StorageCraft Touts One-Stop Backup and DR Shop


StorageCraft Touts One-Stop Backup and DR Shop

StorageCraft now not only offers cloud backup, but thanks to a deal with Advanced Backup Solutions (ABS), it has disaster recovery as well.

In fact, the storage space has been flush with partnerships aimed at giving MSPs broader offerings, such as integrating remote monitoring and management (RMM) with backup.

Like those deals, this one is also aimed squarely at MSPs.

The deal is pretty simple. MSPs can now combine StorageCraft ShadowProtect backup with ABS Enterprise disaster recovery (DR), and sell them as an integrated solution.

“The integration of StorageCraft's ShadowProtect technology into our flagship ABS Enterprise platform demonstrates our continued commitment to enable service providers with a complete data protection and disaster recovery solution that is easy to deploy and manage,” said Josh Dube, chief technology officer at ABS.

ABS has both DR appliances, for in-house use, and DR as a service (DRaaS). “ABS Enterprise offers managed service providers (MSPs) an Enterprise-class BDR solution with integrated onsite/offsite backup and restore, plus virtual failover for true business continuity. The licensed StorageCraft technology enables quick local recovery and offsite replication of data providing protection for a single server or entire IT infrastructure,” the company said.

ABS largely targets MSPs who themselves target SMBs.

The integration effort is really on the ABS side, which has licensed StorageCraft software including tools for desktops, servers, small business servers, and Microsoft Exchange.

MSPs would be well advised to look at the DRaaS market as it is set to grow at a CAGR of 55.2 percent through 2018 when it will hit $5.7 billion, according to a recent report by MarketsandMarkets.

StorageCraft’s Lower Prices

In case you haven’t noticed, there is a bit of a pricing war raging in the online backup market. StorageCraft is now trying to attract more MSPs with a 30 perent discount which is good through the end of the month.

The savings apply to new devices that tap into StorageCraft Cloud Services, and once these devices are activated, the discounts are good for the next six bills.

New partners as well as existing MSP partners both qualify for the deal.

Here what service providers and customers get with StorageCraft Cloud Services, the company said:

  • “Instant virtualization of backup images in the cloud.
  • File-and-folder access of data for smaller disasters.
  • Personal control of customer backups for fast recoveries.
  • High encryption and facility security standards.”
