Everything we do—from creating software that takes dependable disk images to joining forces with IT professionals on the ground—is designed to make fast, reliable, and complete recovery a reality.
When we opened our doors in December 2003, we built our brand on a foundation of industry knowledge, strong leadership, and a background in driver development, storage consultation, and developer toolkits. Today, StorageCraft Technology Corporation is a global company with excellent revenue growth, talented employees, a mature line of award-winning business continuity products, and a worldwide network of successful channel partners and resellers. We operate from our corporate headquarters in Draper, Utah, and international offices in Ireland, Japan, and Australia.
StorageCraft is committed to the channel distribution model because it allows our award-winning backup and disaster recovery software to be integrated into larger solutions, and because it allows our MSP (managed service provider) and VAR (value-added reseller) partners to provide better customer experience for end users. Everything we do—from snapshot to the cloud and back again—is designed to make fast, reliable, and complete recovery a reality for our channel partners and their customers.
