Cox Business Internet subscribers will be able to back-up online voice, data and video, the result of Cox Business signing an agreement with EMC’s Decho Corp. to make use of its Cloud-based, petabyte-scale Mozy online back-up service.
Launched yesterday, Cox Business Online Backup service will be available free of charge to Cox Business Internet subscribers. Other Cox customers will be able to sign up for the service on an a la carte basis. They will receive between 2 GB and 10 GB of online based on the speed of their Internet service, and can buy additional capacity if they need to.
Back-up files will be stored in Mozy secure data centers with 24/7/365 monitoring and security. Back-up file transfers make use of 128-bit SSL encryption. Local file copies are protected by 448-bit Blowfish encryption.
Cox Business provides voice, data and video services for nearly 250,000 small and regional businesses, including healthcare providers, K-12 and higher education, financial institutions and federal, state and local government organizations, according to the company.
“Mozy’s petabyte-class architecture is purpose-built to scale and handle the immense demands put on it by service providers, small businesses, and the over one million consumers that depend on us for secure, automatic online backup,” Decho Corp. CEO Harel Kodesh said in a news release.
