CrashPlan PROe provides a flexible architecture which is able to meet the needs of any enterprise. This article details the various architecture options for CrashPlan PROe.
Which CrashPlan PROe architecture is best for your organization depends on several factors:
Contact sales to discuss which architecture best fits the needs of your organization.
CrashPlan PROe offers three main architecture options: public cloud, private cloud (including Managed Private Cloud deployments), and hybrid cloud deployments.
In the public cloud architecture, your data is stored at one of several secured Code42 data centers. Your data remains protected by CrashPlan PROe's multi-layered security protocols.
In the private cloud architecture, your data and encryption keys are stored at your organization's own data center. Private cloud deployments offer the same industry-leading support from Code42 as public cloud deployments.
A Managed Private Cloud is a type of private cloud deployment in which Code42 continuously monitors the performance, reliability, and status of your backups. A Managed Private Cloud requires use of a managed appliance. Contact the Code42 sales team for details on using a Managed Private Cloud in your organization.
In the hybrid cloud architecture, your data is stored at two locations: your organization's own data center and one of several secure Code42 data centers.
Your encryption keys are stored in a master server in your organization's control.
Recommendation: Public Cloud. This is by far the easiest way to get workers backing up immediately and with very few IT staff. The Public Cloud allows all workers to back up and restore from anywhere.
Recommendation: Managed Private Cloud. It is critical to the business that its sensitive intellectual property is tightly controlled and protected, especially from theft or breach, and the Managed Private Cloud ensures that data is stored securely on the internal network. Additionally, the management services included with the business's managed appliance support the reliability and availability of backup operations in each location. The IT department in New York is able to manage the agency's internal backups for all three offices.
Recommendation: Hybrid Cloud. While most users can back up to data centers on the same continent, users in the growing Asia Pacific region cannot. Backups and especially restores from across the ocean would be painfully slow. The Hybrid Cloud deployment allows US and European users access to an internal data center, while Asia Pacific users can quickly and efficiently back up to Code42's regional data center.
