Data Analytics capability provides intelligent recovery architecture

StorageCraft® Technology Corp. today announced that the recently acquired sophisticated data analytics technology from Gillware Online Backup is available globally. This solution, now called StorageCraft File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer, uses analytics to identify the data that should be backed up and the data that should not, resulting in an intelligent tiered data architecture that provides rapid access to mission-critical information.

“We acquired Gillware technology not just for the file based backup technology, but also due to the advanced data analytics capability built into that offering.  Integrating its data analytics capabilities into the StorageCraft global cloud infrastructure is an immediate priority for us to realize the full potential of this acquisition. We committed to a November global release, and the fact that our engineers were able to launch such a powerful tool in that short timeframe is a reflection of their commitment and capabilities,” said Jawaad Tariq, StorageCraft’s vice president of engineering.

StorageCraft File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer reduces costs associated with backup and storage and saves precious time during the all-important recovery process by providing rapid access to mission-critical information, which allows organizations of all sizes to more efficiently protect their data while enhancing their profit margins by jettisoning high storage costs and ensuring immediate recovery.

With StorageCraft File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer, users can:

  • Efficiently manage the backup and recovery process with a web-based interface for centralized installation, deployment, configuration, monitoring and reporting.
  • Intelligently decide what data to backup or not to backup with the powerful Backup Analyzer.
  • Selectively deploy the protection level that makes the most sense for different data types.
  • Quickly execute recovery of critical data without the need to sort through unnecessary files.

Ideal Computer Systems in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been using the intelligent backup and disaster recovery solution for more than three years. “Data protection is one of the most, if not the most important, task that we face. StorageCraft File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer is a business continuity solution that allows us to easily overcome this challenge and provides peace of mind because we know that the data most important to us is backed up and can be reliably and quickly recovered,” said Bill Hall, support and implementation manager at Ideal.
