Spiceworks Cloud Program Helps Mozy Reach 2.4 Million IT Professionals

AUSTIN, TX — March 25, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spiceworks?, the vertical network for IT, today announced Mozy® by EMC® has joined the Spiceworks Cloud Program. As a member, Mozy’s cloud backup technologies are now integrated into Spiceworks’ free IT management application, allowing 2.4 million Spiceworks users to access their Mozy account directly from Spiceworks.

“The ability to monitor our Mozy account from Spiceworks is a big win for our IT department,” said Jeremy Beeson, network administrator at Renaissance Financial Corporation. “Spiceworks’ cloud integrations help us work more efficiently by enabling us to monitor and manage our cloud services from a single interface.”

The integration of Mozy capabilities into Spiceworks will help IT professionals:

  • Understand when the last backup was completed or if there was an error in the last backup process
  • See which devices on their network are being protected
  • Assess the storage quota for each device so they can reallocate or purchase additional capacity from Mozy
  • Receive alerts in the Spiceworks Cloud Services Dashboard or via email when storage capacity is running low.

“Many of our business customers also use Spiceworks, and we want to make it as easy for them as possible to administer Mozy through Spiceworks,” said Gytis Barzdukas, Senior Director of Product Management at Mozy. “It’s a growing community of IT managers and service providers, and we’re happy to team up with Spiceworks so that more IT professionals and businesses can learn about the world-class cloud backup service we offer.”

The Spiceworks Cloud Program gives cloud providers a way to simplify the lives of IT professionals by reducing the number of management interfaces they need to use each day. It also helps them reach 2.4 million Spiceworks users from the application they use to discover, monitor, manage, and provision their favorite services.

“As SMBs continue their push to the cloud, Spiceworks is disrupting how the latest services are discovered, managed and marketed,” said Scott Abel, co-founder and CEO of Spiceworks. “We’re providing a platform cloud vendors can use to tap into the power of our network and reach IT professionals as they’re researching and deploying the latest services.”

Current and prospective Mozy customers can access the Mozy interface for free by downloading or updating their Spiceworks application to the latest version 6.2.
