Various StorageCraft cloud data protection services -- including Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) -- have suffered from performance issues since at least March 12, according to parent Arcserve's status page.

The issues include:

  • StorageCraft Cloud Services (Disaster Recovery as a Service) degradation in the United States, Canada and Ireland; and
  • StorageCraft Cloud Services via Google Cloud Platform (GCP) experiencing "unusually high demand," so StorageCraft has been throttling  some uploads to GCP Australia, GCP Germany, GCP US West & GCP US Central." As a result, some customers may see temporary replication failures, the company noted.

ChannelE2E has reached out to Arcserve seeking more information about the StorageCraft cloud performance issues, and the potential implications for MSPs and channel partners.
