Frequently asked questions

Why did Code42 retire CrashPlan On-Premises?

We retired CrashPlan On-Premises because we can no longer ensure the safety and security of our on-premises offering.

On-premises products require customers to perform manual updates to keep them current against new exploits and/or vulnerabilities. Our experience shows that customers struggle to consistently patch systems in a timely manner. By moving to a cloud-only offering, we ensure that all CrashPlan customers are always on the latest and most secure offering.

Will Code42 continue to help me with CrashPlan On-Premises through the end of my contract?

Yes, if your contact for CrashPlan On-Premises extends beyond the end-of-life date of February 28, 2022, Code42 will continue to provide assistance with issues arising from the use of CrashPlan On-Premises until the contract ends.

Can Code42 help me transition from CrashPlan On-Premises to CrashPlan Cloud?

The Code42 Support team can help you set up CrashPlan Cloud. Contact our Technical Support Engineers.
