Image Based Backups
As a Managed Service Provider for StorageCraft, we are very excited to introduce and offer ShadowProtect 4. We were confident that ShadowProtect was already the best image based backup software on the market, and with the introduction of version 4, it’s substantially better. Here are some of the feature that make us LOVE it.
Full Image Based Backup - Everything is backed up… Everything. And fast too. Image based backups are the fasted way to backup everything on a system. It does not matter how many files, what type they are, etc. The operating system, programs, settings, patches, updates, and of course critical data, are all backed up.
Virtual Machine Support -Physical to Virtual (P-V), Virtual to Physical (V-P), (P-V-P), VHD, VKMD, VMWare, VirtualBox, Hyper V, whatever. When it comes to recovery, many times its a Virtual Machine that bridges the gap and keeps your business running. Support for this technology is important. Moreover, any backup (full or incremental) can be mounted and booted in seconds using Oracle’s VirtualBox. This takes “verifying your backup” to a whole new level.
FAST Recovery Time (RTO) -ShadowProtect was already fast, but with their new patent-pending technology called Head Start, downed systems can be online in minutes.
Unmatched Recovery Points (RPO) - With realistic backups at 15 minute or less intervals, losing data is no longer an issue. Even on high use enterprise systems, we are seeing 5-15 minute backup intervals that actually work. This kind of RPO would otherwise be left only to a handful of companies that could afford disaster recovery solutions costing hundreds of thousands yearly to implement and maintain.
Efficient and QUICK incremental images – Due to its sector based technology, incremental images are lightning fast. Compared to file based backups, incremental backups are completed in seconds or minutes, NOT hours or days like file based solutions.
Granular Exchange Support - Know as Granular Recovery for Exchange (GRE), Exchange backups are now simple, even the big ones. Until now, properly backing up and actually getting consistently successful backups for Exchange was a challenging, especially as the Information Store grew past 100GB. Not only can ShadowProtect backup Exchange with ease, with the addition of GRE, it now has all the desired management tools to migrate and restore at the mailbox or even mail item level. Users can be extracted from exchange and PST files can be created with exactly the data desired. Data mining can also be performed using the powerful search capabilities.
Truly Offsite Capable – With the release of the new Image Manager, incremental or collapsed daily images can be synced to Offsite Computer Backup’s highly secure data center facility. These images can be managed at our location creating collapsed daily, weekly, monthly or full backups per the customers requirements. Furthermore, we perform periodic validity checks to ensure proper collapsing and continued data integrity. Contact us to discuss our new ShadowProtect Replication Services.
Fair Pricing – Enterprise grade backups solutions at affordable prices. Being a registered Managed Service Provider for StorageCraft allows us to license ShadowProtect at a low monthly cost, eliminating capital expenses. Our software lease options also include new versions for free, full support and maintenance making the lease option a smart choice for your budget. See our Pricing Page
