“It looks like version 5 will be a native client (no Java) so it’s probably not going to work unless you have an Intel NAS for the Linux build (which isn’t out yet). Goodbye ARM and PowerPC compatibility.”
Quoting Patters : “It looks like version 5 will be a native client (no Java) so it’s probably not going to work unless you have an Intel NAS for the Linux build (which isn’t out yet). Goodbye ARM and PowerPC compatibility.” So, goodbye Crashplan. What’s next? DSM can sync out-of-the-box with :
OpenStack Swift compatible cloud services (IBM SoftLayer, HP Helion Cloud, RackSpace, RackSpace UK)
What will be the best successor?
I guess that CrashPlan still poses some advantages on being very affordable and in some features (specially unlimited versioning), so much that users may consider to upgrade their NAS systems. I started out with an ARM QNAP and a few years upgraded do a Synology with a x86 processor mainly because of memory expansibility but also because Java was more reliable on x86 back then.
On the other hand, we don’t actually know what Code42 is going to do about each and every platform. I do think that going away from Java is a good thing: the memory occupancy of the CrashPlan process is just incomprehensibly high, when compared with a DropBox or OneDrive setup.
From what I’ve seen of the 5.0.1 distribution, there’s Java still there, at least for the server. There are still bits of Java in the client end as well, but not to the extent of the server.
