StorageCraft ShadowProtect Benefits


The main benefits of ShadowProtect are fast recovery, flexible, reliable recovery, set it and forget it, and disaster recovery cloud. Details of each benefit are shown below:

Fast Recovery

With ShadowProtect, you have the ability to set new benchmarks and records on how fast your recovery time is or how quick your recovery point objectives were achieved. Return of missing or corrupt files and folders can be accomplished in minutes, and you can restore failed servers and use the VirtualBoot technology to boot a backup image.

Flexible, Reliable Recovery

ShadowProtect creates image-based backups that let you perform data recovery in many ways, as well as provide automated verification of these backups so you can use them for recovery work without any problem. In addition, you can restore a complete data volume or resurrect a failed server using either physical or virtual machines and not worry about matching physical volumes to virtual ones.

Set It and Forget It

While it’s easy to manage backups to a few computers and servers of a small business, it becomes a handful when you have to deal with backups with big companies that deploy thousands of PCs, servers, and other hardware. Automated, scheduled backups ensure that the latest files, folders and types of data are constantly saved from each connected PC to a cloud server and make them available for backup duties immediately.

Disaster Recovery Cloud

For site-wide IT emergencies, having your backups available at a moment’s notice to help restore damaged data can mean the difference between timely recovery or lost opportunity. ShadowProtect’s backup software has cloud servers dedicated to disaster recovery efforts, and these can be called up anytime, anywhere upon demand.
