The Mozy Android app

Mozy Android app

The Mozy Android app is now available!

You can find the app in the Android market (either send the app to your device online or access and download the app from the market on your Android device).

Like the Mozy iOS app, MozyHome users can access their Mozy backed up files from their mobile device. Additionally they can download the file and use it with other Android apps that support the file type.

Three restrictions do apply:

  • Only users in the U.S. and Canada can access the Mozy app in the Android market. (A global update is planned to release soon.)
  • The Mozy app only works with MozyHome accounts at this time. (An update for MozyPro customers is already under development.)
  • If you have opted to encrypt your backups with your own private key, this Android app version cannot decrypt your files.

Mozy and VMware Join Forces

Today is “virtual moving day” here at Mozy.  While our offices and focus remain the same, Mozy employees are transferring as an intact team to VMware from our mutual parent company, EMC.  VMware and the Mozy team will continue the full portfolio of Mozy services.  In addition, staff from both companies will begin to integrate longer-term development plans central to building and delivering hybrid cloud solutions.  EMC retains the Mozy business as it has been delivering it for over four years now.  An operational support agreement between EMC and VMware is in place to make this possible and ensure no impact to Mozy customers.  We’ve developed a strong partnership with VMware and over these past several months it has become increasingly clear that moving to VMware will allow us to take advantage of and extend the synergies we’ve been building between the companies.   VMware and Mozy share a vision for how cloud computing will transform IT and help businesses achieve greater agility.  By joining forces, we believe we can accelerate the development of offerings that businesses are looking for.

Mozy customers will experience our service just the same – our service offerings, data centers, and customer support are completely unchanged.  Mozy customers can count on us continuing to improve and invest in our existing services.  In the future they can also expect greater interoperability between Mozy and VMware environments, and complementary end user and server-related services.

So we’re excited about this “virtual move,” and are confident it will be a very positive one for Mozy customers and the Mozy team. Also, check out what VMware had to say about today’s announcement.
