STORAGECRAFT PROTECTS HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATIONS AGAINST TRIPLE THREAT

StorageCraft for Healthcare Addresses Data Management Cost, Complexity and Protection Challenges for Healthcare Providers

DRAPER, UT, February 19, 2019 — The widely standardized use of electronic health records and medical imaging, plus the growth in data intensive health applications such as wearable technologies and telemedicine, are catapulting even small healthcare organizations into the petabyte era. To help healthcare organizations immunize themselves against the resulting triple threat of spiraling data costs, system downtime and loss of data integrity, StorageCraft has introduced StorageCraft for Healthcare, a converged scale-out primary and secondary data platform with integrated data protection. 

StorageCraft worked with healthcare solution partners to optimize its recently introduced OneXafe solution — the industry’s first converged data platform for both primary and secondary data, and data protection — for the specific requirements of healthcare environments. Said Ross Hurd, CIO at Lake Chelan Community Hospital, "A one-two punch of data-hungry advances in medical technologies and growing data compliance regulations poses a significant challenge for our IT systems and budgets. StorageCraft presented the means to solve our data challenges of today – and the means to simply and cost-efficiently scale in the future. We now have an easy to manage and exceptionally well-protected data environment in a single solution, that meets our needs for remote replication, file serving data protection, continuous data protection and even protects us from possible exposure to ransomware.”

StorageCraft for Healthcare helps solve the most pressing issues of healthcare-specific data management and protection, including:

Eliminating Spiraling data costs: Healthcare organizations are facing unprecedented growth in storage capacity. For example, image archives alone are expanding by as much as 40 percent annually[1]. StorageCraft for Healthcare delivers comprehensive data management and protection services in a single and easy-to-use solution with seamless integration to disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). Healthcare organizations can scale-out storage dynamically as their requirements change over time. They can start with a single node cluster and a few terabytes of capacity, then seamlessly and non-disruptively scale to petabyte storage without any configuration or application changes. Additional features include in-line variable-length deduplication, compression, encryption at rest, and multi-site remote replication. These features dramatically reduce data footprint and cost while helping to satisfy HIPAA compliance requirements for data protection and disaster recovery.

Malicious threats are thwarted: Because StorageCraft for Healthcare delivers central visibility of all data, it can provide strong encryption along the entire data lifecycle without adding undue management complexity. It also protects information by taking snapshots every 90 seconds. As the object store is immutable, the snapshots and the original data remain completely unaffected in event of attack – such as ransomware. This allows healthcare organizations to immediately recover the most recent version of data, enabling them to thwart a ransomware attack. This feature is of particular value to healthcare organizations considering 45 percent of all ransomware attacks in 2017 were aimed at the healthcare sector[2].  

Insurance policy premiums are lowered: While healthcare organizations can look to insurance policies to protect against the financial risk associated with breaches in privacy and data, every medical record is typically assigned a dollar value by insurance companies as part of their risk assessments. This can add up to tens of millions of dollars in required coverage. When healthcare organizations can demonstrate they have effective data management and protection strategies in place, these premiums can be reduced because the risk of claims against the coverage is reduced. Recently, a StorageCraft healthcare customer was looking at a $22 million insurance policy, and,  by deploying StorageCraft solutions, the premium was significantly reduced, thus delivering immediate ROI on the deployment of the entire project.

Data degradation is contained: Unlike any other vendor, StorageCraft provides a platform that converges both primary and secondary data while also adding integrated data protection. This is of value for healthcare environments because the solution detects “silent” data degradation caused by bit rot. Legacy storage systems store images such as X-rays to a picture archiving and communication system and may not detect if data has been compromised. As a result, the information read from the legacy storage system may be corrupt and unusable. This does not happen with StorageCraft for Healthcare, making it an important asset for healthcare organizations where fast and unhindered access to data can make the difference between life and death.  

Configuration, pricing and availability: A complete OneXafe converged scale-out data protection solution, optimized for mid-sized healthcare organizations, begins at $63,248 for 120TB. It includes all software, hardware, and data protection services for an unlimited number of virtual and physical servers. A OneXafe scale-out storage solution starts at $13,995.

Supporting Quote
Shridar Subramanian, Vice President, Product Management and Marketing at StorageCraft
“If healthcare practitioners can’t get the patient’s information when they need it, the quality of care could be severely compromised. That means data management and protection is an absolute must. A scale-out converged primary and secondary data platform with integrated data protection is a game-changer for healthcare organizations. This is especially true for medium-size healthcare practices and hospitals that face the same data challenges as large healthcare providers but have far fewer resources and smaller budgets at their disposal. In a single, easy to manage and massively scalable environment, StorageCraft for Healthcare is a complete data management and protection solution that cost-effectively solves the budget, management and risk challenges of explosive data growth."

StorageCraft Introduces OneXafe – Disrupts Data Protection and Data Management Market

Converged Primary and Secondary Storage with Integrated Data Protection Demolishes Storage Silos and Eradicates Downtime

DRAPER, Utah – August 20, 2018 — StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced OneXafe, a ground-breaking converged data platform that eliminates storage and data protection silos, blurs the lines between primary and secondary storage and scales out seamlessly to help manage explosive data growth. OneXafe delivers much-needed relief to the vast number of mid-sized and fast-growth organizations struggling with data management, data protection and the risk of downtime.

Designed specifically for mid-sized organizations, OneXafe is a converged scale-out storage and data protection platform for both physical and virtual environments. It delivers comprehensive storage and data protection services in a single, integrated and easy-to-use solution with seamless integration to DRaaS. Unlike Veeam and other software-only backup products, StorageCraft's OneXafe provides a complete solution to data protection challenges by integrating primary, secondary and cloud data-management capabilities.

Eric Bodily, systems administrator for Idaho Falls School District, saw the benefits of OneXafe right away: "Our legacy backup system was buckling. It couldn’t keep up with the data growth and lacked VMware integration. We quickly disregarded Veeam and Rubrik as solutions because Veeam only solved half the problem while Rubrik was economically unviable. With StorageCraft’s OneXafe, we can scale data capacity with ease and at unprecedented economics, plus we have the VMware and Volume Shadow Service (VSS) integration we need. We now manage primary and secondary data in a single environment and our entire data infrastructure can be managed, protected and recovered in seconds.”

At the core of OneXafe is StorageCraft’s patented, distributed, object-based file system that is tightly integrated with powerful and flexible data protection services. The file system delivers universal file data access to users and applications. The data protection services with SLA-based policy-driven protection and management provides flexible, reliable and instant recovery. This convergence delivers powerful recovery and optimized work-flow for management simplicity.

"The data protection and recovery software market is expected to continue strong growth through 2021," said Phil Goodwin, research director at IDC. “As businesses suffer the damage inflicted by downtime, they will increasingly embark on ‘the new race to zero’ - near zero RPO and RTO. StorageCraft's OneXafe aims to shift the paradigm of traditional data protection by converging data platforms for primary and secondary storage while integrating data protection. It is a development worth watching closely.”

The OneXafe platform comprises:
Powerful Data Protection:
OneXafe delivers industry-leading recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) for premium data integrity and business continuity. The patented VirtualBoot feature in OneXafe recovers even terabyte-sized virtual machines in less than a second. It protects applications in both virtual and physical environments within a single workflow and supports a variety of deployments—on-premises, remote data center or cloud-based DRaaS.

One-Click DRaaS Orchestration: OneXafe data protection policies can replicate to StorageCraft Cloud Services and enable organizations to achieve total business continuity. Organizations can recover data, compute and network services all in an orchestrated recovery workflow with a single click.

Scale-out Storage On-the-Fly: OneXafe enables organizations to scale-out storage dynamically as requirements change over time. They can begin with a single node with a few terabytes of capacity, then seamlessly and non-disruptively scale to multiple petabytes with zero configuration or application changes and thereby eliminate the need for forklift upgrades. Additionally, organizations benefit from OneXafe’s in-line variable-length deduplication and compression, which dramatically reduce data footprint and costs.

Seamless Administration: OneXafe is seamlessly managed by StorageCraft OneSystem™, a highly scalable management platform which eliminates operational complexity. OneSystem continuously monitors the health and status of the OneXafe platform and data environment, including real-time hardware, software and network connectivity updates. It provides a global view of an organization’s storage infrastructure, including reporting and trending of storage capacity, data reduction ratios, remote replication, SLA-based data protection policies and recovery point objectives. The entire protection lifecycle – from specifying protection requirements to ongoing management and compliance assessment – is done through policies in OneSystem.

With this launch, StorageCraft introduces three OneXafe converged models that include:

Capacity-Optimized OneXafe 4412 and 4417: Scale-out infrastructure for unstructured data, archival and video repositories along with converged data protection. OneXafe 4412 and 4417 start at less than US$14,000 for 144TB.

All Flash OneXafe 5410: Scale-out infrastructure for server virtualization, VDI, high-performance unstructured data applications and converged data protection for instant application recovery. OneXafe 5410 starts at less than US$30,000 for 38TB of flash storage.

Said Douglas Brockett, president of StorageCraft: “Mid-sized organizations are drowning in data while their legacy infrastructures are crumbling. Until now, they had the option of buying data storage and protection solutions piecemeal, while vendors expected these already resource-strapped organizations to be their own system integrator.” Brockett continued, “Their alternative was to buy limited ‘secondary only’ data platforms priced for large enterprises from vendors such as Rubrik and Cohesity, which all too often left them with complexity and high cost of ownership. For the first time ever, there is an alternative. OneXafe puts an end to vendor silos and protected markets. We deliver primary and secondary storage with integrated data protection in a single converged platform. With this, we have effectively eradicated the risk of downtime.” 

OneXafe will be available exclusively through StorageCraft’s network of authorized resellers and distributors. Visit StorageCraft.com/how-buy for more information and to connect with a reseller that can help assess your data-management needs and provide detailed pricing information.

StorageCraft Announces ShadowXafe - Next Generation Data Protection Solution for Total Business Continuity

Powerful and Flexible SLA-Driven Data Protection for Virtual and Physical Environments with Orchestrated One-Click Cloud Recovery Eliminates Downtime

DRAPER, Utah – August 20, 2018 – System downtime can cost businesses a tremendous amount of money in lost productivity and revenue. According to the Aberdeen Group, the average cost of downtime for businesses has grown to $260,000 an hour.1 As a result, organizations are desperately seeking ways to achieve improved reliability and availability in their data backup and management. In fact, according to Gartner, “By 2022, 40% of organizations will augment or replace their backup applications from what they deployed at the beginning of 2018."2 To solve this dilemma, StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced ShadowXafe, an advanced next-generation data-protection solution.

Adds Michael Linton, EVP and general manager at VLCM, a StorageCraft partner: “VLCM is excited about the release of ShadowXafe! We think this is a game changer because it carries forward the proven and tested data-protection technology of ShadowProtect and expands significantly on its functionality and ease of use.” He continues: “We are very much looking forward to the new product release because we think it will resonate well with our customers and comprehensively address many of the issues they are facing today. Protecting an organization’s data is top of mind for all IT professionals. StorageCraft’s new solutions make it easy to deploy, manage and feel confident that your data is safe.”

Designed specifically for small and medium businesses (SMBs), ShadowXafe is simple to deploy, easy to manage and reliable even under the most demanding circumstances. It ensures SLA-driven data protection and delivers powerful recovery for physical and virtual machines (VMs). Tightly integrated with StorageCraft cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), ShadowXafe provides total business continuity and orchestrated recovery with a single click. In the event of system failure, data corruption or natural disaster, SMBs can perform VM recovery in milliseconds and restore their entire infrastructure in minutes using StorageCraft's patented VirtualBoot technology.

Said Shridar Subramanian, vice president of product management and marketing at StorageCraft: “As data grows and infrastructure becomes increasingly complex, SMBs are faced with the challenge of protecting data cost-effectively and recovering it quickly. These objectives have been unachievable until today. ShadowXafe combines reliable recovery, scalability and total business continuity with ease of use and affordability.”

Key features of ShadowXafe include:

Powerful and Flexible Data Protection:

With ShadowXafe, StorageCraft delivers industry-leading agent and agentless protection managed through a single pane of glass. While agentless deployments will satisfy the SLA requirements for most VMs, agent-based protection offers the highest SLA for physical and performance-intensive VMs. With ShadowXafe, customers can recover any server, physical or virtual, regardless of size into a VM in milliseconds. ShadowXafe provides a simple and consistent experience independent of whether one is recovering from local storage, offsite or the cloud.

Management Simplicity at Scale

The data-protection workflow is managed through OneSystem®, a single and unified management platform featuring a true SLA-based protection framework. The entire protection lifecycle – from specifying protection requirements to ongoing management and compliance assessment – is done through policies. These SLA policies are outcome-based rather than process-oriented to ensure high accuracy and compliance. OneSystem offers remote monitoring and management from a single console as well as simplified discovery. These features enable data-protection workflow at scale, save time and reduce the risk of errors.

Total Business Continuity

ShadowXafe delivers total business continuity because it tightly integrates with StorageCraft’s optional disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). As a result, it offers complete, orchestrated one-click failover in the cloud, easily recovering the entire infrastructure.

Building on the heritage of StorageCraft ShadowProtect, one of the industry’s most trusted data backup solutions, StorageCraft ShadowXafe expands the company’s product portfolio of data-backup and data-management solutions.  It is available immediately exclusively through StorageCraft’s network of authorized resellers and distributors.

StorageCraft’s Vision to Disrupt Storage Silos Gains Momentum

Market Favors Single, Integrated and Intelligent Solution for Data Management and Protection

DRAPER, UT – June 15, 2018 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced strong momentum as channel partners and customers alike embrace the company’s approach to seamless and integrated data management, protection, and recovery.

“For too long, legacy big-iron vendors have encouraged IT buyers to think about their data and storage infrastructure in silos. This has created multi-billion dollar protected markets that don’t put the customer first and do very little to help as they become overwhelmed by data growth and the need to ensure its constant availability,” said Douglas Brockett, president of StorageCraft. “Those days are numbered. The market is now turning to vendors that are innovating by collapsing and unifying the entire storage management and protection stack into a single, integrated, self-protecting data infrastructure. This approach breaks down the barriers between primary, secondary and cloud storage and paves the way for a solution that is efficient, cost-effective and an order of magnitude easier to use. Our business momentum bears out this shift in market sentiment.”

StorageCraft experienced growth across all aspects of its business:

  • The number of servers protected by StorageCraft Cloud Services increased more than 100% YoY. Companies purchase StorageCraft solutions to ensure uninterrupted access to business-critical data. They achieve this by deploying StorageCraft ShadowProtect®, the company’s backup solution, which provides instant and flexible recovery capabilities. StorageCraft Cloud Services then provide an additional level of protection by enabling customers to replicate their data to the cloud. In case of a disaster, customers avoid disruption and downtime because they can recover any number and type of machines instantly in the cloud and keep them running while they bring their on-premises data back online.
  • Repeat purchases from existing customers contributed significantly to the company’s success, with more than 45% of StorageCraft OneBlox customers expanding their deployments to seamlessly scale-out their storage infrastructure from Terabytes (TBs) to Petabytes (PBs) without disrupting their business. OneBlox solves mission-critical storage challenges for VMware environments and the challenges of managing unstructured data for mid-size organizations and enterprises alike.
  • StorageCraft’s OneBlox has seen a 400% increase in distribution sales YoY. Much of this growth can be attributed to the company leveraging its expansive sales team and channel partners, which are able to satisfy pent-up demand for scale-out storage that unifies primary and secondary storage.

Said Shridar Subramanian, VP of product management and marketing at StorageCraft, “We expect to accelerate these growth indicators over the coming quarters. At VMworld 2018, we will be showcasing modern and ground-breaking solutions based on our vision of deeply integrated data protection, scale-out storage, and cloud-based recovery.”

DRAPER, Utah, May 14, 2018 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Janet O’Sullivan, channel marketing manager, Marina Brook, head of sales (APAC) and Olivia Donnell, EMEA business development director, to its prestigious 2018 Women of the Channel list.

The executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each honoree is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

O’Sullivan also has the privilege of being named to CRN’s Power 100 list where she is highlighted for her innovative initiatives and outstanding channel performance.

CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel. The Power 100 belong to an exclusive group drawn from this larger list: women leaders whose vision and influence are key drivers of their companies’ success and help move the entire IT channel forward.

As channel marketing manager, O’Sullivan worked with partners to develop strategies that successfully deliver growth to both the partners and StorageCraft. Previous initiatives led by O’Sullivan include sales and marketing boot camps that train partners to maximize their disaster recovery revenue. She started the Trailblazer initiative, a series of webinars that feature leading-light managed service providers sharing their experiences. Finally, O’Sullivan raised StorageCraft’s profile through industry awards, including European IT Software Excellence Awards and Business Continuity Awards.

Meanwhile, Brook, a results-driven executive with an enviable track record, excels in her current role at StorageCraft as head of sales, Asia-Pacific (APAC). Her duties include managing the APAC channel and expanding business into emerging markets. During the past year, Brook has led StorageCraft’s expansion in Asia and has continued growing the company’s regional business. Under Brook’s leadership, the team onboarded four new distributors in Southeast Asia, developed a series of technical training sessions to assist partners in understanding StorageCraft technology and designed a successful campaign to activate dormant partners and recruit new ones.

Donnell, the European business development director, drives business growth for StorageCraft’s portfolio of data protection and storage solutions via the channel. During this past year, Donnell closed contracts with nine new distributors, resulting in coverage in over 30 new countries in the EMEA region. She also played a major role in re-establishing relapsed relationships with distributors in four countries. Donnell currently focuses on bringing StorageCraft OneBlox scale-out storage to the EMEA market and secured inclusion of StorageCraft in the portfolio of Europe’s largest storage distributor, Hammer.

“This accomplished group of leaders is steadily guiding the IT channel into a prosperous new era of services-led business models and deep, strategic partnerships,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2018 Women of the Channel list honors executives who are driving channel progress through a number of achievements—exemplary partner programs, innovative product development and marketing, effective team-building, visionary leadership and accelerated sales growth—as well as advocacy for the next generation of women channel executives.”

“Janet, Marina and Olivia exemplify female leadership and the innovative minds at StorageCraft. Their contributions to the company, our partners, and the channel have been instrumental to our success,” said Matt Medeiros, CEO at StorageCraft. “All three actively embody the mindset of, ‘when our partners are successful, we as a company are successful.' They demonstrate this every day in their ongoing support of our channel partners and customers. All three are a great representation of what StorageCraft is all about, and I’m incredibly proud to have these talented professionals recognized.”

The 2018 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/wotc.

StorageCraft Launches New Global Partner Program to Keep Pace with Expanding Solutions Offerings

Re-designed portal, expanded training curriculum and new program benefits recognize the critical role of partners in backup and recovery

DRAPER, Utah, -- StorageCraft® partners now protect the data important to them and their clients with a wide range of intelligent business continuity solutions, such as StorageCraft ShadowProtect® SPX, the award-winning data protection solution at VMworld. A new partner program, rolling out globally, provides the training and margin benefits that reward the most productive channel partners who are discovering the many benefits of StorageCraft, including the continued introduction of new offerings to meet the changing requirements for business continuity customers.

The backup and recovery industry is changing rapidly requiring the channel to keep up with technical advances. That is why the new StorageCraft Partner Network features are so relevant. Engineering Certification is now achievable through a redesigned online curriculum. These eLearning resources will help partners stay current on new intelligent business continuity solutions, like StorageCraft Cloud Services™ for onsite to offsite cloud disaster recovery and Gillware Online Backup, which uses sophisticated analytics to identify the data that should be backed up and the data that should not. Partners will also have the opportunity to use the soon-to-be-released StorageCraft Cloud to Cloud, a data protection solution for Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps, Salesforce.com and Box.  When used in combination, these solutions provide even more efficient and rapid recovery of mission-critical data.

Additionally, eLearning resources will help partners maximize their benefits available to them, such as the tiered pricing structure for Silver, Gold and Platinum partners. The StorageCraft Partner Network features a redesigned single-login, self-service portal that allows MSPs and VARs to easily manage their StorageCraft accounts. The Network also provides benefits such as profit margin enhancements, deal registration and powerful automated marketing tools. Because of all the advancements in business continuity solutions, an unprecedented “Recovery Guarantee” will be soon be announced that sets StorageCraft apart from any other recovery solution on the market.

“StorageCraft has built a loyal 11,000-member Partner Network because we have developed strong relationships, provided meaningful benefits and delivered intelligent solutions. We understand that for the company to be successful, our partners must be successful. The new StorageCraft Partner Program reinforces that principle,” said Marvin Blough, vice president of worldwide sales.

“The program, products, and benefits associated with the StorageCraft Partner Network will help our partner community capture more market share, improve profits, and offer their customers peace of mind, while protecting mission-critical data and systems with one of the IT industry’s most trusted brands in backup and recovery,” said Bill Botti, executive vice president of the Wayside Technology Group and Lifeboat Distribution.

The StorageCraft Partner Network has four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Authorized Reseller. The tier-based features include, but are not limited to:

  • A new self-service portal that includes the ability to quickly purchase and renew StorageCraft licenses, as well as access to marketing resources.
  • Aggressive deal registration discounts that allow partners to increase their profit margin.
  • Unlimited access to sales and technical eLearning resources.
  • Discounts for resellers and government, non-profit and education organizations.
  • Discounts for onsite instructor-led classroom training.
  • Access to joint marketing development funds for events and materials.
  • Access to beta products.

IT service providers who want to learn how membership in the StorageCraft Partner Network can accelerate their business can visit www.storagecraft.com/partnerships.

Even before the arrival of the revised program, the StorageCraft Partner Network has been regarded as one of the best in the IT channel. Earlier this year, StorageCraft earned its fourth-consecutive 5-Star rating in the CRN 2016 Partner Program Guide and on Sept. 26, the company received its third-consecutive placement in the CRN Cloud Partner Guide.
