StorageCraft will launch a purpose-built disaster recovery Cloud in the first quarter of 2016.
The StorageCraft Cloud Service includes portal for MSPs or administrators, and provides recovery options to mitigate system downtime and data loss. It also includes recovery through virtualised and networked systems in the Cloud.
StorageCraft general manager Indo-Pacific, Stan Nelson, described the offering as one that had been purpose-built for disaster recovery.
“This next release will provide partners with a self-service online portal that delivers flexibility in the way you recover systems and data,” he added.
The company said the system is designed to protect virtual and physical systems across Windows and Linux environments and gives users the ability to replicate and access their data anytime, anywhere and perform regular recovery tests without increased complexity.
“Partners will benefit from a predictable monthly billing model with no hidden fees such as unexpected data access fees or additional bandwidth charges. Partners will be able to select the recovery point model that best fits their requirements and pay only for the recovery points that they need,” Nelson added.
The service will have a new pricing structure with details to be announced in early 2016.
The platform is built on technology from StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect suite of software, and features virtualisation and networking of Cloud-based backups, granular file and folder access, enterprise-grade security and encryption.
The service is available in tiered options and service levels that include:
- Cloud Basic: Secure offsite storage of critical business backups with full system restore via a bare metal restore (BMR) drive.
- Cloud+: Cloud Basic features plus immediate file and folder recovery.
- Cloud Premium: Cloud+ features as well as instant virtualisation of data and systems in the Cloud.
