StorageCraft are well known for their disaster recovery’s reliability, flexibility and availability. They have excitedly released ShadowXafe 4.0 – the next evolution of their SLA driven backup technology. This significant upgrade builds on ShadowXafe’s ability to enhance / extend business continuity. It gives you greater flexibility, whilst reducing cost.


ShadowXafe is now manageable via StorageCraft’s OneSystem cloud-based management system. Joining OneXafe Solo 300, this creates the ultimate solution for both physical and virtual machines with the option to backup both to local storage or direct to StorageCraft’s cloud. Customers now have total coverage for a SLA driven disaster recovery offering – regardless of machine type.


Unified Management


ShadowXafe 4.0 provides a unified workflow and management system. This enables it to co-exist with the recently introduced OneXafe Solo plug-and-protect backup and recovery appliance. This allows for easy management from a centralised dashboard. Set policies for recovery point and time objectives with ease. OneSystem gives admins the freedom to manage, monitor and have visibility of their ShadowXafe sites from any location. This eliminates the need for dedicated servers and software upgrades. Its reporting and insights into storage capacity trends, give a simple window into an organisation’s disaster recovery system.


Hyper-V, vCenter and ESXi support


ShadowXafe 4.0 fully covers agent and agentless based backups for Hyper-V, vCenter and ESXi. Customers protect large to mid-range virtual machines with a single click. It also allows users to manage remote sites. Instantly restore, replicate and recover to a central on-premise data centre location. Alternatively, use StorageCraft’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) cloud for an orchestrated recovery. ShadowXafe’s next generation VirtualBoot technology allows for virtual machines to be restored in milliseconds – eliminating costly downtime.


ShadowXafe 4.0 is a compelling choice for MSPs needing a disaster recovery solution that is easy to deploy, manage and recover from. It enables customers to define a SLA driven DR strategy, adhering to their RTO and RPO requirements.
