Agile IT Attended Training on StorageCraft ShadowProtect® Backup and Disaster Recovery Software

Agile IT Solutions first heard about StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect in 2007.  At the time, we were in startup phase of our business looking for the best products to use and recommend to our clients.

When it came to backup solutions, our experience had been with tape backup solutions or the older unreliable disk copying solutions.  These solutions focused on backing up the data and the critical business files…a process that proved to be time consuming and cumbersome and was not real-time.

So when I learned that there was a backup product that could be installed to run on the server while the users were connected, I was intrigued, to say the least, and made it a point to learn everything I could about this new way to not only back up data, but also provide the ability to recover the whole system in the event of a disaster.  This solution backed up the whole server… including the operating system, configuration settings and data files in one go.

Fast forward to present day and you will find that StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® is now a standard product that is used across almost all our client environments; and to make sure we are always up with the best configuration methods, we attend the StorageCraft training courses.

Our latest training course was in October when we attended the following two courses:

  • ShadowProtect 101 Introductory Training as a refresher on the product
  • ShadowProtect 250 Training for the latest in HeadStart Restore and VirtualBoot

VirtualBoot is a technology that provides an easy mechanism to use ShadowProtect backup files to very quickly test your backups or to perform a temporary virtualisation of a failed server as part of a Business Continuity Plan (BCP). This technology has provided Agile IT a simple cost effective disaster recovery solution for our Small Business clients across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.

The key components to our partnership with StorageCraft are:

  1. The trust in a product that we know that the whole computer is backed up and is ready for simple restoration in the event of a system failure or loss.
  2. There are now even more reasons to choose this backup method as you can use VirtualBoot technology for quick failover to a virtual server.
  3. We utilise the IT edition for our technicians’ as a tool for providing safe data migration and changes to your business.  This tool allows us to backup data from any computer to a USB drive with minimal system requirements.
  4. The team at StorageCraft do an awesome job of providing support in the event of an issue.
