    I’m really glad to hear that you have a disaster recovery plan, and that you are telling people to do the same. Even if a regular backup strategy is in place the total disaster scenario is often overlooked by small businesses. I co-founded CarbonCopy.EU just over a year ago to provide a fully managed automated off-site backup service that provides similar (we obviously think better!) protection to what Mozy can so you’ll understand why I share your views.

    If you don’t mind me asking what sort of data volume do you backup with Mozy? How long did it take to get fully backed up to Mozy in the first place? And how long did it take you to download it all again when you needed it? We find that with many small businesses having data volumes in the 100+Gb range, relying solely on their often annoyingly slow internet connection to get it back isn’t an appealing prospect.

    Without sounding like an advert our aim is to match the hassle free benefits of an internet service like Mozy and add to that constant monitoring, a small business focus and most importantly pro-active help and support when it’s really needed.

    As somebody who actually has a solid disaster backup already in place I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on what we offer, our website which outlines what we do in much more detail is http://www.CarbonCopy.EU.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    It is amazing how many business don’t think about this. In the health & safety world we call it business continuity planning – the ‘what if’ planning whether it is fire, a serious accident or bird flu causing half you work force to be off sick – these can have a serious impact on your business. Of course from my point of view, prevention is the key, so fire risk assessments and proper planning can reduce the chances of this happening.
    p.s I can help with this!
