EMC announces hefty price hike for Mozy services

Plans to change from a single licensing model for all systems to separate schemes for desktop and server computers

EMC this week confirmed that it has notified customers that a massive price increase is about to kick in for users of its hosted MozyPro backup and recovery service

EMC gained the storage services last year with its purchase of Berkeley Data Systems. Just last month, EMC unveiled MozyEnterprise, which incorporates technology from three Mozy services along with pieces of EMC offerings such as RSA Security Inc. tools.

The company said it has contacted all MozyPro users to announce plans to change from a single licensing model for all systems to separate schemes for desktop and server computers. EMC said the current model is not a sustainable business model. All customers that sign up for the service from March 1 onward will be charged under the new pricing scheme, the company said.

Some monthly fee increases include from US$8.95 to $24.45 for a single server license and 10GB of storage, from US$29.75 to $69.75 for five servers and 20GB of storage, from US$89.50 to $244.50 for 10 servers and 100GB of storage, and from US$329.00 to $1,014 for 20 servers and 500GB.

EMC said it will "grandfather" current holders of MozyPro licenses to the current price list. These customers have 30 days to buy additional storage capacity at current prices.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
