Code42 and Internet2 NET+ Score High in Protecting Endpoint Data for Leading Universities

Code42, 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 portfolio.

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 special data 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 anywhere
  • 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 regulatory compliance

“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.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
