What is StorageCraft Image Manager?

StorageCraft offers a number of noteworthy resources. ShadowProtect and ShadowProtect SPX are cross platform image-based backup services. ShadowProtect uses a mix of production and backup storage, to ensure that businesses will always have the option of recovering files, folders, virtual machines, or even entire disks. ImageManager offers: Managed-folder structure, Advanced Image Verification, Consolidation, Retention, Throttling and Concurrent Processing, Local and Network Replication, and Pre-staged Server Recovery.

StorageCraft ImageManager is capable of automating a backup imaging system using a feature called ShadowStream replication. ShadowStream uses a high-speed connection to send copies of backup image files to a remote server. Another advanced feature for StorageCraft ImageManager is the HeadStart Restore (HSR) functionality. HeadStart Restore enables StorageCraft clients to generate incremental backups while keeping the old server running.

StorageCraft Image Manager is free software that can:

  • Verify backup images on a continual basis.
  • Consolidate image files for backups.
  • Simplify the process of setting retention policies for backup images.
  • Ensure data redundancy by replicating backups locally and off-site.

How StorageCraft Backups can be Damaged

While StorageCraft provides excellent services for enterprise data protection, no system is perfect. Through cyber-criminal behavior or human error; in certain situations, your business can still experience catastrophic data loss.

StorageCraft Backups can be Targeted by Ransomware

If you work in an industry where you use computers regularly, you have likely heard the term ransomware. This is a phenomenon where a cybercriminal uses malware to encrypt your computer, or network of computers and display a message that will probably look something like this:

Your computer has been infected with a WannaCry clone. Send 2 Bitcoin to 0x… and we will provide you with the encryption key. If you do not comply by the end of the week we will delete the entire contents of the encrypted drive.

This is a very unpleasant event (not only because it paints cryptocurrency in a negative light), but because many businesses don’t have $80,000 USD lying around that you can afford to part with.

StorageCraft Backups can be Damaged or Deleted because of Human Error

People make mistakes. Even the most competent engineers and system architects mess up on occasion. When an error occurs related to your StorageCraft backup solution there can be serious implications. If your business finds itself in a situation like this, you should not hesitate in reaching out to a professional data recovery lab like Gillware.
