Iomega To Offer Integrated Local And Online Backup

Iomega Corporation, an EMC company, has announced an industry first in integrating local and remote backup in a single product offering. Iomega external hard drives are now rolling out with a new downloadable software bundle that integrates EMC Retrospect Express backup and recovery software with Mozy online backup service, thus, improving the convenience of securely storing, protecting and accessing important files.

This is the first time that EMC-owned brands Iomega, Retrospect and Mozy have united to offer consumers a single integrated hardware and software solution for nearline and online backup. EMC acquired Iomega in June, having previously purchased Dantz Development Corporation, makers of Retrospect backup software; and Berkeley Data Systems, the developers of MozyHome and MozyPro online backup software.

"The combination of Iomega external hard drives with Retrospect backup software integrated with Mozy online backup service means storing, protecting and accessing digital files is now easier than ever before," said Jonathan Huberman, president of the Consumer and Small Business Products Group at EMC Corporation. "Computer users now have a seamless backup system for local backup of every file, as well as backup to the cloud for files that warrant another copy. This bundled solution provides the versatility of anytime, anywhere access."

"Iomega storage devices provide tremendous capacity and dependability for storing all of a user's files while Mozy and Retrospect Express work seamlessly with each other so the user has both regular local backups of all files as well as an extra level of security and remote access for files stored online," continued Huberman.

Buyers of Iomega external hard drives can now choose the version of Retrospect Express backup software that is right for their needs, as well as the easy-to-use added bonus of 2 GB of MozyHome online backup for free or unlimited MozyHome online backup storage for $4.95 a month as per their requirements.
