Data Backup Solutions
Using computer data is necessary to workplace productivity; therefore, having data backup software is vital. As an employee of the FIU community, you are invited to use our backup solution provided by CrashPlan.
CrashPlan ProE is available to all faculty and staff for at no cost to protect FIU data.
What is CrashPlan
CrashPlan is an online cloud storage tool designed to back up select files that are stored on FIU-owned PCs and Macs. Once backed up, these files are in a secure space and can be easily retrieved in the event that the original file is lost, damaged, or deleted. All files are encrypted and only the user has access to them.
How It Works
CrashPlan is designed to securely back up select files from your computer onto the Code42 Cloud, CrashPlan’s secure data warehouse. Files are encrypted before they are sent to the warehouse. Code42 and the Division of IT do not have access to your backups.
After you have installed and set-up CrashPlan, the application runs automatically and silently in the background while you use your computer. Total storage size is unlimited for a maximum of four devices, and there is no limit placed on individual file sizes. You can then access and restore these files back to your computer at any time.
