DRAPER, Utah, U.S.A. – May 24, 2011 – Intel® announced today that it has selected StorageCraft® as a premier partner to provide award-winning backup and disaster recovery technology for the Intel ® AppUp sm Small Business product.
Intel is partnering with StorageCraft Technology Corporation, a provider of innovative backup, disaster recovery, system migration and data protection solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, to provide solutions for its Intel AppUp product. StorageCraft ShadowProtect® backup, disaster recovery and system migration software will now be available for Intel managed service providers (MSPs) to purchase through the Intel AppUp center. ShadowProtect gives MSPs the ability to offer fast, flexible and reliable data protection, disaster recovery and system migration services to their small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers.
“This partnership not only empowers Intel MSPs to provide their customers with unbeatable ShadowProtect technology, it also helps small businesses, giving them the peace of mind that their systems and data are thoroughly protected. This matches our philosophy perfectly: We strive to provide fast, flexible and reliable backup and recovery to SMBs, allowing them to focus on growing their businesses instead of worrying about how to protect their data,” said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development at StorageCraft.
Intel AppUp Small Business gives customers the power of an onsite server, a catalog of business applications to choose from, and an Intel-developed support service, which securely manages the usage of the software. Once a customer selects StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® for data backup and recovery, managed service providers (MSPs) activate and manage the product. Customers pay only for their monthly use of the software.
“The Intel AppUp Small Business provides a foundation on which Intel industry partners like StorageCraft can add their own innovations. But the ultimate beneficiaries are small businesses, who now have a major new option for growing their business with IT, one that combines the flexibility of cloud computing with the control and performance advantages of their own onsite server,” said Bridget Karlin, General Manager, Intel Hybrid Cloud.
Intel AppUp Small Business features Intel® Xeon® processor capabilities, the Intel software layer, and usage tracking service. It also provides a foundation for industry partners like StorageCraft to offer small businesses a major new option to grow with IT support.
