StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect IT Edition is a popular backup and disaster recovery solution designed to provide system administrators a no-compromise, unlimited disaster recovery and data protection solution. It’s unique no-software approach is handy for restoring physical or virtual machines quickly… a must for any MSP. IT Edition 5 brings with it a variety of enhancements over its predecessor that only a managed service provider or system administrator can truly appreciate.
Version 5 brings Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 support front and center. It’s a tad behind the curve there, but most businesses haven’t been all that interested in Windows 8 for a variety of reasons. With Windows 8.1 coming this fall, which makes many concessions to traditional computer users, businesses may very well look to deploy Windows 8.1 for hybrid devices and tablets.
There’s also a slick Disk Copy feature making its debut, which gives the ability to make exact copies of a disk. That makes StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect offering a solution for easy system migrations and bare-metal recovery as well as file backup… although you can do that, too.
