Overall Satisfaction with CrashPlan

Crashplan has been implemented in our organization globally as a corporate backup solution. This addresses a number of business requirements in regards to assisting users with data recovery as well as having data available for legal compliance. With Crashplan we have been able to have a great deal more control over fulfilling our data backup requirements than other products we've tested or implemented.
  • The installation and upgrade process of the server has been one of the easiest implementations I've been a part of.
  • The ability to lockdown options to ensure that our business requirements are met for compliance.
  • The support structure is top notch. Highly responsive and knowledgeable.
  • Some functionality is not available when implementing the cloud solution vs the on premise.
  • Saves time during upgrades for users and techs.
  • Can eliminate IT from Legal Hold responsibilities.
  • Numerous users using to restore lost documents on per needed basis by themselves with the easy to use UI.
  • Lenovo Online Backup and Data Castle Red
CrashPlan demonstrated a more advanced development than other products we were evaluating. A number of them didn't compress and dedupe, which affected performance on the machine as well as the network. The controls and reporting of crashplan were way more intuitive and comprehensive than other products. Plus the recommendations from other larger customers also helped with our decision.

With remote employees, CrashPlan allows us to build out a computer locally, restore data that has been backed up, and then deliver the machine to the user. This allows for minimal downtime for a user who is upgrading.

Another scenario is that data can be backed up and put on legal holds allowing for our legal department to control for any issues.
