StorageCraft, Advanced Backup Solutions Join Forces In Data Backup And Recovery Partnership

Agreement provides a complete backup and disaster recovery solution for managed service providers

One-stop shopping for data backup and disaster recovery solutions just got a boost with recently announced partnership between StorageCraft Technology Corporation and Advanced Backup Solutions (ABS). The agreement incorporates the trusted ABS Enterprise data protection and disaster recovery platform with the speed and reliability of the award-winning StorageCraft ShadowProtect software.

With this agreement, ABS has integrated StorageCraft ShadowProtect software into its line of Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) Appliances and offsite DR infrastructure. 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.

Built on leading technologies and powered by StorageCraft ShadowProtect software, ABS has set a new standard with its offsite DR product offering, designed for MSPs serving small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The lineup includes per incidence services allowing recovery points to be virtualized and hosted, but goes further with innovative High Availability solutions including a Hybrid Firewall and dedicated compute node for instant offsite DR.

“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 licensed the following StorageCraft ShadowProtect software: ShadowProtect Server, ShadowProtect Small Business Server and ShadowProtect Desktop, as well as the recently released ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange 7. In September, ShadowProtect Desktop received its third consecutive Editors’ Choice Award for Backup Software from PC Magazine, and ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange won the Best of TechEd 2013 award in the Messaging and Unified Communication category in June.

“Managed service providers that service the SMB market will be impressed with the data protection and business continuity solution that the ABS and StorageCraft partnership delivers to the market,” said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development at StorageCraft.
