Mozy and the Award For Aspirations in Computing

Did you know?

In 2010, women received only 18% of the Computer Science degrees awarded in the U.S. despite the fact that women earned almost 60% of the undergraduate degrees awarded in the same year! And this number has been steadily declining since a high point in the 1980s when women received 37% of the Computer Science degrees earned.

We here at Mozy love diversity and believe that we need more women in technology and especially in computer science. That’s why we’re proud to support organizations like the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) Award for Aspirations in Computing.  This award honors young women active and interested in computing and encourages them to pursue their passion for technology. We want these young ladies to know that we are excited about their interest and aptitude in computing!

Mozy is an enthusiastic signature sponsor for our local Aspirations in Computing award luncheon and we encourage technically inclined young women all over the U.S. to apply for this award and get involved in organizations like this that encourage and nurture technical talent.

We can’t wait to celebrate the achievements of these young women and their Aspirations in Computing!

The Mozy Mac Client – Better and Better

Mozy for Mac is Improved!

In December we released Mac Client 2.9 and are very proud of the improvements made in this version and in the great community feedback we’ve gotten. The newest Mac Client includes:

  • Awesome performance increases
    • More courteous resource handling – if you’re running another process that needs more memory or CPU, Mozy automatically backs off until your system has less going on.
    • Large file CPU optimizations are much kinder to your Mac when backing up large files
    • Better file scanning so that a file won’t be re-uploaded for backup if only metadata changed
    • Pausing a backup is honored much more quickly
  • Day-by-day backup speed throttling.  Want to limit bandwidth use on weekdays?  No prob, Mac Client Settings let you control how much bandwidth Mozy uses on each day.
  • AES Encryption for all files encrypted with a private key – Mozy security gets better and better!
  • Mountain Lion Notification Center integration for backup notifications and updates.
  • Restore Search – the Mac Restore Client now lets you search for a particular folder or file in addition to the file system navigation options you’ve always enjoyed.

Hear directly from the developers! Listen to an interview with Lance Helsten, team lead on the Mozy for Mac developer team.
If you’re using a pre-2.9 release of the Mac Mozy client, you’re going to want to upgrade right away to enjoy all of these new features and performance enhancements.  Get it now at http://mozy.com/download/

Mozy and Enterprise – Ready for Each Other

This week, Mozy announced a renewed commitment to the MozyEnterprise service and for many that begs, the question, “Why now?”

MozyEnterprise

Over the past few years, the Mozy Enterprise Backup Solution product has enjoyed many successes and endured some bruises, and we’re proud and excited to go public with the fact that the software (the Mozy business) and the business (Enterprise customers worldwide) are finally ready for each other.  Here are the main reasons:

  1. Mozy’s enterprise cloud backup solution has enjoyed years of hardening and testing.  It may not be perfect (cause claiming perfection is a sure fire way to anger the software gods) but it’s pretty dang great.
  2. Businesses, even very large businesses, are accepting cloud solutions as enterprise-ready and really great choices for their IT needs.  We no longer have to sell enterprises on the power of the cloud – the cloud has proven itself.
  3. Enterprises are seeing the complexity of their backup and file accessibility needs explode – from remote workforces to Bring Your Own Device policies, IT no longer maintains strict control over the places and devices where people need access to their data, and enterprise cloud backup (specifically MozyEnterprise!) is well-suited to the needs of a diverse workforce.

We are very excited to re-introduce MozyEnterprise to the world of large business backup software and can’t wait to revolutionize the enterprise with the best backup and data access solution out there.
