EMC has been busy since completing its acquisition of storage firm Iomega last month. The company has taken backup solutions from two of its previous acquisitions—Dantz Development Corp. and Berkeley Data Systems—and bundled them with Iomega external hard drives, combining local and remote backup systems into neat little packages.
According to EMC, Iomega hard disk drives will start shipping with a downloadable software bundle this month. That bundle will include MozyHome, a remote backup tool for Windows and Mac OS that can back up files over the Internet to EMC's data centers. Users will get 2GB of storage capacity for free, and they'll have the option to upgrade to unlimited storage for $4.95 a month.
The bundle will also feature three versions of Retrospect Express local backup software: one for straightforward consumer backups, another for more advanced backups (with support for network-attached-storage devices), and a Mac version of the latter.
Iomega's portable hard drive lineup includes 2.5" models with capacities of 80GB to 320GB, as well as 3.5" drives that can store 500GB to 1.5TB. You can apparently use Mozy remote backups without buying one of the drives, but it looks like Retrospect Express software isn't free.
