StorageCraft Technology Corporation, a provider of innovative disk-based backup, disaster recovery, system migration, data protection and security solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, and Symform, a pioneer in decentralized cloud computing services for data protection, today announced they are partnering to provide an affordable cloud backup solution for small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs).

            The companies are jointly releasing the Business Continuity Suite powered by StorageCraft and Symform to provide comprehensive backup and disaster recovery to SMBs both on-site and off-site. The Business Continuity Suite will enable SMBs to backup their data on-site with StorageCraft ShadowProtect™ technology and then transfer their backups to the Symform Cooperative Storage Cloud™.

            “The Business Continuity Suite is a perfect solution for our customers,” said Jamison West, founder and CEO of JWCS, a Seattle-based solution provider for SMBs. “We’re serious about data protection and this suite gives us comprehensive on-site and off-site coverage.”

How the Business Continuity Suite Works

            SMBs, resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) can use the Business Continuity Suite to backup all of their Windows systems both on-site and off-site. Using the award-winning ShadowProtect technology, IT administrators take regular backups of their Windows servers using ShadowProtect Server™ or ShadowProtect Small Business Server™, and desktops and laptops using ShadowProtect Desktop™. They choose an on-site destination for rapid disaster recovery in the event of a catastrophic failure, and an off-site destination via the Symform Cooperative Storage Cloud. With the Symform Cooperative Storage Cloud, SMBs and their MSPs contribute inexpensive, local storage and get valuable online storage in return. Symform handles the day-to-day management of network security and administration so that businesses can be assured their backup files are safe and readily available, following a disaster.

“The Business Continuity Suite fits a need that SMBs have – affordable, reliable backup and disaster recovery both on-site and off-site,” said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development with StorageCraft. “Our partnership with Symform is a natural fit because it fills the need for decentralized, distributed and secure backup that easily can be accessed in the event of a disaster.”

            “We’re delighted to be partnering with StorageCraft,” said Kevin Brown, vice president of sales and marketing at Symform. “The Business Continuity Suite brings together the two best products in the BDR segment and creates a solution for complete data protection – better yet, any business can afford it!”
