EndPoint Backup, CrashPlan, Purchasing Licenses from TechServices
How to purchase licenses for the CrashPlan backup service through TechServices
How do I purchase a license for CrashPlan through TechServices?
Licenses for the CrashPlan backup service can be purchased for faculty and staff as a Unit purchase through WebStore. Licensing runs on a yearly basis, aligned with the University fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th) at a cost of $70.00 per user license. Licenses are pro-rated to $35.00 half-way through the year. A license allows one user to use the software on up to 5 devices with unlimited cloud storage. Once purchased you will have access to the CrashPlan client software and will need to download and install it on your devices.
- As part of the purchase you will be asked to complete a form that provides user information.
- The service uses the campus Active Directory for authentication, therefore requires a current valid UIUC NetID.
- Multiple licenses can be purchased by a departmental IT Pro on behalf of their users by entering their NetIDs into the form.
- If desired, licensed users can be placed into a department/college/organization that will allow a local IT Pro identified as a CrashPlan administrator to assist with configuration, backup and restore operations.
