StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named StorageCraft as one of its 100 Coolest Cloud Companies of 2020. This annual list honors the premier cloud technology suppliers in each of five key categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage, and software.
The CRN editorial team selects the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for the list based on three criteria: 1) originality and innovation in product development; 2) quality of services and partner programs; and 3) success in helping their customers save money and maximize the impact of their cloud computing technology.
In addition to honoring outstanding technology suppliers, the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies list enables solution providers to identify the most advanced cloud technology players. The list aids those providers in selecting the companies that can best support their cloud service needs.
The challenge that solution providers face to manage and protect their clients’ data is immense. Organizations are amassing huge data pools that are increasingly distributed. At the same time, the threat of ransomware is intensifying—the FBI states that ransomware is a pandemic in the United States.1
StorageCraft’s cloud solutions protect data from ransomware attacks and other disasters regardless of where that data lives. These cloud solutions enable StorageCraft channel partners to back up and restore client data for uninterrupted business continuity. The StorageCraft product portfolio includes multiple cloud-based data-protection options.
StorageCraft Cloud Services™ enables channel partners to replicate ShadowXafe® backups of clients’ on-premises data to a secure data center. Via the StorageCraft Cloud™, partners can do anything from file recovery to instant failover of a client’s entire network, all with budget-friendly pricing and no hidden fees. Partners who use StorageCraft’s disaster recovery cloud offering have succeeded in recovering data after a ransomware attack every time.
Meanwhile, StorageCraft Cloud Backup fills a gap in data security by backing up files created in SaaS applications. Cloud Backup protects data created in Office 365 and G Suite from user and system errors, ransomware, and similar problems. This solution is a win-win for partners and their clients—more of the clients’ data is protected, and partners have another option for recurring-revenue growth that is easy to manage for them and inexpensive for clients.
Finally, OneXafe® Solo 300 provides cloud-based anytime, anywhere data backup, protection, and recovery for small business environments with zero upfront cost. Partners can stream a client’s data directly to the StorageCraft Cloud via this plug-and-play appliance. With its simple deployment process, partners can protect single tenant and multi-tenant environments within minutes.

Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company
“The IT channel relies on cloud services as the foundation for building modern, transformational solutions. CRN’s annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Companies seeks to honor the top cloud providers, whose mission and actions support innovation in cloud-based technologies. Our team congratulates these honorees and thanks them for their commitment to leading positive change in cloud technology.”
The new 100 Coolest Cloud Companies list will be featured in the February 2020 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/cloud100.
