ShadowProtect Virtual delivers affordable, flexible backup solutions for hybrid environments
With so many different combinations of physical systems and virtual environments in today’s storage strategy, it is important for IT professionals to use a disaster recovery solution built to handle systems and data backup in any environment in order to ensure business continuity.
StorageCraft Technology Corporation, a provider of innovative backup, disaster recovery, system migration and data protection solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, has released StorageCraft® ShadowProtect®Virtual™, which allows the user to back up systems and data on any Windows system and recover it to any kind of environment: a virtual machine, physical hardware, or in the cloud.
“ShadowProtect Virtual offers the flexibility needed to maximize existing IT resources – with options for recovery to the same system, another virtual machine or even a different hypervisor – ensuring limitless business continuity. Our highly competitive pricing makes system backup and disaster recovery affordable for hybrid environments in any organization,” said Brandon Nordquist, vice president of product management at StorageCraft.
The Advantages of Virtualization
ShadowProtect Hardware Independent Restore™ (HIR) technology is agnostic to the physical hardware or virtualization platform, allowing for maximum flexibility within the infrastructure. Instead of licenses priced per host or per socket, ShadowProtect Virtual licenses feature pricing per virtual machine (VM), versatility that allows the user to deploy ShadowProtect wherever needed in a hybrid environment.
“The IT industry is now fully into a second wave of server virtualization deployments where we’ve moved beyond test and development environments to putting production, mission-critical workloads in a VM. Organizations are looking for robust solutions with broad hypervisor support to protect their growing VM deployments,” said Dave Russell, Vice President of Storage Technologies and Strategies at Gartner.
ShadowProtect Virtual includes support for VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, and Oracle VirtualBox.
