Mozy by EMC Updates Cloud Data Protection Platform
The new features are the latest developments in the Mozy product set following its earlier transition into EMC's backup and recovery portfolio.Cloud-based data protection solutions specialist Mozy by EMC announced an update of its cloud data protection service, designed to provide businesses with integrated endpoint data protection, productivity and administration tools for the public cloud. The new features are the latest developments in the Mozy product set following its earlier transition into EMC's backup and recovery portfolio and are built on the new technology platform–announced in the summer–which allowed Mozy to transition from device-centric data protection to people-centric data protection. In addition, expanded application programming interface (API) support allows partners and resellers to integrate with their preferred Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) or Professional Services Automation (PSA) systems. "It's been a big year for Mozy—continuing to broaden from consumer to enterprise offerings, and completing its transition into EMC's backup division," Jason Buffington, senior data protection analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group, said in a statement. "The addition of MozyEnterprise into the EMC Data Protection Suite adds an additional dimension to the EMC solution lineup and a broader range of choices for EMC customers."
Other features include enhanced storage management for provisioning and managing backup at a device level, while further developments in integration with enterprise software tools allow for faster, more-scalable deployments.
