StorageCraft releases ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange

Disaster recovery software provides IT administrators a simple way to restore or migrate Exchange mailboxes, e-mail messages and attachments

SYDNEY, February 2. StorageCraft Technology Corporation (www.storagecraft.com), a provider of innovative disaster recovery, system migration, data protection and security solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, today announced the availability of StorageCraft ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange™, the latest version in the award-winning ShadowProtect™ line of backup and disaster recovery software for Windows systems and data.

ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange gives administrators the ability to restore individual Exchange mailboxes, e-mail messages or e-mail attachments, minimising downtime following a major or minor crisis.

In conjunction with ShadowProtect Server™ or ShadowProtect Small Business Server™, administrators can restore entire mailboxes or specific information in each mailbox – such as individual email messages and attachments or specific files and folders – without the need to restore the entire Exchange database. They can opt to restore the messages and information directly to their production Exchange server or to a new or existing PST file. Restoring an Exchange mailbox or e-mail message takes moments, rather than hours to complete.

“Managing Exchange can be a difficult task and there is a great need for a tool that allows small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) the ability to do this without hiring an Exchange administrator,” said Deni Connor, principal analyst with Storage Strategies NOW, a research firm focusing on storage technologies. “Technology like ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange can allow resellers and SMB administrators to provide quick recovery of a lost e-mail message or migration to a new Exchange server without the need to hire Exchange administrators.” ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange also allows IT professionals to rapidly migrate to a new Exchange server. Moving users from the old server to the new version of Exchange is a simple ‘drag and drop’ procedure.

In addition, searching Exchange backups – EDB files – to find messages based on specific criteria is a simple process. Administrators may use the search capability in ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange when e-discovery or other corporate necessity requires a search of the Exchange database based on keywords, messages sent to or from a specific domain, messages within a specified time period or messages with specific subject matter. ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange will simplify the task of restoring, migrating or searching an Exchange database. It will save hours of work and help administrators maintain business continuity.

“I had two different customers that deleted all of their contacts in Microsoft Exchange 2003 and 2007,” said Caleb Roberts, vice president at Data1st, Inc. “We were able to use ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange to export all of their contacts from the last ShadowProtect backup image to a PST file. I was then able to import them back into the users’ Exchange accounts. The process was simple and my customers had minimal down time.”

Additional Features ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange also simplifies Exchange management by quickly creating reports on Exchange usage. Administrators can run reports on messages by mailbox, messages by date, attachment statistics and domain statistics. Reports may be viewed or saved for later use. ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange has the following benefits:

• Recover mailboxes, e-mail messages and e-mail attachments to an Exchange server or a PST file. • Restore or migrate individual mailboxes quickly and easily. • Search individual mailboxes or e-mail messages for specific keywords based on user-specified criteria. • Migrate users to a new version of Exchange with ease. • Generate comprehensive reports for simplified Exchange management.

“Our partners and customers need an easy way to rapidly recover individual Exchange mailboxes or e-mail messages without performing a second backup,” said Greg Wyman, StorageCraft Regional Director Asia Pacific. “ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange uses an existing ShadowProtect backup image of your Exchange server to perform brick-level recovery of entire mailboxes or e-mail messages and attachments. You don’t waste resources performing two kinds of backups and the whole process is quick and simple.”

Pricing and Availability ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange is available as a bundle with ShadowProtect Server or ShadowProtect Small Business Server, or as an upgrade for existing ShadowProtect Server or ShadowProtect Small Business Server licensees.

ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange is available from authorized StorageCraft distributors and value-added resellers (VARs). Volume discounts are available.
