The solution does not at present include a copy of StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect BDR solution, but may in the future.
StorageCraft plans to create additional vertically-focused solutions like this one going forward. Industries being considered for those products include manufacturing, state and local government, and education.
OneBlox products were originally designed and made by Exablox Inc. StorageCraft purchased Exablox for an undisclosed sum in January of 2017, some three months after establishing a go-to-market alliance with the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company. That transaction was a key step in a larger strategic effort by StorageCraft to reposition itself, in the vendor’s own words, as “a leader in the data management market” with primary storage capabilities, rather than a BDR solution maker.
