    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 Introduces New and Enhanced ConnectWise Integration; Helps Boost MSP Margins

    StorageCraft Demos New ConnectWise Professional Services Automation (PSA) Integration and Remote Management Monitoring (RMM) Plug-In Automation Nation – Booth 107/206, June 18-20, 2018, Orlando, Fla.

    DRAPER, UT – June 18, 2018 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced new certified integrations with ConnectWise, a software company that connects technology teams to the solutions, services and resources necessary for success. StorageCraft PSA Integration and RMM plug-in are available immediately via the StorageCraft partner portal and Automate Solution Center respectively. MSPs will experience improved speed, scale and efficiency from the ConnectWise platform as they manage and run their data protection businesses using StorageCraft solutions.

    StorageCraft for ConnectWise Manage (PSA) Integration saves MSPs time and money. StorageCraft partners can sync StorageCraft licenses and cloud usage to their PSA accounts for automated billing. The PSA Integration maps the number of StorageCraft MSP licenses and Cloud storage usage to PSA customer accounts and agreements. It allows MSPs to push changes either on-demand or on a schedule from StorageCraft to their ConnectWise Manage system. It also generates a summary mapping report to detail which StorageCraft accounts have been mapped.

    StorageCraft Plug-in for ConnectWise Automate (RMM) increases operational efficiencies. Partners can manage and monitor all their data protection from within the ConnectWise Automate Control Center. The RMM plug-in allows MSPs to remotely install/uninstall, license and update the SPX backup agent on any machine. Backups can be easily configured remotely and on the fly. Status, errors and warnings are also remotely monitored all from inside the Automate Control Center. 

    Douglas Brockett, President, StorageCraft
    “We have more than a thousand partners using StorageCraft PSA Integration and RMM ConnectWise plug-ins. It was very clear that this community expected more from StorageCraft in terms of the frequency and sophistication of updated plug-ins. Judging by the response from our Beta program, the community agrees that we have delivered. We have made significant investments in ensuring our partners experience the best possible integration with the ConnectWise platform. We will continue to invest and innovate with regular updates to our existing solutions as well as new product offerings.”

    Jason Magee, COO, ConnectWise
    “StorageCraft has been a long-term DRaaS partner with ConnectWise. With these updates, our partners can now deploy, configure, manage and monitor the latest StorageCraft solutions with the Automate plug-in, while new automation features in the Manage integration give partners the speed and efficiency needed to scale their business unhindered by operational processes.”

    Kenneth Varrone, CTO, Network Solutions & Technology
    “Participating in the StorageCraft beta program has been extremely rewarding. The responsiveness of the StorageCraft development team was excellent, and the results speak for themselves. The Automate plug-in to StorageCraft is radically improved. For example, the speed, ease and efficiency that we can now deploy, monitor and maintain our backups is exceptional. This means we can redirect considerable resources away from back-end issues into customer engagement that adds value, revenue and margin.”
