While we’ve been preparing our resellers to offer the new StorageCraft Cloud Services solution, we’ve had great opportunities to discuss with our resellers how the solution will benefit their end customers. It’s hard to know where to begin and end when this solution fills so many important disaster recovery needs, but here are a few important features of our new service that end users may appreciate the most:
Local backups are sufficient to recover from common disasters, but a site-destroying event requires a remote recovery solution if your business is to survive. StorageCraft® Cloud Services makes it easy to distribute complete copies of your systems and data across geographically disparate servers using a responsible provider you trust. StorageCraft® has provided the tools to create and manage reliable, local backup images since 2004 and now delivers a valuable offsite business continuity solution with StorageCraft Cloud Services.
StorageCraft Cloud Services—an INTEGRATED, FAMILIAR Solution
You already trust StorageCraft ShadowProtect to take backup images of your systems and data. And StorageCraft ImageManager provides the verification, consolidation and replication functionality you require to manage those backup images. Now your IT Provider can easily replicate your backup images offsite to the secure StorageCraft Cloud using the same tools you’ve used all along: ShadowProtect, ImageManager and the StorageCraft MSP Portal.
StorageCraft Cloud Services—a RELIABLE, FAST Solution
When disaster strikes, restoring mission-critical systems and data should be a matter of seconds, not minutes or hours. With StorageCraft Cloud Services, using offsite backup images to recover is quick and easy. Use StorageCraft ShadowCloud™ technology to virtualize cloud-stored backup images and create virtual machines (VMs) or use file and folder recovery to access critical data. Put StorageCraft Bare Metal Recovery technology to work to restore to dissimilar hardware or virtual environments when destroyed machines are replaced.
StorageCraft Cloud Services—a SECURE Solution
When you choose to store your backup images in the StorageCraft Cloud, you get the best in security and data center infrastructure. Encryption, SSAE 16 compliance, N+1 redundant infrastructure for power, cooling and internet access plus advanced fire suppression controls are just a few of the measures put in place to protect your backup images. Consider mirroring* images to second data center for an added layer of protection.
StorageCraft Cloud Services—a COST EFFECTIVE Solution
StorageCraft carefully studied customer needs to build a robust solution that is easily customized to fit your unique business continuity requirements and budget. Choose among three service levels ranging from simple archiving, rapid recovery of files and folders, or instant virtualization of systems and data in the cloud. Plus, with StorageCraft Cloud Services, unlike other solutions, you can economically pool all of your storage needs across users and departments.
