Mozy Sweetens Pot for Partners

Mozy, the home and SMB online backup service owned by EMC Corp., refreshed its reseller program this week with a new partner portal, new tools and new benefits. Mozy currently has about 6,000 partners who resell the MozyPro version of the service, as opposed to the MozyHome edition. Members of the EMC Velocity partner program also resell MozyPro.

According to Seattle-based Mozy, about 70,000 businesses currently use the MozyPro service. Features unique to the higher-end MozyPro service include server backups and tools for backing up data locally as well as remotely in the Mozy/EMC data centers.

The new portal, called the Mozy Reseller Portal, will have MozyPro case studies, marketing tools, product documentation, training courses and access to the Mozy Support portal. An upgrade to the Mozy Administrative Console now gives resellers a consolidated view of backups, purchases and other metrics for themselves or that they can automatically send to customers.

The Mozy Reseller Program now includes co-branding that includes a personalized sub-domain ("resellername".mozypro.com), the reseller's logo and "powered by Mozy" branding.

The program also now has partner tiers with different discounts, co-marketing programs and lead generation. The levels are MozyPro Authorized, Accredited and Premier Resellers.
