Online Backup Services from Comcast

Comcast, my home Internet provider, decided to increase the spec of its offerings about half a year ago. For all its high-speed Internet customers, it is providing the opportunity for secure file storage through online backup service called Secure Backup & Share. This service is powered by Mozy, a well-known online backup provider currently owned by EMC. It was a CNET Webware 100 winner of 2009.

According to Mozy, some 140,000 hard drives crash in the United States every week. Files can also be lost other ways, too, including human error, when a computer is stolen or misplaced, and from viruses. Comcast says that it wants to help reduce the risk of data loss and is encouraging consumers to back up and secure their digital files.

The company gives all of its existing customers 2GB of online storage for free with the launch of the Secure Backup & Share service. Those who want to use more storage space can opt for a few different plans, including a 50GB storage plan for $4.99 monthly or $49.99 annually, and a 200GB storage plan for $9.99 monthly or $99.99 annually.

According to Comcast, Secure Backup & Share, apart from keeping files off-site in case of disaster, also allows customers to share files via a personalized Web site. Sharable content includes photos, videos, music, and documents.

Comcast costumers can immediately activate their free accounts and use the new online backup, which is currently only works with PC computers.

Main features:
1.      1. Quick and easy backup.
a.       Download once and files can be backed up automatically – no more cumbersome hard drives or burning CDs.
b.      Restore files easily in a few quick steps if disaster strikes.

2.       2. Secure reliable protection.
a.       Protect yourself against hackers with advanced encryption technology that helps keep files secure.
b.      Copy your valuable files to a secure location that’s always available to you.

3.       3. Convenient access and sharing.
a.       Get your own Website to share photos and files with family and friends.
b.      Access files from any Internet connection — including your compatible Web-enabled phone.

Goood stuff, SugarSync and Mozy offer free 2GB backup service as well. So if you are ballsy enough to have 3 concurrent backup programs running, you could have 6GB of backup!
