Channel Partner Insight Honors StorageCraft with Top MSP Innovation Award

  • StorageCraft ShadowXafe wins in “Best Backup/Continuity Offering” category
  • By using ShadowXafe, MSPs can exceed their clients’ expectations and SLAs

DRAPER, UT – July 7, 2020 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that Channel Partner Insight named StorageCraft ShadowXafe® the ‘Best Backup/Continuity Offering’ at the MSP Innovation Awards New York 2020. The annual awards are independently judged and honor vendors, distributors, and managed service providers (MSPs) across the United States that are leading the way in managed services at a time of unprecedented disruption and change in the channel.

When selecting the Best Backup/Continuity Offering of the year, Channel Partner Insight assessed the overall ShadowXafe solution and its benefits to MSPs. The judges used multiple criteria to decide, including evolution and traction of the solution over the past 12 months, testimonials from partner MSPs, and demonstrated success in the market.

ShadowXafe next-generation data protection is the first in the business continuity category to empower MSPs to optimize standardization. MSPs understand the importance of standardization for operational maturity, and the ability to standardize a core component of their managed offering has a significant impact on the bottom line.

StorageCraft’s ShadowXafe solution protects physical and virtual workloads and provides both agent-based and host-based protection for virtual machines (VMs).

ShadowXafe radically simplifies oversight of the data protection life cycle, saving MSPs hours during deployment and management, reducing error potential, and recovering data in milliseconds. Its scalability lets MSPs manage hundreds of sites with thousands of endpoints. By supporting a virtually unlimited number of nodes, it allows MSPs to grow their client bases without increasing service desk staff.
