Mozy customers want more than Carbonite

When Carbonite acquired Mozy for $145 million more than a year ago, the news understandably spooked many long-time Mozy customers and service provider partners. What would happen to their data? Would their costs increase? What kind of support could they expect?

Carbonite made a good show of trying to ease concerns, but communications were apparently less than ideal. Many Mozy users were surprised when Carbonite started being installed on their systems – and based on the reports we’ve been hearing from users and our managed service provider (MSPs) partners, the migration experience has not been smooth.

Since their backup solution is going to change regardless, now is a perfect time for former Mozy users to consider alternatives like Acronis, which offers several advantages over Carbonite.

Acronis is at ITNConnect19

The floor is buzzing at the first full day of IT Nation Connect in Orlando and the Acronis team is having some great conversations as nearly 3,000 MSP professionals are roaming the show floor. As Gold Sponsors of this year’s event, it’s great to hear that so many attendees who are looking to expand their business are finding value in the program and their interactions with different vendors.

And since today is also Halloween, plenty of our peers are having fun with costumes and candy, making the show floor as festive as it is informative. 

While visiting Acronis at Booth #108, attendees expressed a lot of interest in many of the presentations that directly touched on concerns facing MSPs – particularly those regarding the rise in cyberthreats that Acronis has been addressing.

We’re proud to be Gold Sponsors for this year’s event and are hoping to meet as many of the attendees as possible – especially since we have a lot to talk about with anyone looking to build and expand their business.

Decisions, Decisions: How MSPs Can Use Third-Party Reports When Considering Ransomware Solutions

A valuable aid in determining whether legacy data protection and cybersecurity solutions are effective against modern cyberthreats is to leverage independent third-party research. These parties measure the actual performance and protection of competing solutions.

These studies can be vital, providing the kind of unvarnished, professional analysis that most MSPs, VARs and IT pros cannot do on their own – helping them determine whether or not the vendor they use (or are considering) will protect data against today’s threat landscape.
