Take a look inside CrashPlan
backup service for Small Business

CrashPlan for Small Business has multiple unique features

Silent and Continuous Cloud Backup

Silent and Continuous

CrashPlan is your silent computer backup partner, protecting your precious files and folders in real-time. Designed to use minimal CPU power, you won't even know it's running. If your backup is interrupted, or you put your computer to sleep, CrashPlan automatically resumes when your computer becomes available again.

Cloud Backup Vs External Hard Drive

Deleted File Protection

The CrashPlan Online cloud is a regret-free zone. We keep your deleted files forever (unless you tell us not to), so no matter how much time passes after you trash a file, you can dig it out. And while this means a larger investment of resources on our part, if it helps reduce anxiety over accidentally trashing your data, it’s well worth it.

Real Time Data Backup

External Drive Backup

Have more files to back up than a single hard drive can hold? Most of us do. No problem. CrashPlan computer backup has all your external hard drives covered. You can even remove and later reattach external hard drives without restarting the backup.

Crashplan Online Backup

Backup Sets

We believe you have the right to back up all of your data. That said, not all files require the same level of backup protection. CrashPlan’s exclusive ability to create backup sets frees you to handpick and prioritize what files go where, and how often. What’s not to love about that?

Crashplan Family

Generous Retention & Versioning

In real life, there’s no living in the past. But you call the shots when it comes to your digital life. With CrashPlan, it’s easy to go back in time to a precise version of a file or folder.

Online Video Backup

Unlimited Storage

Whether you require gigabytes or terabytes of online backup, a subscription to the CrashPlan Online cloud will set you free from file type and size roadblocks. Plus, we’ll never charge you extra to restore your files. They’re yours, after all.

Most Secure Cloud Storage

Stepped-up Data Security

CrashPlan subscribers can surround their digital life with AES-256 encryption, including a private key option. This rare combination of security measures creates a virtually impenetrable “force field” around your data. What’s more, we’ve taken extra steps to ensure our data centers comply with military-grade security standards and conform to industry best practices for power redundancy, cooling and fire protection.

Automatic Back Up to Cloud

Smart Backup

The file you're working on right now is the one most in need of backup, so CrashPlan backs up your most recent files first, then makes sure you have a full backup at one destination as soon as possible. Even while you're working, CrashPlan is silently crunching numbers in the background, de-duplicating data between all your files to keep your backups as small and efficient as possible.

Data Restoration through Desktop Applications

Restore your business files quickly and easily from the CrashPlan for Small Business desktop app.
