Code 42 Software expands CrashPlan to Australia and New Zealand
Posted on 30-Aug-2012 18:57. | Tags Filed under: News.

Code 42 Software Inc., has announced the opening of a new regional office and a new data centre in Sydney, Australia.

“We’ve always had a strong customer base in Australia. Now, with the opening of our Australian office, we’re positioned to serve this fast-growing market much more effectively,” commented Matthew Dornquast, co-founder and CEO, Code 42 Software. “In addition, having a local data centre means we can deliver even better performance for our cloud backup customers located across the entire Asia-Pacific region.”

The new data centre will provide state-of-the-art, cloud-based backup services to Australian and New Zealand users of Code 42‘s CrashPlan products. These include CrashPlan+, CrashPlan PRO and CrashPlan PROe.

A local data centre also enables Code 42 to extend its popular U.S. “seeding” option to Australian customers. With this option, Australian customers have the option of shipping their initial backup to Code 42 where it’s then loaded directly onto CrashPlan servers. “This approach is extremely beneficial because it can save our customers a lot of time, especially those with large initial backups or where bandwidth is limited,” Dornquast explained.

The company will be hiring aggressively in Sydney in the coming months to grow the enterprise sales staff and expand the customer support team.

“We are thrilled about launching CrashPlan in Australia,” said Lauren LaVine, Managing Director of Code 42 Australia, Pty Ltd. “Our new CrashPlan data centre ensures our customers in Australia and New Zealand experience industry-leading reliability and performance, backed by local support.”

According to the company FAQ page all new users from Australian or New Zealand locations are automatically assigned to our data centres in Australia. Existing customers will have to reset their current CrashPlan backup to have it assigned to the new datacentre. This means existing New Zealand customers that prefer to take advantage of the lower latency connection to Australia instead of the US will have to upload their backup again.
