Helping Mozy help MacsI'm a big fan of the remote backup concept embodied in Carbonite and Mozy. As a Mac user though I couldn't use either until recently, when Mozy released a beta Mac client.

Home RAID and LOCKSSGreat discussion here and on StorageMojo on home RAIDOver on StorageMojo the discussion is converging on a low-overhead (in human cycles) solution consisting of local NAS + some kind of automated remote backup. Anybody holding a piece of Mozy or Carbonite should feel good.
I've been a big fan of both Carbonite and Mozy ever since I investigated them for StorageMojo my other blog.So I was very glad to hear that Mozy had released a beta Mac client, well ahead of Carbonite.
