EMC has also updated its Mozy storage backup service to make it easier for enterprises to use. The service now allows organizations to manage multiple accounts in storage pools. Rather than each account getting its own storage quota, an organization can pool all the accounts into one single quota, which means individual users won't have to spend as much time worrying about how much storage they've used. A new form of activation will allow users to sign on to the service without an authentication key, which EMC says could cut activation time considerably.
EMC will provide more details about the new products at a webcast launch to be held Wednesday.
