Introduction to CrashPlan
DescriptionHere's how Wikipedia describes CrashPlan backup software:
CrashPlan is backup software that allows Windows, Mac, Linux and Solaris users to back up their data to an offsite data center, computers belonging to friends and family, as well as to attached drives / shared folders. There is a free version (for non-datacenter backups) and CrashPlan+ which is for backing up to CrashPlan's servers. Both versions allow users to back up data automatically.
How it can be used on your NASIf you are the owner of a NAS from QNAP, you can install CrashPlan and use it to backup the contents of your NAS to the CrashPlan data center, to other computers and/or external harddisks. You can also allow incoming backups, so that you and your friends and family can back up valuable documents and files to your NAS.
I will not go into any more detail about what CrashPlan is. It's time to get it installed and set up on a QNAP NAS. This installation method does not require SSH tunneling.
