Arcserve ShadowControl

IT disaster recovery management and monitoring solution from a single console

Overseeing a Disaster Recovery Solution Across Multiple Clients or Sites Has No Shortage of Challenges

Full visibility into the status of backup jobs and tools to make administration as easy as possible are critical to success. That’s where ShadowControl® disaster recovery management and monitoring solution comes in.

ShadowControl delivers a central monitoring and management console for Arcserve ShadowProtect® and Arcserve ImageManager™ operations. With complete visibility, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing your backup jobs are running smoothly and that you can remedy any issues before they affect business operations.

Features and Benefits of ShadowControl

Push Install

Manage machine discovery, push installation (for the ShadowControl agent, ShadowProtect, SPX, and ImageManager), and activations of licenses, all through your ShadowControl appliance console.

Remote Monitoring

Know what’s going on with your backup jobs without needing to visit every endpoint in your organization.

Policy-based Management of Backup Jobs

For endpoints running SPX, configure many endpoints’ backup jobs at once rather than wasting time and effort configuring each separately.

Hypervisor Integration

With an optional plugin, monitor and manage ShadowProtect backup jobs from within your VMware or Microsoft hypervisor.

Configurable Alerts

For the systems you monitor, define the rules that determine an endpoint’s status (Good, Warning, or Critical) and be alerted when a change occurs.


Schedule and receive regular status reports so you and your clients can see the state of the disaster recovery IT environment.

Use ShadowControl disaster recovery management and monitoring solution in these scenarios:

  • Viewing the status of your Arcserve recovery solution, across an organization or several organizations, through a single dashboard
  • Monitoring the health of your recovery solution and receiving alerts when something isn’t right
  • Using ShadowControl policies to simplify the configuration of alerts and backup jobs instead of having to individually configure them for each endpoint
  • Controlling ShadowProtect and ImageManager installations and ongoing updates from a central location
  • Managing ShadowProtect product keys and seamlessly activating product installations using any licensing option currently offered
