DRAPER, UT--(Marketwire - June 30, 2008) - StorageCraft Technology Corporation, a provider of innovative disk-based backup, disaster recovery, system migration, data protection and security solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor for its ShadowProtect™ line of award-winning, disk-based backup, disaster recovery and system migration software. CRN's Emerging Tech list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solutions providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants.

StorageCraft ShadowProtect Server Edition™, ShadowProtect Desktop Edition™ and ShadowProtect IT Edition™ include hardware independent restore (HIR) features, allowing IT administrators to backup, restore or migrate server, desktop and laptop systems to any environment, whether physical or virtual.

"Being recognized as a CRN Emerging Tech Vendor confirms that StorageCraft is thoroughly committed to supporting our channel partners in every way possible," said Curt James, vice president of marketing and business development at StorageCraft. "The StorageCraft Reseller Partner Program is one of the fastest-growing partner programs in the U.S. Our partners have found that adopting StorageCraft solutions allows them to increase profits, reduce downtime and make their customers happy."

Emerging Technology Superiority

According to the CRN Emerging Tech Survey, the top reasons solution providers add emerging technologies include, the technology is superior to other products in the market segment; the technology compliments a solution providers' existing practice areas; emerging vendors provide better services opportunities; emerging vendors pay better attention to partners; emerging vendors offer higher margins, customers want alternative product choices; and emerging vendors have better joint marketing programs. In addition, 61 percent of solutions providers surveyed plan to increase the number of emerging technology vendors they partner with in the next 12 months.

"New and innovative vendor partners can help spur profitable new ideas that Solution Providers can use to build revenue and customer loyalty, and the CRN Emerging Tech list is where Solution Providers go to find these vendors," said Robert C. Demarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel editorial.

Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that its direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company's revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
