StorageCraft has released a new edition of its ShadowProtect BDR solution with enhanced data integrity functionality, instant recovery support for larger volumes, and streamlined technician workflows.

Available immediately, ShadowProtect SPX 7 integrates with the Resilient File System (ReFS) technology in Microsoft Windows to detect and respond to data corruption automatically, including in unstructured items such as graphics, videos, and design files.

In addition, the system’s VirtualBoot feature, which lets users boot backup images instantly into virtual machines, now supports data sets up to 4TB in size.

Other updates include support for additional versions of the Linux operating system and interface changes designed to help service desk engineers onboard new environments and complete support tasks faster and more efficiently.

“MSPs and SMBs alike have put their trust in ShadowProtect for over a decade,” says Shridar Subramanian, CMO and vice president of global product management at StorageCraft, in a media statement. “The enhancements we have made are in direct response to their feedback and allow them to extend the impact and value of ShadowProtect by addressing additional environments for their existing installed base and, for our MSPs, to capture new opportunities.”

StorageCraft shipped a next-generation successor to ShadowProtect called ShadowXafe offering agentless as well as agent-based protection for virtual machines, among other features, in 2018. That product gained support for virtual machines running on Microsoft Hyper-V and a new subscription-priced licensing option this May.
