa (V2P) with zero downtime. Since most hypervisors do not support 2TB+ virtual drives, the 12th edition also allows migration from 2TB+ physical drives to a smaller virtual drive.

The updated Connect VD technology with non-destructive and snapshot mode assures the easiest data management and data transfer between different types of virtual machines, and allows migration from one virtual environment to another (V2V). Connect a virtual disk as if it were an ordinary physical disk and open up all physical-disk functionality in a virtual environment. Use a read-only mode or a special read/write mode that creates a snapshot and applies all changes after the snapshot was made to test all configurations without destroying your virtual source drive.

Virtualization Manager 12 Professional is compatible with products of all popular modern virtualization software providers, such as Microsoft, VMware and Oracle, and supports major virtual machines, including Oracle Virtual Box 4, Microsoft Virtual PC, VMware™ Workstation and VMware™ Fusion.

Key Features & Benefits:

·         Migrate a Windows-based computer to a virtual environment (P2V)
·         Migrate from a 2TB+ physical drive to a smaller virtual drive
·         Migrate from one virtual environment to another (V2V)
·         Migrate a Windows-based computer to a different hardware platform (P2P)
·         Restore a physical system from Paragon’s backup to a virtual environment (P2V Restore)
·         Connect a virtual disk as if it’s an ordinary physical disk, thus opening up all product functionality available for physical disks to virtual (new Connect VD with non-destructive and snapshot mode)
·         Create a virtual disk with a simple wizard (Create VD)
·         Recover OS startup ability after system migration to different hardware or unsuccessful virtualization by a third-party tool (P2P and P2V Adjust)
·         Exchange data between a physical environment and a virtual one, or between a virtual disk and its snapshots
·         Accomplish virtual drive partitioning (create, format, delete, move, resize, etc.)
·         Resume any operation with a virtual volume in case of disconnection or any other unexpected situation.
·         Merge volumes on a virtual drive to consolidate disk space, from two volumes on the virtual drive into one single, larger volume
·         Supports major virtual machines, including Oracle Virtual Box 4, Microsoft Virtual PC, VMware™ Workstation and VMware™ Fusion

Unlimited Free Testing of Windows 8® with PCmover

Laplink is making it easier for users to deploy and test Windows 8 with its free PCmover Windows® 8 Beta Assistant™.

Southampton, UK, 3rd April, 2012 – Laplink Software, Inc. today announced its PCmover Windows 8 Beta Assistant is fully compatible with the recent release of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. This free tool expedites testing of Windows 8 by migrating programs, files and user settings from a Windows 7 PC to a Windows 8 PC.

PCmover is useful for both IT professionals as well as general PC users. Available at Laplink, this program helps you easily move to a new operating system by not only transferring your data, but also saving you hours of time by automatically reinstalling programs and setting up user preferences.

“PCmover is still the only software that automatically moves all files, settings and applications to a new PC,” commented Laplink CEO Thomas Koll. “This is a significant time saver when testing Windows 8 because Microsoft does not offer a way to transfer applications across PCs. That’s where we come in. Get our free tool and let PCmover do all the heavy lifting for you.”

PCmover Windows 8 Beta Assistant is the easiest way to set up a new Windows 8 PC. Making sure that your existing applications are still relevant and functional in Windows 8 is as easy as transferring them via PCmover’s automated migration wizard. Set it and forget it.

Setting up multiple instances of Windows 8 for testing is a common practice. PCmover Windows 8 Beta Assistant accommodates this by allowing users to perform unlimited migrations before July 2012 at no cost.

“The more instances of an OS a developer can use, the wider the possibility of finding hiccups or holes in their software,” explained Laplink CTO Jack Wilson. “PCmover works well for testers because the programs, files and user settings can be migrated across both physical PCs and virtual machines (VMs). This allows for multiple testing opportunities, all at no cost to the developer.”

The manual process of migrating programs, files and settings can take hours if not days depending on the number of PCs utilized – and that is before the actual testing of Windows 8 begins. With PCmover, this time is reduced dramatically.

PCmover does not remove anything from the source PC so there is no risk to a user’s current environment. And unlike imaging tools, it does not overwrite the operating system on the destination PC, making it the perfect companion to help test Windows 8.

PCmover is available in a variety of editions including Home, Professional as well as Enterprise, which provides IT professionals with a powerful set of tools to easily define a customized migration experience.

Those interested in downloading the free PCmover Windows 8 Beta Assistant can do so here. More information about PCmover can be found at

PCmover is available online at Amazon for SRP £29.99 inc VAT

For larger organizations, Laplink offers pilot projects using PCmover Enterprise to ensure it meets the specific needs of each company’s unique migration project. Anyone interested in a pilot project should contact or visit for more information.
