StorageCraft's OneXafe Solo Debut Garners Industry-Wide Acclaim

StorageCraft announced the immediate availability of the much anticipated OneXafe Solo. The launch follows a successful global beta program that garnered strong endorsements from partners, MSPs, and distributors. OneXafe Solo provides a radically simple, anytime, anywhere, cloud-based business continuity solution in a compact plug-and-play device. It delivers enterprise-class data backup and recovery at an SMB price point.

OneXafe Solo is extremely easy to configure, deploy, and manage. Because the device can stream data directly to the cloud via a simple internet connection, there is no need for costly onsite infrastructure. It is built using the same advanced data protection technology platform that powers StorageCraft ShadowXafe. OneXafe Solo features the powerful functionality of reliable and flexible restore, SLA-based data protection and workflow, instant restore with StorageCraft Virtual Boot, and cloud-based management with StorageCraft OneSystem. Because of its ultimate flexibility, OneXafe Solo is perfectly suited for deployment in a wide range of environments, including virtual, physical, agentless (i.e. host-based), agent-based, as well as with multiple local storage options.

Thanks to OneXafe Solo, MSPs can now protect single tenant and multi-tenant customer environments within minutes. To deploy, users connect the device to the internet, and follow a few simple steps that can be completed by non-technical personnel. The appliance then ‘calls home,' and notifies the MSP that it is activated. Next, the MSP remotely sets data protection policies, including backup frequency, retention policy, target location, and replication for cloud disaster recovery. Easy setup for licensing, billing, and reporting through seamless integration with ConnectWise adds to the management and economic benefits for MSPs.

With many companies rushing to set up secure remote working environments for employees due to mandatory COVID-19 related ‘shelter in place' orders, SMBs with limited budgets and skills will be particularly challenged. MSPs have a vital role here, and OneXafe Solo can be a high-value asset in this situation. Thanks to its flexibility and simplicity, it can be deployed without any technical knowledge in a small business or ROBO (remote office/branch office) environment. MSPs can then manage OneXafe Solo remotely via StorageCraft OneSystem from anywhere through any web browser. This eliminates the need for dedicated onsite servers, time-consuming software upgrades, or further onsite customer visits.

OneXafe Solo provides MSPs and SMBs with the ultimate flexibility and a range of deployment options independent of the environment they're protecting, including VMs, physical servers, desktops, and laptops. Unlike competitive appliances in this class, OneXafe Solo does not impose a limit on the number of machines that can be supported by a single device. This expands the value, scale, and flexibility of the solution. OneXafe Solo allows MSPs to accommodate additional data protection policies and manage at scale with just a few clicks. With the same set of tools, MPSs can address multiple use cases, including physical or virtual server protection, on-premise, or direct to cloud backup, all with always-on offsite disaster recovery.

Pricing and Availability

There are no upfront costs. OneXafe Solo is billed via a monthly subscription that aligns with an MSP's business model by charging for the number of machines that are protected. OneXafe Solo is available immediately through major distribution partners. Subscription pricing starts at less than US$99/month per protected machine, with a lower price of $79/month for each additional protected machine.
