I have been running CrashPlan for a while now, and, other than some minor issues (backup speed to their central location is the big one), everything has been going grand. I use it to backup about 600GB of photos and videos, 500GB+ of VMs, documents, source code and a fair whack of other stuff… In total, about 2TB of data.
Anyway, here are some tips i have figured out over the last while for making Crashplan work a little better…
- Speeding up your backup
- Installing CrashPlan on a headless (no monitor or GUI) Ubuntu Server
- How to get terabytes of data into the cloud using Crashplan Seed Drive
I am also in the process of doing some further tests with iSCSI drives linked to the Cloud, and other weird and wonderful things… once I have finished, i will upload extra stuff here.
