StorageCraft Technology Corp. has released StorageCraft ShadowControl v3.5, a remote monitoring and management appliance for IT environments protected by StorageCraft ShadowProtect or StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX backup and disaster recovery software.
StorageCraft ShadowProtect v3.5 offers several new features, including three remote management capabilities designed to save time:
- Push Installation – Using one of the supported discovery mechanisms, push install StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX or ShadowProtect 5 software to unprotected Windows or Linux endpoints from the ShadowControl management console.
- CSV-Based Discovery – In addition to current hypervisor-based endpoint discovery, administrators can provide a CSV-based discovery list of physical or virtual endpoints that can be used to monitor and manage with ShadowControl.
- Centralized License Management – Automatically activates newly-installed SPX or ShadowProtect 5 endpoints through ShadowControl by importing perpetual product keys into the license pool or by applying managed service provider (MSP) product keys generated through the MSP portal account.
Other new features of ShadowControl v3.5 enable users to generate certificate signing request (CSR) directly from the ShadowControl appliance, lock SPX backup jobs to prevent modification or deletion locally, and schedule appliance backup support.
