Decho More Than Doubles Number of Mozy Education Customers

Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced the number of educational institutions using Mozy(TM) has more than doubled from the previous year, demonstrating a continual need for efficient, secure and affordable online backup among schools ranging from K-12 to colleges and universities. As the industry’s most trusted online backup service, Mozy now caters to more than 700 educational institutions including Northwestern University, University of San Francisco, University of Hawaii and Brigham Young University. Mozy helps schools cut costs, save time and protect the valuable digital information created by faculty, staff and students.

Students and faculty are creating and accumulating an ever-growing body of valuable digital information in the form of lesson plans, research papers, homework and enrollment records, all of which need to be protected. Financial support is the lifeblood for all of academia; however, many educational institutions are currently experiencing budget cuts and a significant reduction in endowment income. This decrease in funding is affecting all departments, including IT. As a result, online backup solutions such as MozyPro(R) are becoming an increasingly attractive option because the institution pays only for the storage spaced used and requires no upfront investment.

“Protecting the information, research and intellectual capital generated by our faculty and staff is of the utmost importance,” said Barbara Sutcliffe, manager of business operations at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. “Like so many schools today, we are looking for solutions that are affordable, reliable and easy to use. While the cost of Mozy is minimal, the peace of mind it provides is priceless.”

Partnering with MozyPro has also helped the University of San Francisco substantially reduce the total cost of ownership of a data backup solution. Without MozyPro, the university would have spent in excess of $60,000 on hardware and software alone, not including labor, staffing and training costs. By using MozyPro, USF saved nearly 60 percent of its annual file backup costs. They are also able to perform their file recovery tasks five times faster than before. The extra hours allow the team to focus more on the needs of the university faculty and staff and less on technical demands.

“In the current economic environment, most universities have lost some level of principle in their capital investments; others are having their operating budgets cut, and still others are facing enrollment declines,” said Walter Petruska, information security officer at the University of San Francisco. “Against this backdrop of reduced budgets and uncertain revenues, the high startup and continuing operational costs involved in building your own backup/recovery solution can be avoided by using MozyPro.”

Backup of faculty and staff computers may be managed via the web-based MozyPro Administrative Console which saves valuable time and frees up already overstretched IT managers. This allows IT staff to focus on more important projects critical to university operations. A single administrator can configure and deploy the MozyPro backup software and centrally manage hundreds or thousands of users.

“Mozy saves educational institutions money, provides world-class protection and allows students and teachers to focus on what’s most important–education” said Dave Robinson, vice president of Mozy marketing at Decho Corp. “In this economy, educational institutions are being asked to do more with less, and Mozy allows these institutions to realize the benefits of an easy to use, secure and scalable backup infrastructure with very little upfront investment.”
