SEATTLE, Washington – November 17, 2008 – EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today established Decho Corporation (www.decho.com ), a new company focused on helping people protect, manage and enrich the ever-growing quantity of personal digital information in their lives, also known as an individual’s “digital echo.” Decho will be a combination of two formerly separate EMC businesses – Mozy, Inc. and Pi Corp. Decho will continue to offer consumers and businesses the top-rated Mozy-branded online backup service (mozy.com), as well as introduce new cloud-based services for individuals over time.

The personal information once stored in albums, boxes and filing cabinets—such as financial records, personal documents, family photos and videos, portfolios of professional work, and correspondence—comprises each person’s digital echo. This information is increasingly scattered across different computers, digital devices and web sites. The quantity of personal digital information produced every year around the world is now measured in the hundreds of billions of gigabytes and is expected to continue to grow annually by almost 60 percent, according to analysts. Moreover, the lifespan of this information is beginning to be measured in decades, and it is ever more valuable and often irreplaceable.

The shift of personal information from physical to digital has not yet been accompanied by a parallel shift in the way this information is organized and preserved in digital form. Decho will help individuals take full control of their digital echo through a set of cloud-based services that will enable easy and full utilization, organization and enrichment of important personal information.

“There is an immense, untapped business opportunity as personal information management inevitably migrates into the cloud,” said David Goulden, EMC Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “By bringing Mozy and Pi together to form Decho as a new subsidiary, we are creating a focused organization that can deliver on the promise of cloud-based personal information management and can help individuals everywhere preserve, manage and enrich the information most important to them.”

Decho’s initial service offering is the Mozy online backup service, the leading online backup service for both consumers and businesses. With over 900,000 users and over 25,000 business customers, Mozy safeguards over 10 petabytes (over ten million gigabytes) of customer information at its datacenters around the world. Mozy online back up offers the most comprehensive online backup solution on the market, and offers simple, automatic and secure online backup for both consumers and businesses, with support for laptops, desktops and servers running either Mac OS X or Windows.

Decho is wholly owned by EMC, which acquired Mozy, Inc. in October 2007 and Pi Corp. in February 2008. Pi was originally founded by Paul Maritz, who was named CEO of VMware earlier this year. The new company will maintain and grow its development and operations centers in Bangalore, Montreal, Seattle and Utah. The company will be headquartered in Seattle.


AN DIEGO, California – July 16, 2008 – Iomega Corporation, an EMC company (NYSE: EMC) and a global leader in consumer and small business data protection, today announced an industry first in integrating local and remote backup in a single product offering. Iomega external hard drives are now rolling out with a new downloadable software bundle that integrates EMC® Retrospect® Express backup and recovery software with Mozy™ online backup service, vastly improving the convenience of securely storing, protecting and accessing important files.

Mozy LogoToday’s announcement marks the first time that EMC-owned brands and market leaders Iomega, Retrospect and Mozy have united to offer consumers a single integrated hardware and software solution for nearline and online backup. EMC acquired Iomega in June, having previously purchased Dantz Development Corporation, makers of Retrospect backup software; and Berkeley Data Systems, the developers of MozyHome™ and MozyPro™ online backup software.

“Industry-leading Iomega storage devices provide tremendous capacity and dependability for storing all of a user’s files while Mozy and Retrospect Express work seamlessly with each other so the user has both regular local backups of all files as well as an extra level of security and remote access for files stored online,” continued Huberman. “This integrated product combination is the first example of EMC’s consumer and small business product division bringing computer users an unparalleled combination of the best hardware, software and services in the market today.”

EMC extends Mozy online storage to Macs

SALT LAKE CITY — Thursday, April 26, 2007 — Berkeley Data Systems releases Mac Mozy public beta — the first unlimited online backup service for Mac users worldwide. At $4.95 a month, the service allows millions of Mac users to encrypt and automatically back up all of their digital media content online, including collections from iTunes and iPhoto.

“The public beta was built by Mac engineers who understand the needs of the Mac community,” says Josh Coates, founder and CEO of Berkeley Data. “With more than 1,000 participants in our limited beta, we’re excited to be the first to embrace the Mac community with this unlimited online backup service.”

Designed as a consumer service, Mac Mozy leverages Apple’s innovative Spotlight Search technology, allowing users to easily select the types of files they want to back up. The service installs quickly and runs quietly in the background. Backup speeds vary from user to user, largely determined by the upload speed of the consumer’s internet connection.

Mac Mozy offers an added measure of privacy by allowing its users to choose between a Mozy encryption key and a private encryption key. Incremental backups and block level differentials are included, which means subsequent backups complete at a much faster rate than the initial backup. Mozy’s servers also retain the most recent version of a file as well as 30 days worth of previously modified file versions. Customers may retrieve files or versions of the files via the internet or by requesting a DVD restore with next-day delivery.*

Berkeley Data Systems is the creator of Mac Mozy and Mozy for Windows. Since the launch of Mozy for Windows in April 2006, the company has scaled to more than 180,000 customers. It now offers online backup to consumers and businesses from the small offices to the large enterprises. Berkeley Data is the industry leader in online backup with the first unlimited online backup service for the Mac.

Berkeley Data Systems Launches Mozy Unlimited Backup

APRIL 4, 2006 — Salt Lake City — Berkeley Data Systems launches free, secure remote backup at Mozy.com, an automatic remote backup service for any PC in any home or office. Users can access their encrypted data from any computer in the world with Internet access. Mozy offers a free alternative to external hard drives, expensive subscription services, or the complications involved with burning CDs or DVDs to the over 65 million home broadband users in the US*. Mozy software and two gigabytes (GB) of backup capacity are immediately available at www.mozy.com. Mozy software is simple to install, configure and contains no adware or spyware.

“At some point, everyone goes through the heartache of data loss — either through a hard drive crash, an accidental deletion, a theft, a flood or a fire. The obvious solution is automatic remote backup. The problem is that backup is complex and expensive. We wanted to make remote backup simple and free, so we built Mozy,” explains Josh Coates, founder of Berkeley Data Systems. “Mozy is designed to provide truly automated, secure backup to users without requiring training, investment, or regimented routines. Mozy is simple, secure and free — plus it allows users to encrypt data with their own private key, which means it’s Dick Cheney proof.”
Secure, Automatic Remote Backup

Mozy has a number of qualities that make it superior to alternative backup methods:

* Simple: Mozy can be set to automatically back up photos, email, contacts, financial records, and office documents. Users simply need to check the box, and Mozy figures out what needs to be backed up. Advanced settings are also available to users to customize backup sets by file type, size or location. Mozy also provides full support for email, including Microsoft Outlook files, even if the files are open and in use. Backups can be scheduled during off hours, or set to run automatically in the background throughout the day. These features allow users to set it and forget it.
* Scalable: Berkeley Data Systems has developed proprietary software that allows Mozy to handle millions of users and securely store thousands of terabytes of data. The data is stored in racks of commodity hardware running specialized software capable of storing and retrieving billions of encrypted files across thousands of disks.
* Private and Secure: Users can opt to have their data automatically encrypted with their own private 448-bit symmetric key on their PC before transferring them to the Mozy servers. The data is encoded by 448-bit Blowfish encryption and then transferred to Berkeley Data Systems’ data centers using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. The full Berkeley Data Systems privacy policy is available for review at www.mozy.com/mozy/privacy.
* Economical: Mozy is provided free-of-charge to consumers thanks to sponsored newsletters to users once a week. Users who wish to opt out of the sponsored newsletter can upgrade to Mozy Premium, which for a limited time is offered for just $19.95 for a year of service (that’s less than $2 per month), and comes with 5 GB of backup capacity. This price is about 10 times less than traditional online backup companies.
