Leading Online Backup Provider Selects ViaWest to Support its Expanding Business

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ViaWest, a leading provider of adaptable colocation and managed hosting solutions, today announced the addition of Mozy, an EMC company, and provider of online backup and recovery services for consumers and businesses, to its growing portfolio of customers. Mozy utilizes ViaWest’s colocation services to support increasing demand for its simple, automatic and secure backup systems.

Mozy experienced rapid growth within the last year at both the consumer and business levels. Since December 2006, the Mozy customer base has quadrupled. To support this growth, Mozy looked for a colocation provider with a proven support model and the ability to be flexible and adaptable to its expanding customer base. ViaWest provides Mozy with services that include a 1,200 sq. ft. colocation space, redundant power and high availability connectivity, all within a secure, enterprise-class data center staffed 24x7x365 by experienced engineers.

“ViaWest has the experience, the capacity and the resources to support our high growth and help us meet our enterprise service level agreements,” said Vance Checketts, Director of Business Operations for Mozy. “By expanding to ViaWest, we expect Mozy customers will experience even faster and more efficient backups and restores.”

Mozy is a simple and safe way to backup all of the important data found on laptops and desktops. A copy of the customer’s data is stored in a protected, remote location for safekeeping, so that in the event of a disaster the data is still retrievable.

“Being able to adapt to the changing needs of our customers to support their growth is a characteristic of a true production partner,” said Roy Dimoff, Chairman and CEO, ViaWest. “Mozy is a valued customer and we applaud their success. ViaWest looks forward to continue supporting Mozy’s colocation service needs as they grow in the future.”
