ARCSERVE BOOSTS ECONOMICS AND ROI OF CLOUD SERVICES FOR MSPs

Introduces StorageCraft 500GB Cloud Services Basic

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN, August 24, 2021 – Arcserve, the world's most experienced data and ransomware protection provider, today announced it has enhanced StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic so that MSPs can offer best-in-class cloud backup and disaster recovery services to a broader range of customers with unprecedented ROI and profit potential. StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic now comprises 500GB backup per machine, annual retention points, and powerful cloud portal management at a $20 per machine price point, which also includes an on-premises data protection license for either ShadowXafe or ShadowProtect.

With StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic, MSPs can service a wider range of customer use cases, including small businesses and data protection for small physical and virtual workstations. Thanks to StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic, these use cases are now economically viable. MSPs can also pool storage across multiple machines for maximum flexibility and ROI. Unlike typical cloud services providers that add fees for features such as bringing customer data in and out of the cloud or recovering files in the event of failure, these features are standard in StorageCraft Cloud Services.

Said Jerome Wendt, President and Founder of DCIG, LLC: "While more and more customers are asking for cloud backup services, they have struggled to solve their needs with a solution that is robust, flexible, easy to manage, and profitable. StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic solves this problem. Features such as annual retention that offer up to 20 recovery points mean that they can configure backup and recovery around specific needs. In addition, the central and easy-to-use self-service portal makes management remarkably simple and efficient and further adds to the ROI."

Said Shridar Subramanian, CMO at Arcserve: "As a 100% channel-focused company, we are committed to ensuring our partners can solve all their customers' data protection and business continuity with ease and agility, regardless of their size, complexity and location. Enhancing the economics and ROI of StorageCraft Cloud Services does this. It will also help MSPs gain access to more organic and new revenue opportunities."

1 Gartner Says 80% of B2B Sales Interactions Between Suppliers and Buyers Will Occur in Digital Channels by 2025

CRN Features Two StorageCraft Leaders on its 2021 Women of the Channel List

  • CRN’s annual list recognizes the unique strengths, vision, and achievements of female leaders in the IT channel
  • Honorees from StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, are Olivia Donnell and Jeannine Edwards, both for the third year in a row
  • Edwards also included on CRN’s Power 100 List

DRAPER, UT, June 8, 2021 – StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Olivia Donnell, EMEA sales director, and Jeannine Edwards, senior director of channel marketing, to the highly respected Women of the Channel list for 2021.

The women honored on this year’s Women of the Channel list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives, and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication, and channel advocacy.

CRN named Edwards to its 2021 Power 100 list, a distinguished subset of elite leaders chosen from the annual CRN Women of the Channel list. The CRN editorial team chose Power 100 honorees based on their contributions, expertise, and dedication to supporting IT channel success. The annual Power 100 award recognizes a select group of incredible women who have gone above and beyond, inspiring their peers through their leadership and unwavering commitment to the success of their partners, customers, and the entire IT channel.

During the pandemic, Edwards saw the shift to a remote and distributed workforce as an opportunity for partners to differentiate themselves in the business continuity category with remotely configurable data protection technology. She and her team created a business resiliency education and deployment strategy to empower partners to do precisely that with StorageCraft OneXafe® Solo. This data protection device can be shipped directly to their SMB customers’ locations, turned on, connected to the internet, and remotely configured to protect data within minutes. As a result, partners had the right technology available to best serve their customers’ data protection needs during an exceptionally challenging year.

In 2020, Donnell was promoted to oversee the entire EMEA sales team. During the pandemic, her primary role was to ensure her team members were safe and quickly established in a work-from-home routine that met their needs and the company’s. Being comfortably situated, her team could then focus on partners, ensuring rapid response to their changing needs. Under Donnell’s leadership, EMEA business grew, and partner training and certifications were four times what they were the prior year.

STORAGECRAFT BRINGS ULTIMATE COMBINATION OF FLEXIBILITY, MANAGEMENT, AND SECURITY IN CLOUD & HYBRID DATA BACKUP AND RECOVERY

Latest Versions of ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo to offer

  • Seamless Integration with Leading Cloud Storage Providers
  • Single Cloud-Based Management Console
  • Enhanced Security Through Two-Factor Authentication

DRAPER, UT, May 20, 2021 – StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced the general availability of the next major releases of ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo, the company's flagship data and systems backup and recovery software, and its plug-and-protect backup and recovery appliance. Both solutions now support multi-cloud environments with enhanced security features to give customers improved flexibility, performance, economics, and assuredness from their cloud and hybrid data backup protection and recovery investments.

As SMBs increasingly embrace multi-cloud strategies and adopt different cloud providers according to price-performance for specific workloads, a single, centrally managed data protection environment that is easy to manage and simplifies workflow is vital. Simultaneously, the constant threat from cyber-attacks requires companies to ensure they can recover applications and data quickly if and when disaster strikes.

To address these needs, StorageCraft has enhanced ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo to provide a one-stop data backup and recovery solution that can handle all the complexity of major and multi-cloud environments through a single, seamless management console.

Choice, Flexibility, and Scale: ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo now allow partners and customers of StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, to leverage multiple cloud storage providers for data backup and replication. Both solutions provide the option to back up and support native replication into third-party clouds, including GCP, AWS, Azure Blob Storage, and Wasabi. As announced on May 11, 2021, both ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo now support DRaaS natively on GCP.

Improved Cloud-Based Central Management: ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo support a consolidated public cloud-hosted web console that relies on secure protocols, enabling complete management and monitoring of all data protection to ensure data is available from anywhere, anytime, and highly secure.

Heightened Security: Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is now integrated into the StorageCraft OneSystem, a cloud-based management platform for ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo. It provides an extra layer of security to help safeguard customer data for organizations of all sizes, regardless of complexity or location.

Said Shridar Subramanian, CMO at Arcserve: "The flexibility that ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo now bring to hybrid and multi-cloud data environments creates unprecedented flexibility, scale, and economic advantage. Offering customers the ability to use and choose between existing cloud storage providers to backup, recover or replicate is game-changing."

Said Michael Welts, CMO at Wasabi: "The trend of companies moving data to the cloud has gone into overdrive as a result of the pandemic and shift to working from home. Combining the predictability and economics of Wasabi hot cloud storage with the simple yet powerful assurance of StorageCraft data backup and instant recovery creates a compelling offering for channel partners focused on the SMB market." 

Pricing and Availability
The new releases of both StorageCraft ShadowXafe and OneXafe Solo are available immediately through StorageCraft's network of authorized resellers and distributors.

STORAGECRAFT, AN ARCSERVE COMPANY, PARTNERS WITH GOOGLE CLOUD TO DELIVER UNMATCHED PUBLIC CLOUD BUSINESS CONTINUITY SOLUTION VIA GOOGLE CLOUD MARKETPLACE

  • Advanced data back-up, protection and recovery by StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, benefits from Google Cloud global scale, elasticity, and data security
  • StorageCraft DRaaS now available on the Google Cloud Marketplace

DRAPER, UT, May 11, 2021– StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced a partnership with Google Cloud to offer its StorageCraft Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) on the Google Cloud Marketplace. The award-winning StorageCraft DRaaS solution has been explicitly architected to take advantage of the power of Google Cloud. Available immediately, StorageCraft DRaaS, acclaimed for its recovery capabilities, including one-click orchestrated recovery, is now available and optimized on the public cloud via the Google Cloud Marketplace. It advances the company's multi and hybrid cloud strategy to bring its extensive breadth and depth of solutions for all customer data environments regardless of size, complexity, and location.

The launch of StorageCraft DRaaS on the Google Cloud Marketplace follows months of collaboration between the two companies to ensure the solution is architected and fine-tuned to optimize the benefits of advanced cloud data management, protection, and recovery cloud services with Google Cloud infrastructure for speed, elasticity, and scale. The integration and optimization process were facilitated by the fact that Google Cloud opened a Salt Lake City data center in 2020. StorageCraft's headquarters' proximity makes it an ideal location to cooperate, test, and roll out expanded services.

Customers stand to realize significant advantages in data security with StorageCraft's purpose-built, advanced DRaaS that delivers orchestrated failover for complete business continuity, plus the operational efficiency, data security, elasticity, and scalability of Google Cloud and its hyper-scale data centers.

By taking advantage of this DRaaS offering on the Google Cloud Marketplace, customers benefit from:

  • Enterprise-grade protection: DRaaS by StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, enables organizations to meet their business continuity and disaster recovery readiness objectives by allowing them to spin up their entire infrastructure in a single click with its pre-staged orchestration to virtualize machines in the cloud. It then leverages Google Cloud to speed replication rates and instantly restore data remotely, allowing IT organizations to meet stringent RPO/RTO requirements. 
  • Simple, Powerful Customization and Management: Customers will continue to benefit from StorageCraft's simple self-service portal that puts them in control of their data. The portal gives Solution Providers and customers alike one-stop access to highly customizable and easy-to-manage cloud-based disaster recovery with 24/7 monitoring to ensure RPO and RTOs are always met.
  • Consumption-driven billing: StorageCraft DRaaS offers consumption-driven billing that is fully integrated with the Google Cloud Marketplace.

“We are pleased that StorageCraft is available on the Google Cloud Marketplace,” said Amy Bray, Global Head, Google Cloud Marketplace at Google Cloud. “Organizations can deploy StorageCraft with ease and, as they scale, quickly leverage the StorageCraft DRaaS capabilities of data security, recovery and management as they migrate critical workloads and data into the cloud.”

Said Shridar Subramanian, CMO at Arcserve: "Our customers are going to be extremely excited with this addition to Arcserve's ongoing hybrid data center strategy. It not only provides greater scale, elasticity, compliance, and data security options, it also changes the economics of data recovery, making cloud based DRaaS significantly more attractive than in-house implementations."

Pricing and Availability: DRaaS by StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, is available immediately through StorageCraft's network of authorized resellers and distributors and on the Google Cloud Marketplace.

GLOBAL STUDY REVEALS NEED FOR GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF DATA SECURITY RESPONSIBILITY AS CLOUD ADOPTION GROWS

  • Rapid Adoption and Increased Reliance on Cloud Services for Data Recovery
  • Misconception Around Cloud Data Security Responsibility
  • Concerns Around Cloud Data Compliance and Security

Draper, UT, April 8, 2021 - StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced the first in a series of findings of its annual independent global research study on experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers (ITDM) around data protection and recovery. The research reveals a widespread increase in cloud adoption because of COVID-19. It also indicates a widespread misconception around the responsibility for backup and recovery of data in the cloud and a lack of confidence in the security of data held by public cloud service providers.

When asked if COVID-19 had impacted cloud adoption,

  • 47% of respondents noted accelerated adoption of cloud services for data management. 
  • 59% of respondents confirmed increased use of cloud backup services. 
  • 39% of respondents stated they increasingly rely on cloud services for data recovery.
  • 56% said they had increased the use of the cloud for IT infrastructure (IaaS).

Despite the accelerated adoption of cloud services, the study showed a lack of clarity and confidence regarding the protection and recovery of data stored in public clouds.

  • 45% believe data backed up to a public  cloud (AWS, Azure, Office365, etc.) is not as safe as data backed up on-premises. This concern was particularly prevalent in organizations with over 1PB of data, where 69% believe data backed up to a public cloud is not as safe as data backed up on-premises.
  • 44% of respondents believe the protection and recovery of data stored in public clouds is the cloud provider's responsibility instead of the data owner. 

The widespread misconception (44%) that the protection and recovery of data stored in public clouds is the cloud provider's responsibility is concerning. Companies transitioning to cloud services must understand that data held in public cloud services and applications is a shared responsibility between the data owner and the cloud provider.

When asked about the major barriers to adopting cloud data services, 40% said regulations and compliance, 43% said lack of control over data, and 48% said security concerns hindered their adoption.

Said Shridar Subramanian, CMO at Arcserve: "Organizations are increasingly looking to cloud services as part of a hybrid data center strategy to help manage the cost and complexity of their data environments which have typically become even harder to manage with the move to remote working." He continued, "It is encouraging that many plan to increase data security and back up investments with their MSPs. The expertise MSPs bring to the table will ensure these organizations will have well-defined and tested data protection and recovery plans in place."  

Thirty-eight percent of respondents said they plan to increase spending with MSPs on backing up on-premises data in the cloud, 37% on cloud backup of remote offices, and 18% on cloud DRaaS."

About the research conducted by Dimensional Research: A total of 709 qualified individuals completed the research study. All participants had budget or technical decision-making responsibility for data management, data protection, and storage solutions at a company with 100 - 2,500 employees. The survey was fielded in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and the United States.

  • Innovation and technology further advanced through combined IP portfolio and accelerated investment into R&D

Eden Prairie, MN and Draper, UT – February 24, 2021 – Arcserve, the world's most experienced data and ransomware protection provider, and StorageCraft, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to merge. Once completed, the merger of the two highly complementary companies will form the most comprehensive global provider of data management and protection solutions for organizations spanning from SMBs to the Fortune 50. The merger will solve the growing market need for a single source to manage and protect workloads throughout the data center, cloud, SaaS applications, and at the edge. With expanded geographic reach, the industry’s broadest product portfolio, flexible business models, and magnified innovation footprint, the merged companies will bring extensive market and revenue opportunities for MSPs, VARs, and distributors.

Addressing challenges facing end-users in every size organization
Combining capabilities will create a comprehensive product suite that addresses the vast majority of use cases and business continuity challenges. With total global data storage projected to exceed 200 zettabytes by 2025 and cybercriminals expected to attack a new business every 11 seconds in 2021, organizations will be able to choose one vendor for a single, agile ecosystem to manage data workloads in all environments and to protect and recover data in the event of cyberthreats, human error, and natural disasters.

Organizations of all sizes will be able to rely on a single partner to protect current and evolving data infrastructures with a solutions-based portfolio that spans DRaaS, BaaS, SaaS protection, hybrid and converged data management, direct to cloud data protection, and workload migration to the cloud - or any other infrastructure.

Significant value for MSPs, VARs, and distributors
As two 100% channel-focused organizations come together, the merger will create meaningful new revenue opportunities for partners worldwide. The significantly expanded portfolio will simplify the selling process with solutions, services, and support from one vendor while also providing diversification to help partners expand addressable market share, scale revenue, and create margin opportunities. Flexible perpetual license and subscription business models will further optimize market and revenue opportunities and enable friction-free commerce.

Accelerated investment for future infrastructures and next-generation data workloads
Arcserve and StorageCraft will continue to fully support and invest in their existing solutions. In addition, both companies will increase investments in R&D and combined IP, which will strengthen both companies’ product portfolios. Channel partners and end-users alike will see rapid innovation for continuous data availability across every platform and location. This will enable a seamless evolution from current to next-generation infrastructures and data workloads, including hyper-converged, multi-cloud, containers, edge infrastructures, and next-generation cloud data centers.

Following the merger, StorageCraft will be branded 'StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company,’ and the merged company will be united under the leadership of CEO Tom Signorello, the current CEO of Arcserve, and president Douglas Brockett, the current president of StorageCraft.

Availability
The combined Arcserve and StorageCraft solution portfolio will be available through channel partners and distribution.

Tom Signorello, CEO, Arcserve
"Companies in every sector are looking to modernize their infrastructures amid unabated cyber threats and global changes that have altered the way they must protect and manage data. This merger will place us at the forefront of filling a massive market gap by supporting all workloads in every environment with one ecosystem. No longer will organizations require ad-hoc solutions that only add to the complexity they are trying to solve. We will be better placed than any other vendor to be ready as new workloads arise and infrastructures evolve – providing certainty today and in the future."

Matt Medeiros, Chairman and CEO, StorageCraft
"The combination of StorageCraft's leadership in the SMB and MSP market combined with Arcserve's strength in the enterprise and VAR ecosystem, is game changing for the data protection and recovery market.”

Douglas Brockett, President, StorageCraft
"Following the completion of the merger, the scope and scale of our combined businesses will allow us to bring a dramatically broader portfolio of solutions to market. At the same time, it expands the resources with which we can serve our customers and ensures we grow hand in hand with our channel partners."

Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC
“The combination of Arcserve and StorageCraft is very intriguing because it combines complementary hardware and software platforms. Arcserve’s data protection and data security portfolio, when combined with StorageCraft’s object-based data protection appliance platform, opens up solution possibilities beyond data protection and recovery. A holistic approach to data protection, security and secondary uses is the sort of solution that many IT organizations are considering.”

Jerome Wendt, President & Founder, DCIG LLC
“StorageCraft and Arcserve coming together as a single company will very likely disturb the status quo of the data backup and protection industry. Independently, they represent well-run organizations with market-leading products that play in complementary markets. As a unified entity, it means that, for the first time, organizations have access to solutions that span from the enterprise to the smallest office – all from a single source. It gives organizations new freedom and potentially better choices in how they implement data management in their environments – plus a powerful and less complicated roadmap for future data workloads. This merger is likely a win for everyone, except maybe their competitors.”

Jeff Richards, Director of Solutions & Services, Paragon Micro
"When two 100% channel-centric data protection leaders merge, it can only be good news for the channel. The unified portfolio of best-in-class solutions is highly attractive to us. There is minimal product overlap, which makes the potential for adding services and expanding our market and revenue opportunity pretty frictionless.”

CRN Names Andy Zollo of StorageCraft a 2021 CRN Channel Chief

  • CRN’s annual list recognizes vendor executives who demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth

DRAPER, UT – February 18, 2021 – 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 Andy Zollo, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, to its 2021 list of Channel Chiefs. The prestigious CRN Channel Chiefs list, released annually, recognizes leading IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth.

The 2021 Channel Chiefs are prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs, and partnerships. CRN’s editorial staff selects all honorees based on their dedication, industry prestige, and exceptional accomplishments as channel advocates.

A long-standing leader in the industry, Zollo joined StorageCraft in 2016 as Vice President EMEA Sales. He was promoted to run international sales in 2019. After shifting international sales to a high-growth trajectory that year, he was promoted in January 2020 to oversee worldwide sales.

Since his arrival, Zollo has propelled the expansion of StorageCraft’s channel business and driven innovation in StorageCraft sales programs and processes to make sure channel partners achieve optimal success from their StorageCraft partnership. Among his accomplishments in 2020, Zollo reorganized the North American sales team to ensure each team member is directly targeting channel success. He also implemented a global Partner Success Team to make certain partner satisfaction is top-of-mind and that the channel “voice” is heard and acted on.

Over the past year, Zollo and his team have kept a close eye on partners as they have been dealing with unparalleled challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and a more widely distributed workforce. Zollo’s team identified several ways to help partners thrive in tough times and then led the charge to roll out free 24/7 support for MSP subscription licenses; implement two pandemic relief programs for partners; pilot a pipeline creation program for partners; and provide incentives and promotions for OneXafe® Solo to help make partners aware of the benefits to them and their customers.

New in 2020, OneXafe Solo is a plug-and-play data protection appliance that streams data directly to a cloud purpose-built for disaster recovery. OneXafe Solo further enhances StorageCraft’s unified data protection platform—partners can standardize on StorageCraft and create tailored solutions to meet every customer’s data protection, disaster recovery, and data management needs. In doing so, partners maximize their profitability and minimize overhead and operational costs.
