Overall Satisfaction with CrashPlan

CrashPlan is being used by the entire organization. It addresses a need we had to ensure we had internet-based/cloud backup to eliminate the reliance we previously had on a VPN. It allows the company to safeguard data in a central [location] as the company is highly mobile and connects less and less via VPN as time goes on.

Pros

  • Constant backup. Backups are scheduled to run every 15 minutes.
  • Very WAN/Internet friendly. Only those bits and pieces of changed files are backed up instead of the whole thing.
  • Backs up over the internet. No VPN is required.
  • The company, all the way from senior leadership to support is phenomenal!

Cons

  • Reporting could use some help.
  • Faster and more accurate data restores has lead to increased productivity.
  • Customers are much more happy with IT as CrashPlan is much more self-service oriented than the prior solution.
  • Loss of data has been reduced drastically.
Cost, ease of use, and the overall attentiveness of Code42 to our needs made CrashPlan the clear choice.
We haven't ever found a situation where CrashPlan is less appropriate. It is well suited for any company, especially those with a highly mobile workforce that rarely connect back to the corporate network.
