MyService 3TB upgrade for iMac/Mac Pro
Backblaze is currently offering a 10 percent discount to customers looking to switch from Mozy's online backup service, while MyService has announced the addition of a 3TB iMac/Mac Pro upgrade service
Backblaze has announced its plans to offer a 10 percent discount to anyone looking to switch services following Mozy's removal of its unlimited plan. Earlier this week, Mozy released a statement to its customers claiming that due to industry requirements it could no longer afford to offer an unlimited plan, but current unlimited subscriptions would be upheld until their expiration. In response, Backblaze released its own report that it would continue to offer an unlimited storage option with unthrottled bandwidth at a reduced price for customers looking to switch. Anyone can receive the discount by using the coupon code "byemozy" with their purchase.
MyService has released a new 3TB upgrade service for iMac and Mac Pro computers
A new 3TB hard drive upgrade service for the iMac and Mac Pro is being offered by MyService. The full service costs $300 and includes a new 3.5" Deskstar drive from Hitachi, featuring 7,200RPM performance, a 64MB data buffer, and a 6GB/s SATA interface. Service is performed by a certified technician who will swap the drives and transfer any data from the old drive, as well as ensure that the customer receives the physical drive. MyService also notes that because it is an Apple Authorized Service Provider any upgrades will not affect an AppleCare warranty. The company is located in Santa Clara, California and accepts orders Monday through Friday.
