MSPs can finally protect their client’s data effectively and affordably

Seattle, WA, August 24, 2010 – Symform, Inc. (, developer of the Symform Cooperative Storage CloudTM, today announced the “StorageCraft + Symform Zero Cost Online Storage” Promotion. The promotion will enable StorageCraft resellers to move their clients’ data to the Symform Cooperative Storage CloudTM at no additional cost for six months.

“We understand that due to this tough economy it’s very difficult for Managed Service Providers to offer new solutions to clients – even if it’s a necessary solution to protect their precious data,” said Kevin Brown, VP, Sales and Marketing of Symform. “Small businesses are simply reluctant to try new technology. With this offer there are no excuses regarding the protection of client’s data.”

To take advantage of this offer, MSPs simply need to install a new Symform node at a client location and then provide Symform with proof of a ShadowProtect license for that system. There is no limit on the number of free nodes a MSP can receive.

“Symform recognizes that ShadowProtect is an ideal solution for creating image based backups, but what you do with those backups to move them off-site is extremely important,” said Brown. “Many MSPs will implement error-prone tape rotations or use expensive online backup services which charge per GB fees. The Symform cloud-based backup solution allows them to trade inexpensive local storage for valuable online storage in the Symform Cooperative Storage Cloud.”

In an effort to ensure the success of StorageCraft resellers, Symform is also offering a free ShadowProtect-Symform whitepaper, a free “Using ShadowProtect with Symform” training video, and unlimited free one to one consulting with a Symform engineer, including designing a customized backup strategy and schedule for each and every client, if necessary.

“Using a solution like the Symform Cooperative Storage Cloud makes perfect sense for StorageCraft solution providers who want to give their SMB customers both near-line and off-site backup and disaster recovery,” said Curt James, VP, Marketing and Business Development at StorageCraft. “With this promotion, Symform is making that very affordable for StorageCraft resellers who are using the ShadowProtect line of award-winning backup, disaster recovery and system migration technology to protect their Windows servers, desktops and laptops.”

The Symform Cooperative Storage Cloudâ„¢ enables small businesses to implement a backup and disaster recovery solution that is more secure, ten times cheaper and ten times faster than traditional online backup services. The company was founded on the realization that millions of small businesses have computers with an excess of inexpensive storage capacity, power running 24×7, and unlimited Internet bandwidth – especially nights and weekends. The Symform team has developed software that aggregates this relatively unreliable and un-trusted capacity over the Internet and transforms it into a secure and reliable global storage system. The heart of Symform’s software is a proprietary technology called RAID-96â„¢.
