Paragon Technology chosen for the International Space Station
Paragon’s disk management technology is now orbiting the earth on board the International Space Station (ISS), ensuring the safety of data obtained in NASA’s human research programs. Bio-astronautics personnel at Wyle, an ISS prime contractor, evaluated several backup and recovery tools for the astronauts to use to secure the data obtained in research. Of the tools available, Paragon’s Hard Disk Manager 11 came closest to meeting the project’s needs. The Paragon team stepped in to close the gap, providing a customized solution which minimized user interaction. Wyle selected Paragon’s HDM 11 following a rigorous regimen of simulated spaceflight software qualification and acceptance testing.
“At Paragon, we provide our clients with superior customer service regardless of where they are — now that extends to outer space.”
