Magnus Box

Backing up & Restoring


At the core of Magnus Box is our ‘Chunking’ technology, which allows us to not only back-up and restore faster than the competition, but to be more efficient with bandwidth and storage as well.

Responsible for managing and controlling your backup deployment is your Magnus Box server; from this you can access and deploy your branded Magnus Box backup client.

Migrating your backup customers to Magnus Box provides the following benefits to your business not available in CrashPlan.

Magnus Box Server


Live Connection

Magnus Box uniquely maintains a live connection to the Magnus Box Server, allowing for configuration updates on the server to be instantly updated on the client. This also allows instant remote triggering of backup/restore tasks, client software updates, editing client backup settings and more.

Built-in SSL support

Magnus Box has built-in SSL support, with no need to buy your own SSL certificate (using Let’sEncrypt). This gets you up and running with industry-recognized secure SSL support.


Both the Magnus Box Server and Magnus Box client can be rebranded to include your company name, logo, and key messaging.
