Powerful things really do come in small packages! StorageCraft new OneXafe Solo 300 provides a radically simple, anytime, anywhere, cloud-based business continuity solution in a compact plug-and-protect device. It delivers enterprise-class data backup and recovery at an SMB price point.
OneXafe Solo is extremely easy to configure, deploy, and manage. Because the device can stream data directly to the cloud via a simple internet connection, there is no need for costly onsite infrastructure. It is built using the same advanced data protection technology platform that powers StorageCraft ShadowXafe. OneXafe Solo features the powerful functionality of reliable and flexible restore, SLA-based data protection and workflow, instant restore with StorageCraft Virtual Boot, and cloud-based management with StorageCraft OneSystem. Because of its ultimate flexibility, OneXafe Solo is perfectly suited for deployment in a wide range of environments - SMB, remote office branch office (RoBo) -, including virtual, physical, agentless (i.e. host-based), agent-based, as well as with multiple local storage options.
Thanks to OneXafe Solo, MSPs can now protect single tenant and multi-tenant customer environments within minutes. To deploy, users connect the device to the internet, and follow a few simple steps that can be completed by non-technical personnel. The appliance then "calls home," and notifies the MSP that it is activated. Next, the MSP remotely sets data protection policies, including backup frequency, retention policy, target location, and replication for cloud disaster recovery. Easy setup for licensing, billing, and reporting through seamless integration with ConnectWise adds to the management and economic benefits for MSPs.
MSPs can manage OneXafe Solo remotely via StorageCraft OneSystem from anywhere through any web browser. This eliminates the need for dedicated onsite servers, time-consuming software upgrades, or further onsite customer visits. Unlike competitive appliances in this class, OneXafe Solo does not impose a limit on the number of machines that can be supported by a single device. This expands the value, scale, and flexibility of the solution. OneXafe Solo allows users to accommodate additional data protection policies and manage at scale with just a few clicks. With the same set of tools, MPSs can address multiple use cases, including physical or virtual server protection, on-premise, or direct to cloud backup, all with always-on offsite disaster recovery.
Chris Cadge, sales director at Mtech UK, said: "As an early adopter, I have been extremely impressed with the simple, no-nonsense setup of OneXafe Solo and its ability to provide full protection in one small unit at a single monthly price. Setup literally took minutes. We installed a 2.5" drive in the appliance and, once we ran through the setup routines, we were able to protect our servers with regular backups to both the internal drive and to the StorageCraft Cloud Services. Its single-pane-of-glass management provides a modern, intuitive, and informative interface. I can easily see the status of my backups, and in an emergency, I can cloud-boot my server in a couple of minutes and have everything running again. This gives me the best of both worlds, with local recovery of files and folders and an off-site recovery environment in the case of a disaster."
There are no upfront costs. OneXafe Solo is billed via a monthly subscription that aligns with an MSP's business model by charging for the number of machines that are protected. OneXafe Solo is available immediately through StorageCraft distributors (Exertis Hammer in the UK).
