Reliable Backup and Disaster Recovery for Windows and Linux Systems

No two organisations have identical IT environments or business needs, but what is consistent across all organisations is the need to protect themselves from unplanned downtime. Organisations need complete confidence that their entire IT environment - whether it’s Windows or Linux, virtual or physical - is fully protected and can be reliably recovered in minutes. Since you never know what resources will be available to you in a disaster, the flexibility to be able to recover anywhere, anytime, every single time is unquestionably vital. 

Fast, flexible recovery starts with a solid backup. StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® SPX provides comprehensive backup protection, reliable recovery, and system migration in a single, cross-platform solution that supports Windows and Linux systems on virtual and physical machines.

How it works:
• Install ShadowProtect SPX on any server, desktop or laptop you wish to protect. SPX quickly and efficiently captures your entire system including the operating system (OS), applications, settings, services, and your data.

• Take regularly scheduled backups as often as every 15 minutes. Create custom full and incremental backup schedules to best fit your needs.

• Choose where to store your backup files. Write backup images to any internal, removable, or network storage locations.

• Easily monitor and manage your Windows and Linux backup jobs in the same SPX user interface.

• Rest assured you have multiple options to recover onsite and offsite in minutes. Recover entire systems or specific files and folders - all from the same backup image.

Protect your office backups offsite in a customisable disaster recovery cloud.

Local backups are sufficient to recover from most common disasters, but a site-wide disaster can be the difference between business continuity and business failure. In today’s volatile, fast-paced technology landscape, organisations must have the ability to recreate themselves quickly and reliably should disaster strike their site or internal systems.

Why is offsite disaster recovery so important?

Many organisations have an onsite backup plan already in place. They take regularly scheduled backups and store those backups in a secure data location on-site where they can quickly recover their data. But if a flood, fire, or any type of other unimaginable disaster should strike the business site, a local backup strategy is unlikely to help

What's the solution?

StorageCraft® Cloud Services™ provides a highly customisable disaster recovery cloud that you can manage through an easy-to-use, self-service online cloud portal. You can tailor your coverage to meet your unique recovery and budget requirements while having access to data anytime, anywhere, with instant failover in a cloud built specifically for disaster recovery.

Whichever method is right for you, the important thing is protecting and securing your backups offsite, and having the peace of mind that comes from knowing your business is safe and secure should a more catastrophic type of disaster occur.

Capability Overview

Combining low setup, management, and overhead costs with high flexibility to meet your offsite disaster recovery needs. StorageCraft® Cloud Services™ is available in 3 Service Levels tailored to fit your needs: Cloud Basic, Cloud +, and Cloud Premium services. You also can select pre-configured Retention Tiers (or even customize your own) that best meet your recovery point objectives (RPOs). You only pay for the recovery points you need in the cloud while having as many recovery points as you’d like onsite.
