Poor internet a problem for cloud-based backup

12 Oct 2011

Data and systems recovery specialists StorageCraft have launched a new backup management tool to enhance the effectiveness of its ShadowProtect software over what it calls ’normal’ internet.

Greg Wyman, vice president – APAC at StorageCraft, says the new software, ShadowControl ImageManager 5, allows companies to reliably implement remote disaster recovery using just ADSL lines, thanks to a feature called ShadowStream.

"In Australia and New Zealand, the lack of decent internet is a challenge for most companies wanting offsite or cloud disaster recovery,” Wyman says.

"Tests have shown that using the new ShadowStream technology over ‘normal’ internet typically improves performance five-fold.”

StorageCraft’s New Zealand distributors are Datastor and Soft Solutions. Go here for more on ShadowControl ImageManager.
