DRAPER, UT – APRIL 23, 2020 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named StorageCraft to its first ever 2020 Storage 100 list. In its ranking, CRN highlighted StorageCraft as one of 20 Coolest Data Protection Companies. The ranking was compiled by a panel of CRN editors, and acknowledges leading storage vendors who provide transformative, cutting-edge solutions.

StorageCraft leads in developing innovative storage and data protection solutions. In an era of explosive data growth, when it’s harder than ever to maintain uptime and data availability, StorageCraft OneXafe® delivers much-needed relief to midsize organizations struggling with data management and protection. This ground-breaking converged data platform eliminates storage and data protection silos while blurring the line between primary and secondary storage. OneXafe is affordable, near-infinitely scalable and magnitudes easier to manage than other solutions on the market.

In addition to continuous data protection (CDP) of files via space-optimized snapshots, OneXafe includes StorageCraft ShadowXafe™ next-generation data protection of physical and virtual systems. ShadowXafe features host-based and agent-based protection of virtual machines (VMs) and the ability to boot backup images as VMs in milliseconds, regardless of VM size. Seamless integration with StorageCraft Cloud Services™ enables disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) and the ability to execute a failover with one click.

With the recently announced OneXafe Solo, StorageCraft extends the OneXafe family, thus making best-in-class business continuity available to all market segments via a single technology stack. The OneXafe Solo plug-and-play appliance provides cloud-based data backup, protection and recovery for small-business environments. The appliance has a mini form factor and allows solution providers to serve small businesses with ease and healthy margins. OneXafe’s ability to stream data directly to the cloud and its flexible options for local storage deliver not just rapid data recovery, but also unprecedented workload flexibility and scalability for SMBs.

The OneXafe family raises the bar on what can be achieved to manage exponential data growth, safeguard data from disaster and prevent downtime for all businesses.

Not only do StorageCraft and the other Storage 100 companies push the boundaries of innovation, the list itself is a valuable resource for solution providers to find vendors who can guide them through the intricate storage technology market. The Storage 100 list will become an annual reference for solution providers who are seeking out vendors offering superior storage solutions in areas such as software-defined storage, data protection, data management and storage components.
