RELIEF IN CHALLENGING TIMES: STORAGECRAFT INCLUDES FREE 24/7 SUPPORT FOR ALL CHANNEL PARTNERS

  • 24/7 support eases the added pressure that working from home creates on channel resources
  • Business continuity doesn’t have a clock - neither should its support

DRAPER, UT, August 13, 2020 StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced it extended its channel partner program to include 24/7 global support. The 24/7 support is now a standard offering for all StorageCraft MSP subscription licenses, including ShadowProtect and the recently introduced ShadowXafe 4.0 and OneXafe Solo business continuity solutions.

By making 24/7 support standard, StorageCraft helps alleviate the added pressures that MSPs are experiencing as they help businesses adapt their IT infrastructures around distributed workforces due to COVID-19. According to Zendesk[1], request volumes remain well above pre-crisis levels, and average global support requests were up 19 percent in mid-July, compared to the same time last year.

Small and mid-sized businesses rely on their MSPs to ensure their data and IT infrastructure are always available and accessible, regardless of location. They also expect a rapid response in the event of a data or business continuity vulnerability. At the same time, MSPs are under tremendous pressure to resolve often complex customer problems while avoiding increased costs on the technical assistance needed to fix them. The extended 24/7 global channel support service from StorageCraft will help alleviate this problem.

Predictable revenue and cost models are vital for MSP business planning and profitability. By providing 24/7 global support at no additional cost, MSPs can achieve improved cost predictability in their technical support operations and deliver on their SLAs. MSPs can now simply open a support request online, and call StorageCraft for 24/7 system monitoring, troubleshooting, and problem resolution.

StorageCraft delivers world-class technical support with highly skilled support professionals. To receive the fastest response for support issues, customers simply open an online support case and include diagnostics from the relevant system(s). All pertinent information is directly transferred into the support case and provided to the support specialist. This process results in significantly quicker issue resolution. Upon resolution, StorageCraft invites customers to participate in a survey to give management insight into customer feedback and to help with ongoing product and process optimization.

Said Connie Whiteside, senior director of customer success at StorageCraft: “Business continuity doesn’t have a clock, and neither should its support. MSPs need round-the-clock global support to ensure they can meet and beat SLAs, cementing themselves as high value and critical partners to their customers. This is why we have extended our 24/7 support and made it a standard part of our MSP program.”

StorageCraft 24/7 global support service is available immediately.

StorageCraft’s ShadowXafe solution protects physical and virtual workloads and provides both agent-based and host-based protection for virtual machines (VMs).

ShadowXafe radically simplifies oversight of the data protection life cycle, saving MSPs hours during deployment and management, reducing error potential, and recovering data in milliseconds. Its scalability lets MSPs manage hundreds of sites with thousands of endpoints. By supporting a virtually unlimited number of nodes, it allows MSPs to grow their client bases without increasing service desk staff.

STORAGECRAFT UNIFIES ENTIRE BUSINESS CONTINUITY STACK WITH SHADOWXAFE 4.0

  • Flagship Data Protection and Recovery Software Enhanced to Deliver Unparalleled Performance, Flexibility, and Simplicity
  • Solutions Lets Customers Standardize Their Business Continuity Offering Across All Use Cases

DRAPER, Utah, June 24, 2020 -- StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced a significant upgrade of ShadowXafe, the company's flagship data and system backup and recovery software. Available immediately, ShadowXafe 4.0 gives users the ability to enhance and extend their business continuity solution with greater flexibility and operational efficiency while reducing cost.

Unlike competitive alternatives that force customers to choose between flexibility and simplicity, ShadowXafe 4.0 delivers both. It allows users the flexibility of managing multiple physical and virtual environments and workloads with the simplicity of OneSystem, the StorageCraft centralized cloud-based management system. By offering a 'right fit' protection platform, customers can now easily customize across specific customer Service Level Agreements (SLA), Recovery Time Objectives, and Recovery Point Objectives. 

Unified Management: ShadowXafe 4.0 provides a unified workflow and management system that enables it to coexist with the recently introduced OneXafe Solo plug-and-protect backup and recovery appliance. As a result, customers can now mix and match software and hardware environments according to their requirements.

Hyper-V, vCenter and ESXi support: With Hyper-V, vCenter and ESXi support, customers can protect large and mid-range virtual machines (VMs) with a single click, and protect high SLA VMs with ShadowXafe's agent-based and agentless solution. It also allows users to manage remote sites, instantly restore, and replicate and recover to a central on-premise, data center location, or to use StorageCraft Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) Cloud for orchestrated recovery.

Seamless integration with leading business management platforms: ShadowXafe 4.0 eliminates pain points around licensing and billing through consolidated automated licensing and billing on ConnectWise Manage and Automate business management platforms.

Said Shridar Subramanian, CMO at StorageCraft: "By significantly expanding the use case deployments of ShadowXafe, and enabling it to coexist with OneXafe Solo implementations, we give customers unmatched levels of protection, simplicity, and flexibility. For our channel partners, it instantly extends their market and revenue potential without additional CAPEX or OPEX. They also benefit from increased efficiency and productivity and a reduction in management, complexity, and training costs."

Designed specifically for SMBs, ShadowXafe 4.0 is quick to deploy, easy to manage, and reliable even under the most demanding circumstances. It ensures SLA-driven data protection and delivers robust recovery for physical machines and VMs. Tightly integrated with StorageCraft cloud-based DRaaS, ShadowXafe provides total business continuity and orchestrated recovery with a single click. In the event of system failure, ransomware, data corruption, or natural disaster, SMBs can perform VM recovery in milliseconds and restore their entire infrastructure in seconds using StorageCraft's patented VirtualBoot technology.

Supporting Quotes
James Dyke, Principal Consultant and Founder, BCDR Solutions:
“We can now mix-and-match customer requirements with the relevant StorageCraft business continuity solution without complicating workflows or management experience.

CRN Recognizes StorageCraft as a “Coolest Data Protection Company” on 2020 Storage 100 List

  • StorageCraft included on inaugural CRN Storage 100 list because it pushes the boundaries of innovation.
  • StorageCraft OneXafe and ShadowXafe bring innovative data storage and protection solutions to small and mid-size organizations.
  • Solution providers that standardize on StorageCraft experience lower costs and maximize profits.

DRAPER, UT – APRIL 23, 2020 – 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 StorageCraft to its first ever 2020 Storage 100 list. In its ranking, CRN highlighted StorageCraft as one of 20 Coolest Data Protection Companies. The ranking was compiled by a panel of CRN editors, and acknowledges leading storage vendors who provide transformative, cutting-edge solutions.

StorageCraft leads in developing innovative storage and data protection solutions. In an era of explosive data growth, when it’s harder than ever to maintain uptime and data availability, StorageCraft OneXafe® delivers much-needed relief to midsize organizations struggling with data management and protection. This ground-breaking converged data platform eliminates storage and data protection silos while blurring the line between primary and secondary storage. OneXafe is affordable, near-infinitely scalable and magnitudes easier to manage than other solutions on the market.

In addition to continuous data protection (CDP) of files via space-optimized snapshots, OneXafe includes StorageCraft ShadowXafe next-generation data protection of physical and virtual systems. ShadowXafe features host-based and agent-based protection of virtual machines (VMs) and the ability to boot backup images as VMs in milliseconds, regardless of VM size. Seamless integration with StorageCraft Cloud Services™ enables disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) and the ability to execute a failover with one click.

With the recently announced OneXafe Solo, StorageCraft extends the OneXafe family, thus making best-in-class business continuity available to all market segments via a single technology stack. The OneXafe Solo plug-and-play appliance provides cloud-based data backup, protection and recovery for small-business environments. The appliance has a mini form factor and allows solution providers to serve small businesses with ease and healthy margins. OneXafe’s ability to stream data directly to the cloud and its flexible options for local storage deliver not just rapid data recovery, but also unprecedented workload flexibility and scalability for SMBs.

The OneXafe family raises the bar on what can be achieved to manage exponential data growth, safeguard data from disaster and prevent downtime for all businesses.

Not only do StorageCraft and the other Storage 100 companies push the boundaries of innovation, the list itself is a valuable resource for solution providers to find vendors who can guide them through the intricate storage technology market. The Storage 100 list will become an annual reference for solution providers who are seeking out vendors offering superior storage solutions in areas such as software-defined storage, data protection, data management and storage components.
