Code42 CrashPlan was purchased to fill the gap with two file servers, that only backed up weekly. We have added CrashPlan to ensure that business critical data is replicated to the cloud, and has a suitable retention period to ensure that we're able to recover key files for as long as we need them.

I use Code42 CrashPlan for workstations and server file backups at many of my clients. It solves the issues of lost files and gives peace of mind that files are backed up with a good amount of retention. I manage about 15 different clients, 30 servers, and over 100 workstations.

We use Code42 CrashPlan for an enterprise-wide desktop backup solution. All employee computers have Code42 CrashPlan installed and enabled by default, which allows us to standardize the recovery process if an employee's computer is lost, stolen, or damaged. Users can self-manage their backed-up files and restore documents that may have been inadvertently deleted as well.

We use CrashPlan CrashPlan as a secondary cloud backup in addition to another on-prem Backup solution for a satellite office where a Digital Asset Management Server resides. It is perfectly capable as a primary backup solution, but in our environment, it made a great secondary layer of protection. We also used Code42 CrashPlan for certain freelance artists who choose to use Macbook and iMac machines to keep company assets secure. Code42 Crashplan has proved to be incredibly intuitive, easy to implement and restore assets with. I have set Code42 CrashPlan up at two other organizations with great success as their primary backup solution.

I use Code42 CrashPlan to constantly backup updated and new files on our backup server, for redundancy. I needed something to add to my backup plan that would present another offsite option that was not tied to my geographic area, and that was also file-oriented as opposed to snapshot-driven.

Code42 is used by a number of my clients to back up workstations, servers and NAS devices to the cloud. Most clients use Code42 to backup just mission critical machines, though some use it to back up all workstations. With Code42 set up properly, backups occur automatically every 15 min or when a file changes with no user intervention, allowing for peace of mind when it comes to protecting one's data.

Our company uses Code42 (formerly CrashPlan) daily for all company backups. We use Code42 (formerly CrashPlan) as our off-site backup system to have constant backups on-site and off-site. This ensures there is no data loss with any of our data and information across our multiple platforms and servers.

We are currently using CrashPlan as a means of data security for our end user base. It is being used across the university to back up all users who have university provided laptops or desktops. This solution allows for a safety net for our users in case of hardware failure or a malicious attack.

Capriccio Elite, LLC currently uses Code42 to back up all files across all workstations in our agency. This includes sensitive information housed on local computers and our internal file server as well as QuickBooks files. As a stand-alone, the back-ups are reliable. We choose to use Code42 as part of a daisy chain of backups. Meaning, local computers backed up to a NAS and Code42 and NAS backed up to Code42. This more than adequately solves our need to have and access back-ups of files and documents. Furthermore, if a file is deleted locally, it is easy to find and restore from the Code42 console.

Code42 provides a secure, cloud-based and on-premises backup solution for workstations, laptops, and servers. I am a user and a reseller with about 100 end users in various organizations. It is a low-profile and low-impact installation, easy to configure, and seamlessly and continuously backs up files, providing secure off-site backup with versioning and increments- allowing you to go back to pristine file versions in the case of ransomware. It protects against unintended deletes and lost or damaged computers, virus or other malware infections, and allows a company administrator access to archives in the case of legal or HR needs.

Code42 is the one and only system I use to backup my entire business in a digital sense. I am a freelance professional photographer, so I backup my images, documents, emails, etc., on a regular basis. Having a good backup system in place is crucial as hard drives fail all the time and my clients count on me to retain their products.

We use Code42 across the whole organization to provide hands-free backup to all our users. Code42 ensures that all company data contained on user devices is backed up to a secure location that can be easily restored from. The user doesn't have to do anything and the backup process runs in the background. This service prevents user files from being lost because we can't necessarily force them to copy everything to the network drives. Additionally, when users are offsite or offline, their files are saved to the local computer. Code42 backs up using any connection - wired or wireless.

We use CrashPlan to backup our remote workers. We run a hybrid configuration - our server, their cloud storage. We retain administrative controls of everything from our main office so backups can't be disabled even accidently by our end users. This has allowed us to ensure that, no matter what happens, all their files are backed up and can be restored with very little effort.

This is being used to backup our important users (President, CFO, Head Account, Head Sales person, etc), any user that would cause major problems for the company if they were hit with Ransomware or the like are protected. I've used this to restore a user when they receive new computers or a single file needs to be restored (or a few files).

CrashPlan is currently being used at our organization for all corporate laptops. Users are instructed to keep vital documents and files in one of the backed up locations on the device, and we proceed to keep those around for seven years. We implemented CrashPlan as a replacement for Tivoli CDP as we required something low-maintenance with a user friendly interface.

CrashPlan is used across the whole organization. Every employee has it installed on their laptop and we also have it installed on some some servers to back up their data files. Most employees are remote and CrashPlan allows us to back up everyone without having to host our own backup server.

We currently use Crashplan at our company. It has saved hours for some of our end users who have either had their computers completely infected to those who simply had some type of hardware failure. The ability to do this without end user intervention removes the complexity involved with restoring files for those individuals who are often on the road and or cannot be reached within a short distance of our office. The US being a large country, we ideally keep our remote users/sales team up and running as often as possible and get them up and running again after they have gone into some type of emergency.

We are currently using CrashPlan to back up all of our remote users. The reason behind bringing on CrashPlan was that we needed a method to accurately back up and have access to data from our remote associates in the event of litigation. We soon found out that we could use CrashPlan to help us refresh the hardware for all 150 of our sales associates. We built the hardware in house, installed their most recent backup and then shipped out the new hardware. When they powered on their new system, it was identical to their previous solution. Complete with documents, email archives, desktop icons and IE favorites. We have not yet encountered any real problems. The closest thing to a problem is accessing the cold storage files. It is a bit clunky.

CrashPlan is being used as a disaster recovery/data backup tool in our organization. It is being deployed to the entire company of ~6000 users. CrashPlan addresses several business needs as it is a very versatile application. The help desk primarily uses it for disaster recovery when drives fail or end users accidentally delete a file. We also use it for hardware refreshes where pulling data from CrashPlan would be much quicker than USMT. Lastly, we use it for legal holds and data forensics.
