There’s no shortage of online storage and synchronization services on the market, from Box.net to Dropbox to Apple’s iCloud to Seattle’s very own TappIn (acquired last month by GlobalScape).
Now, here comes another player, and boy does it have deep pockets. Seattle-based Mozy, the unit of storage giant EMC, today is announcing the public availability of Stash.
Like the name suggests, Stash provides individuals with a place to store files and then access them on multiple computers. That’s different from how the company’s traditional backup service works, since files aren’t accessible on multiple computers or devices.
“Mozy has always protected our customers’ data against catastrophic loss,” said Russ Stockdale, general manager of Mozy. “With Stash, Mozy customers will see a huge increase in the value they get from protecting their data with Mozy. Stash makes it easy to move from your computer at the office to your computer at home to your smartphone or tablet without having to email files to yourself, or mess around with USB drives.”
The new Stash service is available to MozyHome customers using the 2 GB free, 50 GB or 125 GB plan.
