EMC and Lenovo announced a global partnership to provide an unlimited online

data backup service specifically designed for the small business professional.

The new service is available on all new Lenovo ThinkPad SL series notebooks and

is powered by EMCMozy.

"We looked to EMC's Mozy as the premier online data backup and storage

service for Lenovo customers. We chose them specifically because of their

innovation and industry leading solutions," said Henry Hicks, VP-Sales and

Marketing, Lenovo Worldwide Services. "Because data protection and security are

growing concerns for businesses we wanted a world-class online data backup and

storage solution to complement Lenovo's world-class products. EMC's Mozy

delivers that with the right level of security and quality."

As small businesses around the world look for a cost-effective and easy way

to protect their information, they are increasingly looking to online backup.

Mozy provides a simple, automatic and secure online backup service to more than

8,50,000 users across the globe.


Key features

  • Unlimited online backup capacity, which enables professionals to focus on

    their work without managing a data storage quota
  • Open and locked file support, enabling business professionals to back up

    information without having to shut down any programs or interrupt workflow
  • Bandwidth throttling, allowing users to control the amount of bandwidth

    the online data backup service consumes

EMC also announced that it has opened Mozy's first international data center

located in Dublin, Ireland to better serve Mozy and Lenovo users worldwide. The

The Lenovo Online Data Backup service is currently available in Ireland,

United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore,
