DRAPER, Utah, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Customers voted StorageCraft Technology Corporation among the best in the backup and disaster recovery market in two categories of the ChannelPro-SMB 2014 Readers' Choice Awards. Readers picked StorageCraft® Cloud Services™ as the Silver winner in the Best Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery category, and tabbed StorageCraft as the Silver winner in the Best Backup and Disaster Recovery Vendor category.
Even though StorageCraft Cloud Services has only been on the market since December 2012, it is not a surprise that it is quickly being recognized as one of the most reliable cloud products on the market. Earlier this year, the company announced its StorageCraft Cloud Services was experiencing a rapid user-adoption rate with near exponential growth in data stored. One reason users are flocking to StorageCraft Cloud Services is that it has maintained a 99.99 percent uptime of cloud operations.
The effectiveness of StorageCraft Cloud Services is based on the technology that powers the award-winning StorageCraft ShadowProtect® software, the most trusted data backup and recovery solution on the market today. The StorageCraft Recover-Ability Solution, which includes ShadowProtect and StorageCraft Cloud Services, and the StorageCraft Profit-Ability partner program are reasons managed service providers (MSPs) and value added resellers (VARS) choose to become partners with StorageCraft.
"The ChannelPro-SMB readers' vote exemplifies that StorageCraft products and services are synonymous with reliability and efficiency," said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development at StorageCraft Technology Corporation. "StorageCraft Cloud Services is being rapidly embraced by IT professionals and small and medium-sized businesses due to its ability to give users quick and reliable system and data recovery. Like ShadowProtect, StorageCraft Cloud Services is among the most trusted backup and disaster recovery solutions on the market."
Readers of ChannelPro-SMB were invited to participate in the channel's only SMB-focused Readers' Choice Awards by casting their votes for the most SMB- and partner-friendly products, technologies, services, programs, and professional organizations in the channel today, via the publication's website. For each category, readers were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations.
The multiple-choice survey, which provided space for write-in responses, was fielded in Q1 and Q2 of 2014 and drew participation from more than 800 VARs, MSPs, systems integrators, custom builders and IT consultants in the channel. Gold, Silver and Bronze winners are named in each category.
"Our readers are as passionate and selective about the tools they choose for their businesses as they are about the solutions they recommend to their SMB clients," said Michael Siggins, Publisher of ChannelPro-SMB. "It was gratifying to see such a high level of participation in the survey on the part of our readers, which helps us compile the only rankings of this kind for SMBs and the channel pro organizations that serve them."
