Ah, the holidays. That special time of year when we return home to our ancestral stomping grounds and spend a few special days in the company of those closest to us, and all of their devices. From cell phones to game consoles and everything in between, these tiny gadgets have cemented their place in our daily lives. You can’t attend a family party without someone taking pictures on their cell phone or playing some Bing Crosby on their iPod. There will be quite a few kids (and adults, too) falling asleep with visions of tablets and PlayStation 3s dancing in their heads.
More and more of our lives are taking place in the cloud, so the need for devices to access that information has increased as well. This year, as you gather with your family, take some time to be grateful for all that they do for you, and the devices that let them do it.
As part of our celebration of Movember, we’re excited to present this quick study of “Mustachios”. This infographic looks at some of the most popular mustache styles, who made them famous, and then who followed in their footsteps. Be sure not to miss out on the rest of the festivities here at Mozy, including a chance to help us donate $5,000 to the Movember cause. This cause also gives us a chance to share our favorite new Mozy feature – Mozy Stash. Stash compliments your existing back up and lets you sync files between computers and devices with ease. Please share the infographic and help us spread the word – long live the ‘stache!
When we posted about our new partnership with China Telecom, we didn’t do a great job explaining how HUGE the Internet is in China, so we threw this graphic together to demonstrate:
One takeaway is that while there’s a huge amount of Internet use in China, there aren’t a lot of cloud service providers available. As one of the first cloud providers in China, we’re looking forward to helping millions of Chinese Internet users discover the personal cloud.
Just another quick graphic to show how our digital lives are becoming more and more integrated with the cloud through email, streaming video and music, mobile devices like phones and netbooks, and services like Mozy that help people put their data in the cloud where it can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
Last time we did one of these, we wanted to show you how much data we create with our digital lives. Now we want to show you how data storage has changed over the years. It’s pretty mind-blowing. Enjoy!
