StorageCraft and Tech Data Partner on Backup and Disaster Recovery

By Laura Stotler

The Internet of Things (IoT) has facilitated an explosion in the number of users, devices and applications networking and connecting. And for every convenience and benefit this interoperability enables, it also creates countless potential points of failure. Never have backup and disaster recovery solutions and services been so important to the success and livelihood of organizations.

StorageCraft Technology Corp. specializes in backup and disaster recovery offerings for the North American market. The company has announced a new agreement with distributor and MSP Tech Data Corporation to resell the StorageCraft ShadowProtect family of offerings. The product line includes the newly released ShadowProtect SPX, offering a single BDR solution for Windows, Linux or mixed enterprise IT environments, for both virtual and physical machines.

The offering works by quickly creating sector-level backup images for Windows or Linux systems, which include the OS, applications, services, configuration settings and data volumes. Images contain all items from any machine or instance, making them available for full recovery within minutes. The Shadow Protect line also includes

ShadowProtect Server, ShadowProtect Small Business Server, ShadowProtect Virtual, ShadowProtect Desktop, StorageCraft Granular Recovery for Exchange, ShadowProtect IT Edition and StorageCraft Granular Recovery for Exchange.

"As malicious cyber activity and business-disrupting natural disasters continue to make headlines, it's more important than ever for businesses to have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place,” said Brian Davis, senior vice president, U.S. marketing at Tech Data. “Through this new agreement, Tech Data's dedicated team of data protection and security experts will help StorageCraft broaden its reach in the IT channel while helping our resellers find the right solutions for their end users."  

StorageCraft is aiming to expand globally as well as broaden its North American reach through the new agreement. Last month, the company shifted its focus to Australia with the launch of a next-gen version of its backup and disaster recovery cloud. StorageCraft Cloud Services let users customize their cloud coverage to meet their individual recovery needs. The offering enables several flexible recovery options designed to mitigate system downtime as well as data loss.
