According to TechCrunch, EMC has acquired Mozy, a popular online storage start-up. Mozy has become an important part of my small portfolio “go to” Web-based services along with Paypal, StumbleUpon, eBay and Google Reader. Mozy works because it’s a snap to set up and configure, user-friendly and, most important, it does the job. I’ve been using the free version, which gives you 2GB of storage. As much as it sucks when a cool start-up is snapped up by a corporate behemoth, it’s encouraging to see that Mozy attracted a $76-million takeover offer – a huge win for its investors who provided $1.9-million in financing. Here’s hoping EMC doesn’t screw up a very good thing.
