Code 42 Software opens regional office and data centre in Sydney, Australia

Sydney – 27 August 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) - Code 42 Software Inc., developers of award-winning onsite, offsite and online backup solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today 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 users of Code 42‘s CrashPlan products. 

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.” 

Code 42 Software, a privately held company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been developing software to protect the world’s data since 2001. Code 42’s enterprise backup solution, CrashPlan PROe, is used by thousands of companies around the world to safeguard their data. The company also offers industry-leading backup software for homes and small businesses: CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO. All products offer multi-destination, cross-platform backup onsite, offsite and online.
