The Channel Company Presents StorageCraft with XCellence Award at 2020 XChange March Conference

  • Solution providers attending XChange selected StorageCraft for boardroom excellence after watching multiple vendors share their channel stories.
  • StorageCraft recovery solutions for ransomware and other data disasters resonate with leading solution providers.

DRAPER, UT – March 18, 2020 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that it was honored with the 2020 XCellence Award for Boardroom Execution at this year's XChange conference, hosted by The Channel Company at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas.

Leading solution providers attending the XChange conference selected StorageCraft for this award in appreciation of its innovative products, services and partner programs. This award recognizes StorageCraft’s dedication to helping solution providers future-proof their business. 

At its boardroom sessions, StorageCraft presented on how to win the fight against ransomware. According to the FBI, businesses and individuals lost $3.5 billion to ransomware and other cybercrimes in 2019[1] — and that’s based on reported incidents, meaning the actual number could be much higher. The StorageCraft recovery story resonated with solution providers at XChange because they see recovery as the highest priority within the data protection category.

StorageCraft products provide multiple means for recovery from ransomware and other disasters. In particular, StorageCraft ShadowXafe™ data protection software features StorageCraft VirtualBoot™ technology—VirtualBoot enables users to perform recoveries onto a virtual platform in milliseconds. ShadowXafe also integrates with StorageCraft Cloud Services™, a cloud purpose-built for disaster recovery. Solution providers can replicate backups to StorageCraft Cloud Services, away from encrypting malware, and they can quickly recover data, systems, and even entire networks when a disaster strikes.

VirtualBoot is also available with StorageCraft OneXafe®, a converged data platform that unifies data protection and scale-out storage. OneXafe also protects data from ransomware with its continuous data protection (CDP) feature: immutable, space-optimized snapshots of data taken every 90 seconds that allow for rapid recovery of lost or damaged files.

New to StorageCraft’s line-up, the OneXafe Solo 300 plug-and-play appliance generated significant excitement during XChange boardroom sessions. This appliance streams data directly to StorageCraft Cloud Services to provide business continuity to solution providers’ smaller clients with simpler IT environments.

The Channel Company’s XChange March conference, held this year in San Antonio, Texas, from March 1–3, provided attendees with empowering insight, actionable business strategies and unmatched peer connections. Attendees learn from industry leaders, who present the latest technologies, programs and business models that are enabling solution providers to realize lasting success.
