StorageCraft is a cloud software solution that enables you to back up and restore your systems quickly and reliably when disaster strikes, without disrupting your production site.
With StorageCraft, you can create, manage, and schedule multiple backups simultaneously, test and verify backup integrity, manage storage resources, recover individual files and folders, and stay alert about events that require attention.In 2021, StorageCraft merged with Arcserve and is now branded "StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company".
StorageCraft ShadowProtect is a cloud solution that enables you to get your systems back online in case of a disaster and protect your physical, hybrid, and virtual environments.
ShadowProtect is a single cross-platform solution that covers a wide range of services that help you prevent permanent data loss, minimize downtime, recover from disasters, and ensure business continuity. These include:
StorageCraft ShadowProtect works by creating spanned image sets by breaking a backup image file into pieces for better portability. So, for instance, you can save the image file on more than one physical device.
Then, the actual spanned image file uses a number that identifies the file’s position in the spanned image set.
StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX is the newer, updated version of ShadowProtect software. It provides the same features, such as fast and reliable backup jobs, data protection, disaster recovery with fast recovery time, and system migration, while introducing a cleaner interface, additional features, and ongoing support and upgrades.
SPX works behind the scenes to create full and incremental backups with little to no intervention from your side. With SPX, you can easily back up and recover apps, operating systems, applications, personal settings, pictures, documents, and any other essential files in case of a disaster.
The primary difference between StorageCraft ImageManager and ShadowProtect is that one is utilized after the other.
StorageCraft ShadowProtect is the tool used to create backup image files. You can also use it to store these image files in the folder you prefer.
Then, ImageManager manages these files while they’re stored in the folder. It’s dependent on the user’s policies. The tool recalls the replication, retention, and validation policies set by the user to manage the backup image files in the user-specified folder.
