Somewhere in an attic or a cellar most of us have a box full of audio cassettes or VHS tapes. You might even have 8-tracks, mini discs, Betamax tapes, and LaserDiscs. They were all leading-edge technology when you bought them. You invested time, effort, and money in these various formats, but over time, they all became obsolete. To a certain extent, that’s natural but, when you have to invest time, effort, and money all over again on a new platform, it can be both frustrating and expensive. How many times do you have to buy the same Beatles album?
Cloud backup is reaching a tipping point, just like the one the home entertainment industry experienced. Established cloud backup providers who aren’t keeping up with changing customer tastes and technologies are seeing customers lured away by competitors and new services.
Mozy is built upon a foundation that enables us to evolve our service as we move into the future. This past summer, we enhanced the underpinnings of our industry-leading cloud backup service to launch a new, more flexible data protection and access platform. This enabled us to launch the next generation of Mozy a few weeks ago, adding new features such as Mozy Sync and tools for greater flexibility for mobile devices. Our goal has been simple: Future-proof our business by building upon a foundation that allows us to bring the newest data protection and access features and services to our partners and customers—and at a faster pace.
Moving from one cloud provider to another can be just as frustrating as—and a lot more expensive than—rebuilding your movie collection again. That’s why it’s key for businesses to take the time to evaluate potential cloud partners carefully. Price and features are important, but no less important are sustainability, longevity, security, scalability, and a host of other criteria that must not be overlooked.
To help businesses whose backup providers have closed their services, Mozy is providing access to a free IDC white paper that offers advice on how to select a replacement.
There’s one reason Mozy is doing all this: We’re your partner in the cloud for the long haul.
