NORWALK, CT – Sept. 27, 2011 – StorageCraft Technology Corporation and Datto Inc. have joined forces to offer a backup and disaster recovery(BDR) solution that combines two award-winning products, StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® technology and Datto’s SIRIS.

“Providing real, day-to-day business continuity is critical for our channel partners. We’re teaming with Datto to give our MSPs and VARs a reliable solution that harnesses the power of ShadowProtect and SIRIS. Our technology is already integrated in Datto’s Viridian product offerings, but integrating into SIRIS will create a more complete solutions offering. Channel partners will benefit from having a standardized solution that simply does what it’s supposed to do,” said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development at StorageCraft.

ShadowProtect provides fast and reliable disaster recovery, data protection and system migration to get servers online as quickly as possible. It delivers rapid recovery from bare metal to dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments. It also provides the tools to centrally manage point-in-time backup images and restore them in a matter of minutes. The easy-to-use management console allows for simultaneous push installs of ShadowProtect to all Windows servers from a centralized location.

Datto’s SIRIS is a revolutionary backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution specifically designed to save MSPs and VARs time and money. SIRIS is rapidly gaining momentum in the channel and has earned ‘Best New Product’ recognition at both ASCII Chicago and Boston Success Summits this year. SIRIS dramatically simplifies and streamlines the backup process by eliminating the traditional backup chain and converts data straight to .vmdk files. SIRIS is the only BDR solution that offers instant on- and off-site virtualization, backup verification and true business continuity.

“Datto is extremely excited to partner with one of the best backup companies to enhance Datto’s SIRIS, a true business continuity solution. The third generation of Datto’s SIRIS has new features, better reliability and will look to set a new standard for BDR solutions in the channel. The synergy of StorageCraft’s technology coupled with Datto’s offerings will represent an epic win for our partners and the channel,” said Austin McChord, CEO of Datto.

Datto will offer free demos the new SIRIS device at their booth at the upcoming SMB Nation Fall Conference in Las Vegas, NV. The conference takes place at the Rio Conference Center September 29 – October 2, 2011. StorageCraft and Datto will also hold a joint webinar on October 5, 2011 at 2:00pm EST to demo and explain SIRIS’ new features and benefits.
