Intermedia Offers Online Backup Service for SMBs
Intermedia, a provider of Microsoft Exchange hosting, said that it has initiated an online backup service for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) built on EMC Corp.'s Mozy platform.
"The impact to a business can be significant if customer contacts or key records are lost," said Jonathan McCormick, Intermedia chief operation officer. "Losing or damaging a computer is not always preventable, but losing data is preventable with Online Backup," he said.
Users can set up and manage the Intermedia Online Backup service from the vendor's HostPilot Control Panel, which also is used for its cloud services, email and Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) calling, the company said.
Intermedia said that its Online Backup service is easy to set up and manage, runs in the background on users' computers, executes automatically to back up the current version of files and folders, and is cost effective.
The service is available both for Microsoft Windows and Apple Computer Inc.'s Macintosh operating systems. It will be offered through Intermedia's channel partners soon, officials said.
