Mobile file sync rescues OSU faculty member after hard drive failure abroad; gives her easy, self-service access to CrashPlan-protected research data from smartphone

MINNEAPOLIS – June 24, 2013 — / — Code 42 Software, Inc., developers of award-winning, private and public cloud-based endpoint backup solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today announced that The Ohio State University’s (OSU) mathematics department utilizes CrashPlan PROe to provide faculty, staff and students with secure, continuous protection of university data stored on laptops and desktops.

Since implementing CrashPlan, OSU’s mathematics department decreased by 98 percent the time IT spent installing and managing backup while empowering employees to access and restore lost files on their own. With fewer tickets to address, OSU’s IT team is free to work on other important initiatives, such as transitioning to a more user-friendly/self-service approach to laptop and desktop data protection.

“Tech people tend to get bogged down in the traditional system administration role,” said Tim Winningham, systems manager for the mathematics department at OSU. “Moving to a customer-experience service model allows us to get out of the file server business. Now we can devote more time to innovating and laying the groundwork for university-wide backup solutions.”

One of America’s largest and most respected universities, OSU has faced a continuous influx of consumer devices, such as laptops, iPhones, Androids and tablets. As students and faculty continue to migrate the university’s commissioned data and sensitive research onto these personal devices, the mathematics department’s IT team turned to CrashPlan for reliable protection across multiple devices. CrashPlan seamlessly integrated into the university’s Active Directory, and its cross-platform support protects all operating systems in use at the institution.

“CrashPlan has been extremely valuable throughout all the BYOD scariness,” said Winningham. “It’s helped us through this transition period by providing one piece of software, one interface, that’s easily deployable and easily scriptable across all platforms and devices. We look forward to expanding our CrashPlan deployment across the entire college of arts and sciences, so thousands more end users can benefit from it.”
