the leader in endpoint data protection and management, today announced
significant momentum in the higher education vertical, driven by
increasing adoption of Internet2’s NET+ CrashPlan service. Code42’s CrashPlan
for Enterprise is the only
endpoint backup solution selected for the Internet2 NET+ service
Since the Internet2
NET+ CrashPlan launch in 2013, a growing number of top universities
have selected the service to protect and manage campus-wide endpoint
data, including Boston University, Emory University, Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, University of
Notre Dame, Princeton University, Rice University, Stanford University
and University of Alabama in Huntsville.
“Notre Dame has been an Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan customer for about a
year now. CrashPlan has proven to be easy to use, and has served us well
as our endpoint backup solution of choice to protect our irreplaceable
data,” said Ron Kraemer, vice president for information technology and
chief information and digital officer at University of Notre Dame.
“Internet2’s official stamp of approval underscores our confidence in
CrashPlan, and our faculty and staff rely on it to easily access and
recover data from their computers and mobile devices.”
As a member-owned, advanced technology community of more than 250 United
States universities, Internet2
provides a collaborative environment for members to solve common
technology challenges and develop innovative solutions. Internet2 NET+
members benefit from pre-negotiated contractual terms and the assurance
that preferred solutions like CrashPlan meet the rigorous technology
standards set forth by Internet2.
“We’re thrilled with the number of members adopting the Internet2 NET+
CrashPlan service,” commented Shel Waggener, senior vice president for
Internet2. “Our communities are extremely mobile with multiple devices
per person. NET+ CrashPlan gives the peace of mind that critical
university data of all types—student, research and pedagogy—is protected
wherever it goes. And the solution's self-service access and restore
capabilities are a welcome benefit to faculty, staff and students.”
CrashPlan enterprise endpoint backup is uniquely suited to meet the
protection and disaster
recovery needs of educational institutions, including enablement of
governance initiatives such as e-discovery
and legal hold. Members of the Internet2 community and other higher
ed organizations choose and deploy CrashPlan for its:
Continuous, automatic and silent endpoint data backup
Mobile apps to provide secure access to all students and faculty from
Cross-platform support, enabling one admin to manage hundreds of
thousands of endpoints
End-to-end encryption to safeguard sensitive data
Data destination flexibility to ensure speed, affordability and
“With large groups of students and faculty consistently spread across
the world at any given time, universities have more endpoint devices in
use than nearly any other type of enterprise organization,” said Brian
Bell, president and chief operating officer at Code42. “It’s no surprise
that they are among the most vulnerable to data loss. Internet2 NET+
CrashPlan scales—like no other endpoint backup solution can—to protect
user data anywhere, anytime.”

Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
