DATA BACKUP: Data Backup to Avoid Disaster Can Be Easy


Recent Gauteng Business News

Businesses of all sizes face unique challenges when it comes to data backup or restoring, searching or migrating their data. With words like business continuity and disaster recovery being bandied about on a regular basis, companies are aware of the importance of avoiding business disruption. However, initiating backup and disaster recovery solutions can often be expensive and time consuming, and may bring productivity to a screeching halt.

There are solutions available that can make the process simpler, less time-consuming, and far more cost effective. One of these is ShadowProtect from StorageCraft, a set of products that provide innovative backup, disaster recovery, system migration and data protection solutions for servers, desktops and laptops. The benefits that ShadowProtect offers, as well the value it provides, made adding it to the range of products provided by local distributor Phoenix Software an essential business solution.

“Because technology continues to advance at an alarming rate, the need for backing up your data is rising every day. For businesses who store their most necessary and cherished information on their machines and servers, backing up is not only a good plan; it is necessary. Fortunately, performing a backup doesn’t have to be tricky, as long as you’re using the best software. ShadowProtect is the best software in its class, and is all you need to perform a high-quality enterprise backup,” explains Simon Campbell-Young, CEO of Phoenix Software.

The Best Data Backup Software Around

“ShadowProtect has been helping people the globe over to backup data for many years, and most experts concur that there is no software out there that can outdo ShadowProtect in both functionality and simplicity. What makes ShadowProtect special compared to other backup software is that it can execute a backup in a way that is very efficient, to the extent where it requires nearly no work on the part of the user. These features and benefits, together with its great reputation, made ShadowProtect a perfect addition to our strong range of enterprise software solutions.”

The ShadowProtect range comprises ShadowProtect Desktop, which provides fast and reliable disaster recovery, data protection and system migration to get desktops and laptops online as quickly as possible; ShadowProtect Server, which includes bare metal recovery to the same system, dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments, and protects an entire server environment including the operating system, applications like Microsoft Exchange and SQL, and data; ShadowProtect ImageManager, which allows users to consolidate point-in-time backup images on a daily, weekly and monthly basis for simplified management; ShadowProtect IT Edition, which provides a snapshot in time of a particular computer or server, and is a powerful tool for any IT professional to revert back to a point in time in the event something goes wrong with a task or change; and ShadowProtect Virtual, a tool to manage today's hybrid computing environments.

The Importance of Data Backup Software

“Without having good backup and recovery software on your side, the chances that you could potentially end up in a tough spot are far too high. ShadowProtect is not only easy to use, but can help to guard your servers and machines so that worry about data-loss becomes a thing of the past,” says Campbell-Young. “Information-loss on a grand scale can be enough to put a company out of business, and is often considered to be one of the biggest concerns of those who keep all of their important information in one area. We are helping all of our customers prevent that eventuality with a simple-to-use and cost-effective data backup solution.”
