You asked and we’ve answered! StorageCraft has just recently released a new ShadowProtect edition called ShadowProtect Virtual. Even though more and more organizations have begun to make the move from physical to virtual, the requirements for solid backup and restore have not changed. ShadowProtect has always been a great fit for virtual environments because of our Hardware Independent Restore functionality, allowing the flexibility to restore images from physical machines to virtual machines, not to mention VirtualBoot, Headstart Restore, and our image converter tool – all designed to act as a bridge from physical to virtual.
With ShadowProtect Virtual, we feel like our virtual story is now complete. Major pricing adjustments have been made to ShadowProtect Virtual to offset the costs our customers are experiencing as they make the migration from physical to virtual. The really cool thing is that with ShadowProtect Virtual, licenses are tied not to virtual hosts or to processors but to the VM itself. This will allow for virtual licenses to be moved from virtual machine to virtual machine, host to host or even hypervisor to hypervisor maintaining the flexibility and portability that our customers have grown accustom to and for those running in a mixed environment with both physical and virtual machines ShadowProtect can manage both from the same console.
