StorageCraft Signs OEM Agreement With VMware

Draper, Utah-based StorageCraft Technology, a provider of software for disk-based backup and data protection, said today that it is in an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with virtualization firm VMware. StorageCraft said it licensed the firm's Volume Snapshot Manager to VMware for use in VMware's Converter 3.0 product.
