EMC Boosts Mozy Pro Prices Up To 300%

In an e-mail sent to MozyPro resellers this week, EMC announced new pricing for online backup of servers via its MozyPro division effective March 1. Users that purchase plans under the current pricing will be grandfathered in, so if you were thinking that MozyPro was the right answer for your servers, sign up now. Of course, you also may want to consider another provider, like Intronis Technologies' eSureIT or IBackup Professional, now that MozyPro is in their price range.

In an e-mail sent to MozyPro resellers this week, EMC announced new pricing for online backup of servers via its MozyPro division effective March 1. Users that purchase plans under the current pricing will be grandfathered in, so if you were thinking that MozyPro was the right answer for your servers, sign up now. Of course, you also may want to consider another provider, like Intronis Technologies' eSureIT or IBackup Professional, now that MozyPro is in their price range.The new pricing is more in line with the pricing for Mozy Enterprise. The price for a SOHO customer with 1 server and 10 GB of data will jump from $8.95 a month to $24.45 (enterprise would cost $32.75). For 10 servers and 100 GB, it jumps from $89.50 to 224.50 vs. $327.50 for enterprise. Similar increases affect their other plans.

Basically Mozy, now that you have to pay EMC prices for disk capacity, isn't the huge bargain it was before. SOB (Symantec Online Backup) is $43 a month to protect 10 GB and Intronis eSureIT is $199 a month for 50 GB and 10 servers. Now that price isn't its big selling point, Mozy will have to start offering more versions of files, snapshots, a centralized console, and other business-oriented features.

I expect the usual lamenting over how big, bad EMC is ruining Mozy and much gnashing of teeth.

Thanks to Jason Powell, a MozyPro customer, for blogging about this first and bringing it to our attention. You can see his blog entry here.
