Crashplan

Code 42 just announced that they will discontinue their Crashplan Home services:

Darn … I was using this service for several years now and was quite happy with the silent, off premise backup for all of my machines for a fairly low annual fee. Now I have to go out again and find another service comparable to this one Sad smile.

One of the benefits was that you could run a headless backup from your Synology servers and I’m not sure there are others doing the same thing. Code 42 is going to focus on business users only:

Maybe, I need to look into it, I just move over to the small business option if the options and the price is right. One thing is certain … I will lose some time on this to research what to do next for backup …. oh well …
