Next-generation StorageCraft Cloud Services lifts off in Australia
$150 credit for every new machine added to purpose-built disaster recovery cloud
SYDNEY – StorageCraft Technology today announced the launch of the next-generation version of its purpose-built backup and disaster recovery cloud in Australia.
In addition to the availability of StorageCraft® Cloud Services™, the company announced a special offer that will allow IT professionals to place their data and systems in StorageCraft Cloud Services with significant savings while not worrying about hidden fees.
The new StorageCraft Cloud Services, which allows users to customise cloud coverage to meet their unique recovery needs, includes new features such as an easy-to-use portal, and provides several flexible recovery options to mitigate system downtime and data loss. It also includes quick recovery through fully virtualised and networked systems in the cloud. In addition to the ability to recover data and IT systems quickly, StorageCraft Cloud Services has a new pricing structure without hidden fees.
Also, IT professionals in Australia who add a new machine to StorageCraft Cloud Services between February 3 and March 31 will automatically receive a $150 credit per new machine. A $75 credit will be issued for machines moved from StorageCraft’s legacy cloud to the new StorageCraft Cloud Services from Feb. 3 to March 31. All credits will be applied to the machine for the next billing cycle and will be used until exhausted. As an added bonus, StorageCraft will provide free shipping on all seed drives during the promotional period.
“Australia’s IT professionals can now have a risk-free opportunity to place their mission critical data and systems in a trusted purpose-built disaster recovery cloud,” said Stan Nelson, General Manager of StorageCraft’s Sydney-based operations. “StorageCraft Cloud Services is one of the most trusted backup and disaster recovery solutions on the market today due to its speed and reliability,”
StorageCraft has contracted NEXTDC to host StorageCraft Cloud Services, which means Australian data and systems will stay in Australia.
