StorageCraft ShadowProtect IT

Up until yesterday it seemed that there were only 2 major players in the V2P world, Platespin and Acronis, but then I found out that there was StorageCraft. Upon further digging I found that StorageCraft licenses their technology for OEM to VMware for the Converter Enterprise. After digging I found that the price was good $3500 list for unlimited conversions (but only one at a time) for the IT version and $179/server protected if you want to constantly protect servers (it does P2V, P2P, V2P, and V2V). I plan on demo'ing and posting my feedback.

Here is some info from the site:
