Best-in-Class Disaster Recovery for Windows Servers

Best-in-Class Disaster Recovery for Windows Servers
Recover Quickly and Keep Business Running
with StorageCraft ShadowProtect Server and
ShadowProtect for Small Business
One of the biggest challenges companies face is how to
maximize business continuity and avoid business disruption
following a server failure. StorageCraft® ShadowProtect®
Server and ShadowProtect for Small Business provide fast
and reliable disaster recovery, data protection and system
migration to get servers online as quickly as possible.
The legendary reliability of ShadowProtect includes bare metal
recovery to the same system, new hardware or to and from
virtual environments. Protect your entire server — including
the operating system, applications, services, and your data.
ShadowProtect also includes StorageCraft VirtualBoot™
technology — to access your system as a virtual machine
(VM) in just a few minutes.
ShadowProtect and Recovery Time Objectives
Your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is the maximum
amount of time your systems can be out of commission —
from when a disruption occurs to the moment your system
is available again. Minimizing your RTO helps you avoid the
consequences of a break in business continuity.
Flexible recovery options in ShadowProtect allow you to
improve RTO by reducing the time your systems and data are
offline. ShadowProtect allows you to rapidly access individual
data files and folders or perform a full bare metal recovery
of a server in a matter of minutes. The legendary reliability
of StorageCraft Hardware Independent Restore™ (HIR)
technology makes it quick and easy to recover to brand new
hardware or even to a new VM. HIR also simplifies system
migration to new servers or hypervisors.
ShadowProtect provides the following benefits:
• Rapid recovery from bare metal, to dissimilar hardware, or
to and from virtual environments.
• Granular recovery of individual files and folders in moments.
• Boot any ShadowProtect image as a VM with VirtualBoot.
• Automatic backup of SQL, Exchange, and other critical
• Converter tool to convert to .VHD or .VMDK.
• Hardware Independent Restore technology.
• Simplified migration to new Windows servers.
• Scheduler for automatic full and incremental backups.
ShadowProtect Features
Backup—Best-in-class backup that captures
full, differential, and incremental images of
your entire system. This includes the operating

incremental backups for automatic protection
of everything on your Windows server.
Recovery—ShadowProtect rapidly recovers
a number of ways: full bare metal recovery
through a bootable recovery CD; recovery to
similar hardware; or recovery to a new system or
a VM with Hardware Independent Restore (HIR).
