20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors

The Doyenz ShadowCloud platform can help solution providers restore servers in the cloud for low-cost disaster recovery, failover and data migration. The company allows the building and testing of servers as virtual machines using VMware's ESXi server virtualization software and StorageCraft's ShadowProtect backup software for physical environments. These servers can then be restored and deployed in minutes at the client site, or on managed hosted infrastructure from players such as Savvis or Rackspace. Customers pay the equivalent to about one hour per month of the solution provider's consulting fee, while solution providers get recurring revenue and better margins for their investment.
