OneXafe Solo’s launched!


Great news. StorageCraft’s Plug-and-Play Data Protection solution is now available. Designed for smaller, simpler environments – it streams data directly to StorageCraft’s Cloud Services. It uses the same ShadowXafe data protection technology, within a compact form factor.


The units are easy to deploy and manage – you’ll be up and running in minutes. Simply plug it in, connect to the internet and start protecting data. Once data’s uploaded, it enables quick restores straight into Hyper V or VMware.


There is no storage limit per machine being backed up. The monthly cost per machine allows for up to 1TB per server. This is pooled across all servers attached to Solo units and any other Cloud Premium machines in your MSP portal. Other storage options besides the cloud include; a 2.5” internal disk (up to 4TB), external USB, or local servers (NFS / SMB).


There’s no charge for the actual Solo device, nor any upfront costs. All Solo units come with a 12 month minimum commit (charged monthly). Don’t worry, you can change your mind within 45-days without penalty.


StorageCraft also have NFR units for $1599 ($999 USD). The NFR appliance includes up to 3 servers for 12 months. For full offer details click here. Alternatively, contact for orders / queries.
