StorageCraft has been in business over thirteen years, starting as a backup software provider with its ShadowProtect offering. In 2017, it acquired Exablox and gained a scale-out storage solution with an object-based file system. StorageCraft combined these two products into its OneBlox offering. In August 2018, StorageCraft relaunched OneBlox as OneXafe, adding new features and capabilities to create a converged primary and secondary data storage and management platform.
OneXafe is delivered as a StorageCraft-branded appliance (built with industry standard server hardware and commodity storage devices) and as ShadowXafe, a software-only appliance version. OneXafe Solo was introduced in April 2020 as an option for SMBs, remote and branch office environment, and managed service provider partners. ShadowXafe 4.0 provides a unified workflow and management system that enables it to coexist with the recently introduced OneXafe Solo plug-and-protect backup and recovery appliance. As a result, customers can now mix and match software and hardware environments according to their requirements.
Using a software-defined storage architecture, OneXafe scales linearly, increasing capacity and performance as nodes are added. The OneXafe solution is built on a distributed, object-based file system running across multiple scale-out storage nodes, fully integrated with data protection services. The system uses continuous data protection to store an infinite number of immutable snapshots, allowing online recovery of previous versions of files.
StorageCraft backups are SLA-based and policy driven and include everything from the physical and virtual machines – operating system, applications, settings and data – allowing for complete recovery of the protected environment. Restores of a physical or virtual system can be made to the same system or a new one of either type.
StorageCraft OneSystem is its cloud-based and on-premises unified management capability, allowing for scalability and accessibility. It provides continuous monitoring of all OneXafe and ShadowXafe systems in an organization regardless of their location. OneSystem includes global reporting capabilities and provides proactive customer support.
