SALT LAKE CITY -- Berkeley Data Systems today announced the general availability of the MozyPro remote backup solution, and its initial customers include more than 2,500 businesses. The new professional remote backup service has the simplicity and ease of use that is synonymous with Berkeley Datas consumer online backup service, Mozy; but MozyPro has the enterprise features, power, support and scalability that businesses demand.
Weve changed the economics and usability of enterprise backup with our proprietary software technology, said Josh Coates, founder and CEO of Berkeley Data Systems. We quietly opened MozyPro for business in December; and in just the last three months, weve had more than 2,500 businesses sign up for the service.
Until now, businesses have had no other option except to use local backup methods including tape, disk, DVD or external hard drives; and traditional enterprise class disaster recovery solutions are expensive and complex. Today, more businesses are looking for a secure off-site backup solution because of government regulations, such as HIPPA.
Berkeley Data meets a pressing market need with MozyPro, a remote backup solution with easy to use enterprise quality features at dramatically reduced prices. The service provides a multi-tenant administrative console that includes reporting and configuration tools to simplify deployment and centralize management. Bandwidth throttling and near continuous data protection allow backups to take place quietly in the background. Military grade encryption ensures the data is protected before its sent to Berkeley Datas world class data center. Many other remote backup solutions are 10 times more expensive than MozyPro.
