Amazon S3

S3 is one of those few solutions that work for everyone at any range. From small startups to corporate giants, S3 has something to offer all businesses with its infinite scalability and absolutely brilliant pay structure. Coming from the personal experience of having experienced both the small and big company aspect, S3 is your best bet for any and all cloud storage needs.

Mozy

As described earlier I would warn prospective users of their past behavior in terms of changing plan structures regardless of impact to their customers. But they did provide an expedited method to migrate your data to other backup service providers, and their product is high quality so it balances out somewhat. With that in mind Mozy has positioned itself well for both the individual and the corporate markets, and works well in both environments. Their integration with AD and administrative features do make them attractive as a corporate tool (enterprise version). In the end though, especially for the individual or small business, it may come down to how much data you need backed up. Mozy is definitely not the cheapest option on the market

Pros

Amazon S3

  • Nearly every web framework now has integrations with the service as an easy plug-and-play storage solution.
  • General integration is so good there are tons of third-party tools like Transmit (for mac) you can mount S3 as a remote disk for easy access, and even Amazon's own web portal for using S3 has gotten quite good.
  • It's incredibly easy to offload all the expensive bandwidth operations for your typical website or app to S3, and, assuming your services are not yet HTTP2, you even get the benefits of sharding.

Mozy

  • Performance Settings: Mozy can be configured to run very smoothly in the background with minimal performance degradation. It provides network bandwidth throttling, backup speed, and backing up only when idle option. From my own experience I usually do not notice any performance degradation when Mozy is running. Of course a good network or Internet connection is vital.
  • Restore: file restoration is simple and intuitive. The user can restore logical backup sets (e.g. all photos) or file based (select the folder or file you want restored). Files and folders can be restored with the latest version or earlier version. Rename and overwrite options provide further flexibility.
  • Sync: with Mozy you can sync file across multiple devices including mobile. Access to your corporate files via smart phone is a secure manner is very useful.

Cons

Amazon S3

  • While S3 has a huge list of available services, the services themselves tend to be lacking, such as the web server capability being able to only host static HTML content.
  • The additional capabilities have gotten a bit "out of hand" in terms of the amount of services available, which seemingly follow no particular grouping, which can make venturing beyond basic S3 storage services a daunting, and confusing endeavor.
  • Not having any storage "packages" for serving data is a big negative, as we would feel more comfortable with a set package, and a known monthly cost, rather than a fluctuating service billed by time x data.

Mozy

  • The pricing structure is dated and not competitive.
  • Somewhat confusing user interface that has caused issues for the typical end user.
  • Slow speeds when backing up.

For the clients we have using this service, we fully plan to renew the subscription. However, that may change as our client's business grows and they have a need to add visualization and other server types to their environment

Alternatives Considered

Amazon S3

Amazon S3 has far more features, capabilities, and geographic locations. The competitor is also not fully compliant with the requirements of some clients.

Mozy

Mozy Pro is a great product for entry level and small businesses. It provides simple, effective backups with little to no technical expertise being required by the end users to benefit from it. I found that Code42's CrashPlan, was better when our storage needs increased dramatically, and users wanted a fresher interface than Mozy offered. We outgrew it, essentially. For small businesses, Mozy is tough to beat, but as you venture into the Enterprise market, Code42's product might be a better fit.
