Paragon Software Group Teams with Iomega

Universal File System Drive technology from Paragon will power such Iomega storage innovations as the iConnect Wireless Data Station.

According to Paragon Software Group, the company has been selected by Iomega, an EMC company and data protection provider, to supply Universal File SysParagon Software Group Teams with Iomega tem Drive technology.

Paragon Software will provide technology solutions to Iomega for embedding in or bundling with Iomega products to serve the consumer storage, network storage, and network appliance markets.

The first Iomega product to include Paragon’s technology is the Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station. Unveiled at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in January, the iConnect Wireless Data Station provides a simple way to bring USB storage into a user’s network, enabling the user to connect, share, and access files anywhere. With the addition of Paragon NTFS for Linux and HFS for Linux, users will be able to attach their Windows and/or Mac-formatted external HDDs to the iConnect Wireless Data Station, thereby turning it into an NAS device.

Paragon says its technology will enable PCs and servers attached to the iConnect Wireless Data Station to access and share files to/from the attached drive, regardless of the drive’s format.

Paragon’s NTFS for Linux and HFS for Linux are based on Paragon’s unique Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology, which was specially developed to provide full high-performance access (read/write, format, etc.) to volumes of the most popular file systems (NTFS, HFS, Ext2/3FS, etc.) under various kernels and operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, VxWorks, etc.), where these file systems would not otherwise be supported.

Paragon Software Group president Tom Fedro says he considers Iomega a leader in the SMB storage market, one that he’s eager for his company to work alongside. “Our technology, combined with Iomega’s products, will benefit a variety of customers, from consumers to SOHOs to SMBs. We are excited about working with Iomega to offer customers a rich and satisfactory experience.”

For its part, Iomega says Paragon was an obvious choice for this type of partnership.

“Paragon was a natural fit for us due to their pioneering UFSD technology for cross-platform compatibility, coupled with the best read/write performance available,” says Bill Hansen, NAS product manager, Iomega Corp.

“Iomega is one of the leaders in the consumer and SMB storage market,” said Tom Fedro, president of
