IT Edition Promotion

One of StorageCrafts consistently most popular promotions, has returned for another year! For all of Q2 the hugely popular IT Editions (both reseller and end-user versions) will see its usual price slash to help resellers and customers get their hands on it. If you are unsure of what the IT Edition is, it is essentially ShadowProtect on a USB drive – most commonly used for technicians on the road needing to perform full system back-ups before making any changes to a machine. You can take an unlimited number of backups across an unlimited number of customers during your subscription with a single IT Edition. Additional key benefits below;

  • No Installation, No rebooting, Unlimited use
  • ZERO footprint – back up systems without installing software
  • Bare metal recovery of Windows servers in minutes
  • Restore backup images to or from physical and virtual machines
  • Migrate backup images to new systems (physical or virtual) with StorageCraft Hardware Independent Restore™ technology.
  • Recover individual files and folders in moments
  • Use on an unlimited number of servers, desktops, and laptops during your subscription period
  • Unlimited Granular Recovery for Exchange Servers (IT Edition Pro)

Two key points! There is no limit to the number of years of subscription you can purchase AND if you already have an IT Edition and purchase under the promotional price, your existing key will be extended from when it originally expires. How awesome is that!?

We’ve already updated our systems to reflect the new pricing. Contact us at storagecraft@sofsol.co.nz if you would like to know more.

Office 365 Backup

Have customers using Office 365? Did you know Microsoft only guarantees 90% of that data for 30 days? Here are just a few reasons why a lack of backup can leave your customers in a compromising position;

  • User Error: Registered Users accidently delete or overwrite data
  • Hackers: Outsiders get into the business systems
  • Closing Accounts: Cloud App accounts are closed without regard for the data left behind
  • Malicious delete: Users purposely delete critical data belonging to a company
  • Third-party software: Data is overwritten by third-party software

If you think roughly 90% data protection for 30-days with the common risks above are manageable – don’t do anything. However, if that’s not a gamble worth taking and if you’re looking for a tool that automatically backs-up (3 times a day) with unlimited storage, provides super-fast recovery of Office 365 Objects and can be easily managed from a simple self-service portal, then StorageCrafts Office365 Backup is what you need.

The good news is, for all of Q2 – StorageCraft are offering partners, FREE Office 365 Backup. All customers that sign-up to Office 365 will have free backup until the 30th of June, 2017. As a reseller partner, this offers you the opportunity to make 100% profit until the end of the promotion for any customer you add to the service. The longer you delay, the less of the remaining quarter you have to take advantage of this offer.

Here’s what you need to know;

  • Free three-month trial available for a limited time only.
  • The trial provides you with unlimited storage and up to 100 seats per end-user account.
  • You may be prompted for a credit card number, but you will not be billed for the three-month trial.
  • If you choose to discontinue using Cloud Backup after three months, simply make a request to storagecraft@sofsol.co.nz to delete the account.
  • You can contact us to sign-up to be an MSP Partner. Current partners, you can find Cloud Backup in the Partner Portal underneath the “Managed Service Providers (MSP)” dropdown menu at left.
  • Any partners with existing Cloud Backup machines can take advantage of this offer.
  • 3 month start date is based upon the partner’s first initial client account creation date

Become a StorageCraft MSP Partner

We’ve been hitting the road recently, telling stories of the latest ShadowProtects SPX release and offering our partners the opportunity to sign-up for the StorageCraft MSP Program. The results have been fantastic, where every region we go to, we always come-back with a bunch of partner’s keen to take advantage of the MSP program to better streamline their billing cycles, cut the overheads of renewal management and take ownership of the licenses as service delivery providers. Need to create and deactivate ShadowProtect licenses whenever you want and only get charged for what’s activated? The MSP Program is for you. If you’d like to know more or are keen to sign-up (takes 5 minutes!) – contact us at storagecraft@sofsol.co.nz or talk to your respective Account Manager about your options.
