Supercharge your ShadowProtect® with Probax's end-to-end intelligent platform

Storage Craft


ShadowProtect® is a standalone software product by StorageCraft® offering sector-level backup and hardware independent restores of entire volumes and systems. A leading backup and business continuity vendor in the SMB market, StorageCraft's powerful data protection offerings deliver instant, reliable, and complete data recovery and eliminate downtime.

Probax's Backup as a Service and Scout integrations for ShadowProtect have provided businesses with reliable offsite monitoring, verification and recoverable backups since 2011 and is arguably the leading external ShadowProtect cloud integration available, with thousands of businesses worldwide now replicating their critical data to our local & international data centres.

Our suite of intelligent agents & Hive dashboard monitors your clients' backups and makes management easy with automated error fixes cutting down average backup maintenance times by over 90%! This ensures that backups stay healthy, and frees up your technical team for more important project work. 


ShadowProtect® Cloud Integration

Probax serves as the offsite replication target for your ShadowProtect® backups. You can seed your base images to Probax's servers on an external drive, free of charge, and customise cloud consolidation and retention settings direct from our single-pane-of-glass Hive dashboard.

You can even select your preferred backup storage location (Perth, Melbourne, Sydney or New Jersey) whilst setting up your client accounts.

And if an urgent restore is required, simply download the required data, or arrange a collection from your local data centre.
