Overall Satisfaction with Code42 CrashPlan
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.
- Automated backup
- Data retention
- Ease of installation and management
- Longer retention time- would like a year at least.
- Server support-as of now I believe it i really just file backup.
- Exchange an SQL backup options.
- Saved many hours of work recovering deleted files.
- Piece of mind that files are safe.
- Easy restoration process.
Mostly the price is what drew me to Code42 -others I have used are expensive per GB storage and difficult to manage. CArbonite was costing $1000.00 a year for 1 server with 2 TB of data. Code42 helps keep down the cost and the client spends much less time paying me to monitor backups.
Do you think Code42 CrashPlan delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Code42 CrashPlan's feature set?
Did Code42 CrashPlan live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Code42 CrashPlan go as expected?
Would you buy Code42 CrashPlan again?
I have pushed out implementation to workstations by just sending an email invitation and no real interaction is required-users just need to follow simple install instructions and default settings are adequate for almost all situations. Server deployment is a bit more involved but I have made it work. Many servers have over 1TB of data and they can have trouble finishing a daily and initial backup due to network and internet restrictions.
