A while back we had the opportunity to test Mozy, and since then the platform has only gotten better. Initially we liked the entire concept, but wished for a few tweaks here and there. Apparently Mozy heard our requests, took them to heart, and has continually improved their service accordingly. It is rare when a company takes reviews to heart so quickly and without at least a minor amount of resentment, but all we can say is that we are completely impressed with Mozy. Our review of Mozy has been updated to reflect the latest developments, but the bottom line is that it is difficult to find a company as eager to adapt to market and customer needs.
Where will Mozy be in a year? Nobody knows, but certainly the company’s dedication to improvement has not changed. If there is any weak link in the entire online backup arena, it would be that broadband performance is still not increasing as quickly as hard drive storage capacity continues to grow. Hopefully, fiber optics will solve this problem in the near future. When that happens, Mozy might be a standard feature on all new computers.
