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.

    I'm one of those...

    I've got an old PPC that I use as a backup server, and in turn, I back up using Mozy. I've currently got over 365 GB backed up with the Mozy service...

    is there anything else that still supports PPC? Long shot, I know...

    crashplan does

    And is a whole let better than mozy (oh god, how mozy sucks).

    Oh, and Crashplan is so much sweeter, for you can backup to your own computers. So if you've got a couple of friends, you all install Crashplan, add an extra harddrive to each person's computer for your backups, and you backup to your other friend's computers. And they back up to yours and each other.

    And all for free, all in your control.
