StorageCraft unifies business continuity stack with ShadowXafe 4.0

StorageCraft has introduced a significant upgrade of ShadowXafe, the company's flagship data and system backup and recovery software. Available immediately, ShadowXafe 4.0 gives users the ability to enhance and extend their business continuity solution with greater flexibility and operational efficiency while reducing cost.

Unlike competitive alternatives that force customers to choose between flexibility and simplicity, ShadowXafe 4.0 delivers both. It allows users the flexibility of managing multiple physical and virtual environments and workloads with the simplicity of OneSystem, the StorageCraft centralised cloud-based management system. By offering a 'right fit' protection platform, customers can now easily customise across specific customer Service Level Agreements (SLA), Recovery Time Objectives, and Recovery Point Objectives.


Unified Management: ShadowXafe 4.0 provides a unified workflow and management system that enables it to coexist with the recently introduced OneXafe Solo plug-and-protect backup and recovery appliance. As a result, customers can now mix and match software and hardware environments according to their requirements.


Hyper-V, vCenter and ESXi support: With Hyper-V, vCenter and ESXi support, customers can protect large and mid-range virtual machines (VMs) with a single click, and protect high SLA VMs with ShadowXafe's agent-based and agentlesss solution. It also allows users to manage remote sites, instantly restore, and replicate and recover to a central on-premise, data center location, or to use StorageCraft Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) Cloud for orchestrated recovery.


Seamless integration with leading business management platforms: ShadowXafe 4.0 eliminates pain points around licensing and billing through consolidated automated licensing and billing on ConnectWise Manage and Automate business management platforms.


Said Shridar Subramanian, CMO at StorageCraft: "By significantly expanding the use case deployments of ShadowXafe, and enabling it to coexist with OneXafe Solo implementations, we give customers unmatched levels of protection, simplicity, and flexibility. For our channel partners, it instantly extends their market and revenue potential without additional CAPEX or OPEX. They also benefit from increased efficiency and productivity and a reduction in management, complexity, and training costs."


Said James Dyke, Principal Consultant and Founder, BCDR Solutions: “We can now mix-and-match customer requirements with the relevant StorageCraft business continuity solution without complicating workflows or management experience. ShadowXafe 4.0 ensures we deliver best-in-class business continuity solutions regardless of workload and environment. In addition, we achieve a proven path for improving efficiency and optimizing margin. That is a ‘no compromise’ solution at its finest.”
