How different is ZOL's CrashPlan from other cloud backup services?

  1. If you’re on the ZOL network, CrashPlan data is zero-rated. That means it’s super fast and does not count towards any data caps.
  2. Backs up every version of every file - other backup services only keep a backup of the current file.
  3. Keeps deleted files - you no longer have to worry about accidentally deleting files.
  4. Incremental back ups - After the initial backup, CrashPlan will only backup new files or files that have had changes made to them saving you bandwidth and time.
  5. Faster recovery - our data centres are on Direct Liquid Backbone connections meaning lower latency, faster recovery.
  6. Local telephone support 24/7.
