EMC Drops MozyPro Server Prices

In an e-mail to Mozy resellers, EMC this week announced that it was dropping the price for server backups via MozyPro from the $1.75 per GB per month level they reached in February (see Previous Blog Entry) to 50 cents per GB per month, curiously the same amount it was charging before the price hike earlier this year. Server coverage is still $6.95 a month for each protected server, up from the $3.95 pri
In an e-mail to Mozy resellers, EMC this week announced that it was dropping the price for server backups via MozyPro from the $1.75 per GB per month level they reached in February (see Previous Blog Entry) to 50 cents per GB per month, curiously the same amount it was charging before the price hike earlier this year. Server coverage is still $6.95 a month for each protected server, up from the $3.95 price that covered both servers and workstations in the distant past (2007).While I'm always happy when prices come down, especially at EMC (I am saving up for a Symmetrix of my very own), it seems clear that Mozy's consumer image and feature set wasn't winning over the SMB set with the higher price.

So all the SMBs among you, spring for a few bucks and get your critical data backups off-site already.
