Gmail data lost

This week I'm going to post on a recent event demonstrating the need for remote online-content backup. Namely that users of Gmail ended up losing some emails.

Of course this is extremely timely, although perhaps if they would have given us another month it would have been nicer ;)

I guess this is our way of "unofficially" announcing the availability of support for backup of Gmail by the end of January and backup of other Google account data to follow shortly. Here are some features to expect.

-Backup all remote data to our secure data center
-Export all remote data to your local computer as a single export file
-Receive a monthly DVD with all data on it
-Backup entire history of emails

Until the end of January, we strongly suggest following these instructions to backup your gmail:

As well, consider backing up your other data, such as:
-Google Calendar
-Yahoo! Mail
-Corporate data such as
-Online bookmarks

Changing gears, I spent some time this week playing with Peter Secor is one of the founders and is a friend of a friend back from his days at Micromuse where he was a superstar. I think the idea is really cool - when they pull it off, it will be a killer application. The idea seems to be around backing up your hard drive using file sharing in a peer-to-peer network - you could compare it to bit torrent. Anyhow the bottom line is they are talking about $2.95 per month to backup 10gb. Right now I am using (IronMountain Digital) at $20 per month. If I were one of the big providers of remote backup, I would be all over Good luck to them.
