Moving from Mozy ?


Back in March 2018, Carbonite acquired Mozy from DELL for $145m but despite the promises…..

“Carbonite is committed to supporting existing Mozy customers and partners. Therefore, Carbonite’s plan is to: 

  • Protect the data of existing Mozy customers and partners
  • Secure the investment that employees, customers and partners have made in Mozy
  • Enhance and expand the data protection capabilities of Mozy customers and partners through the Carbonite Data Protection Platform”

A year later, partners and end users started to learn that the only upgrade path was to move to the Carbonite platform, re-upload all their data and to face uncertain costs after the first year’s initial term.  The reason for this is because the Mozy platform is to be switched off! So, with your backup program and data retention going EOL, what do you do? You can either move to the Carbonite service or take this opportunity to review the market and bring your data back to the UK.  

With the latter, you’d expect to have double the costs as you’d need to ensure that you had your 30, 60 or 90 days retention covered?  and if you’re a Reseller or an MSP using Mozy, then the financial impact of such a move or migration to another service could be monumental.

Safe Data Storage are offering 90 days free backups with as much storage as you need to manage your migration to us. You can then choose to pay monthly, quarterly or annually (where you get 2 months free). No obligation, no contracts, no payment information is required for the first 90 days, you can then choose to continue to use our services.

If you are worried about the first large uploads for the initial data backup, then take advantage of our free seeding service. We will send you a USB drive or NAS that will be large enough for your first backup, you then ship that to us and we will upload it directly to our UK storage for you. Once complete, the next backup will be a relatively small incremental. You can then start building your 90 days retention for free.

We include our UK “only” support throughout your free trial so that you have all of the help that you need to migrate smoothly.
