Mozy : Free Remote Backup and Online Web Storage

Can you back up your data online? You need a high speed broadband internet connection and a free online web storage service. Mozy provides you 2GB of free, secure back up web storage.

In addition to free online storage of a full 2GB, you get open / locked file support, block-level differential backup (only backs up portions of your files that have changed since the last time they were backed up), 128-bit SSL support (to secure your data during transport), 448-bit Blowfish encryption (to secure your data on our server) and continuous or scheduled backup options. You can always upgrade to Mozy Plus for just $4.95 per month and get 30 GB of secure storage!

Probably you are still backing up your computer’s secure and important data on a weekly basis using CD or DVD writers. But since you cannot carry your data around with you always, that data is not accessible from anywhere in the world on any internet connection or cyber cafe. That is where online storage and back up comes in handy.

Mozy is brought to you by Berkeley Data Systems, Inc. Just set Mozy up and it will backup automagically. Your backup files will be encrypted and stored in a secure, remote location that’s only accessible to you from anywhere and smart backups ensure that its backup parts of a file that have changed, and also backup open and locked files.

Mozy currently supports Windows XP only. Mozy is not a file sharing service – it’s for backups only. If you are behind an HTTPS proxy, you cannot use Mozy as it needs direct outbound access through SSL port 443.
