MozyPro Serves Up Cloud Data Protection for Martini Media
Martini Media, a digital media ad platform targeting affluent individuals at work and play, implemented MozyPro after a perfect storm of data loss: a stolen laptop, a hard drive failure, and a virus attack all within a short period of time. "Time is money in our business, and as I was dealing with the frustration of the virus I knew that we needed a solution that would be easy to set up and support everyone on our team," says Martini Media chief product officer Abe McCallum.
As a long-time Mozy user, McCallum quickly recommended MozyPro for the growing marketing firm. He saw the obvious strengths in the solution, which protects Martini's 50 users, evenly split between Macs and PCs, in six locations across the US, UK, and France. Unlike other cloud backup solutions, MozyPro makes it easy to customize the folders and file types to back up, meaning Martini Media can focus on protecting business-critical data. "The Mozy user experience is streamlined, the administration interface is powerful, and the Mozy backup process doesn't consume a lot of machine resources and bandwidth," he says.
Because MozyPro can be rolled out quickly, it took just two weeks to go from decision to deployment. Martini Media took up MozyPro just in time, as it turned out. "We had seen data disasters in all of our locations before we implemented MozyPro, and within a week of adoption, two laptops from the sales team died," he says. "Nothing was lost, and we were able to quickly restore both users. It takes more time to set up the physical machine than it does to restore the files."
After five years as a personal Mozy customer, and after seeing the quick results for Martini Media, McCallum knows that free, do-it-yourself backup solutions have hidden costs. "MozyPro is a product I'm proud to pay for, because I know that whenever problems occur, there will be someone there to stand behind the service," he says. "We're a fast-growing startup and MozyPro was the fast and cost-effective way to help us solve a very big problem."
