ChannelPro Network Names StorageCraft a 2018 SMB All-Star

  • SMB All-Star awards recognize vendors that had a significant impact on the SMB channel within the past year.
  • StorageCraft earned this distinction from ChannelPro Network for releasing ShadowXafe, OneXafe, and especially OneSystem.

DRAPER, UT – November 15, 2018 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that ChannelPro Network named StorageCraft a 2018 ChannelPro SMB All-Star. The only awards program of its kind in the channel, the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars represent a select group of hardware, software, and service vendors whose products, programs, and initiatives have made a significant impact on the SMB channel during the editorial calendar year.

StorageCraft earned this distinction from ChannelPro-SMB editors for releasing ShadowXafe next-generation data protection, OneXafe converged data platform and, most especially, OneSystem. The single-pane-of-glass management console for both ShadowXafe and OneXafe, OneSystem dramatically streamlines the complicated process of configuring data protection solutions for widely varied combinations of virtual and physical workloads.

With this development, ChannelPro-SMB editors determined that StorageCraft had met its criteria identifying companies that have a significant impact on the SMB channel:

  • Development of a new product or service that has market-changing potential
  • Creation of a noteworthy new channel program
  • Redefining of the company with clear partner benefits
  • Bold business moves that positively impact SMB resellers
  • A market shift from enterprise to SMB, with products purpose-built for SMBs
  • Leveraging of an acquisition to provide enhanced opportunities for partners and added functionality for their customers

The ChannelPro-SMB editorial team sees the All-Stars as being the top innovation partners in the SMB IT channel ecosystem today. The editorial team selects the vendors to award based on reporting done during the year. The list varies in size each year—it has neither a minimum nor a maximum length. The 2018 list features 19 All-Stars.

More than 30 million small-to-midsize businesses (SMBs) exist in the United States1—having a far-reaching and positive affect on the SMB community is a distinct honor.

Marvin Blough, VP WW Sales at StorageCraft
“With our new products, we wanted to do no less than disrupt the market for the benefit of our partners, their clients, and the channel as a whole. This mandate led us to create OneXafe, our converged primary and secondary storage platform, and ShadowXafe, which delivers powerful recovery, SLA-based management, and total business continuity. Both are easy-to-manage, cost-effective, scalable solutions that eliminate the need for siloed point products.”

Rich Freeman, executive editor of ChannelPro-SMB
“Given the sheer volume of new products, business ventures, and partner program rollouts ChannelPro covers over the course of a year, it takes something really special for a vendor to separate themselves from the crowd. This year’s winners all met that high standard with initiatives we believe will tangibly benefit our audience of resellers, MSPs, and IT solution providers.”
