StorageCraft Redefines the Gold Standard for SMB Data Recovery

StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced the immediate availability of StorageCraft ShadowProtect® SPX 7. ShadowProtect has long been the gold standard for SMB data recovery. It enables customers to meet and beat their recovery time and recovery point objectives, recover files and folders in minutes, restore failed servers, and instantly boot backup images into virtual machines using StorageCraft VirtualBoot technology. ShadowProtect SPX 7 now delivers enhanced data security, scalability, and performance, including support for new versions of Linux OS, full support for Windows Resilient File System (ReFS), GPT support, and workflow improvements.
 
The new enhancements will ensure that IT teams, who are constantly challenged to safeguard data in the face of ever-growing and evolving data environments, can effortlessly meet their data protection requirements regardless of whether they are responsible for a dozen or thousands of backups. 
 
ShadowProtect SPX 7 enhancements include:

  • Data Security: Businesses can recover files, folders, and entire systems in seconds and boot backup images as virtual machines using patented VirtualBoot technology. SPX7 now supports new versions of Linux OS and ReFS support for Windows, which offers built-in data corruption detection for all data types, including unstructured data such as high-res images, videos, and design files.

  • Scalability: From mass deployment and configuration to automated verification and alerting, ShadowProtect SPX 7 protects systems with minimal intervention.

  • Instant Recovery of Larger Volumes: Larger volume support for VirtualBoot allows partners to instantly recover larger data set sizes of >2TB up to 4TB systems (UEFI) within their customer environments.

  • Improved Installation Workflow and Productivity: Enhanced workflows will make it easier for service desk engineers to quickly onboard new environments and complete support tasks with greater efficiency. These enhancements further extend the ShadowControl central monitoring and management console's value, which provides full visibility into backup jobs' status, ensuring simple administration and powerful tools to remedy issues before they impact performance.

Tim White, General Manager, BusinessWorks said, “We have been a ShadowProtect SPX house for over 8 years. Its speed and flexibility of data recovery are at the heart of our ability to stay ahead of customer SLAs.
