    Choosing A CrashPlan PRO Subscription

    Applies to:
    • CrashPlan PRO


    This article explains the differences between the different subscription options for CrashPlan PRO.

    Sign up for the free 30-day trial of CrashPlan PRO to help you make the best choice for your environment.

    Unlimited Data Plan

    With the unlimited data plan, you pay for the number of computers signed in to CrashPlan PRO. At the beginning of each monthly billing cycle, your card will automatically be charged for each active device in your organization.

    An active device is any computer that shows up in the CrashPlan PRO administration console, whether or not it has backed up any data. If you no longer want to be charged for a device, deactivate it in the CrashPlan PRO administration console. Doing so will also remove any existing backup data for that device. Mobile devices do not count towards your active device count.

    There is currently no option to pay for more than one month at a time on the unlimited data plan. Your account auto-renews each month until you cancel, and yearly options are currently not available. 

    Unlimited Data Plan Summary

    • Unlimited data - no overage charges
    • Billed by the number of devices
    • Monthly licenses only

    Unlimited Computers Plan

    With an Unlimited Computers Plan, you pay for a shared pool of backup storage. There is no limit to the number of devices that can be backing up, but if the storage limit is surpassed, you will be charged per extra gigabyte at the rate of your current plan’s average per-GB cost.

    Yearly subscription options for the Unlimited Computers Plan are available.

    Unlimited Computers Plan Summary

    • Covers as many computers as you want, with a single pool of shared storage
    • Billed by storage space
    • Monthly, yearly, or two-year licenses

    Choosing A Plan From The Store

    You can purchase both the unlimited data and the unlimited computers plans from the CrashPlan PRO store. Enter the number of computers you want to back up and adjust the storage amount to fit your needs. The store calculates the average amount of storage per computer and identifies the best value.

    CrashPlan PRO Store Plan Options

    a Unlimited plan The unlimited data plan. Pay a flat rate per computer. Each computer can back up an unlimited amount of data. Choose this option if you are not sure of your storage requirements.
    b Specific storage amount plan The unlimited computers plan in one-month, one-year, or two-year lengths. Pay for a set amount of storage that you share among all your computers. Choose one of these plans if you know your storage requirements.
    c Computers Enter a number of computers (up to 200) to select a total number of computers for either plan.
    d Data slider Move left or right to select a total data storage amount for your Unlimited Computers plan.
    e Shopping cart Displays items selected for purchase. Click Purchase beneath any plan to add it to the shopping cart.

    Additional Considerations

    • Purchasing a subscription does not automatically create an account for you. It ties the subscription to your email address, but you still need to create a CrashPlan PRO account.
    • CrashPlan PRO subscriptions can only be applied to a single CrashPlan PRO organization. All users and devices created under that organization are automatically allowed to back up to CrashPlan PRO Online. Once a key is activated for an organization, it cannot be moved to another organization.
