Code 42 Software has announced a business version of its CrashPlan cloud backup product.
CrashPlan PRO is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses that don’t want to worry about varying backup costs.
Subscribers can choose between an "unlimited data" plan with a flat rate per computer or an "unlimited computer" plan that spreads a given backup capacity among any number of machines.
The unlimited data plan is available for up to three computers for $7.49 per month per computer. The unlimited computer plan costs depend on subscription period (monthly, 1 year, 2 years) and amount of storage, with two year subscriptions for 50 GB of storage costing $4.71 per month per computer (based on three computers).
The basic PRO plan covers up to 200 computers. There is also a CrashPlan PROe plan targeted at large enterprise use with additional features including geo-redundant storage, training and consulting support and LDAP / Active Directory integration.
All plans encrypt files with 448-bit Blowfish before upload via a 256 bit AES encrypted link and offer the options of private restore passwords and user-generated private keys. All plans have no limit on file size
CrashPlan PRO is available immediately to customers in the United States and Canada. Worldwide availability is expected in Q4, 2011. A 30 day free trial is available for new users.
