Some background on our new backup and disaster recovery software
As we prepared for the launch of ShadowControl ImageManager(TM), we kept talking about how we wanted our partners to feel like they could control the backup and disaster recovery process, rather than just manage it. To us, the word manage feels like just getting by or being able to just handle it.
The ImageManager technology has always been a standard component of ShadowProtect since we release version 3 a few years ago, but it’s now branded as ShadowControl ImageManager with features like ShadowStream(TM), intelligentFTP(TM) and HeadStart Restore(R), the user can customize his or her settings to what best suits the scenario. Need to transfer large files over a highly-latent connection? Use ShadowStream. Are you already a pro at setting up off-site FTP servers? Then intelligentFTP may meet your needs. Want to pre-stage your backup image, making it possible to recover your data within minutes? HeadStart Restore is the tool for you. ShadowControl ImageManager puts you squarely in the driver’s seat.
We’ve also worked on creating pricing that makes sense. We encourage our partners to create customizable backup and disaster recovery solutions for their customers, and making you buy licenses and jobs you’ll never use just doesn’t fit with that philosophy. With the pricing structure for ShadowControl ImageManager, you pay only for the licensed jobs you need. Your pricing and perks will rely on your current configuration, so it’s best to contact one of our distribution partners – Lifeboat Distribution or SYNNEX – or one of our inside sales reps to get specifics.
