Paragon to Support WNR3500L Router

Universal File System Driver Technology From Paragon Enables Access and File Sharing Between PCs, Clients and Servers

Linux Sessions at Cloud Expo

In keeping with its commitment to enable seamless communication between operating systems, Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in storage management solutions, today announced support for the new RangeMax(TM) Wireless-N Gigabit Router with USB (WNR3500L) from NETGEAR®, a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions.

Paragon NTFS for Linux will provide full access to a Windows (NTFS-formatted) hard drive attached to NETGEAR's WNR3500L open source router -- enabling all clients and servers, regardless of their operating system, to access and share files to and from the drive via the WNR3500L router.

"Paragon has enthusiastically responded to NETGEAR's open source router initiative to provide enhanced capabilities to our user community -- by embedding a full version (not a trial version) of their Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology into our router," said NETGEAR's Som Pal Choudhury, senior product line manager, advanced wireless division. "This version of UFSD, called Paragon NTFS for Linux, enables full high performance read/write access to a Windows (NTFS-formatted) external hard drive attached to the USB port of the NETGEAR WNR3500L Router, and allows all PCs, clients and servers on the network, running Windows, Mac, Linux, etc, to share files to the NTFS-formatted HDD attached to our router -- regardless of their Operating System."

Paragon Software has been chosen to join NETGEAR's Development Partner Program, which includes select software application vendors that are creating custom applications for the WNR3500L router that NETGEAR customers can download. The NETGEAR WNR3500L is supported by a dedicated open source router community, http://www.myopenrouter.com, which provides open source firmware downloads, applications, forums, blogs, articles, source code, and user guides. Members also have access to dedicated and responsive support from open source experts.

"We are extremely pleased to be asked to join the community of developers in NETGEAR's Development Partner Program, and to help harness the power of Open Source," noted Tom Fedro, president for Paragon Software Group. "Paragon's NTFS for Linux provides full performance, high speed file sharing to NTFS-formatted USB hard drives, an important feature for NETGEAR customers that we are happy to provide."
