StorageCraft Partners with Doyenz

October 02, 2009

StorageCraft Technology Corporation and Doyenz, Inc. today announced at SMB Nation a partnership to provide small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) easy, secure and affordable backup, disaster recovery and migration services from near line to the cloud.

This partnership will allow SMBs to replicate point-in-time backup images created using StorageCraft ShadowProtect™, and transfer them to the cloud with the Doyenz ShadowCloud™ platform. ShadowProtect, the award-winning line of disk-based backup, disaster recovery and migration technology, creates these backup images which are securely stored and made available offsite in the Doyenz ShadowCloud – either for file and folder recovery or to be restored and run as a virtual machine in the event of a production failure.

Doyenz delivers a virtualization and cloud-based managed service platform that provides Active Disaster Recovery, Failover in the Cloud and Migrations in the Cloud for the SMB market. Its partnership with StorageCraft, will make it easy for SMBs to leverage both technologies to secure their valuable systems and data. StorageCraft is a provider of innovative disaster recovery, system migration, data protection and security solutions for servers, desktops and laptops.

“We are very pleased to be offering such flexibility in our support for both physical and virtual environments through our partnership with StorageCraft,” said Ashutosh Tiwary, CEO, Doyenz. “By combining the two solutions, clients recover rapidly both onsite and in the cloud, while the trusted business advisor derives a significantly better ROI by leveraging their cloud storage dollars with additional cloud services.”

“This partnership is a complementary fit because it will allow SMBs to quickly, easily and affordably backup their servers to the cloud,” said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development at StorageCraft. “Doyenz ShadowCloud allows IT administrators to automatically save their StorageCraft ShadowProtect images in an offsite location, where they can be automatically restored as virtual machines and used for failover in the cloud, or to perform migrations, testing or upgrades. In the event of a disaster, you can failover to the cloud in a matter of minutes.”

Managing Daily Backups
StorageCraft ShadowProtect can create backup image files of a server at 15 minute intervals throughout the day, and then consolidate these incremental files with ShadowProtect Image Manager. The consolidated images are then transferred to the Doyenz ShadowCloud platform where the machine is replicated and available for disaster recovery and testing.

IT administrators can access and restore production system backups as virtual machines in a secure lab for testing and migration, or in a full failover mode for disaster recovery.

The Doyenz ShadowCloud platform provides another level of protection for IT service providers by replicating StorageCraft ShadowProtect backup images from a near line disk location – such as USB, NAS or SAN – to the cloud. By using a near line to offsite method for disaster recovery and business continuity planning, the Doyenz ShadowCloud platform and StorageCraft ShadowProtect together ensure systems and critical data are protected in all disaster scenarios.

Pricing and Availability
StorageCraft ShadowProtect Server Edition™ and ShadowProtect Small Business Server Edition™ are available from the StorageCraft Web site, through Lifeboat Distribution and through additional authorized StorageCraft distributors, managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs). Volume discounts are available.
