Make CrashPlan Your Backup Plan

Remember that scene from the iconic movie “Jaws” where the young woman is swimming at the beach at night and is suddenly attacked by a great white shark? The viewer knows something bad is going to happen as soon as the ominous music starts to play. If computers came equipped with a soundtrack like that, we could all be aware when their inevitable failure is imminent. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and critical data is often lost because a backup hasn’t been performed recently or at all.

You don’t have to be caught unaware if your computer crashes.
CrashPlan is the backup service we use and recommend at Cranston IT. It allows users to back up all data offsite over the internet in one convenient place. With CrashPlan you can back up any file, no matter what type or size, with 448-bit encryption to ensure that all your files are safe. Because it uses technology that works silently in the background, CrashPlan backs up your data without interfering with your daily workflow. And, it does a backup whenever you connect to the internet so you don’t have to remember to turn it on or plug in a separate drive.

CrashPlan was built to work with any size business, regardless of the number of staff members or computers, and will grow with you as your company grows. To ensure that you always have access to exactly the information you need, CrashPlan keeps digital snapshots of your data. These snapshots enable you to access new and older versions of your files. It also keeps copies of all of your erased files, which means deleted data is still only a click away.

CrashPlan is available for purchase as part of a CranstonIT Support contract. We provide ongoing monitoring of the backup as part of our service to help ensure the safety of your data, especially since life doesn’t come with a “Jaws” soundtrack. Contact us at 888-813-5558 or
