To celebrate the release of Mozy 2.0 for Windows, we’re having a trivia contest! For the next week, we’ll be asking a series of trivia questions based on the theme of “All things 2.0.” We’ve gotten creative with our trivia, so get ready for some craziness! Here’s how it’ll work:

  • The contest starts today, May 18, at noon MST. After that, we’ll be asking one question an hour via our Twitter account, from 10 AM MST to 4 PM MST every day for a week. (If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can sign up for one here.)
  • The first person to tweet to @mozy with the correct answer(s) to our question will receive 5 points. The second person to guess the correct answer will get 1 point.
  • Answers must be tagged with the hashtag #mozy2 to be valid.
  • The contest will run for one week, so it ends on May 24 at 11:59 PM MST.
  • At that time, we’ll tally up the scores and the people with the top 3 point totals will get a 1TB external hard drive to use with Mozy’s new 2xProtect as well as a free year of Mozy!

Feel free to post questions in the comments. Good luck, and be safe!

UPDATE: We’ll now be posting trivia questions outside of the 10-4 MST window so that everyone can participate. Just look for posts with the #mozy2 tag.

UPDATE: The leaderboard is live! We’ll also be throwing some schwag out for random participants, so even if you don’t win the points competition, you could still pick up some awesome Mozy stuff!

Announcing Mozy 2.0 For Windows!

If you’ve read our previous product release notes on our blog, you’ll notice that we always say that we’re excited to release a new version of Mozy. While this is true every time, it’s especially true this time, as we’re pleased to announce the general availability of Mozy 2.0 for Windows! Why are we so excited? Well, just take a look:

  • Up to 25% faster upload speeds – we know that one of the difficulties of online backup is that it takes time to move data online. We’ve made some significant changes to our client that makes that process a lot faster.
  • New interface – while we still have all the customizability and flexibility that power users have come to love and rely on to protect their data, we’ve made the Mozy client to be easier to configure, easier to understand, and easier to use for virtually everyone.

and last but not least…

  • Mozy 2xProtect! – we’ve preached it for years, and now we’re helping you practice it! Mozy 2.0 now allows you to back up to an external hard drive as well as our online servers. This means that you can have the speed, convenience, and protection of a local backup, while enjoying the peace of mind and extra safety that Mozy online backup already offers. We call it Mozy 2xProtect. To learn more about Mozy 2xProtect and how it can make your data even safer, check out our 2xProtect page!

As you can see, Mozy 2.0 represents a dramatic step forward in our product. We’re thrilled to be offering you a better, safer backup experience.

You can download the new Mozy 2.0 Windows client at the following places:

MozyPro
MozyHome

Mozy 2.0 for Mac will be coming later this year.

Be safe!
