Mozy vs Carbonite

with 2 comments

I tried out an alternative to Carbonite, called Mozy. I also had a look at the S3 Backup tools/service provided by Amazon.

I am impressed by all three. Each have their own pros and cons. But with the three of them, you have to wonder what is being done with your data…

Mozy and S3 are more feature intensive and offer such things as defining backup sets and maintaining several versions of those backup sets.

All I was really looking for was a backup solution I didn’t have to think about. In the end, that’s what Carbonite offers. The rest of my backup/recovery needs are provided by Acronis.

On another note, Carbonite appears to work on Windows 2003 Small Business Server. I’m not sure if that’s a financial oversight, but I’m happy that it does. 🙂

  1. Hi, i recently tried MEMOPAL memopal, both for back up on real time and ftp and file sharing. Still in beta test, you have free 250GB for trhee months. It is faster than MOZY and CARBONITE.

  2. I have heard of a new solution hitting the market soon by a new company, AeroCrypt Inc. It apparently backs up all of your data from both your mobile cell phone (not just contacts and calendar) and your PC and transfers your data from your cell to your PC at the same time. My friend has been raving about it being the next best solution, so I will be watching for it soon. They also allow users to have their cell phones act as authentication factors into their PC and provide other security features unlike online back up companies…can’t wait to see it!
