StorageCraft grows into award-winning global software company
DRAPER, Utah – Dec 19, 2013 – Based on its innovative and reliable products, StorageCraft Technology Corporation has grown from a small, local start-up into a global company. It is one of today’s most trusted and successful names in the backup and disaster recovery industry.
The Utah-based company began in December 2003 with only its five founders, who are all still involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. Their goal was to build the fastest and most reliable backup and disaster recovery software solutions for servers, desktops and laptops. According to many experts in the technology sector, that mission has been accomplished.
Co-founder and Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Curt James said two factors play a huge role in the success of the company. “StorageCraft is a business success story due to the efforts of talented, creative team members and the best-in-class products we produce,” James said. “StorageCraft has built strong relationships with its partners. Also, StorageCraft and its products have been repeatedly recognised by third parties and customers as among the best in the backup and disaster recovery market.”
One of the company’s early products was StorageCraft® ShadowProtect®, a software solution that allowed for easy backup and recovery of computer systems. The ShadowProtect software suite has expanded to include products for home computers, servers, Exchange email systems and virtual systems. Through the years, ShadowProtect software has earned numerous accolades from the industry, including ShadowProtect Desktop’s third consecutive Editors’ Choice Award for Backup Software from PC Magazine in September and the Best of TechEd 2013 award in the Messaging and Unified Communication category for ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange in June.
In addition to ShadowProtect, the StorageCraft Recover-Ability™ Solution for small and medium-sized businesses includes the highly regarded StorageCraft ImageManager™ tool and the recently launched StorageCraft Cloud Services™. These products have been embraced by StorageCraft’s ever-growing partner-base of managed service providers that now numbers more than 3,500 worldwide.
The success of the company has translated into steady growth, especially during the past five years. As 2013 comes to a close, StorageCraft has nearly 200 employees, with sales operations in six continents and regional offices in Australia, Japan and Ireland.
In October, StorageCraft took a major step in its growth with the opening of its new international headquarters in Cork, Ireland. This office will primarily support StorageCraft’s existing network of master distributors outside the United States.
The future is bright for StorageCraft as it enters into its second decade in an industry where customers demand excellent performance. The company founders' goals remain the development and marketing of the most reliable enterprise-level backup and disaster recovery solutions.
“We understand access to data is a crucial ingredient to the success of every business and that an extended period of computer downtime -- whether it is due to human error, malicious attack or a natural disaster -- can be calamitous to business owners and their customers,” said Jeff Shreeve, StorageCraft co-founder and president and chief executive officer. “We will continue to strive to keep our highly reliable, fast backup and recovery solutions the best in the industry.”
StorageCraft provides best-in-class backup, disaster recovery, system migration, data protection, and cloud services solutions for servers, desktops and laptops. StorageCraft delivers software and services solutions that enable users to maintain business continuity during times of disaster, computer outages, or other unforeseen events by reducing downtime, improving security and stability for systems and data.
