ShadowControl CMD makes it easy to monitor ShadowProtect backups

DRAPER, Utah, May 23, 2012 — / — StorageCraft Technology Corporation today announced the availability of the latest addition to its family of best-in-class backup, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions—StorageCraft® ShadowControl™ CMD.

ShadowControl CMD provides remote and web-based monitoring for any server, desktop or laptop that uses StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® for its backups. Its tiered system allows for monitoring at the installation, department or organizational level. The flexibility gives the same control to an MSP monitoring multiple companies or a network administrator coordinating backups for a mid-sized enterprise with multiple locations.

“Now instead of crossing their fingers and hoping their backups are working, network and system administrators can monitor the activity of every single ShadowProtect installation in their organization. ShadowControl CMD delivers the peace of mind that comes with having a real-time, global view of what’s happening within a backup environment,” said Brandon Nordquist, vice president of product management at StorageCraft.

ShadowControl CMD operates with three status levels: Good, Warning and Critical. Administrators have the ability to set rules that will trigger notifications for a change of status on each installation of ShadowProtect within a system. The rules are adaptable for numerous configurations, whether an MSP or IT administrator needs to monitor multiple companies or a mid-sized enterprise with several locations.

In addition to the basic notification that a backup has succeeded or failed, users can create rules based on the amount of available storage space, machine status, disk errors or corruption, and the status of StorageCraft® ShadowControl™ ImageManager. Rules also apply to specific backups; for instance, administrators can receive notifications if the backup image file is unusually large. These automatic alerts are designed to attract attention to issues as they happen, preventing them from becoming a bigger problem.

Reporting from ShadowControl CMD is just as flexible. Administrators can run status reports – based on unique installations, locations, or for every system in the environment—and then send these reports to customized recipients, including individual customers.
