significant momentum in the higher education vertical, driven by
increasing adoption of Internet2’s NET+ CrashPlan service. Code42’s CrashPlan

Since the Internet2

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

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.”
