Mac Mozy Online Backup Service Announced

Berkeley Data Systems today announced the public beta release of Mac Mozy, an online backup service for Mac users, which offers 2GB of backup for free or unlimited backup for $4.95 a month. The service allows Mac users to encrypt and automatically backup all of their digital media content online, including collections from iTunes and iPhoto.

"The public beta was built by Mac engineers who understand the needs of the Mac community," says Josh Coates, founder and CEO of Berkeley Data. "With more than 1,000 participants in our limited beta, we're excited to be the first to embrace the Mac community with this unlimited online backup service."

Designed as a consumer service, Mac Mozy leverages Apple's Spotlight search technology, allowing users to easily select the types of files they want to back up. The service installs quickly and runs quietly in the background. Backup speeds vary from user to user, largely determined by the upload speed of their Internet connection.

Mac Mozy also offers an added measure of privacy by allowing its users to choose between a Mozy encryption key and a private encryption key. Incremental backups and block level differentials are included, which means subsequent backups complete at a much faster rate than the initial backup. Mozy's servers also retain the most recent version of a file as well as 30 days worth of previously modified file versions. Customers may retrieve files or versions of the files via the Internet or by requesting a DVD restore with next-day delivery.

The Mac Mozy beta requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
