All Data is Not Equal

Title / Sub title

Text ..... xyz ....
Thank you for your interest in StorageCraft File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer, an innovative and powerful addition to the StorageCraft Recovery Solution. This new tehnology is available for StorageCraft’s North American partners now through the new Partner Portal. On November 1st there will be a full global rollout which will make this innovative product available through StorageCraft partners to their customers across the globe.

This new solution became available through StorageCraft’s acquisition of Gillware Online Backup. The primary purpose for this acquisition is the sophisticated analytics that intelligently identifies and separates critical data that should be backed up from non-necessary data. This approach to intelligent tiered data architecture provides rapid access to mission-critical information at times when it’s needed most, and highlights the important concept that “all data is not equal”.

The technology that drives this new wave of backup and recovery thinking is its Backup Analyzer. This is a web application that provides an intelligent review and analysis of the data on a computer. It decides what data is backed up and what is excluded. The Backup Analyzer does analysis and configuration without needing to interrupt users, and it doesn’t even require their computers to be on. It quickly separates the data into categories of what to protect, what to exclude.

It adds an additional dimension through its classification of “Unaddressed Files.” These unaddressed files are often the diamonds in rough. Once they have been identified and separated, additional rules can be defined for each file type and then applied on the fly to a single computer or even to all computers under management wherever they may be located, in one step.

An additional advantage which gives breadth to the StorageCraft Recovery Solution is the intelligence-driven file-based backup option to review and protect critical data on laptops and other computers that aren’t regularly or easily backed up to protected servers. Not only does this cover critical organizational data that is often overlooked or missed, it is also makes it significantly easier to recover files and folders through an intuitive web interface.
