    Mozy has done me proud

    Mozy is a cool vendor and I can see why they were high in the rankings. I’m not into all of the syncing and what not that my kids are always talaking about, but I love the backup and recovery features. They save me time, money, and storage space. Thnak goodness that I don’t have to keep on buying those CD’s anymore!

    Cool beans

    Mozy is as good as they say minus a few of their features which I think could have been designed a bit better. Apart from this they are really good though. The program itself means I have to do almost nothing to secure my data. Let technology take the responsibility I say…!

    If only there was more space...

    I’ll start off by saying I have real respect for this backup system and it’s handy features. But when I look at how cheap other companies give away 50GB or more for, I feel like I need more room for my money as I’m starting to fill up my storage to capacity…

     
Mozy Pro is the professional version of data backup that is offered by the Mozy Corporation. The pro version is used for businesses and is really cheap if you only have a few computers that you plan on backing up. They charge per computer and per GB for storage. The main cost for the service is per computer since it costs $3.95 + $0.50 /GB a month. If you have a server then the cost is increased to $6.95 + $0.50 /GB a month. They do offer price breaks depending on how long you sign a contract for. So if you are ready to commit to a long term contract you can save quite a bit of money.

Features:

  • Easy to Use
  • Fast Backups
  • Secure Encryption For Your Files
  • Detects New or Changed Files and Backs Them Up Automatically
  • Automatic or Scheduled Backups
  • Remote Access
  • Cheap With Low Number of Computers
  • External Hard Drive Backup
  • Mobile App to Access Files on the Go

 

Product Philosophy:

If you ever need to retrieve your files just log back into the Mozy Pro site and go through the files and choose which ones you want to download again. It really is that simple with Mozy pro to keep your data safe and secure.

Security:

The security for the Mozy pro service is nothing less than stellar. You get full military grade encryption of your files as they are sent by a secure line to a backup server. You can use a managed encryption key or use a personal key for even more security. The data centers where your information will be stored are state of the art and have the highest security standards possible. If that isn’t enough for you then you can even set the software to automatically backup to an external hard drive while it’s backing up to the server. That way you have a backup on hand for peace of mind.

Storage:

Mozy pro’s storage space is nothing short of cheap. At roughly $0.50 /GB it’s easily the cheapest rate that you can get storage space for. If you get more storage space it gets even cheaper. You can get plans all the way up to 1 TB which should be more than enough for any business to back up all their files.

Ease Of Use:

Mozy is also super easy to use. All you need to do is set up your account and install the software. Once the software is installed you need to do is visit the website and login. Once you are logged in you can set up how often to back up your data, and what files you want to back up.

Help/Support:

Support is another area where Mozy really stands out. They offer a menu of support features with an extensive knowledge base, community forums and tutorials offered for all levels of service. Their technical support is on a tiered-level basis, but they make sure that the essentials are available to all of their clients. Phone support is offered as a premium support feature and is only available with their MozyPro program.

Summary:

In conclusion, if you are looking for cloud storage to save your companies data. Then Mozy pro is a great solution that costs a fraction of in house backup solutions. With a small monthly fee that costs based on number of computers and storage space you can tailor it to fit in your budget as well. The tools are very easy to use even if you aren’t a computer person and everything is as automatic as you let it be. So it’s well worth trying it out and seeing if it works for you.
